Also does this happen to you guys often: you constantly listen to one single song over an extented period of time, say 2 weeks, after you finally get bored you then move onto something else and do the same thing again. Personally I think this a pretty effective way to memorise what happened in your life, when I listen to some certain music I'd remember what happened back then when I was listening to it over and over for the first time. I might not be able to recollect everything happened but I'd vividly feel the kind of mood I was having. I think you can use music as some kinda diary, if I wanna remember or "feel" what i was doing, say 1st year in univesity I just play the spesific songs I was listening to over and over again back then and everything just starts coming back to my mind.
Do you guys use this "musical diary"?
Music is absolutely a diary to one's life.
There's so many different songs that remind me of so many different things. Songs that remind me of my childhood, songs that remind of friends, songs that remind me of the parties (or "raves") I used to go to back in the day, etc, etc.
Green Day is not the greatest punk band. They are one of the greatest pop bands to ever live but they sold themselves out when they decided to sign with a big label and write more complex music, which I agree with, and was the right decision but disqualifies them from beign a punk band.
They decided to grow as a band, grow as musicians, write more challenign music from both a theory and social perspective and I think it was the right choice. But they're not a punk band anymore.
Punk bands write the same **** for years on end without ever growing or changing lile the DKM.

Best Punk Band Ever = The Clash. Every member of Green Day will agree with me. I love Green Day, but they don't beat the Clash.

Green Day have always made meaningless pop music. Before it was meaningless pop punk. They're still one of my favorite bands. I'm not going to blindly defend them, but I though American Idiot was creative. Even if it was meaningless pop.
I'll check out Dropkick Murphys, though. From your description (Angry Irish Punk), I think I might like them.
Just a few of the "bigger" names from various genres (jazz, IDM, reggae, acoustic/rock ambient, hip hop) I listen to. The actual list goes on & on & on... Music means the world to me, I'm always looking for new releases.
I don't consider myself a snob, but expanding your horizons wouldn't hurt you before labelling this or that band the greatest ever.
