Follow Friday (13)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

(anyone else think it's creepy that my 13th Follow Friday is on Friday the 13th of my birthday month? No?)

Question of the Week: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

Hmm well I do love music. I'm kind of particular when it comes to certain genres though. I only like a few select country songs, and I'm even pickier when it comes to rap and hip-hop (any song that's not defiling women and has a good beat is what I shoot for, which is why that list is pretty small). I really like old rock and current rock. I've gone to a lot of concerts for older bands, such as: Journey, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Billy Idol, Scorpions, Foreigner, Bryan Adams, George Thorogood, Judas Priest, The Eagles, and so many others. Sadly, I have yet to go to a concert of a newer band, but I love: The Foo Fighters, Foster the People (not Pumped Up Kicks anymore, because we all know how overplayed that song is), Mumford and Sons, The Killers, RHCP, Blink-182, The All-American Rejects, Cage the Elephant, Christina Perry, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Eminem (may have to do with my Detroit roots, but he's the only rap I listen to "regularly"), Green Day, Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, MUSE, Taylor Swift, and The Wallflowers. A random assortment, but I like what I like. Also, classical music has always been a passion of mine.
