    ...there are a lot of groups, as well as solo artists/individuals, that could be considered "influences" to my life. Let's see... one group.... I guess.... I would have to say U2. Not U2 so much as we know them today (although I still like them)... I mean the young U2.... when...

    Now You Know That You Are Real

    Of all the music groups I've enjoyed in the past, I'd have to say that one group that changed the way I viewed myself and my world was ;"the Moody Blues". They were a great band, with several main stream hits. Once I started listening to the words to their songs I discovered that...

    Smile Empty Soul

    They helped me through the dark times of my life and have shown me apart of myself I would admit was there.

    The closest one to my personal experience is most likely the RX Bandits. Each album is markedly different from the other, yet the whole discography could be played from one end to the other and never lose continuity. They're unique, creative, and tasteful, rarely ever resorting...

    Venus In Furs

    There are many (The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin,etc.,etc.), but I'd have to say it's a tie: Pink Floyd and Velvet Underground-or actually Velvet Underground with Pink Floyd a close second. I remember as a pre-teen lying outside sunbathing (yes, I did that then, but soon...

    "The Record Men"

    You'll have to go a ways back to figure that one out.

    Linkin Park

    This was years ago I was drowing in myself, I was so depressed, life sucked, I sucked, I hated everyday of existence, every moment, I just wanted out, but this band saved me from myself, they helped me get up and fight and keep going.

    Pink Floyd

    Being a teenager I first found Ozzy Osbourne to be my soundtrack. Then I heard The Wall and I knew its meaning, I listened to every track off the album as I went to sleep. Other people bricking up our hearts and our souls... The music was psychedelic and mind blowing and I...

    It's easy off the top of my head to write "The Beatles" which is what I was going to put at first but after a moment of clarity I realized The Ramones changed everything for me. I was 8. When I heard those 3 glorious chords, the vocals and the insane speed I knew something inside...

    Paint It Black In My Darkest Hour

    It's kinda tough. The band that first got me into music worshiping is The Rolling Stones, they're the one that made me sure that I wanted to be a musician and more specifically a guitar player. I've spent my whole high school years dressing up like Keith, the first song I...

    The Beatles

    As a teen I suffered from crushing depression. That combined with family drama and school pressure made me constantly miserable. The Beatles were the only thing that brought me joy. While my own world was falling apart, I would immerse myself in their music, their films, and...

    When I first hit depression, this band had so many songs I could relate to. I needed something like that, and they changed my life by filling up the empty space depression would bring over me, and allowing sadness to fall from inside of me.

    Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (d.r.u.g.s.)

    About seven months ago I was trying to get over someone who would never love me back. I almost ruined my life over this person. And then I discovered metal. It was really metal as a whole that helped me to come to back to my real self, but this group kept popping up again and...

    Greatest band ever! ... Well in my opinion at least. I remember just listening to "This December...Its One More and I'm Free" late at night over and over again, and I would just lie on my floor and draw and start zoneing out. <333

    I Can Name More Then One

    The first one was 'Fall Out Boy' then 'Madina Lake' and now finally 'All Time Low'.All three of these groups have helped me and continue to help me through tough times and I cannot ever thank them.
