Iron Maiden- Got me into metal beyond stuff like Metallica and Black Sabbath. Also, the reason I'm here.
Green Day- My first punk rock band
Goo Goo Dolls- A Boy Named Goo is the first music I ever bought for myself
Sleater-Kinney- Favorite band forever and all time. Also a gateway to indie rock in general.
Opeth- Got me to come around to growling vocals
Dead Kennedys- Took me beyond pop-punk into the old-school stuff
Blink-182- So many high school feels
Tegan and Sara- So many college feels
AFI- Met a lot of great friends though that community
Pig Destroyer- The first extreme metal band I liked
"COLONEL KLINK, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?!"
