I would think if something stands the test of time and still sounds great and enjoyable despite many repeated listens and spans across many generations in doing so, it then has integrity and is not just some trendy crap.

In response to the original question, I have no idea. I think a lot of it has to do with timing; the bands who've had the biggest impact on me happened into my life at right moment for me to fully appreciate and enjoy them.

This might better answer the question than how it feels or how much integrity the artist(s) pursue or claim to have.

"all the music that has positively affected your life" is certainly too broad. I mean, Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" has positively affected my life. Because I got to have a blast doing a mocking cover of it. In a band that billed itself as "experimental speed metal" but ended up more like Melvins-y grunge. That was fun.

Maybe better to look for common characteristics among the music that's been most important to you, independent of genre. I would think:

--making some attempt to push beyond the boundaries of what has come before, rather than simply to recreate it.
--(hand-in-hand with the above) being able to surprise me.
--lyrics that are, at the very least, not insipid tripe.
--some roughness or edge -- no excess of polish, no gleaming pristine surface.

Still, the answers are as vague as the question. Well, what do you expect when you're asking for the common threads between Prokofiev and Gillian Welch and Husker Du and Charles Mingus and the third Armored Saint album?

I feel ya. I know it was not well thought out question but I just wanted to inspire perhaps some interesting posts, such as yours critiquing the premise of this thread. It's all bueno. Husker Du are awesome, got into them only this year.

OK, so that's true of every song you like, so the question is pointless.
