All of this music talk has been great. Best-of lists. One hit wonders. B-sides. Hated songs. I love it.

Here's my replacement for the completed "top 333 fav songs of all ever" thread.

My MP3 collection has over 3000 artists. For each one I can confidently say I like five of their songs, I'll drop a post here.

Starting with...

10,000 Maniacs

Genre: "alt-pop-soft-rock" (in other words, they were originally alt/college soft-rock, but their sound got popular and became mainstream)

Discovered: I heard "Trouble Me" in a small record shop in Concord NH circa 1989/1990.

Other: I've shared this elsewhere, but when the original main songwriter quit, the band took off. When he returned, they stopped having success.

HIGH FIVE:

1. Trouble Me
2. These Are Days
3. What's The Matter Here?
4. Because The Night (Live)
5. Candy Everybody Wants

16 Volt

Genre: industrial rock

Discovered: A friend

Other: Despite the main guy's father having worked for a record label at one point, he insists that did nothing whatsoever to help him in his 30 year career in the music business: "My father is the executive of nothing but failures and abandonment. He did work at an indie label for a while — before he was no doubt exposed as a pathological liar and an alcoholic."

HIGH FIVE:

1. Cloth Like Gauze
2. Dreams That Rot In Your Heart
3. Burn
4. Keep Sleeping
5. Two Wires Thin

3. Girls

3 Doors Down

Genre: rock, hard rock

Discovered: My cousin's girlfriend said she liked "Kryptonite" when it came out, so I grabbed it from Napster (much to Dr Dre and Lars Ulrich's dismay) and listened to it.

HIGH FIVE:

1. Train
2. The Broken
3. Duck And Run
4. Loser
5. Kryptonite

Here in the US you couldn't avoid 10,000 Maniacs or 2 Live Crew if you'd tried. Probably just didn't make a splash in Canada...
I would have avoided 2 Live Crew. And 10,000 maniacs just didn't make a splash with me in this thread. I missed them. Let me reprase: 3 Doors down is the SECOND group I have heard music from. I do recognize a couple of names like 2 Live Crew. :)

Finally an artist I recognize.
In parliamentary procedure, recognition is the exclusive right to be heard at that time by a member of a deliberative assembly. With a few exceptions, a member must be recognized by the chairperson.

With that definition, your original post stands. "The floor recognizes 3 Doors Down. The floor does NOT recognize 2 Live Crew!" =)
