"They Came From..." - Country Origin Compilation Series


28 Mar 2010, 3:33

This has been a work in progress for a while. I started this compilation a few years ago & thought i'd put it together in no time... however, that wasn't so easy. It took longer than i anticipated, plus i kept changing my mind on what bands to include. But gradually, thanks to the use of Last.FM, Wikipedia, & xhochy.org, I was finally able to filter & narrow it down a lot easier. It will still take quite a bit of time to include songs & links, but at least for the time being, i have started the band lists. More to be updated later...

They came from ... England - #1

1The Damned- There'll Come A Day
2Killing Joke - A New Day

10Blur-To The End
11Radiohead-How to Disappear Completely
12Doves - Break Me Gently
13March Violets-Lights Go Out
15Nosferatu-The Wiccaman
16The Bolshoi-Books on the Bonfire

21Adam Ant-Survival of the Fetish
22Fields of the Nephilim-Moonchild
23Visage - Damned Don't Cry
24Daniel Ash-Dream Machine
25The Mission-Deliverance

I like waaaay too many British bands... & it's official: according to a website i found that generates where bands come from, British bands take up half of my listening time. I honestly didn't know where to start at 1st when i started compiling these lists a few years ago, so i decided to make it easier on myself & just take the top 25 listed bands on my last.fm page... & these honestly represent the types of bands i listen to on a very regular basis, as well as including most of my all-time favorites (my top 4 ever are listed here)! I'm sure i'll like this so much that i'll make a 2nd & maybe a 3rd later, but this will suffice for now ;-) I'm still always baffled how there are so many good bands in a small country...

They came from ... the United States!! - #2
1Nine Inch Nails - The Hand That Feeds
2Soundgarden - Zero Chance
3Ministry-The Land of Milk & Honey
4Dandy Warhols - Wonderful You
5My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult - Devil Bunnies
6Interpol-Say Hello to the Angels
7Alice in Chains-Dam That River
8Until December-Free Again
9Revolting Cocks-Something Wonderful
10Juliana Hatfield-Dying Proof
11Failure-Smoking Umbrellas
12Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Need Some Air
14Garbage-Temptation Waits
15Concrete Blonde-Darkening of the light
16The Shins-Australia
17Sheryl Crow- There Goes the Neighborhood
18Faith and the Muse - Scars Flown Proud
19Deee-Lite-Good Beat
20Static X-The Trance is the Motion
21Autolux-Turnstile Blues
22Cypress Hill-Cock the Hammer
23The Wrens-Hopeless
24Beastie Boys-Gratitude
25R.E.M. - Can't Get There From Here

One would think since i'm from the States that this would be easy... but I really had to sort thru all the British bands to figure out what were my top 25 listened to American bands... interestingly, there were only 10 bands from the US in my top 50, & the rest of the 20 barely came in the top 100 bands! Not that there aren't enough bands in this country, but i just prefer British ones. However, i will say my favorite female singers tend to be American, so a few of them are listed here. Bands are listed in order of frequently listened to.
