1. Green Day- they were the first real artist to get me into music, and I started listening to them when I was 9. I remember going into my older cousin's room and trying to burn myself a copy of warning before she got home. She was the one who really got me into music. Through her i found green day, the strokes, the white stripes, and the clash
favorite song of mine is brat, and favorite album is insomniac.
2. The Strokes- I didn't officially get into them until I was 12 or so, they are amazing artists, who contribute a great amount of individual talent. They have an old fashioned, 60s/70s feel to them, with fun sometimes abstract lyrics. My favorite song of theirs is juicebox and my favorite album is room on fire.
3. Nirvana- the kings of the 90s
I started listening when I was about 10 or 11. I remember having the biggest crush on kurt Cobain when I was a kid.
and today he's a HUGE inspiration for me artistically and just living wise. They are truly a band worth talking about today. My favorite song would have to be lithium and favorite album would have to be bleach.
Edit: I think it's an Important mention that lana del Rey was a close match for nirvana. She is one hell of a singer/ songwriter. My favorite song of hers is bad disease and my favorite album of hers is sirens or born to die.
Honorable mentions: the ramones, screeching weasel, rites of spring, minor threat, the who, and the Descendents
