What was the Very First Band that you Started Listening to that Got you into "Rock n' Roll"..? For me, it was "Green Day"... this was pre Korn years, lol.. when i first heard the Song "Basket Case" i was hooked, and they were my Favorite Band when i was a kid.. then their Next Single from their album "Dookie" was "When i come around" and i thought that was the Best Song i ever heard!..i thought Billy Joe Armstrong was like the Coolest Guy in the World.. i even used to try to imitate Green Day in my bedroom, lol, c'mon you guys know you ALL do it to your Favorite Band!.. i even dyed my hair Blue and Green, my Parents wanted to Kill me, but you know, its all apart of Growing up.. i even Remember buying my Very First Cd.. i was at the Record Store and i was kinda' into Rap too, so i had a Choice to make.. i was holding a Green Day Cd in my hand and in the other hand, was a Warren G Rap Cd.. which should i buy, Rap or Rock, Green Day or Warren G?.. well, i think you can Guess that i chose the "Rock Cd" and picked Green Day and the rest is History.. So what was your Very First Band when you were a kid that got you into Rock n' Roll??

    started my first rock band, I heard, were the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Incubus, back in 2002, of which now I'm still in love. I think they are the my favorite bands today. Then I discovered Korn and Rage Against the Machine, always in that summer, 2002, and from there I remained in love ... then I started, with Sevendust, Limp Bizkit, the POD, the Tool, Metallica, Mudvayne, Taproot , Disturbed, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, A Perfect Cirlce, ("Slipknot" now do not listen to them anymore), Stone Sour, Adema, Faith no More (which I love) Duran Duran, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Foo Fighters, LL Cool J, Deftones, Skunk Anansie, Smashing Pumpkins, Machine Head, Iron Maiden, Hatebreed, Sepultura, System Of A Down, Moby, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Filter, Chevelle, Audioslave, Creed, Blink 182, Oasis, Coldplay, Offspring, REM , Seether, Cold, Smile Empty Soul, Soil Saliva, 3rd Strike, and then over the years I've discovered many other great bands of the past, from Pink Floyd to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath to Kiss, Run DMC to the Beastie Boys .. . then I had a period where I was cooked Heavy Metal in general, I listen to a little bit of everything even pop music (but what comes up, in the early 2000s, more than not) then listen, classical music, Italian singer-songwriter. ....

    But my favorite genre, if you want to call it such, is the alternative metal / alternative rock / Post-Grunge;)

    I started listening to Nirvana, Hinder and ACDC when i was young and i guess they are what eventually got me into heavier music, Disturbed is the first band i truly got obsessed with, got all their CD's and listened to them everyday, watched their live tours all the time too. Slipknot also transgressed me from rock to meatal and whan i heard Korn they slowly took over as my number one band.

    Well, I was born into a metal the beginning I never knew anything else, my dad said I would fall asleep to metal music which is so funny to me. But, I remember listening to Godsmack, Fear Factory, Slayer...things like that. Also, I loved Green Day, too. My cousin and I would go into the room and just jam out to it, we would try to figure out cool music videos to go with the was great! :D
