Music is probably one of if not the most important non-human thing in my life. You know how people are like "movie people" or "book people" whatever? I'm a music person, to the extent that I kind of...forget that television and movies exist a solid chunk of the time, or I don't have the time to watch them even when I'd like to because it'd cut into my listening hours. I can't play any instruments (anymore) & have no desire to make music but 90% of my special interests since childhood have been music related.

So, here's some junk I like, and some junk I've been listening to. I don't think I have unique taste at all, but I do have what I usually call very....dated, late 90s teenage boy taste so I guess that's kind of fun.
Or just check out my, I guess.

favorite bands:

Aka "things I don't get tired of"
My Chemical Romance, Type O Negative, Misfits/Danzig/Samhain, Lil Peep, Bad Religion, Andrew W.K., Against Me!, Ramones, Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Bayside, Anthrax, Streelight Manifesto, Operation Ivy, Blondie, Nine Inch Nails, The Cramps, Alkaline Trio, ABBA, Dethklok, Post Malone, White Zombie, AFI, Electric Wizard

If this doesn't scream "seasonal depression music" to you, I'm not sure what would. I've been trying to make a point to listen to more than just three bands (Type O, Danzig, Acid Bath) but apparently refuse to let go of Peter Steele projects. & There's just something about having two feet of snow on the ground that makes black metal seem like a good choice, I guess.

rotating faves

(Stuff excluded from "lately" lists because I'm literally always listening to these bands,
but whatever release I've been rotating in like seasonal coffee flavors.)

Danzig - It's real Lucifuge hours forever and always.
Type O Negative - Slow Deep & Hard, I've been working backwards again so I don't burn out. Can't believe how long I've been listening to this album & the fact that I am...not tired of it.
Acid Bath - Paegan Terrorism Tactics chefs kiss. Thinking about preordering the new repressing, cuz allegedly it won't sound like hot garbage this time around.
Dethklok - Doomstar Requiem OST, I've been starting work days with this and then ended up in a Deathalbum hole. They're stupid, I love them.
Mercyful Fate - Don't Break The Oath, ideal painting disassociation music IMHO.

Topsters - 2021
