I find myself researching tons when it comes to music history, namely modern music. I'm very interested in punk rock and all the sub-genres that evolved from it. Don't mess with me on Trivial Pursuit, but feel free to challenge me when re-runs of Rock 'n Roll Jeopardy ever come back on.
Onto the music: I'm very fond of powerpop and punk rock. I guess that's fairly obvious. The Descendents, Screeching Weasel, the Briefs, the Buzzcocks, FM Knives, the Exploding Hearts, the Ramones, the Beatles, the Adolescents, the Vibrators, the Explosion, the Epoxies, Judas Priest, the Minds, Johnny Cash, the Faint, old U2, Minor Threat, the Mr. T Experience, the Queers, the Rocket from the Crypt, the Hives, the Jam, yadda yadda yadda.
