  • Primal music

    I'm curious if there is a common thread between us primal folks and the music that we listen to.

    Now I have a pretty eclectic music collection ranging from Charlie Daniels to Slipknot. Throw in some Enya, Johnny Clegg and Roxy Music for fun.

    However I almost always have on heavy metal. 5 Finger Death Punch, Korn, Slipknot, etc. (I know, I know. I'm 54 and too old for this crap, what can I say)? This is nothing new for me. When I was a teenager the first two albums I had was Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Perhaps I never grew out of it.

    To me rock music has a primal feel to it. Nothing more primal than hard driving, loud, obnoxious music with a kick ass drummer ripping the drums apart.

    Is this just me or is this common with the PB bunch?

    I love heavy rock. AC/DC, cold chisel, Guns N Roses to name a few. I also like heavy metal in the style of Iron Maiden.

      I listen to a lot but prefer music with a distinctive beat. I love Iron Maiden, Manowar, Judas Priest etc ... I also love Queen, Muse, The Killers, U2.

      Add that to my Celtic rock and Middle Eastern music fetish and my iPod has an eclectic mix.

          All classical here - orchestral, choral, piano, opera - a wide range of taste.

            Well, metal is my least favorite type of music. I like folk, country, old rock, indie stuff, the occasional old jazz / R&B stuff.
            If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least and this (personal fave):

              Eclectic music tastes here as well, but always up for some metal (Sabbath, Slayer, early Metallica).

              But if you want to hear some good Primal music, I suggest you look no further than the Stooges, and especially their second album Fun House. It's down and dirty music at it's finest. And Iggy just reminds me of a caveman. Grunting, groaning, and rubbing peanut butter all over himself.

                I'm eclectic... my favorite genres being from the rock or metal spectrum to the country sprectrum... ... lately I've been listening to Eminem's latest album... as of yet I'm on the fence about it.... ... My radio presets in my car are hip-hop, rock, pop, country, country, country ... so based on that I'm gonna say I lean towards country but I go back and forth with what I listen too... right now I'm listening to a lot of rock and rap

                  I just watched a video the other day by Henry Rollins. Stand up comedian that used to be a lead singer for a hardcore punk band. He talks about opening for Iggy and trying to best the "old man". Funny stuff.

                    Everything. I grew up on punk/hardcore/oi..but I like everything.

                      I only like Rafi, Milli Vanilli, Wesly Willis, John McCutcheon and Tom Waits. in that order.

                        I'm an aul' folkie. Celtic folk mostly, but lots of contemporary BrEng folk as well.

                          I love everything...except country. I'm not saying that because I want to look like a hipster. I'm saying that because I can't stand country.

                          In the gym, it's all metal/hard rock. Seriously, nothing gets me jacked to f*ck sh*t up like some heavy double-bass with screaming guitar riffs on top. Slipknot, System of a Down, NIN, Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Killswitch Engage, Scars on Broadway, etc. I also throw in some Gogol Bordello and other random, high-energy music if it feels right.

                          When stretching in the gym or doing yoga, I'm incredibly partial to chill-out/new-wave.

                          When I go to concerts, it's almost always electronica/dubstep/metal but really I'll listen to anything live. It's great.

                          Any other time can include any of the above or alt rock/underground hip-hop/idm/drumming/classical/instrumental/psychedelic rock/punk/indie/folk/eastern/NOT country.

                          The most primal artist I know of (and one of my favorites EVER)? Shpongle. It's music my friends and I dance around our campfire to after the partaking of a certain herb. I saw Shpongle in concert last Cinco de Mayo and I danced my ass off for a solid 4 hours. It was amazing to my life and probably the most "primal" experience I've ever had.

                            I like all sorts of rock generally, but I'm still sort of stuck in the 90's when it comes to my very favorites (Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, any band Chris Cornell has ever been in... oh and I'm STILL pissed that Jeff Buckley died).

                            For working out, I'm a big fan of crappy pop and hip hop. If I'm sprinting especially, give me some Lady Gaga or Ke$ha or Jay Sean. I don't know why.

                              Pretty much any genre up until the end of the 80s. After that, I'm more choosy.

                              I like orchestra/jazz instruments and good vocalists, so I end up listening mostly to American Standards and that type of thing.
