When I owned a Sega Dreamcast I would play Sonic 2 all the time, I have since played the game on a Sonic Collection disc for Gamecube. The game itself is pretty fun, I personally find it the best of the original trilogy of the Sonic games.

Um... I recommended laying off the gaming and internet if it's consuming your life. But I have to ask you if you actually got around to starting the novel. The story never writes itself, you may think that you have the greatest concept of all time but it's only a though bubble in your head waiting to be popped.

Eh, I never listened to Rory Gallagher because by the time I learned about him I was already disinterested in blues rock. He was talented it's just that I was more into alternative and experimental music at that point.

I like Liam Gallagher's snarl but I find he mostly doesn't care how he sings. Noel Gallagher, I think is the better of the two, not to mention he's the one responsible for the songs. Even though I don't like Oasis, when comparing them to Blur at the time of the Battle of Britpop, Blur wrote really good pop songs, Oasis wrote anthems. However, most of the anthems are for countries I don't like and ideologies I don't subscribe to. Wonderwall gets worse every time I listen to it, whenever the "And maybbeee..." part comes on I just have to switch songs immediately, bad songwriting and lackluster production.

My life is over...
In all seriousness though, my favorite bands are the alternative rock bands of the '00s. Kings of Leon, The Cranberries, Kasabian, Placebo, The Killers, Gorillaz, Blur, Fall Out Boy, Daughtry, Empire of the Sun, Liquido, Muse and Snow Patrol are a handful of them. I also do appreciate '80s pop and rock a lot, bands like Nirvana, Europe, Eurythmics, Sex Pistols, The Police and artists like Bonnie Tyler and Kate Bush are all amazing examples of that music era. More recent favorites include The Neighbourhood, M83, Cage The Elephant, Capital Cities and Two Door Cinema Club.
Some choice stuff in their. I do appreciate the Blur love there, personally I like them better than Oasis and that's really because I think Oasis had an annoying personality and ugly walls of sound. I like some Oasis songs but Blur has been more progressive and has had a way better production quality, not to mention Graham Coxon is a wayyy better guitarist than Noel Gallagher.
Also, screw the class argument that gets thrown in when those two bands get compared, they all became rich in the end.
Wait... please tell me that "#cutforzayn" doesn't mean actually cutting yourself just for a singer in One Direction? That must be what it means. Of course. Of course, why wouldn't it mean that. It's the Internet of course there is another stupid trend. This time it's dangerous. YAY!
Seriously though don't cut for Zayn. I'm not trying to insult anyone who likes One Direction, but I can tell you that he is definitely not worth CUTTING FOR.
Eh... I heard stories that a bunch of teenagers failed highschool because of Kurt Cobain's suicide. Britpop documentaries always go over their rejection of grunge and the death of Cobain is often a highlight, though it's exaggerated they will often insert clips of Kurt Cobain mourning, it's practically comical (I know it's not funny but I'm sure Kurt hated the fact that he's seen as a god).
Yes, a band member leaving or dying is sad but never let that affect your life severely unless you knew the guy personally.

I know a lot of people aren't fans of them and I think there are very good reasons not to like Radiohead. The amount of accolades Kid A (their fourth album) got, which includes #1 album of the 2000's, makes people suspicious of the band. I do like that Radiohead is an obtuse band, I like using them as reference point for labeling bands as "alternative rock" (though I rarely use that label since the definition is wayyyy too broad.)

I honestly prefer Origin of Symmetry, that being said I tend to dislike whenever Muse's sound gets gody or campy. Overall when it comes to British alternative I have to say Radiohead is the better band. It doesn't help that Muse's recent outputs are complete trainwrecks.
If we are going strictly by bands then: (in particular order, this list is not absolute as my tastes often shift)

Never have a constant favourite anything when it comes to music anymore.
But currently, some hot voices that comes to mind are:
Sharon Van Etten -haunting, beautiful
Thom Yorke -sets a painful atmosphere
Kendrick Lamar -dope but responsible
Pat the Bunny -Kurt Cobain of folk-punk, except less stomach, more nasal, still cool
Jon Anderson -dope, very curly harmonies
St.Vincent -scary, esoteric, ethereal, down to Earth

Eh... I don't really know how accurate or applicable these music related studies are. Sure I beat the crap out of the imaginary people when I listen to metal and that can be therapeutic but I find any genre can relieve stress.
Thank you for this very important post.
