Original songwriting, creative (and good) vocals and instrumentation. Just really good music as far as I'm concerned. But then, it's all a matter of taste. I mean hell, I still say ACDC, Guns n' Roses, Metallica, and a number of other cult-follwed bands sound like ass.

Currently rocking out to some Flogging Molly.

OK...thanks for that. I will agree with the original songwriting. Her voice to me is like nails on a chalkboard, but, I don't like Billie Holliday's voice, either. I mean Lady Day could read a lyric, but her voice was thin and reedy. On the other hand, I'm a big fan of Tom Waits who sounds like he's been drinking sterno and ground glass. I like Waits for his original (friggin' brilliant) songwriting and creative (friggin' brilliant) instrumentation.

As for Guns N Roses, they cut a couple of catchy tracks. Slash is a talented hack. Axl is a screeching poser. And any band that would record a tune by Charles Manson is beneath contempt.

AC/DC does sound like ass.

Metallica is a bunch of asses.

I've always wanted to see a double bill of Bjork and Beck, but that's just me.

never ended yesterday, so Hüsker Dü ushered in the morning, appropriately so with New Day Rising
If you don't have this and like Hüsker Dü, get it now. This was the album that opened the door to new music for me back in 85.

I've listened to the new Wilco CD and it drives me nuts because I cant get the songs out of my head for some reason. So I've just dusted of some MC5 and Violent Femmes cd's to try and blast it out.
