I'm just gonna list music I like until I get bored:
The Gaslight Anthem, Thriving Ivory, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Omnia, Within Temptation, CocoRosie, 3 Doors Down, Against Me!, The Airborne Toxic Event, Carolina Liar, The Rocket Summer, Safetysuit, Anberlin, The All-American Rejects, Augustana, Boyce Avenue, U2, Train, The Summer Obsession, The Spill Canvas
And I most recently I've rather enjoyed Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild.
