What band did you grow up listening to with?

What band did you grow up listening to ever since you were a little kid? Bands you started listening to as a little kid and you still love them today.

My pick would have to be U2. U2 was a band that got me into music. I was about 9 or 10 years old when I first heard U2, as soon as my father started playing their albums on vinyls, I've been hooked to U2 ever since. I've collected all of their albums on CD and I still have them too.

"October", "The Joshua Tree", and "The Unforgettable Fire" were their three best albums they did in their entire career IMO.

Mostly Motown and 60's/70's R&B with some Rock mixed in here and there. No one band in particular.

As a kid-before high school- the Beach Boys-came back to them after many years off

I'm not proud but: Other kid bands were DeFranco Family, Barry Manilow, Carpenters, KC and the Sunshine Band, Jim Croce, CW McCall, lots of 45 rpm singles, disco.

Then in Junior High I forgot all of them and got into new wave/punk.

No one band in particular, but Dad was a hippie and dug all of the classic rock coming out of Woodstock and that era so I always heard them as a young boy. Still dig most of it today.

Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were big ones for me. Ten was my first CD. I grew up listening to a lot of what my parents listened to as well, like Grateful Dead, Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, etc. Actually they listened to a lot of different kinds of music, but that's all I really remember hearing.

The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater, The Doors, etc. This is music that my dad loved and so I heard it a lot, and in turn, love it myself. I didn't get into really discovering music for myself until my late teens, but this is the kind of stuff I grew up on...and I can't imagine anything better.

The very first band I got into was Guns and Roses, this was in the late 80's. I was about 8 or 9 years old and I was totally obsessed with them, they were the best band ever as far as I was concerned back then.

My taste in music changed a lot since then. From 90-94 I got into bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Macine, STP, Primus, Nine Inch Nails and Alice in Chains.

Then from 95-96 I kinda got into hip hop. I was listening to Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac, Bone Thugs and Harmony, etc.

From 96 until now I listen to Tool, Pink Floyd, QOTSA, Audioslave, System of a Down, etc.

I rarely listen to GNR now, only Appetite for Destruction ocasionally.

I grew up listening to what the parents did Neal Diamond, Barbara Streisand, & Lionel Richie. I appreciate them all, but do not own any of them myself.

The things I listened to when I was young was pop. And I'm glad I eradicated that genre in my life in high school(early 90's) for classic and new rock.

The whole "Grunge" era. Though I really do hate that term. Especially nowadays with Pearl Jam and STP being the only bands left, and them not sounding anything like Grunge. I never even considered STP grunge anyway.

Weird Al was the only musician whose music I collected growing up, starting around 1984. I didn't pick up an album by another artist for a little over a decade, I believe, when They Might Be Giants left music consuming my life.

Wow, I feel really old right now.

The first band I really liked was the Cars back when they were actually together.
