When I was writing down my favourite bands for this blogpost, I found out that I listen to a lot of bands. I wrote 20 bands down and today I will talk about my 10 favourite ones. If you want to see the other 20 bands just let me know and I will make an extra blogpost for you.
Bring Me The Horizon.
Last year I started listening to Bring Me The Horizon. I heard Drown for the first time on BBC radio 1 and I asked myself which band it was. It turned out that it was Bring Me The Horizon. After I heard Throne, Bring Me The Horizon became one of my favourite bands. I never thought that I would listen to them, but after hearing That’s The Spirit I am in love with this band. I am going to see them this summer on the dutch festival called Pinkpop.
Fall Out Boy.
The first time I heard Fall Out Boy I was at my uncles house and I saw them on MTV. The first song I heard was Thanks For The Memories. Since then Fall Out Boy is also one of my favourite bands. My favourite song is: Thanks For The Memories. I just can’t forget the monkeys and even after all these years I still love that song a lot. I haven’t seen them live yet!
Outtrigger is a Swedish band and I saw them for the first time at Melodifestivalen 2014 with their song Echo. I really wanted them to win Melodifestivalen and that they went to Eurovision, but that didn’t happen. This band and their song were not a typical Eurovision act. Echo is pretty good, but my favourite song is Last Of Us. I put a link on both of these songs, because I suggest you should listen to this band! They are really good. I haven’t seen them live yet. Another good reason to visit Sweden.
You Me At Six.
I have known You Me At Six for a while now, but in 2014 I actually started to listen to them. It was because they did a show or a tour with All Time Low. The first song I heard was Loverboy and it has been my favourite for a while. Now my favourite song is Lived A Lie. I haven’t seen this band either.
Of Mice And Men.
In 2014 I went to a Linkin Park concert in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. Of Mice And Men were the support act and I always check out the support act before the concert. I wasn’t convinced yet, but after I saw them preform I was convinced. Their performance was amazing and even my dad liked it. I don’t know which song I heard first but my favourite song is: Feels Like Forever.
Panic! At The Disco.
I listen to Panic! At The Disco since I Write Sins Not Tragedies came out and I saw them on tv. It is still an amazing song even after all these years. My favourite song now a days is House Of Memories from their new album called Death Of A Bachelor. I am going to see Panic! At The Disco in May.
I really liked The Script for a long time, but since 2 years I really started to listening to them. The first song I heard was The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. I enjoy listening to this band a lot. It gives me peace. My favourite song is The Energy Never Dies. I saw The Script live for the first time last year at Pinkpop and it was amazing!
Linkin Park is the band that has been there almost all my life. I started listening to them when I was a kid, thanks to my dad. He is a Linkin Park fan. There was a period that I didn’t listen to them, but since a few years I rediscovered them. My favourite song is In The End, but I have more favourites. I choose this song, because it is my all time favourite. I saw Linkin Park in 2014 and that concert was the best concert yet! I hope they will go on tour this year and I can see them.
I knew Bastille already, because of their song Pompeii but in early 2014 I really got into them and I still am. In June that year I had the chance to see them on a festival called Concert At Sea. Their music makes me so happy and I just get loose when I listen to them. My favourite song is Icarus. This summer I am going to see them again at Pinkpop and this makes me so happy (I also have that with the next band). When I saw they would prefrom at Pinkpop I knew I had to get tickets.
All Time Low.
And last but not least: All Time Low! Yes, I had to include them, because they are my favourite band since 2008. The first song I heard was Lost in Stereo and after hearing that song I became a fan. A big fan! It took me years to finally see them live, everytime there was a stupid reason I couldn’t go and one time I cried a lot when I couldn’t go and my parents wouldn’t let me go alone. But then june arrived and I went to Jera On Air to see them live for the first. I was really nervous for this concert, because I had a feeling that it would go wrong again. But it didn’t and I was so happy that night, because I saw my favourite band live after all these years. I can’t describe how I felt that evening, I was happy, but I felt so much more. And this year I am going to see them again! In june at Pinkpop and I can’t wait to see them again. I love them so much and My favourite song for now is (it changes a lot): Something’s Gotta Give.
