Hello, this is based off of untitled entity's creative idea, so thanks to her.

Rules: Post 5 videos per round of songs. (Music videos and live performances)

I'll start out. (I like Muse a lot, if you can't tell...)

I thank my opponent for starting this debate, and look forward to an interesting debate.
I'm going to break down each round and submit videos by genre. For this round, I will submit videos of the Ska genre, this is not one of my favorite genres, but it is still pretty fun.

I don't really like live videos because I can't really hear the music over applause, so, I will try and post videos with the music tracks, or the music videos.

The first video I chose is "Look What Happened" by Less Than Jake. This song was in the band's fourth album, "Borders and Boundaries".

The second is "Good Thing" by Reel Big Fish.

Third, "Here We Go Again" by Operation Ivy

Fourth, "Cheat To Win" by Slapstick

Finally, "Someday I Suppose" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

In response to my opponent's apparent like for ska, I thought I'd respond in kind with some real OLD SCHOOl ska (the Specials) and some really old school Beastie Boys (not a ska song)

Ska is just one the genres I listen to...
This round I'll focus on five indie bands.

The Cliks, a Toronto based Indie alt - rock band.

Motion City Soundtrack - a Minnesota indie rock, pop rock band.

MGMT which a duo of two guys from Brooklyn, New York who are more of synthpop, indiesynth band.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, a trio of musicians from New York City who specialize in indie rock and art punk.

Finally, the last band I chose is Ludo, a indie rock band from St. Louis.

I've decided to abandon the genre rounds and just post videos.

1st video features two overly bleached haired males rocking out to one of the best commercial songs ever.

Hendrix. Duh.

3121 by Prince (one of my more favorite artists)

"Refugee" - Melissa Etheridge (I'm gay, it was bound to happen)

My personal, favorite song...ever.

Are you actually listening to the videos I post?

Yes I am listening to the songs you post, I particularly liked some of the indie and ska ones... I haven't been posting in genres I have just been going through my library and taking good songs, some recently added some not so recently added... As well, sorry about the embedding disabled by request in some of the videos, just click on them to view them in youtube...

Seriously? Big Reel Fish sounds like Christian Rock!

And that is your opinion, this is not all I listen to. If you'd like a list, I'll message it to you.
Have you ever listened to Discordance Axis or Palatka? I notice you have legit metal listed under your music. Inform me of what "legit" metal means to you.
