*I realize this is highly personal and my tastes lean more melodic than speed metal. Also some bands I just couldn’t put on even though I love them (like The Jam, Television, The Reziillos) because they lean too far in some way. Others are on, just because I cut my teeth on them. I am ready to be cross-examined if it pleases the punk court.
