Music Lessons: Top 5 Desert Island Rock

I just finished re-reading High Fidelity, so Michael and I have been discussing our Top 5 Desert Island Rock Bands.

(in no particular order)

  1. REM
  2. Sunny Day Real Estate
  3. Hum
  4. Jimmy Eat World
  5. Jawbox

(in no particular order)

  1. Jimmy Eat World
  2. Eisley
  3. Death Cab for Cutie
  4. Stars
  5. Skipping Mad
Skipping Mad was Michael's band in college (when we met). I had to include them on my list because (a) they really were an awesome band and I still listen to their songs all the time, (b) the fact that Michael was in a band was pretty influential on my interest in him, and (c) if I were trapped on a desert island, it would be nice to have Michael there with me.

What are your Top 5 Desert Island Rock Bands?


  1. What are we defining as a band? This is what it would probably be for me right now. Even though these aren't all bands.

    1. Cake
    2. Iron and Wine
    3. James taylor (he plays with a band, does that make him one?)
    4. Bob Marley and the wailers
    5. Justin timberlake (with a band) know what I'm talkin bout, Kellie!

  2. Here's my strictly bands list:

    1. Cake
    2. Bob marley etc.
    3. Flogging molly
    4. Mumford and sons
    5. Crosby, stills, nash and young

  3. Go Lake Lake!!
    (no particular order)
    1. Sheryl Crow
    2. Snow Patrol
    3. Ingrid Michaelson
    4. Dashboard Confessional
    5. The Civil Wars

    But I could be okay with a mixture of Erin's and Josh's list too (like Jimmy Eat World, Stars, CSNY, James Taylor)

  4. @Kellie - I had to divide up my music into multiple categories, so Ingrid Michaelson is on my Top 5 singer/songwriters list. Have you gotten Snow Patrol's new album?

    1. I don't have any money to buy new music, so no. I think I should make a singer/songwriter list as well. That would leave open a couple spots for my band list huh?!
