I don't know exactly what you mean by dirty words..? If you mean curse words, then yes nothing there is censored in any way. Anyone can sign up and upload just anything they want there.

I use a site called Music-Map. Other than that I scroll through other people's iTunes libraries or check out the recommended artists based on my library.

Yes I meant curse words and they were omitted from the song American Idiot, I was streaming it not downloading however, perhaps that makes a difference.

I usually happen upon an artist through other media I consume.  Maybe they are on a soundtrack, commercial, or TV show.  I hope that someday I'll find a forum or dedicated thread that caters to my taste in music!

I think a big part of it for me is "how do I rediscover music" than anything lol. I'm still searching for songs that have stayed stuck in my head but yet can articulate the lyrics to find the songs. Sucks actually lol. A lot of the newer stuff I add I tend to hear the songs on youtube and then acquire later acquire the music. Yet much of the stuff of today is a far cry away from the quality of yesteryear ;(.

There's plenty of hyperbole coming from each site, but I've found so much of what I listen to on either of those sites that their drama is fine by me rolleyes.gif
Mainly /mu/ here too. The drama adds to the fun. Occasionally I find something cool on what.cd too.

Loving the ideas, keep the juices flowing.  Have been checking each out and it looks like we are creating a sweet database.  Maybe when I get back in town I can edit my OP and throw together a nice looking intro with all of the existing ideas.

That would be amazing.  It is after the music that ultimately got most of us into headphones.  The more music the better beyersmile.png

Using related artists on spotify has worked really well for me, by putting the popular songs on by each artists, tis quick and easy to find stuff I like. Other than that I just get friends to recommend what they're listening to atm.

I usually peruse Songza's playlists until something catches my attention. cool.gif

 

Oh and I use the same method for watching amv's on youtube as one of my secret pastimes :)

Reading, sampling and listening to a variety of sources.

Online radio stations.  Thankfully gone are the days where I am stuck with at best a 2 hour rock show filled with ads on a saturday that then gets cancelled anyway.  Now the problem is choosing which one to listen to at a time.  Will it be heavier, more melodic, instrumental...

For me, it is by random purchases of second hand CDs, only $1 or so each, so - if they're not to my liking, no harm done - but, if I do like them, then I go hunting for the back catalogues!
