As my free time dwindles I no longer have the time to watch hours of MTV or listen to the radio all day, so I need other methods of finding new music. Also the music recommendation services chewed on all of my music preferences and recommended the same two bands my friends recommended to me years ago. Now that I have those two bands and am now burned out on My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus Lizard, I need a new method.
I found that method thanks to Guitar Hero and Rock Band. I prefer listening to music while playing a bass, keys, guitar or drums, so I just found all the songs on the Guitar Hero playlist and Rock Band playlist and play to those.
