All About The Music has posted a new blog featuring musicians describing the "guilty pleasure" bands they like outside of metal. Excerpts from the blog follow:

Dave Davidson (Revocation) – “One of my guiltiest pleasures would probably be Fall Out Boy. Not really a fan of their older stuff but the last couple of records they've put out were awesome. Phil's guilty pleasure is probably Boys 2 Men, he will straight up sing that CD from front to back when he’s drunk and it always brings the laughs. Anthony is also into a lot of pop, right now I think he's on a Lady Gaga kick.”

Micah Kinard (Oh, Sleeper/Violent Lighting/Steadfast Modesty Clothing) – “My guilty pleasure band is Flickerstick. Haha, though that is not necessarily the most random thing you will find on my iPod. I also LOVE Fiona Apple and Sarah McLachlan, but I rep them proudly. haha.”

Gabriel Luis (Fallen Martyr) – “Muse and Radiohead. 2 amazing bands. What I like about them the most is that they are progressive music; they do and sound how they want. And that’s a pretty metal thing to do. Also, Radiohead is pretty strange. Strange bands are always awesome. 3 6 Mafia and Project Pat. I like rap, and sometimes I gotta listen to something else other then metal. I also find that it’s better to write new material when listening to music that is very unlike the style you play. You can pick up inspiration from anything if you really just have an open mind.”

I can't see at all why ANYONE would consider Muse or Radiohead a guilty pleasure. It's not like they're flavor of the month label-produced pop. Silly metalheads...

I was thinking of some embarrasing revelations that makes us wonder if we can keep on coming back here...
Shall I start?
I occasionally listen to Simple Minds, The Cure, Depeche Mode... AND even INXS. Yep, love their "Live baby live" album.
Not bad enough? Here it comes: I like Brian Adams´ Best Of album "So far so good". And Sade´s "Love deluxe" is a wonderful album too.

DB will probably cancel my MU membership now ... ;)

That's awesome!

Just gotta put in that The Cure are great. As for my 'guilty pleasures' I gotta few of em, but I actually have one song that that I would like to share at this moment, and that is "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes.

I don't really like it when people call something a "guilty pleasure". Why should anyone be ashamed or afraid to like something? F*** other people and what they think. I gladly talk about the music I listen to. Some of my non-metal favs are Adam and the Ants, Beatles, Who,Duran Duran, 70's and 80's pop, old school rap,Insane Clown Posse, disco,Celtic, Josh Groban, Charlotte Church, Yoko Ono, Bjork, Tori Amos, Peter Gabriel, Gordon Lightfoot and 60's Motown.

That´s a fair point, stylegurrl. Agreed.
Besides, around here you´ll most likely get more sh1t for liking Linkin Park or Limp Bizkit than Shania Twain or Britney

i have no guilty pleasures kuz i'm not ashamed to say that i like something just kuz it's not what everybody else likes and since everybody else here is mentioning non-metal bands than i will continue the trend... i love bloc party, muse, nin, beck, the prodigy, duncan sheik, james blunt, depeche mode, the afters, the fray, onerepublic, rise against, ashes divide, a perfect circle, rage against the machine and all of the members' other bands like street sweeper social club and audioslave (i know, they broke up), the subways, and lostprophets r just some to name, but then again, if u read all the genres that i'm into on my profile, u'll get the picture more or less.
