So I was rear ended recently and it left me driving a rental while my car was in the shop. Perhaps needless to say I was without all of the music I had in my car. I figured it wouldn't be in the shop that long and decided to jam out on the radio. I listened to a serious amount of NPR ("Science Friday" anyone?) but I was changing stations like mad in hopes of catching a Katy Perry tune.

What is your guilty pleasure? Is it even safe to post?

I am not a theatre person by nature but really like the soundtrack to Rent. Terrific show if you missed it, no longer on Broadway.

Musically? I have a lot of guilty pleasures there,. Speaking of Katy Perry (she's one of them), she has a very nice MTV Unplugged EP. She really is a solid writer and singer even when you strip away all the expensive production. I hope she outgrows the cheesy pop image someday and makes some more "serious" music.

Oh, musically? No guilt in listening to anything I enjoy.

Life is too short to spend much of it on guilt, but I am willing to buy a blueberry pie even if I can't find anybody to help me eat it.

Vince Gill. People (my metalhead friends) give me crap for liking him but I think he's just an awesome guitar player and songwriter!

I take the same grief over Brad Paisley.

Vince Gill is a monster guitar player, an amazing songwriter, and one of the most talented singers (especially for his range) on the planet. Anyone who knocks that guy has their head firmly up their ass. And I say these things even though he's not "my dear friend".

If you've never seen Katy Perry's SXSW show from before the first album hits, it's well worth tracking down. Before the image was in place and took over. I still have this on my DVR (possibly a different performance - I got it on DirecTV), and it made the album a bit of a disappointment.

Well, here...

I have everything that Prince ever put out. And my all time favourite song might be even worse than that.

I'll stab my own face off before I willingly listen to any music on the radio here in the UK.

I however, can not get enough of Die Antwoord.

Yolandi is a babe. I dig their singles. Haven't listened to a full album. I will remedy this.

Rent was my 1st Broadway show. We did the lottery & got the $25 front row seats. KILLER show. Wicked was also amazing. Again, got to sit front row & the band pit was like a little city. BIG band!!

Vince IS 'da man. I saw Robben Ford here in Nashville at a small theater & he had Vince & Brad Paisley sit in on a few songs. Great show. If a bomb had gone off in that room, there would've been no Nashville pickers left. The entire room was filled with legendary guitar slingers.

I'm from Cape Town, knew them before they became Die Antwoord. Not a big fan of the music, but it's great to see some local people doing well overseas.

This could easily have gone into the 80's thread that Hans created, but I love this tune!

Musically, I have 2. First, I love Symphony music, especially the stuff for violin. The other one is my PRS. I dont need a guitar as good as my CU24 but now that I have it, I cant see ever getting rid of it except for maybe another PRS.

I'm mostly known for being a Classic Rock/Blues purist, but also very into RnB (Motown). I have to say my guilty pleasure is modern country (not so much the poppy stuff though). It's very much like classic rock guitar-wise... I also really dig the Nashville scene and players there. I also love to go there - my favorite vacation spot. It's where I also picked up my holy grail amp, an old 5E3 at the Platinum Room at the Guitar Center there.

A musician I like teamed up with another guy and made an 80's throwback album last year. The first time I heard it, I was practically offended (Beavis and Butthead face). It eventually grew on me. I probably listened to it 50 times last summer.

Really? Thats pretty cool! The music is definitely an acquired taste and very different from 99% of what I generally listen to. It's just the right side of catchy mixed with a healthy dose of weird!

I guess I'm not making it any better, but I have to correct myself. It wasn't "National Anthem". It was "Ride". Love the chorus. Ahem.

Despite being a metalhead, as well as a classical and jazz fan, I listen to some music from a rapper named Lil B (also known as Based God), if that counts.

OK this falls both under guilty pleasures and something that irritates me...

I love playing through Mesa Rectifiers...I don't understand why they have fallen off in popularity...other than Mesa's success...and the general tendency to reject that which has reached a certain level of accomplishment....nor do I understand why people have such a hard time dialing in good sounds...read the manual and figure out how to use the tool I say before b*tching and complaining!!!! Oh and use the tool for the purpose it was designed...these are professional grade amplifiers! If it doesn't sound right at whisper quiet volumes...well maybe it wasnt designed for that? I play in a blues rock oriented band and think they sound great! It's not like I don't have other amps at my disposal. You can play any genre of guitar oriented music through them...they have multiple modes one can use...their EQ is great if you spend time with it...Not everything played through them requires you to switch on the red channel modern mode with the gain, treble, bass, and presence knobs maxed while reducing the mid control to zero....actually I can't think of any style of music that this would sound good with these settings although they appear to be prevalent on most of the amps I see on the sales floor in big music chain stores...if you want to expand on the huge amount of sounds already found in the amp you can use an eq in the loop...eq in front...eq wherever it might suit you...you can play it boosted or unboosted...really I just don't get why others don't like them...but then again all I really care about is that I can dial mine in to sound great!!!

...ok I'm done now (at least for the time being).
