Expository Essay Essay, Research Paper
Almost everyone has a favorite band. People buy CD s and tapes
to not only listen to the music that they like, but to support that band.
There are many, many different types of music, and usually a certain band
will fit into a specific type of music. I listen mostly to alternative/grunge
music. And by coincidence the three bands I m going to talk about are all
from the west coast. I am going to talk a little bit about three of my
favorite bands in that category: Pearl Jam, Everclear, and No Doubt.
Pearl Jam is a band from Seattle. They were one of the first
alternative bands to ever become popular from this area. The lead singer
of Pearl Jam is Eddie Vedder, he does the lead vocals and plays the
guitar. The rest of the band includes, Jeff Ament, (bass) Stone Gossard,
(guitar and vocals) Jack Irons, (drums) and Mike McCready, (guitar). A
couple of the songs that Pearl Jam does are Jeremy, Daughter, Smile, Spin
the Black Circle and Tremor Christ. Pearl Jam has a knack for writing
catchy lyrics that become very popular.
Everclear is a band from Portland. They are not as popular as Pearl
Jam, but they do have a large following of fans. The three band members
of Everclear are Art Alexis, (lead vocals, and guitar) Greg Eklund, (drums
and vocals) and Craig Montoya, (bass, and vocals). Their album together
is Sparkle and Fade, and it is one of the best albums I ve ever heard.
Among the may popular songs are Heroin Girl, Sparkle and Fade, and
Santa Monica. All of the lyrics are good, but there is a lot of profanity on
No Doubt is the last band, but is not the least. No Doubt has had a
number one album, Tragic Kingdom, and it is VERY popular. This band is
out of California. The band members are: Gwen Stefani, (lead vocals) Tom
Dumont, (guitar) Tony Kanal, (bass) Adrian Young, (drums and percussion)
and Eric Stefani (piano and keyboards) Gwen, the lead singer is the only
female in this band, and hers is the only voice you hear in all of the songs.
Some of their songs includes, Just a Girl, Spider Webs, and Excuse Me
Mister. All are popular and make an awesome album with all of the songs
These bands all are popular here in the Northwest and all have
popular albums out. People have shown their support of these bands by
buying their albums and requesting their favorite songs on the radio. Pearl
Jam, Everclear, and No Doubt are among my very favorite bands, and I
own all of their albums.
