Song/Artist that has influenced/made an impact on you

in General Discussion edited January 2014
just wondering if anyone has had any song or an artist make an impact on your life. for me it would have to be:

black sabbath - war pigs

sex pistols - nevermind the bollocks

and probably bob marley - legend

    The band Guster has quite a few songs that have influenced me. Happier and So Long from their album entitled Lost and Gone Forever are two songs that have really helped me get out of a deep rut. In the past few weeks though, When You Were Young by The Killers has been very very influential. That's from their new album Sam's Town.

    Haha, I'm in my junior year of high school and I listen to Right Now when I'm doing a project I really hate.
