Grand Junction’s ‘Desert Island’ Artists
Although it is an unlikely scenario, it's fun to think about desert island scenarios. For example, if you were stuck on a desert island and could only listen to one band or artist for the rest of your life, who would it be?
I asked this particular question on Facebook and got some great responses.
A few people chose classic artists such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, and Tom Petty. These would all be good choices for reasons such as their extensive catalogs, familiar music, and timelessness.
A few people chose 'desert island' artists on the more modern rock side such as Tool, Pearl Jam, Staind, and KoRn. Like the classic artist, all of these bands have pretty extensive catalogs full of timeless and familiar music.
A few of the people who responded went a little heavier than the rest and chose metal bands to be their constant soundtracks on their desert islands. Some of these bands include Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slipknot, and Black Label Society.
It's always fun to respond to questions like this one with lighthearted and funny answers to poke fun. Some of the funnier responses included things like LeAnn Rimes (most likely in a joking manner, but apologies for assuming so if not,) as well as one listener not choosing an artist per se but instead insisting that it not be Steve Miller Band.
However, the best and most funny response to the question came from Brian who opted to listen to the popular yet annoying song from YouTube known as 'Baby Shark.'
