What were you favourite bands when you were a kid or a teenager? What do you think that says about you and your community?

The TEDsters were born in different eras, different places all over the world.

What music you chose, why you do it and what that expresses says a lot about the person, the times, the moral paradigm and political landscape.

Music has always been an integral part of my life. I've been a goth, an emo, a rock-girl, a punk and more, both listening and making music, depending on the period. Some bands that have influenced me are still a good reference, some of them are just a sentimental insight.

Back to the question - what music did you chose when you were young and what do you think it says about the times, the community you grew up in and you yourself, as a person?

In other words - some like Iron Maiden, some like U2, some like other bands, some like everything, some do not. Why do you think that is?
