Alllllllrighty. So my favourite band is The Flying Burrito Brothers. Like most new bands that you listen to, I started listening to their music in chronological order. Their first album, 'The Gilded Palace of Sin', features a song called 'Dark End of the Street'. Prior to listening to it, I'd heard versions by the likes of Linda Ronstadt (God bless you, Linda) and Percy Sledge (no idea who he is, I just saw his version in the suggestions for Linda's) but the Burritos just brought it to a whole new level. Then I listened to the whole album again and it was just magic.

Touche Amore - Just Exist, one of my favourite songs still
Title Fight - Crescent Shaped Depression, again, one of my favourites :P
Joey Bada$$ - Paper Trail$

The Wonder Years - Coffee Eyes

Good thread idea :)

Led Zeppelin - Good Times Bad Times
Soundgarden - Outshined
Twenty One Pilots - Ride
Alice in Chains - Man in the Box
One Republic: Love Runs Out (when they performed it live on The Voice, that was the first time I'd ever heard them)
Stone Temple Pilots - Creep

Those were the first songs I heard by those bands. Now after listening to full albums they aren't all necessarily my favorite songs by them, although they're still near the top.

My favorite band is Avenged Sevenfold, and the song that got me into them was Beast And The Harlot. My neighbor was playing it while I was up visiting one day when I was younger. I immediately fell in love and I've been a loyal fan ever since.
