What is your favourite band and why? Torin Didenko, 16 Usher! His music touches almost everyone. The R&B music scene is a hard one to survive in and he has done a great job. Also his dance styles and music are similar to a young Michel Jackson but with a new urban touch. Mabel Lau I love Tatu. Their songs, like All the Things She Said, are great. Their voices are so strong that they can make everyone feel excited. Besides, they're the bravest singers I've ever seen. They have kissed each other on MTV and at concerts. Sunny Fung, 15 I love Beyond very much. It is a popular band in Hong Kong because of their meaningful songs and beautiful melodies. They often express their feelings about what is going on in their lives. Showing their feelings is what attracts me most about this band. Oliver Blanch, 15 My favourite band is definitely Less Than Jake. These guys play more sort of alternative or ska music. The trombone, sax and fantastic bass guitar are simply too catchy for me to resist. If you want a taste, try downloading Gainesville Rock City, possibly their best single ever. Lawrence Wan, 18 X Japan is a super Japanese band. When I first heard them half a year ago, I knew I had started my journey of learning how to really enjoy music. I have never really been excited about a band until I heard of these five guys. Stephanie Mills, 15 I've always been a fan of Nickelback. Their new album, The Long Road, is great. They've managed to maintain the same style of music. The music offers a different sound from the local emo band scene and it's more mellow sounding compared to heavy rock. Samantha Leung, 14 Pennywise is by far my favourite band. They're a punk band from America. I like them because I'm into individuality and I really admire their attitude towards life. They guys have their own style and their music reflects what goes on in today's world. Winne Chan, 19 Linkin Park. Whenever I turn on my stereo, I'm surprised to find someone is actually singing aloud my feelings and thoughts! Their lyrics are echos of my heart. In frustration, isn't it wonderful that there are people feeling the same as you? Mandy Choy, 19 My favourite act is a Brilliant local band whose songs are full of Encouraging lyrics and fantastic melodies. Youthful members of the band have an Original music production with New combinations of musical styles. Their Devotion to music impresses me. It's BEYOND! David Joughin, 15 My favourite band is the US punk/emo band Finch. There are a numbers of reasons I like their music, primarily because they have great lyrics, vocals and music. Their songs are full of raw emotion, their rifts are masterful, and the lyrics are awesome. In short, Finch rock.
