As an avid music fanatic, I have to ask, what are some of what you consider to be the manliest albums you own or listen to? Or your top manliest artists if that would be easier.

I'll post mine after pondering over it some.

Pantera. A Vulgar Display of Power

Good question.  Alot of the music I like is preferred because it's juvenile and therefore, probably not manly by my own definition of manly.  AC/DC, GnR, and the big hair bands of the 80's, i listen to these because they remind me of a simpler time in my life and also remind me to not take life too seriously. 

But I also like the blues, some jazz, and the old crooners like Dean Martin, which is some very manly stuff. 

I recently discovered a blues rock band called 4 on the Floor.  Very manly indeed. 

I would say Hank Williams, Sr. Or perhaps Delta blues. Pretty much anything more organic.

Anything by Sabaton. They're a Swedish metal band that sings about history. Their subjects include D-Day, the siege of Stalingrad, the Somme, the 101st at Bastogne, Vietnam, the battle of Winza, The Thirty Years War, among many others. 

I'm kind of shocked that no one has mentioned ZZ Top yet. To hell with Duck Dynasty; ZZ top made beards cool, and they're still rocking! In addition, i would have to add Frank Sinatra (the original lady's man), The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Against Me! (Very intellectual, bare-bones punk).

Search AoM for previous threads on this.  It's a common topic.

But I have a new answer.  Dire Straits; and Robert Palmer.  It really seems to be a man's perspective.

Might put the Spin Doctors in there too.

I second Dire Straits, I love 'brother in arms'.

Anything by Muddy Waters.  Some of the manliest lyrics in existence.  Completely nonsensical, but totally manly.

I've got an axe-handle face

On a graveyard frame

Shootin' tombstone bullets

Wearin' ball-n-chain

Drinkin' TNT

Smokin' dynomite

I hope some screwball try and start a fight

Cause I'm ready

Ready's any body can be

Ready for you

Hope you ready for me

Disturbed and Flaw are personal favorites

I love music of all kinds so it'd be hard to pick one over another, especially when crossing genres. I will say this, Jerry Garcia is one of the best guitarists I've heard. Unfortunately Jerry Garcia is one of the worst guitarists I've heard but man, when he was on? Wow!

I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it. I'd like to lose about 20 more pounds if at all possible. I stopped eating as much. I took up cooking. As a 23-year-old bachelor, I can attest that those of my species don't eat the greatest. I set out to break that stereotype. I eat well, but I control what I put in the tank, so to speak. Being creative in my kitchen…See More

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
