Coheed and Cambria

Not sure how many songs, but I have all 5 of their albums, including demos and such.

I love them because no matter what mood I'm, and how many times I've listened to them, they never got old. I'll be 90 puttering around in a nursing home blasting Welcome Home, and smacking people with my cane when they try to turn it down.

It's impossible to narrow it down to just one. The best I can do is top five, in no particular order:
  • Harry Chapin
  • The Beatles
  • Billy Joel
  • The Eagles
  • The Beach Boys
I have the majority of each of their catalogs, I'm most lacking in the Billy Joel and Beach Boys departments, but eventually I'll get around to it.

But that leaves off so many others that I truly enjoy as well - so hard to decide!

Beatles :D

Every album and most of their solo works as well. Well except Menlove Avenue by John Lennon, right pain as I live on that road.

Seriously though....
1) how do you determine there are exactly 422? I downloaded the discography last month and i got 152 files.
2) why didn't you download the other 80 tracks... Isn't it all one torrent, somewhere?


Im just going to assume that having the discography means 100%:
Tool- 100%
In Flames- 100%
System of a Down- 100%
Alexisonfire- 100%

Mark Snow. I'm still working on getting everything that was officially released. The big one I'm waiting on is the 4-disc X-Files collector set. I've got the Millennium set, and loads of rips from the show. I've got about half of his other work.

I particularly like They Might Be Giants. I think I only have around 52 of their songs, though.

Oingo Boingo is pretty awesome as well.

Yeah fair enough... but my point is more like... when is a song not a song... when is it two songs? Do live versions count as different songs? What if he released it on an official live cd? What if he recorded a song in the studio but it was never released but it was leaked on the internet as an MP3 5 years later? My eminem discography has 152 songs. I have most of the studio albums. So what about the other 300 songs? There must be tons of 'underground' stuff included in that number, so then HOW can you ever know there are exactly 442 song?? Can you link the original source? Im sort of curious.

Thay arent my favorite band but I liked them enough to buy the Neverender collection with the live cd's and dvds and stuff. I didnt care much for No World For Tomorrow at all; it was ok but considering its storyline (which got incredibly hard to comprehend after In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3) and subject matter it should have been way more violent. I haven't had a chance to check out the prequel ablum yet either.
