Adam's Playlist

Canadian rockers Three Days Grace are back with a new album. Before they hit the road to take the states by storm again, ARTISTdirect snagged some time with frontman Adam Gontier, and he told us all about his favorite songs...

1. Ben Harper - "Lonely Day"
The "Live From Mars" version of this song is awesome. Ben Harper's got one of the most unique voices in music.

2. Slow Nerve Action – "Astroglide"
This is my cousin's band from Vancouver. Porno-funk....great music. Sort of "Chilis" meets Zappa.

3. Phil Collins - "I Don’t Care Anymore"
This was my biggest "F**k You" song when I was in high school.

4. Tragically Hip - "Yawning or Snarling"
Gord Downie tells a truly incredible story in this song... if you don't know this band, do yourself a favor, and check it out.

5. Pearl Jam - "Jeremy"
This is probably my number one favorite song of all time. Incredible... that's all I can say.

6. Tool – "Sober"
This song gets me going. Great one to warm up to before a show.

7. Soundgarden – "Rusty Cage"
Another warm up before I get on stage... heavy!

8. Jimi Hendrix - "Crosstown Traffic"
My cousin Josh got me into Hendrix. He's a genius. This song is a great driving tune.

9. The Doors - "The End"
This song always freaked me out when I was younger... but in a good way. I fell in love with the Doors pretty early on in my life.

10. Jeff Buckley - "The Sky is a Landfill"
Another killer track from a much missed musical genius!

11. The Police - "Roxanne"
Ever played the drinking game to this tune? Drink every time you hear "Roxanne"... You'll be blitzed by the bridge!
