    Emery. Every song is emotionally charged.

    God, what a hard question...I guess it depends what mood I'm in.  For instance, MC5's "Kick Out the Jams" can make me want to destroy whole cities (or at least my room) while Patti Smith's "Horses" puts me in a more cool, reflective state of mind.  And Mogwai's a real string-puller, that's for sure.  I can't really listen to an entire album of theirs continuously because of that.  Too much drama at once.

    For that chills up the spine, muscles tensing in all the rights places feeling:  Pain of Salvation.  Band leader Daniel Gildenlow is (was, anyway) one of the few vocalists that consistently evokes such a reaction from me.  The 6 minute mark of King of Loss from The Perfect Element is a particular highlight.

    Though an entire session of it bores me to near-narcoleptic levels, Agalloch's The Mantle occasionally transports me to some mythical arctic woodland.  The A Celebration for the Death of Man / In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion suite is loneliness incarnate. 

    Even though I generally despise the genre, country music has its moments for toying with my emotions.  Lyrically, anyhow.

    P.S. I don't know why HubPages created a hyperlink out of country music.  *shrug*

    I can't pick a specific band but a lot of country music really gets me. Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson both really hit home. And He's Mine by Rodney Atkins. I hope my first child is a boy because no matter what he does I'll be proud to say "he's mine."

    I would have to say three days grace and drowning pool...both have been playing in very traumatic times of my life.. the song gone forever by three days grace reminds me of my grandfather and has ever since I've heard it and 37 stitches is also very emotionally impacting on me.  classical music gives me a calming feeling though.  but in the aspect of having an effect it would have to be the two bands that I said before.

    The Who, Townshend's writing and Daltry's singing make for a powerful moving combination.

    It is hard to narrow it down to just one. So I will narrow it down to three: Radiohead, PJ Harvey, and Tori Amos.

      Actually, I was asking for bands - as in multiple! I know it'd be difficult for me to narrow! Thank you for your reply. smile

    artists vs bands,..

    waylon jennings still hits me where i live,...

    kurt cobain and nirvana still stop my in my tracks,...

    joe lee hooker,.. well hell, he's joe lee hooker, if i have to explain that then i'm wasting my time.

    kirs kristofferson

    but then there is lemmy w/ motorhead,... five finger deathpunch,... volbeat,...

    i'm a little scattered when it comes to what i listen to,... and it has ALL effected me.

    The Beatles. Unexplainable though, but their music just hits the right spot every time.

      I can understand this choice for certain!

    You know, I would have to say Switchfoot. I have a lot of memories tied up with this band, especially from high school. I saw them in concert with Relient K and Ruth and it was incredible! They're Christian rock, but not explicitly like Kutless is. Switchfoot is a little more muted about it, but the lyrics are deep and emotional, at least for me. The songs 'We Are One Tonight' and 'Stars' hit me the hardest.

      I saw Switchfoot, Jars of Clay, Skillet and a few others at a music fest weekend a few years back. smile

    The Beatles. There are some other ones that are right up there but when pressed to make a decision it's the Beatles.

    Parlotones, probably the best band in South Africa. Most moving song: I'll Be There.
