Default What music does each member of the band listen to...

...outside of Taylor and Dave's favorite bands (like Queen, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead, etc.)

I honestly don't know what the other 3 members enjoy listening to in their spare time, have they ever mentioned their favorite bands in interviews? I know Chris wore an Iron Maiden shirt in the Breakout video, is he a fan of the band?

Chris is a huge Jawbreaker fan.

I'm guessing Nate is a fan of the Talking Heads, because according to William Goldsmith in a radio interview, Nate came up with the name "Sunny Day Real Estate" from, "that one Talking Heads song off that album 'Naked,' and I don't know what his point was." I'm not sure what song William was referring to; there is a reference to "real estate" in one song, but I think it's more likely the name was inspired by the line "stealing all our dreams, dreams for sale, they sell ’em back to you," which led Nate or someone to think about people selling "sunny days."

Pat used to literally stalk Queen.

there's an interview on muchmusic intimate and interactive, from 2002 I think, where george strombo asks about their personal tastes for music and how different they are. the video used to be on youtube but I can't seem to find it anymore, just their performances from the same program.

anyways, Dave mentions Queen, Rush and The Police for Taylor, The Clash for Chris and Talking Heads for Nate, those are the ones I can remember of but I'm almost sure he mentioned a lot more and I'm not entirely sure he mentions Rush, but from other interviews we know that it's a band he surely is a huge fan of, obviously confirmed by his performance of YYZ with Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee.

it's a very ok question to ask, really. when you like a band so much, you start to want to know more about them and what they listen to and maybe locate some of those bands influence on the music your favorite band makes.

I saw a recent interview where Dave mentioned that he was really into The Joy Formidable right now, even requested that they open for the Foo's on part of their tour.
