Thursday Thirteen

The other day I was trying to think of a particular rock band. It started with the letter D and I mentally ticked off several others before thinking of the name Depeche Mode.

Amused, I decided that the groups on my iPod starting with that letter would be my Thursday Thirteen list. Of course, I will start with the fellows that inspired it. The irony is that I depleted my resource by the time I got to thirteen. Anyway, here they are in no particular order.

1. Depeche Mode
2. Dir en grey
3. Deathklock
4. Disturbed
5. Dire Straights
6. Def Leppard
7. Dimmu Borgir
8. The Doors
9. Devo
10. Dio
11. The Drifters
12. Duff McKeegan’s Loaded
13. The Dixie Cups


  1. A fun idea for a list. Happy T13!

  2. I love, love, love Disturbed and Def Leppard!! :) Happy Thursday!

  3. Thanks for the kind words! :) This whole list represents more hours of play than I know offhand.

  4. Duran Duran

    And I have about 2/3 of the ones on your list.

  5. I am so bad with names. I only recognized a few of those, although I probably would recognize their music.

    My T13: The Best Beans

  6. I have Depeche Mode and Devo on mine, too! LOL!


    My TT is at

  7. My son is a big fan of DethKlok. He keeps trying to drag me in, but so far I've resisted.

  8. Oh man! There's some bands I don't know on there. I'm going to have to check them out.
    I love finding new music.
    This is a great idea for a list.

  9. Wow, a lot of good bands' names start with D. Happy TT!

  10. I'm with Elise, looking for the Duran Duran!
    Great list & Def Leppard is still one of my favs.

  11. Awesome idea. I don't know if I should be perturbed at Devo or super excited about Deathklok

  12. What, no Dave matthews band, no Duran Duran? LOL...interesting idea for a T13 list.

  13. I only recognize six down to thirteen. Man, you made me feel old.

    Happy TT.

  14. What a great list! I'm not sure if there are 16 musicians starting with any letter of the alphabet in my library. M, maybe.

    It really is too bad Dave Matthews isn't on your list. Love Def Leppard, though.

  15. Cool idea for T-13, especially since your name begins with a D, too! I only recognize a few of the music groups. Fun post. I love music.

  16. I really appreciate the fun comments! And I've realized that my iTunes list is messed up if my "Best of Duran Duran" isn't on there. Hmmm... Where could those boys be hiding? Technically, their music is more prolific in my collection than Devo or The Dixie Cups, which have one song each from compilations. Then there's Devendra Banhart, a quirky musician, but he'd technically go under B. Thanks for the kind words!
