What band did you discover in 2008 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

Afrontar, because they're the hardest band to come out of El Salvador in 2008.

How will you remember 2008? (In terms of music)

Metallica and Guns N Roses still got it! Just like I've still got my sarcastic wit.

Vinyl record sales saw a significant increase this year while hard copy sales continued to dwindle. Is this a return to the glory days for vinyl or just a phase? Explain.

Vinyl is currently "hip" and nothing "hip" stays "hip" very long. It's a digital world.

Doing this survey.

Records, tours, and other typical band stuff.

Morrissey "Years of Refusal," Piss Problem LP, and The Jesus Lizard's reissues.
