    I first saw them as a support band in 1988 at Brixton Academy in London. I was in the front row and I didn't know who they were until I asked someone behind me afterwards. They were unbelievable. I saw them again 4 times after that.

    Can not be arsed with life no more.
  • Great band, Rituol De Lo Habitual is a superb album, lots of epic songs right there.

    Ocean size could be my favorite song ever. That guitar solo just kicks you in the gut!
    The less you know, the more you believe.
  • Just saw Jane's Addiction in Vegas at the Brooklyn Bowl (the Thursday show).

    They did Nothing's Shocking in its entirety. Loved it. Navarro killed it- absolutely killed it.

    Brooklyn Bowl is a truly amazing venue.

    I love Janes Addiction live! Their studio albums are good, but I really think they are meant to be seen live. I just wish their sets were longer and they drew more from Strays, but they are amazing live. Incredible show. Navarro, and Perkins are amazing musicians and Jane's just blends so well together live with Perry's vocals and he is a great frontman. I feel so blessed to have seen Perry come out and sing "mountain song" with pearl jam at ACL that was beyond awesome.

    Probably the most pioneering band in my collection. Awesome!
    Happy up here in my tree

    Yup. Loved it.

    Still think back to it and crank up the album a ton. It's in the regular rotation with no signs of decline.

  • Just put it on right now- headphones w a bud light w lime!

    Hamstrings are cramping like a sob: a massive ride today up one of the local mountains. I thought I was in shape. I'm not. I actually got cranky as we neared the top. I needed a snickers.

  • In my mind, I always think of them as 'the mighty' Janes Addiction, beacause they always seemed so much larger than life. The music & lyrics were so unbelievable. They'll always be one of my top ten bands.

  • Pearl Jam, Jane's Addiction, and REM are the Trinity of my youth \ life.

    So I am on a huge Jane’s Addiction kick right now and I was curious what other bands people here might recommend that are similar and possibly a bit less known?

    Three Days mmmmmm, wish we would get it in HD already

    Listening to Nothing Shocking and how the hell did that come out in 1988 with the state of what was going on in music. Hair metal and cheese rock clogging up the works and JA put out Nothing Shocking. Right around the time of GnRs Appetite for Destruction. 
    Janes are pioneers and deserve as much credit as anyone as forebearers of what was about to come. In awe

    I'm assuming you are checking out Porno for Pyros already.

    there was a side project of Jane's with Steve Issacs on vocals called The Panic Channel. They only released one album and one or two non-album singles but I dug it. was back in 2006 I think.

    Satellite Party wasnt bad either. 

     Seeing Perry at Lolla with the school of rock backing him was amazing 

    Janes is amazing,  the band fits together so well...The pieces are unreal, and the sum is even better.

    Love Navarro's work on the guitar
