My Favorite "Nerve-Wrecking" Bands

As what I've used to; I listen to a song depending on my mood, when I'm upset then I listen to an hardcore song when I'm in a good mood and it seems that I love to see everything then I eavesdrop to something mellow or happy songs. Listening to my favorite songs is my past time (sometimes when I'm not busy) and i can't help myself to sing it loud!

Here is a list of my favorite "nerve-wrecking" bands:

The nom de plume Secondhand Serenade is a reference to the way in which his songs were sung to his wife Candice, with whom he has two young sons. All of his songs were devoted to his wife as he loves to “serenade” her. Unfortunately, the couple broke up in 2008. Vesely was heartbroken as can be seen in many of his songs.
