    9/8 is not an odd time signature at all...

    Seems odd Mastodon are so high up on this when they have almost no songs that stray out of 4/4, 3/4 or 6/8. Y'all need more mathcore, free jazz and 70's prog up in here. Stranglers have a few as well; Golden Brown's a waltz that slips from 3/4 to 4/4 every fourth bar, adding to 13/4. Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells has some weird ones as well. Bjork's been all over 17/8, Mahavishnu Orchestra's Birds of Fire is in some weird 5+5+5+3 with the drums going 6+6+6, and if you have to go with the whole progressive metal thing (which is, again, overwhelmingly 4/4), at least go for Gojira's Art of Dying. I don't even know what that one's doing. Also Battles. Always Battles. Oh, and orcs march in 5/4.

    pacothe, next time you check Muse, take a listen to songs like Assasin or Micro Cuts. they do change time signatures, though not so frequently.

    And why are Sigur Ros and Muse on these charts? Last time I checked they don't even change time signatures.

    Woah man, let's get some more artists connected to this group. Namely The Dillinger Escape Plan, because they're ridiculous. And Tool, and Mars Volta, and Between the Buried and Me, and The Sound of Animals Fighting, and The Fall of Troy, theres alot missing here.

    Check out the band "Icarus The Owl" 90% of their stuff is in an odd meter. A part in 23/16! :)

    @igor paersson Regular time signatures like 4/4 6/8 and 3/4 most definitely serve a very important purpose in music. They're the most natural ones and there's a reason people compose with them 95% of the time. When used effectively, they can stir up emotions from the listener that irregular time signatures cant (or at least not in the same *natural* way). It's precisely this which irregular time signatures exploit and what makes them so effective. It's that missing beat, that added beat, the alternation of meter that draws in the listener. Have you noticed how in lots of avant-garde rock, they often use *regular* time signatures for the most emotional sections? If you feel you can't enjoy music in regular time signatures put on Dvorak's New World Symphony and get back to me ;)

    @fading will You can group 9/8 as 2+2+2+3 I don't know if that would *technically* classify it as an irregular time signature (in an academic sense), but the alternations between duple and triple would result in an irregular feel

    If I remember well my musical classes, 9/8 isn't anything like an odd time signature, but a basical ternary meter...

    I have to say when I started to understand other ts than the regular 4/4 6/6 etc. it really opened my eyes to music and after that 4/4 sounds very lame.. nowadays I really cant see myself composing or even enjoying the basic timesignature music.
