    I would say Nick Cave. I'm not entirely sure what brand of NT though ...maybe INTJ or ENTP.

    I skimmed through an interview of Serj Tankian in a paper where he said something very Ni-ish about himself as a person not being the author of his songs.Like he just fishes them out of some etheric song space. A kind of a scribe for the muses.... and when the journalist said it's not possible he began to just rip the guy a new one. Hurled every possible insult on the guy... ...maybe INTJ ( no offense INTJs)

    I think Marilyn Manson is an NT, personally. I read his autobiography. It did not scream "feeler" to me. None of his lyrics (read up to -96 when I stopped buying his records) are "we" in any way, which I'd really really expect from a supposed INFJ.

    IRL I think the punk scene is a good place to find ENTPs and INTPs a plenty...

    I perform and occasionally arrange rather than compose, but I can understand this. Not so much that I am a different person when I play, but it allows me to express a much different side of myself from my other pursuits.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Seen strong cases for Maynard James Keenan (A Perfect Circle and other related acts) being an INTP. I would agree based on his lyrics. I am also fairly certain that Marilyn Manson is an INTP.

    When I write music though, I do it with an NF perspective.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    Bruce Dickinson is more likely ESTP. I mean, the guy used to be a member of the British fencing team, and his favorite hobby is to fly with aircrafts. His lyrics are also ESTP-ish. So much Se in it, in my opinion. I mean, you are supposed to take the lyrics literarily in how they describe a certain experience or emotion. All the sensory details point towards the inward experience (inferior Ni).

    Songwriters: DICKINSON, BRUCE / SMITH, ADRIAN
    Slowly bleeding, watch the vortex feeding
    Like a swirling vulture on your face
    Every hour the unseen rays devour
    Your screaming eyes cry out but they are blind

    Father, forgive me my sins
    Give me the nails, I'll hammer them in

    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Say farewell, we may never meet again
    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Get on the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

    Brave new world of secret fantasy
    That hovers just beyond your bloody grasp
    Close enough to thrill, the danger of the kill
    Price for failure of your will

    Father, forgive us our sins
    'Cause we're all the junkies who never can win

    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Say farewell, we may never meet again
    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

    Father, forgive me my sins
    Give me the nails, I'll hammer them in

    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Parody of hope is the one that I must kill
    We all have to live with our family inventions
    Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Say farewell, we may never meet again
    The road to hell is full of good intentions
    Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    Neil peart definately doesn't seem to like debates or challenging other peoples views the way an ENTP would. Granted he often can talk the hind leg of a donkey but i'm fairly confident this is because he has aspergers, not because he's an extrovert type. I could see him being a number of introvert types to be honest - INTP, INTJ,INFP and ISTJ all seem to fit him to one degree or another.

    Geddy doesn't seem INFP at all to me. I think he's an STP or and NFJ (whether intovert or enxtrovert i can't tell).

    I think Kurt Cobain was a unhinged INTP, who had aspergers (there are interviews where he interprets questions very literally), and this condition gave him anger-regulating difficulties a la craig nicholls. Not that INTP's don't typically have anger issues cos they usually do, but over the long-term they usually find a way to effectively deal with it, and usually want to cos they don't like succumbing to illogical things like intense emotions. Kurt Cobain was different because of his condition. Add constant drug taking into the mix and no wonder he was so angry. However people look at how emotional he was and conclude he was INFP, and that seems to be the ONLY reason people come to that conclusion. For me his cynical nature and nihilism point to INTP. The fact that his emotions weren't heavily expressed through facial expressions, or by any external expression other than screaming doesn't mean he was an Fi user, as again having aspergers can give you a blunt affect, where its not obvious on the outside what your feeling no matter how intensely emotional your feeling on the inside.
