Hmm, now that this thread is starting to talk about the real bands, I'll add my list.
A Perfect Circle
Rage Against the Machine
Van Halen (not Van Hagar)
Slipknot (just for "Wait and Bleed")
but i dont really have a nr.1 favourite band. i like alot of bands and i cant choose one of them to be better then the other.
because the bands i like are all equal imo ;-)
you cant compare them either.
for example i enjoy listening led zeppelin and pennywise and you cant compare that to eachother.
or bad religion and queen. no way you can compare that.
or greenday and H.I.M.
or guttermouth and Nightwish.
just... nvm i could go on forever and ever hehe
but if i have to pick one from this list i would choose linkin park simply because they make cool video clips ;-) though i like their music too hehe
Well, the stuff in the poll is decent, but not exactly great. At least try to listen to something a bit more original. If you like that kind of sound, but want something more original, check out the groups Stroke 9, and Ozma. From Ozma, I'd try the songs Spending Time, and Shooting Stars. For Stroke 9, they've got their biggest hits, Kick some A**, and Little Black Backpack, but i'd also add Washin' and Wonderin' to the list.
As for my list of favorites:
Stroke 9 (didn't see them coming did you?)
My Chemical Romance
They Might Be Giants
And then i listen to tons of singles from other groups
None. Its all a bunch of recycled crap. I dont deny listening to slipknot and LP but heres some band that beat the crap out of them:
Dream Theater <--if you like tool, try them, they utterly own tool
Metallica from black down
The eagles!! (ok really just that one song....)
Lamb of God (if you like death metal, try them)
Ozzy osbourne (hes a bumbling idiot but the musics great)
Black sabbath (before the bumbling idiot years)
Eh.. so much hate for all these other bands. I mean, if you don't like them than that's fine, but the level of hate some of you have for other bands I just won't understand. A lot of the bands out there that are mainstream sound the same I'll agree, but most of them have decent sounds. They're mainstream for a reason, the majority of the people out there think that they're good. The band having a good sound doesn't mean that I respect them though, there are only a few bands that I truely respect, and it takes more than a good sound for that. Saying that they're trash though, is just plain mean :/.
Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd (Dark Side Of The Moon is the best album, imo ^_^), The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Chilli's, The Beatles, Queen, The Stones, some Blur, and some Green Day. Also, Franz Ferdinand are alright.
I've really gotta get a ahold of some Old Metallica, I hear good things.
