All three bands are simply amazing, and their the only bands that I get excited about new releases.

Ahh, june's gonna be good, 9th Feeder's new single We Are The People gets released and then 10th AFI's EP gets released:smallsmile:.

Queen are pretty high ranking aswell though.

My top three bands/artists are

Relient K/Switchfoot (Tie)
Weird Al Yankovic

My top five would include Five Iron Frenzy

2008-05-01, 01:07 AM
Mine varies a lot. It has been different things at different times. Mostly heavier rock/metal.

Bad Religion holds the current apparently best.

Then I'd add:
Three Days Grace
Breaking Benjamin
Flogging Molly
Billy Talent
Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Then some Audioslave, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers

A lot of individual stuff in terms of groups as well. Halo 2 Soundtrack has parts from a lot of different groups. Also, Korobeiniki by OZMA (GO TETRIS SONG+!)

2008-05-01, 01:10 AM
1.the Who/David Bowie/Nirvana
2.Green Day
3.Less than Jake

Love Bad Religion though.

2008-05-01, 07:56 PM
2. A Perfect Circle
3. Nine Inch Nails

TOOL is always #1, but my other favorite bands quickly change places.

2008-05-02, 04:17 AM
It's like choosing your favourite child, only.. hard.

1. Pink Floyd
2. Bob Dylan
3. Arcade Fire/Porcupine Tree

Oh man, now I need to go repent for not mentioning all those other great bands/artist.

Lord of the Helms
2008-05-02, 07:53 AM
1. Iron Maiden. They really examplify everything that metal, and music in general, is all about.
2. Virgin Steele. So gloriously epic, beautiful and melodic.
3. Manilla Road. So gloriously epic, gritty and raw.

Wizard Guy
2008-05-02, 08:39 AM
1. Lemon Demon
2. Jonathan Coulton
3. They Might Be Giants

I'm surprised no one else said TMBG.

2008-05-02, 03:28 PM
Nickel Creek has that one amazing song: A Lighthouse's Tale

2008-05-02, 03:50 PM

1. Alkaline Trio

Yoritomo Himeko
2008-05-04, 10:42 PM
Here are three of my favorites.

2008-05-09, 02:44 AM

Come on, SARUMAN as a narator?

2008-05-12, 04:49 PM
1. Third Eye Blind
2. Sublime
3. Streetlight Manifesto

Is it bad that Third Eye Blind is the only band I really like anymore? I mean sure, I the other two bands on this list are good, but after awhile I just get tired of them, and some other bands take their place as 2 and 3. I don't really know where I'm going with this. Carry on.

2008-05-12, 04:51 PM
Double post, my bad.

Shadow of the Sun
2008-05-14, 04:52 AM

Mr. Mud
2008-05-23, 11:50 AM
This would probably be a bit different If I had a ton of time to think, but I don't.

AC/DC or Metallica
Led Zeppelin (spelled correctly on the first try, mind you.)
The Beatles

And 4-10 are a bunch of Indie bands :smallcool:.
