Basically the title. I've done a thread like this before, to good results, so I'm doing it again. But whenever I see threads like these, I see bands that I know I would never listen to, but are merely on the lists because they're someone's favorite band. So, as before, here's a list of every artist on my Zune for reference. Please use it when thinking of bands. Ones marked with an asterisk (*) are bands in my top 10 favorites.
The Alan Parsons Project
Alice in Chains
The Allman Brothers Band
The Bloodhound Gang
Blue Oyster Cult*
Coheed and Cambria
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Derek and the Dominos
Guns N' Roses*
Jimi Hendrix/Jimi Hendrix Experience
Less Than Jake
Mott the Hoople
Plain White T's
The Presidents of the United States of America
Queens of the Stone Age
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Rolling Stones*
The Smashing Pumpkins
The Steve Miller Band
Stone Temple Pilots
System of a Down
Three Days Grace
Three Dog Night
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

First of all, great list, nearly all the music I listen to and mostly excellent choices.
I'm gonna suggest Feeder, from the list you'd probably like Polythene(their debut) the most, but all their albums are good. They also have a new album coming out in june.

I'll go with a few suggestions:
1) , steady as she goes, by the raconteurs (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZYQr3Ivg6w&feature=related)(lead singer is Jack white of the white stripes)
2) burning beard, by Clutch (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-s7P6s0YXGk), mainly cos i recommend clutch to everyone i meet. they write some really, really weird lyrics.
3)Knights of Cydonia, by Muse, (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jV1bRfLHA3A) One of the most overblown songs i know and a absolute blast, with a good music video. here (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=inW91qRDGwI)is thier cover of Nina Simones 'feelin good.
4) Slither (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Vewm5l-i-yw)and She Builds Quick Machines (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YwJhQnt34m0&feature=related), velvet revolver. The band is basically one that Slash put together after he left Guns n Roses. it's made of win.

Alright, all 6 bands posted by Semidi Oregano have been written down on a list to listen to. Storm Bringer, a few things.
1) I hate the White Stripes. HATE. I only like Seven Nation Army, and that's the only song I have.
2) Clutch, alright. *Writes down*
3) I actually own the Black Holes and Revelations album, so I already have Knights.
4) I already have both those songs, along with a few other VR ones.

Dire straights? Money for nothing is a real classic.
ohh, Blur? If you like Oasis, then their is half a chance you'll like them, half a chance you'll hate thier guts.....
05-03-2008, 04:28 PM
You might like Rainbow and Blackmores Night (by Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple) and 80-s Gary Moore (played guitar for Thin Lizzy)
05-03-2008, 04:34 PM
Not a fan of Dire Straits, but I'll give Blur a listen.
I've heard Rainbow, and they're alright. never heard Blackmore's Night, I'll give them a listen.

What albums of Red Hot Chili Peppers do you have?
Right now I'm listening to some Queensryche, and they're pretty darn good. And it looks as if we have the same musical taste. You might want to check them out.
05-03-2008, 05:11 PM
Based on the bands you marked as favorites, I'd suggest Wolfmother.
05-03-2008, 05:12 PM
Uh, I've got all of Stadium Arcadium, and then Scar Tissue, Californication, Higher Ground, and Can't Stop.
05-03-2008, 05:24 PM
You might like By the Way by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
And definitely the Yardbirds. The Yardbirds had Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.
John Frusciante's Shadows Collide with People is excellent, as is Serj Tankian's Elect the Dead.
My musical list is as follows, looking very similar but a bit longer:

Ashley Parker Angel
Bay City Rollers
Blue Oyster Cult
Broken Social Scene
The Charlie Daniels Band
Children of Bodom

Any more suggestions?
05-04-2008, 12:48 PM
I recently had the band Therapy? suggested to me in school, you might like them, I believe there best album is troublegum.
05-04-2008, 08:49 PM
You seem to be missing The Sex Pistols.
I'd also suggest taking a listen to Desert Sessions (some combination of QotSA and other random members... maybe pre-dated QotSA)
For some nice change-up you could grab some Ani DiFranco.
I also am a fan of older Nine Inch Nails when I feel angry. (pre-downward spiral)

Kansas is really good.
So is Flogging Molly, but it's Irish Rock, and I know some people don't like that so much.
05-04-2008, 08:57 PM
Uh, I can't stand the Sex Pistols. NIN, I know I need to get some of. Flogging Molly, meh. Kansas, meh.
*Writes Desert Sessions and Ani DeFranco down*

Based on your starred bands, which seem to veer towards post-70s classic rock with a twist of weird, I recommend giving T-Rex and The New York Dolls a try. The Scissor Sisters are MTV-Generation versions of the same. You also might like some Sonic Youth, I recommend starting with the album Dirty or Experimental Jet Set No Star (or something like that).
