So.... what is everyones favourite band(s)?

Mine is Opeth, their style is (what I would call) Extreme Progressive Metal, and I would recommend them to anyone that likes any kind of metal.

Katatonia are also one of my favourites. They used to play Death/Doom, but now it's more Depressive Rock.

What about you? What is your favourite band, and why?

It's a tie between Pink Floyd and Camel at the momen, they both make some awesome progressive rock.

I really like In Rainbows, but I don't listen to them that much.

Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are my two favorite bands of all time.

Led Zeppelin for the band's overwhelming talent. Jimmy Page's insane guitar skills, John Bonham's powerful drumming chops, John Paul Jone's multitalented Bass, Keyboard, and banjo abilities, and Robert Plant's godly vocals. The blend is good old classic rock, fun to listen to.

Pink Floyd are just one of the most creative and incredible bands that ever formed. 3 of the most amazing albums ever made are made by Pink Floyd: A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. They fall into the range of Prog Rock, and great classic rock. And another one of my favorite guitarists, David Gilmour, plays for Pink Floyd. He plays with a mellow tone, yet with that mellow playing, he also plays with powerful emotion. The guy is a true guitar god.

But don't take my word for it, you have to really listen to these bands to understand what I mean.

Rapture. They are from Finland and sound similar to Katatonia's first album but better.

It's probably a tie between Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, and Garbage.  Yes, I know the latter doesn't fit my trend.  Leave me alone.

Man I could list a billion bands... I really like progressive stuff like Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes. A lot of punk, particularly the Ramones, Sham 69, Dead Kennedys, the Damned. Hip Hop is awesome, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Beastie Boys, NWA. I also like rock from the 50's like Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon, Chuck Berry. Stevie Wonder is a hero of mine. The man can play piano and the drums like a badass and he's blind.

Just bands, or do solo acts count? If it's only bands, then Radiohead, Sigur Rös, DMB, The Mothers of Invention and spanish rock band Héroes del Silencio.
