What are your favorite bands?


Recommended Posts

Oh god, it's so difficult not to sit here and just list everyone on my iPod/in my collection etc... There's a lot been named that I'll second, but to be really clear I would say my top 3 of all time are: LZ, Foo Fighters and Oasis.

Vying to get up there too would be the likes of (in no particular order): Guns N' Roses, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Feeder, Iron Maiden, Stereophonics (you can start to see my teenage Britpop leanings coming through strongly!), Smashing Pumpkins, Fleetwood Mac, Silverchair, Green Day, Blur, pretty much anything that appears on Guitar Hero wink.gif ... yeh I could go on as there's loads I've not mentioned that I really should. Like most people, I go through phases and revisit the old faves again and again!

I HAVE ALWAYS PREFERRED THE ROCK, BUT I DON'T LOVE MUCH THE RIGID DIVISION IN MUSICAL GENRES ... .. the only distinction that makes sense I think IS... between good and bad music.........
