my all time favorite band is Pearl Jam. without question. "In My Tree" "Given to Fly" "Crazy Mary" way too many to list. an all time great band that i think quickly gets overlooked.

my screen name will tell you my second favorite band is Led Zeppelin. "Heartbreaker"

its really tough to narrow down bands and songs. any song at any time can become a favorite. Alice in Chains, Hieroglyphics, the Beatles, Rush, Tool.

The Beatles, RHCP, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, AC/DC are a few of my favorites. I also like the early era of gangster rap before it was all about money and pimping - stuff like Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E.

By far it has to be Pearl Jam. I first saw them in 1991 at a show in San Diego with the Peppers and Nirvana right before all those bands hit. Simply amazing. Yes, old man 78 moshed!! (younger back than)

I think they get overlooked due to the times blackdogsong. After about 96, they refused to cooperate with mainstream media and found their own skin, musically speaking. While it was awesome to see them in the prime of their popularity back then, it is nice to see them now without the the 13 year old girls screaming for Eddie to take his shirt off. They do what they want for the fans. Their ticket prices are VERY low through the band's efforts and they were the pioneers of music sharing on the internet. When people can't make you their sluts, you get ignored in the mainstream. They are more of a "fans" band than ever before.

Rough list of bands (varies, but this is a good core)...

1. Pearl Jam
2. Neil Young
3. Bob Dylan
4. Nirvana
5. Soundgarden
6. The Melvins
7. Sonic Youth
8. Alice in Chains
9. Velvet Underground
10. Smashing Pumpkins

Just too many....R.E.M., Fugazi...I can keep going. Wow, I left out The Beatles. Dinosaur Jr., Pixies...too many...Stones

Songs (even tougher, and I'll forget...screw the rankings, it changes too often)

Porch-Pearl Jam (acoustic version of Ten)
Outshined-Soundgarden
Sugar Mountain-Neil Young
Anything Dylan mumbles
Pumpkins' Gish album is awesome from start to finish
Dinosaur Jr.'s first 3 albums from the mid 80s are solid

Too many to count. September 16th at PNC Park in Pittsburgh- Pearl Jam opening up for the Rolling Stones...I'll be there !!!

I'm old and still like the bands that were around when I was a kid. Pink Floyd, the Moody Blues, Cream, Led Zepplin, etc were my favorites then.
I understand Roger Watters and David Gilmore have come to an agreement and will be getting the original Pink Floyd back together. I'm looking forward to hearing them.

It is just too hard to pick one single band, but if I had to pick one, I'd pick U2. I really love their music and they seem to get better with age. I also love the music from a lot of the others mentioned, so this is not to discount them. You all ought to check out http://www.radioparadise.com since they play a lot of this music (and no ads!).

Kinda tickles me to see Ricky, who leans right, enjoy Dylan...LOL.

I'm not a HUGE Stones fan blackdogsong, but they've grown on me in recent years. Never liked them all that much til recently. My musical taste really hasn't changed since I was in my late teens and early 20s. I'm all for rock n' roll being the voice of youth and all those idealic principles. That's part of youth. Of the bands I listed above, rarely do I play them on a consistent basis (aside from the ones who have had a longer career). For instance, I'm not going to listen to Nevermind over and over again for a two week stint. Those days are long, long, long, long gone.

PJ is touring Canada if you can make it up there. They've kinda adopted our neighbors to the north as their own country.

Few other bands that I missed...

The Pretenders
The Who
Screaming Trees

I just like good music, Buckeye. And Dylan, IMO is almost certainly the best songwritter of all-time. And I do lean right, but its not like I oppose civil rights or anything so Blowin' in the Wind doesn't exactly burn me up. In college, I had two posters up. One was Bob Dylan and one was John Wayne. Kind of like the helmet in Full Metal Jacket with the peace sign and the 'Born to Kill' sticker.

Anything like the above soothing music is OK by me. Of course, the only pain is re-glazing all the window panes in the house after a night of relaxing tunes...
