Re: Top 20 - Bands

I wouldn't dare to make a top five out of my favorite bands, it was hard enough making a top 20. Music moods and needs change constantly throughout the day, so I'll just list 20 that remain consistant.

Type O Negative
NIN
Pearl Jam
Ozzy
Pantera
Metallica
Dave Matthews Band
Garbage
Fiona Apple
Van Halen
Korn
A Perfect Circle
Coldplay
Beatles
Black Sabbath
Bon Jovi
Pink Floyd
Bruce Springsteen
Soundgarden
U2

Holy crap that's a lot of hair metal!

At least you didn't say Poison or WASP, though.

It's sad I use to like Poison when first started. I remember Unskinny Bop was first on the radio. Could also add Warrant to that list.
