    NIN could easily be on my list. My list was far closer to 20 bands I like than my top 20.

    Absolute favourite is Soundgarden.

    Pretty close behind....

    The White Stripes
    Rage Against The Machine

    And the rest...

    Pink Floyd
    Midnight Oil
    Radiohead
    Blur
    Audioslave
    Led Zeppelin
    Pearl Jam
    Pulp
    The Doors
    Oasis

    Small list it seems, but bands just kinda make me think rock outfits I guess, not individual artists or other genre acts. Whatever, it doesn't really matter because my Top 3 is up there and that's all that counts to me these days!

    I don't know if I can get a top 20, but what I do like:

    The Offspring - Been listening to thier new album a lot lately. Very good comeback.
    Linkin Park
    Green Day
    Credence Clearwater Revival
    The Beatles
    Rolling Stones
    Metallica
    Lostprophets
    Foo Fighters
    The Who
    Queen
    Guns N' Roses
    Seether
    Godsmack
    System of a Down (And I've heard a song from the spin off group Scars on Broadway which I liked)

    I don't know, I'm really getting into the hard rock alternative stuff that you'd here on Octane or The Sqizz if you have Sirius or XM (respectively). Ranking current bands is tough since it depends on the music. For example, I've heard some of Saliva's stuff as well as stuff from Trapt, but I don't know the longevity of those bands nor have I heard more stuff from them. I also listen to country but in terms of bands, there aren't that many. Mostly of them are solo artists.

    I'm looking to fill my Itunes library with more hard rock (Too much pop and country and indie artists that I'm starting not to like such as a Seattle Group called Long Winters) stuff so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm listening. :)

    (Really, I mostly listen to film scores and jazz artists... I have a White Stripes album, and a few other CDs, but none that I could immediately list as my "favorite").

    One of the best pieces of advice I've taken away from this board, in 7 years on here. Thanks again, Canadave! :D tomalak301, based on the rest of your list, I'd encourage you to take the man's advice. I know I certainly am glad I did. I started listening to them about what? 5 or 6 months ago, Dave? And with the possible exception of the time about 6 1/2 years ago when someone told me told me to give Babylon 5 a try, this is the most valued piece of advice I've ever received on this board.

    Still mystifies me why these guys are so huge in Canada but they've never made it down here. IMO, they are all kinds of awesome. :techman:



    My list:

    Top 5:

    1. Bruce Springsteen
    2. Pearl Jam
    3. Bon Jovi
    4. The Tragically Hip
    5. U2

    Others include (in no particular order): Queen, Journey, Fuel, REM, Alanis Morissette, The Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, The Beatles, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Green Day, Nirvana, The Police, The Counting Crows, Prince, The Sam Roberts Band, Soundgarden, 3 Doors Down.

    And even though they're just a baby band at this point, I do like Daughtry.
