I have been enjoying Dinosaur Jr.'s latest album. Glad they're still producing great music.

That's very well put.

For me, the greatest will be in no particular order but very deep personal connections and memories.

The Clash- first music that I loved that my parents hated (something about jumping in the Thames to escape the bomb freaked them out)

Talking Heads- first band that really showed me music could be art

Joy Division- found because of a girl who would break my heart, but showed me that I wasn't alone in those feelings

EDIT: Honorable mention to Elvis Costello via Nick Lowe. I used to play "what's so funny bout peace and understanding" when i was ticked at my parents

Great picks! Out of your top 3 who's your favorite?

Does this have to be rock band?

Can Dave Brubeck Quartet count?

If not, I would go with The Moody Blues.

Talk Talk

Laughing Stock, The Colour of Spring, and Spirit of Eden always stay in my rotation

Yum!Yum!ORANGE

Very upbeat j-ska... What makes me like them, is the very catchy brass sections and basslines, probably the sweetest vocalist I´ve ever heard and seen and the way they make their music. They don´t try to boost the sales with anything, they simply made good and honest ska no matter how un-trendy it is. Always gets me in a bit better mood when I hear this band.


PanterA

Dimebag Darrell being probably my favorite guitarist most likely explains a lot... ;D And, they were simply kicking ass more than anyone! In metal, huge amount of my favorite riffs and solos came from the strings of Dime´s Dean ML.

I don't really have a favorite band these days, but no band has more profoundly influenced the development of my musical tastes than Rush.

I don't get Rush fans...

:P

Without any hesitation, "Blondie"
post #58 of 166
I have to say probably Radiohead.

But others that were close are Coldplay, and Rise Against. I like the older stuff just don't love it though...

Ween, I can listen to them all day long, every day and not get sick of them.

I do not have a favorite band only a lot of favorite LPs. No one band could be it for me now. When I was 16 I had a favorite band.
