Re: What is your all-time favorite band?

It's hard to pick one favorite, so I just took a look at what band I have the most of in my library, and it's a tie between Led Zeppelin and Queen.

Re: What is your all-time favorite band?

I would have to go for Nickelback as my all-around favorite band (with the Fray being a close second). It's really hard to choose just one favorite though, since it's all mood-dependent.

TSO is definitely the best seasonal band

Re: What is your all-time favorite band?

Ok, I have to pick two because the genres are so massively different:
AC/DC and the London Symphony Orchestra

Re: What is your all-time favorite band?

Death Cab For Cutie.

And I agree with Foxy that the London Symphony Orchestra (they often do scores for movies, right? Like James Horner's and John Williams' stuff? They must do Classical stuff, too, being in London and thus inherently quality-things-presenting... ) is also high on the "good list."

This is true, but AIC is a band I can listen to no matter what mood I am in.

Ah, yeah. Braveheart. That's actually the first thing I thought of when you said that (vaguely remembering reading "LSO" on the back of the soundtrack).

It would be amazing to see them perform one of those films' scores live. Death.

Re: What is your all-time favorite band?

It tends to shuffle 'round, but when asked this question for the past few years, it's always been The Mars Volta/Omar Rodriguez-Lopez for me. They do such amazing stuff with music that I've never heard before. I've never heard anything like them, nor do I feel like I ever will again.

If your definition of favorite band is what you've been listening to more than any other, then recently, it's The Beatles. Before that, it was Michael Jackson, and before that, it was The Postal Service. ...I need to start another obsessive phase with a different band.

I discern the highest conception of emancipation as a golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of the illuminated ones as flowers appearing in one's eyes. I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain, Nirvana as a nightmare of daytime.

Imogen Heap or Social Distortion, listen to either in just about any mood. Lately I have been in a slipknot mood.. Still listen to ^both on the side.

I just listen to too many bands to pick a favorite of all of them.

Vanilla ice cream can be the favorite, and then berries and cream frozen yogurt can be the favorite... very comparable, but still different.

Honestly, my two choices are so different in genre that they're like vanilla ice cream and pineapple pizza: both favorites for completely different reasons.
