Default One Band

If you had to only listen to one band for the rest of your life, what band would that be? Like if you were on a deserted island, with only a cd player, and all of a band's collection (and, yeah, a bunch of batteries)

I would choose Pink Floyd, because, one of the credentials of a band that you won't get sick of, is being able to make you notice little subtleties in their music that you hadn't noticed before. (Much like great movies) I could probably sit around and study Pink Floyd's music for the rest of my life, and constantly be noticing little intricacies that I had missed before, and the music would always remain relevant and interesting and thought provoking.

Opeth by far. Opeth pretty much does what was mentioned above about Floyd (probably not as much though.) Not only that, but their diversity between melodic guitar passages, heavy moments, great progressive drumming (at least when Lopez was in the band,) and vocals that are quite amazing for the genre. Opeth is the only band that I have yet to get tired of listening to.

Tool. I've never listened to a Tool song that I don't like, and I have listened to all of them. They never get old.

I think I'd be happy enough if I listened to nothing but Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Every time I listen to one of their songs, I noticed something new about it. And their songs are so long! It's great!

my dad asks that question all the time. And I find it a stupid way of saying what band do you think is always listenable?

Because honestly you never will be stuck on a desert island where you have the choice of one cd because:
1. All the islands have been bought up
2. Their would need to be electricity to play the cd, meaning it isn't deserted
3. Why would the person abandoning you on a desert island give you only 1 cd? why not 2? Why not the whole collection?

So you'd listen to your own bullshit then?

I'd probably get up on I Hate Myself, Death Cab For Cutie, The Smiths, Saetia, Bright Eyes, or Elliott Smith to intensify my depression.

Probably Godspeed You! Black Emperor, if I wanted to amplify the longevity of my dismal and hopeless situation.

Either/Or.
