The Beatles - My favorite band I'm doing their nomination for MB hof

Led Zeppelin - Never really got into them. I guess it's possible to love them but Plant's voice really irks me. Page's guitar is very good, but never touched me deeply at all.

The Who - Love all of it. Saw a live concert when I was 12

Pink Floyd - Early stuff is my favorite

The Doors - Dislike Morrison, the rest of the band is alright. Organ never sounded good on their songs though.

Jimi Hendrix - I like him a little. A listen from time to time.
Boston - Hard rock with an arena flavor, loud guitars (not just heavy) and pompous vocals that sound like anthems all the time. not really my stuff.

Amon Düül II - Don't listen to German music too much, but I have heard a bit of them. A little experimental stuff.

The Velvet Underground - Great stuff, I got their first 4 albums.

Johnny Cash - Him and Buddy Holly are most of the 50s rock I listen to.

Nirvana - They're alright, don't listen to them too much and are a bit overrated.

Aerosmith - what I said earlier about them

Van Halen - Hard Rock stuff I never really liked

Ravi Shankar - Finally someone who likes Indian music too.

The Black Keys - My friend JUST bought an album at Newbury comics today (I bought 'Barrett' album there)

Coldplay -

The Rolling Stones

Creedence Clearwater Revival -

Allman Brothers Band - Can't relate with them too well, my friend loves em but I can't listen to much of their stuff without being bored (espicially live stuff). Little Martha is alright though. I prefer the Duane Allman songs.

Frank Sinatra - Never heard him.

The Grateful Dead - Barely heard 'em. I guess Casey Jones is okay, but it's not my music.

The Moody Blues - I usually like lush pop, can't listen to these guys though, especially with the over-dubbing

Red Hot Chili Peppers - really don't like 'em.

Steely Dan - can't love them. I can admire their skill, but it gets really dry sometimes. A lot like some of LZ and most of Allman Brothers Band.

Tony Bennett - Never heard him.

I like most of your stuff though.

Most of the stuff at the top I listen to more, most of the stuff at the bottom I listen to less. It's my favorite 25 (most played)

Syd Barrett
George Harrison
Pink Floyd (early stuff and 'Animals')
Velvet Underground
The Clash
The Who
Ravi Shankar
Beach Boys
The Yardbirds
Jethro Tull
The Monkees (laugh all you want)
John Lennon
The Byrds
Procol Harum

Dammit, I did Urban first you all ignored mine.

Beatles - Either my favorite or second favorite band.

Ween - Haven't heard much from them.

Syd Barrett - I think he's great and all, I especially love that psychedelic style of guitar playing that he pretty much pioneered. But I do think he's overrated. He only penned a few great songs with The Floyd, and they have had many more since. I'm tired of people saying the band ended with him.

George Harrison - One of my favorite guitar players and he penned some truly great songs, I love the solo stuff of his I've heard but I certainly need to hear more outside of All Things Must Pass.

Pink Floyd - Argubly my favorite band.

Cream - I think they're great, and certainly the best thing Clapton ever did.

Velvet Underground - Maybe a little overrated by the hipster crowd, but they were a very innovative band and they have some amazing songs.

The Clash - Love em.

The Who - Love em.

Ravi Shankar - I have one album by him, The Sounds of India, it's really good and I've been interested in hearing more from him.

Beach Boys - Great, though Pet Sounds as big of a landmark as it is, still might be a tad overrated.

The Yardbirds - Roger the Engineer is an awesome album, but theres a lot of bands I only know by one album. Jeff Beck is a guitar god, that much is clear, and to be honest I prefer his solo stuff.

Jethro Tull - Freaking love this band.

CCR - I used to heavily into them, I still think they're great.

The Monkees - Lol

John Lennon - Only his first two albums matter to me, but they're so damn good.

The Byrds - Never been too heavly into that kinda rock, but they're certainly a great band.

Procol Harum - Their debut is excellent, though that and A Salty Dog is all I know.

Primus - Awesome band, though it's been a while since I've listened to them.

Beck - One of the most innovative and creative artists today. Odelay is one of my favorite albums, and I love how he could do something completely different like Sea Changes and it still be very good.

King Crimson
The Beatles
The Residents
Pink Floyd
The Flaming Lips
The Replacements
Super Furry Animals
Led Zeppelin
Brian Eno
The Smashing Pumpkins
Gentle Giant
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
The Clash
Porcupine Tree
My Bloody Valentine

And please grill me this time.

I just had a great idea, anyone who has already given out their top 25, if they rate someone elses and it's their turn again, just give out the next 25, and so on.

And I would merge this into a new thread, if I knew how.

OK. I will do Proggys:

The National-Never heard a single track by them.

Converge- Only heard a couple of tracks but nothing new to me.

Spoon- who?

Public Enemy-Great band if a little dated. I rarely listen to them these days though.

Counting Crows-I cannot stand these. Typical MOR to me.

Company Flow-Who?

Deltron 3030-Who?

King Crimson-I have a shedload of their back catalogue on my other PC which I have'nt transfered. I have barely listened to any of it but their debut is amazing.

Bon Iver-Oh yes. I have converted a few posters on here to his music

Terence Trent D'Arby-His debut was a good pop album and he did one or two decent things after. He should have had more longevity.

Cody ChesnuTT-Who?

David Bowie-Station To Station is my favourite and I have been listening to 1.Outside and Earthling lately. Great albums. I probably like his glam era the least!

Coldplay-Oh god no. The new album shows some departure but hate this bland stadium lighters in the air rock. Spies is a very good song admittedly.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds-just gets better with every listen. Abattoir Blues has been played a lot recently.

Common-Is he a rapper? Heard the name that's all.

Radiohead-not much to say is there? A band that have worn the genius cap many times. The Bends is a patchy album though.

Comus-First Utterance is a brilliantly wacky folk rock album but I have to be in the mood for it.

Tom Waits-When I am in the mood for Waits, his music hits the spot. Phenomenally good artist.

Comadre-another rapper?

Colour Haze-The stoner band? If so they are OK but Tempel has never blown me away. Masters Of Reality are one of the best stoner bands IMO.

Leonard Cohen-Jeez. Anyone got a serrated knife for my jugular? Talk about melancholy!

Bright Eyes-no no no. Not my thing at all.

Andrew Bird-Who?

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth-I only have one Pete Rock track and it ahem rocks! but that's it as far as I know.

My Bloody Valentine-Isn't Anything is near my all time top 10 albums. Nuff said.


Pink Floyd.
Porcupine Tree.
John Martyn.
Fields Of The Nephilim.
Iron Maiden.
Frank Zappa.
Nick Cave.
Massive Attack.
Fela Kuti.
New Order.
David Bowie.
Barclay James Harvest.
Black Sabbath.
Tangerine Dream.
Kate Bush.

Pink Floyd. Never was a fan but Pipers is blowing me away lately, brilliant album.
Porcupine Tree. Believe it or not i've never listened to them!
Slayer. Made my favourite metal album. Respect.
John Martyn. Nice enough, doesn't really catch me.
Fields Of The Nephilim. Whoosh.
Clannad. Judging by the track on your mix, quite nice.
Iron Maiden. Not a massive fan but you've got to love some Maiden every now and again.
Hawkwind. Reminds me of an ex so i've never really delved in much, nice trippy stuff though.
Dubmatix. Great ecclectic dub, glad i checked them out!
65daysofstatic. Never heard anything, nice name though.
Lamb. Pretty good, should get an album at some point.
Frank Zappa. I only have a greatest hits comp at the mo, really great.
Nick Cave. Yeeeeeah. What a man.
Massive Attack. Love them. Mezzanine is a classic with me, i adore it.
Fela Kuti. The 'oo?
New Order. Alright, not astonishing though.
Freestylers. They're one of those names i know but i can't attach to actual songs!
David Bowie. Just... the best. It's hard to do such an artist justice in words.
Barclay James Harvest. Ermmmm
G.B.H I recognise the name, but again...
Fugazi. Good stuff when you're in the mood.
Mogwai. I hate the term Post Rock but they're my favourite post rock band.
Black Sabbath. Yeah got to have a bit of Sabbath.
Tangerine Dream. Never heard anything.
Kate Bush. She's responsible for some damn good pop songs. Hounds of Love is cute weirdness at its best.
