Favorite bands and WHY
There is probably a thread about this, but I'm not gonna look. So shoot me for being lazy. I was wondering what everyone's favorite bands were AND WHY. I listed a whole bunch here because I'm bored.

Avenged Sevenfold(earlier stuff was great, sad that Shadows has to ease on the screaming)

Cradle of Filth(Dani has a strange tone in his screaming. The music is just beautiful in my opinion. Terrific stories. Damnation and a Day is one of the best albums ever.)

AFI(I like the later stuff, like Sing the Sorrow, nice riffs and Davey has a good voice)

My Chemical Romance(Like both old and new)

Mindless Self Indulgence(great band live, love the sound)

Weezer(From Blue Album to Make Believe, great band. Love the lyrics)

Red Hot Chili Peppers(Nothing I could say about this band would justify my love. Talented and wonderful)

No Doubt(I fell in love when they first came out with self titled No Doubt but they slowly wound down. Return of Saturn was the breaking point)

Modest Mouse(Weird vocals....dont like vocals too much, but lyrics are great and melodies are great)

Motley Crue(Also great live. Oh, what I wouldnt give to party with them. Nikki Sixx is a great wongwriter and he's a ****ing badass.)

HIM(Ville Valo has a great range and a nice crooner voice. nuff said)

Dresden Dolls(Just weird. Awesome lyrics)

HelloGoodbye(more of a pop-punk thing. But the tunes are catchy)

Pavement(strange mix of country, blues and rock. It just sounds good. They also did a great cover of "The Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen. They remind me of the Cure)

Lacuna Coil(Its nice hearing a frontWOMAN sometimes)

We Are Wolves(Also just really weird band. Kinda fun to listen to)

The Cure(I'm an 80s child at heart, born in the wrong decade. I mean, I can pull off the hair and I prefer 80s music to much of today's. I just love the Cure in all aspects....'cept Robert Smith's hair because he's scary to watch)

Xiu Xiu(Although there is one song that just scares me...I like the originality)
Hawthorne Heights(Really sucks live. But I still love Ohio is for Lovers. Call me a loser, I'll admit it)

69 Eyes(Just got into this band after hearing a demo. Sounds just like Type O Negative, but more meoldic. And Type O Negative does really bad covers)

Twisted Sister(I almost got a internship at the company that manages them. Oh, I would love to meet Dee Snider. He could kick anyones ass in makeup!)

Marilyn Manson(Love the sound, not nescessarily him. He is ****ed up in the head)

Ozzy Osbourne(Along with Black Sabbath. And who doesnt like Ozzy, c'mon)

Rammstein(All around fun to listen to)

Blind Guardian(really talented band, love the vocals. Interesting stories to tell through their lyrics.)

I think I got most of my favorite bands. I'm interested to read what everyone else has to say.

to Pipers, when you make long list, it helps to break things up. It becomes easier to read. :)

Between the Buried and Me - Technically superb and one of the truly original bands performing today. The guitar work of Paul Waggoner is absolutly amazing and the rest of the band is top notch. Every one of their 3 albums is different and inventive. Amazing band.

With Passion - Sheer inventiveness. And now that they recruited the guitarist from Conducting From The Grave IT'LL ONLY GET FASTER!

Genghis Tron - techno meets hardcore. I'll say nothing more

Blind Guardian- They combine all sorts of old school metal, and a bit of blues too. They also sing about LOTR, which is why I got into them...

I fixed this one, cause I went back and realized it was kinda jumbled. Thanks for pointing that out.

i think the same thing.

my list for now:

Sunny Day Real Estate:
they really know how to rock there instruments. the lead singer has a very different type of voice, and knows how to write good/great songs. this band pulls me in.

Alkaline Trio:
this band, is a perfect mix of punk, and pop.. there's no post hardcore or anything here. there songs go from being really personal and heart hitting to really down right stupid and funny. these three guys really know how to get there fans attention with there fun music.

Pink Floyd:
Dare i say it.. cause of there MANY amazing albums with all those amazingly writen songs.. to david gilmore guitar playing, and i dare not forget Rogers voice.. as well as whne David and Roger sing together (same time) when there voices mix its amazing, very good sound.

Judas Priest:
Rob's voice, his writings are great. Some of there songs start to sound the same after a while but i love there songs either way.. this band is amazing and really knows what there at in the metal scene.. they always catch my eye just when i expect to lose interest.

Led Zeppelin:
this band is the perfect mix of blues/pop/rock and a little hint of country here and there.. but together makes songs like All of my Love, Dy'er M'aker, tangerine, Houses of the Holy.. there sound doesn't seem awkward to me.. like Bright Eyes, he/them/that band seem to go all over many type of music aswell BUT! there music actaully changes.. like it seems like a totally different band to me. With Zeppelin its more like you can always tell your listening to them.. the way Boham was playing the drums, the way the base and guitar was being playing.. to Robert Plants amazing voice.. it was so easy for me to fall in love with this bad growing up.

thats it for now..

Lard- Just got into them by recomendation of MURDER JUNKIE. I like hearing Jello with a driving guitar and drums behind him.

Dead Milkmen- Just got into them also. The humor is great, but they do have some serious songs.

Big Black- I love noise, so of course I'm going to love this band.

Goon- Finnish Ska, it may be a gimmik but it is a hella good one.

Robert Johnson- All his songs he sounds like he is singing from his soul and just puts everything into them

Reverend Horton Heat- Rockabilly+Psychobilly and then there is the fact that The Rev. is an insanely smooth guitarist and Jimbo is a great bassist. Also they have a great humor about them.

I'll stop there.

Light This City- I like the vocals. Very nice.(for a female)
Diabolical Masquerade-mind blowing. It is the sex
