1. Radiohead: Alternative Rock. The band that has covered the most ground over the span of their career; Radiohead has covered everything from the simple rock 'n' roll on "Pablo Honey" to the genre-crossing experiments and textured soundscapes of their newer releases. If there's one modern group we will remember in 15 years' time, it will be Radiohead.

2. Slowdive: Shoegazing. The word shoegazing most commonly evokes the noisy droning of My Bloody Valentine and the infectious pop melodies of Ride, but just as experimental as the first and just as catchy as the latter was Slowdive. Their album "Souvlaki" was a landmark of the Shoegazing genre, but it is on their third release, "Pygmalion" that they truly reached the height of their potential. "Pygmalion"'s gentle, abstract structures and minimalistic, post-rock approach resulted in a genre-bending album that was more mature than other efforts within the genre.

3. The Blood Brothers: Post-Hardcore. One of the noisier and more experimental bands to emerge from the post-hardcore scene. This band manages the impossible in unleashing their cathartic noise whilst retaining catchy pop structures.

4. Malajube: Indie Rock. A progressive francophone group whose every song could be a single. Their punk-influenced, spazzy rock 'n' roll manages to stay fresh on each new track.

5. A Place to Bury Strangers: Shoegazing. One of the more recent 'nu-gaze' bands, A Place to Bury Strangers is only a three-piece, but that's very hard to believe, seeing the amount of sound they generate.

Not saying you have bad taste in music, but Dispatch is nto a jam band... they do improvise some, but they cannot be classified as a jam band. I like them, but they aren't a jam band. Jam Bands are liek Grateful Dead, Allmna Bros. Band, Umphrey's McGee, moe., Derek Trucks Band, Samadhi Vibe, Gov't Mule, Disco Biscuits, STS9, or String Cheese Incident adn stuff like them.

It's a 'Top 5 Most Favorite Bands' list, not a 'Top 5 least subjective of musically objective great bands'.

In no order (way too hard to rank them):
Misfits - Glenn Danzig was a genius of sorts. A unique singer as well. Lots of very enjoyable melodies and tunes across his catalogue. Very fun music.

Immortal - Their range of black metal is great, a taste of raw bm, dynamic, thrashy bm, epic bm, etc... Very headbangable. Bonus points for being an internet meme resource. Funnily enough, I recall once laughing at Abbath and Horgh after seeing them in a 'Top 10 ridiculous black metal band/photos'. Years later, and they're one of my favourite bands

Mr. Bungle - Yet to hear anything like them, only imitations/tributes. Patton, Spruance and Dunn are also quite genius-like (Forgive me if you think I'm abusing the tag 'genius'). Again, a very strong catalogue, each album is unique on its own.

Slipknot - I reckon ever since I started getting into music, Slipknot have been one of the few bands I've consistently enjoyed. I didn't dig Volume 3 or AHIG much, but MFKR, the S/T and Iowa are still great ear-candy. Lots and lots of hooks, catchy riffs and melodies.

and sneaking into the last vacant position:
Dream Theater - I really don't like where they've been heading lately, but their early to mid-material was incredibly orgasmic. Back in that era, their music was a perfect combination of technical skill and emotional material (particularly with Kevin Moore's songwriting abilities).

yes, i listen to some mediocre metalcore. this is true. but that's not all i listen to - and this is where it starts getting subjective, so arguments open.

but let me tell you this: i'd much rather be listening to innovative and interesting music such as BTBAM, TDEP, Chopin, or Meshuggah than bland and overproduced stuff. this is a view which i believe many, many more people should hold.

what is the point of music? to stimulate. how is stimulation carried out? novelty and interest. how is novelty important? progression. in short, music is supposed to evolve, and evolution is only processed through stimulation. see the circle?

of course, someone will then argue that i'm trying to force views on others which i really should keep to myself, and then i will declare that i really don't give a sh8t, and then someone will call me a music nazi and i will henceforth be disliked universally. whatever. it's the internet.

Interestingly, I praise you for your views on music.
I hate overproduced stuff, the most obvious example from today's music scene being Coldplay's Viva La Vida, and it loses it's quality when it's overdone.

For me, music is for appreciating life.
I'm from a Christian high school and the worship band leader nudges me to join the band as a guitarist, even if I'm still a novice, but I can't because it contradicts with what I believe in music.
I started guitar because I want to rock and roll, and rock and roll is for the people, as Ozzy Osbourne said, therefore I can't play music to worship God because that doesn't make sense to me.

I still don't get your circle theory
