I mean yes I love them to death, but they're one of the few bands that comes around and blows me the **** away.

They're in a league of their own, in the same way that Tool, Opeth, Queensryche, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Jane's Addiction, and Mike Patton are.

What is it about these bands? They all don't play the same genre. They're NOT THE BEST technical players and they're not the best looking artists. They're music generally isn't considered mainstream.

So just what is it?
could it be... you like them? (dun dun dunnnnn)

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

Because they make good music?
No i mean I used to listen to rap like underground rap and then i quit and now my friends who still listen to rap i tried to get them to listen to this and they said:

Mastadon is literally the ONLY modern metal band I like. Dunno why, they're just great.

I don't think half of the bands you listed are even very good.

Maybe you just find them to be on a different level than other bands. I'm sure plenty of people would disagree with that opinion.
This is a dumb thread.
You just named all your favorite bands and asked why you like them...
The same reason I thought Blood Mountain was awesome and Crack the Skye was turd.

Personal taste.
