Preferable modern rock so I have a chance of seeing them live and getting hyped about a new album. I know there's recommendation threads everywhere, but I don't think those are specific enough, so whatever.

I like most Grunge music and hard rock/pop rock from the 90's. My two favorite bands are Stone Temple Pilots and Tool. I also like catchy alt-metal/nu-metal(Breaking Benjamin, Drowning Pool, Godsmack, Slipknot, InMe, Chevelle...stuff like that) and most mainstream post-grunge(Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Bush, Foo Fighters).

Some other misc bands I like(I'm listing them seperately because I don't necessarily like the whole genre they are associated with, but I like them):

Porcupine Tree
A Perfect Circle
Incubus
RHCP
Faith No More(actually, I would probably like any funk-metal bands you guys have)
Green Day
Metallica
The Offspring
AC/DC

Three. They're a progressive rock band signed to Metal Blade (for some reason). Listen to their album The End is Begun.
My band, Escher
My progressive rock project, Mosaic

Try Umphrey's McGee, they're kind of (really) a jam band if you're into that stuff. Proggy stuff, and they're plenty modern seeing how their latest album, Mantis, came out in January.
Gear:
Ibanez RG350DX
Peavey Vypyr Tube 60

Currently saving for:
Agile/Gary Kramer 7 string

If their mainstream(like Saliva, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Collective Soul, AiC) I've probably heard them.

I'm listening to the Three album on youtube right now, first track.

Scars on Broadway. Don't really know the current status of the band, but their album is siiiiiick. Daron Malankian is my favourite.

definitely the flaming lips. their album "yoshimi battles the pink robots" is like a mix of electronic/psychedelic/alternative. it's awesome. another album of theirs called "the soft bulletin" is considered to be one of the best albums of the 90s.

tv on the radio and silversun pickups are great too. tv on the radio sound more modern, while silversun pickups incorporate a lot of elements of 90s rock. they're compared to the smashing pumpkins a bit I think.

and have you tried listening to the white stripes?
Gear:
'50s National Archtop
Squier Classic Vibe '60s Tele
Squier Affinity Strat
Gibson Melody Maker
Vox AC-15
50s Stella Parlor Acoustic

MOAR FIRST ACT
I was there

Nektar

They're a 70's prog band, but they still tour, and have all the original members, unlike other 70's prog bands like Pink Floyd and King Crimson.

MGMT

They're a Neo-Psychedelia band, really good, too.
