I know one of Hit The Light's album is Drop Db, and a few metalcore bands use that tuning. jeeze... if it was Drop Db you were asking for, i could list quite a few.

Slayer used it on some stuff, as did Winger, Pantera(Shattered is in Eb, I don't know if anything else they've wrote is in Eb though, as much as I love them I've never bothered to learn much Pantera), Yngwie Malmsteen(I'm not sure if it was all his stuff or just some, I think it's all of it though) and Van Halen. Those are just off the top of my head, I'm sure there's many more bands that use it. It's about all I use aside from E. XD

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

Why would you want to learn some Eb stuff?
I mean, it's only half step down... there's basically no difference!

Try DADGAD,etc tunings - thoses are some different and very funny/interesting tunings! Eb is just boring... (or just a tuning that is not special, to my ears)

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

No difference? try ALWAYS IN A DIFFERENT KEY.

How can that not be different?

thin lizzy has quite a lot Eb i think
also nirvana, deep purple maybe?
the drills, not really well known sadly, look them up they're great, play Eb live as far as i know/heard. the records are on E standard though.

also, it gives a singer more range (the reason why some bands use it), and imo sounds nicer. one semitone can really change the feel of a song.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

No, they always play a half-step down live. They have a couple songs that are in Eb on the albums, but the majority of it is in E.
