I do. Foo Fighters ma nigga. I have three actually that have been my favorite constantly; Foo Fighters, Local H, and Everclear. They've really been the only constants for my taste in music.
#43
Yeah, I know what you mean. I don't really have any band I consider a favorite, I just listen to something I'm in the mood for.
#45
I certainly do, and that band is the Deftones.

Metallica. Favorite band since I was a wee lad in 7th grade. There's periods where I won't listen to them for months but I always come back.

I've got a list of favourite bands


As I grow older it just keeps getting larger
It's over simplified, So what!

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Currently probably M83. But it changes every month or so, so I guess not.

I've been a big Radiohead fan since I started listening to music but I don't listen to them all that much these days. To busy enjoying new stuff.
#50
BTBAM and Periphery have been my favorite bands for the last few years. I feel like I've known BTBAM forever. Periphery was a kick in the balls when I first heard them and they've stuck. A close third would be between The Contortionist, The Human Abstract, and Protest the hero. That would be my top five bands of the last decade.

The Mars Volta. Although I don't care as much now that I'm grown up.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

And now that they haven't had a truly impressive album in quite a while.

Its all been downhill since Jon left.

And then they let a white guy join the band.

The worst part of getting older though? I kinda like Styx now. I've been singing Come Sail Away for a week now.

You think that's bad? I found myself voluntarily listening to people like Katie Melua and Norah Jones recently. I think I'm turning into my mother.

I also watched an audience with Rod Stewart on the TV over the Christmas break.

I'm so ashamed.....

I was looking at a Salvador Dali painting the other day and I said to myself... My god this is a stupid painting. That guy needs to grow up.

Exactly this.
#59
Bands that always have me coming back, even after long stretches of not listening to them are LoG and Metallica. I don't know why.
There are loads of technically and conceptionally better bands.
Loads of bands with catchier tunes.
Loads of bands with superior song writing.
Loads of bands with better singing/lyrics.
Loads of heavier bands........but I always come back to these two. And when I do, it's always like a breath of fresh, satisfying air.

I just don't know why
#60
In the past I've had favourites, not so much now. I do have bands I can listen to in any mood and enjoy and consistently come back to, like The Books, Modest Mouse, Smashing Pumpkins, Gorillaz. Then I have artists I'm really into at the present, but it's a fleeting love. Right now, it's Tom Waits, specifically The Black Rider. Great album.
RIP Adam

Sonata Arctica from Finland were the band that actually got me into music passionately, and that was in 2006 i think? I know the feeling of having musical favourites get spanned out over a selection of artists and genres. However, every time Sonata bring out an album, I come back to my senses of them being my favourite, and that feeling hasn't gone yet, so I still reckon that they are still a Number 1 Band for me, even if sometimes I forget it, due to the other amazing artists out there too
#63
No i don't have a favorite band. I can't say that i like everything equally but it sure feels like that sometimes. RHCP used to be my favorite band for years, but now there are many other bands/artists which I believe are on the same level as them and it would be unfair to those bands and to my own musical opinion to elevate one above the rest because i go through cycles of listening to absolutely everything in my music library. I mean, I listened to Simple Plan the other day, 9 years after I decided that i was done with them...I can't say that I will never listen to them again because what if i want to

Quote by due 07
is there any band that means more to you for whatever reason than any other band? (this is to all the i-don't-have-a-favorites out there.)

RHCP got me into playing guitar and many, many other styles of music esp. with their early stuff. Their music also helped me get through some very difficult times, so even if i don't listen to them as much anymore, I still appreciate what they helped me with even if it was indirect help. I also know all their songs by heart and I've attempted to learn most on guitar and i know stupid trivia factoids etc etc etc so I've probably put more time into liking them than any other band.

Bands what I've seen live also have a special place in my heart even if i don't like them as much non-live because of the unique experience I had listening to them perform right in front of me - this is why I like The Kooks

oh and if someone has introduced me to a band I will forever associate everything about that band with the person. lyrics, general feel, etc. which is kinda creepy if it's a UGer but if you happen to identify with this, take it as a compliment cuz you probs have good taste

grr I keep remember extra things to add to this post, but for instance: I don't really listen to metalcore/the like anymore so I won't specifically go looking for new bands to listen to. But if a band I was familiar with before (like parkway drive) releases new material i will def check it out

No favourite artist no.

I just chop and change between what I listen to.

At the moment I'm just working my way through all my unplayed music alphabetically.

I'm currently on The Clash, then Coldplay, and Contra.

The Living End are great, wish I had more than just a few songs.

same here man, I started with them in year 6 (equivalent to grade 5) not ashamed to admit it. Priest would be a close second though
My shitty gear:
Vox AD30VT-XL
Danelectro Fab Metal
Zoom 505 II

My own band.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#69
No. I still have a load of favourites (seems natural really) but I listen to a lot of different music for different reasons so having one particular favourite isn't something that I've felt necessary for a long time.
#70
Don't know. A few artists/bands but not a single specific band I just through and through love.

Been listening a lot to John Frusciante lately. Mostly his solo stuff and specifically Curtains, The Will to Death and Shadows Collide with People. Maybe him?

Earlier it's been both Babyshambles and Bob Dylan and The Clash at times. But meeeh. I like music and I really can't decide on a single one.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Right now it would be Protest the Hero and Between the Buried and Me

But it kind of depends on my mood. Those two I can listen to anytime really. But if I'm in the mood for something mellower I love The Strokes, M.I.A, Weezer, and Muse, and if I'm feeling nostalgic I'll blast some Green Day.

Green Day was what got me into music originally so they will always be one of my favorites.


I also still really like A7X because they got me into guitar and were a jumping off point into heavier bands like PtH, BTBAM, Mastodon, and Converge. I wouldn't even put them in my top 15 bands right now if I were to make a list, but I will most likely always like them for nostalgic reasons. They are just a fun band to listen to to me.

There aren't really any bands that I once liked that I don't like now.

Nah. I go through phases of playing one band constantly until I burn them out. Right now I'm on Alice in Chains, and my last phase was Deftones.

I'd say the two most special bands to me are System of a Down and Dream Theater, though. System inspired me to get better at guitar (Green Day was initial inspiration to play), and Dream Theater opened me up completely to progressive rock and tons of my current favorite music. Barely listen to either of those bands anymore.
#75
For the longest time growing up, back when I was in middle and high school, it was always the Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails. I don't have one particular favorite band above all, but those two are still among my favorites. Coheed and Cambria are also one of my all-time favorites, but I got into them in later high school.. haven't listened to them quite as long as Nails or Pumpkins.

I think, even with all the bands I listen to, I can safely say Brand New is my favorite. They've just been consistently on point with their music, and no matter what music phase I'm going through, they're still perfectly relevant. I'm never really not in a mood to listen to them, and their songs have meant a lot to me at different times in my life. I still draw a huge amount of inspiration from them, so yeah.


Brand New.
Favorite band.

Come at me.
