OK, so as you might know, there are PLE-ANTY of bands around, some jaw-dropping, some noticeable but no quite there, and the ones that don't at ALL belong in the in scene. What does a great band need? Hair? Looks? or is it the powerful feeling of a beautiful verse fading into a chorus that just makes you completely orgasm all of yourself? As we all may know, a band isn't just songs, it's about meaning. What is the message spoken to you as you just sit there, a slight headbang and some mouth movements as you scream out your favorite song in your head? Is it funny? Can you relate to it?

Post what you think! And don't be afraid to hold back
Catchy chorus. A catchy chorus has always been and will always be the key to being the best. And that applies to almost every genre of music.
Also try to avoid the whiny "my girlfriend just left me" trend... It's annoying.
