I'm sure this has been done before, but let's do it again for no reason whatsoever.

Basically, what would your ultimate band sound like? I don't mean in terms of picking members, but in terms of musical elements.

Don't flame, and make suggestions if you know any such bands.

My perfect band would have to be generally energetic, but also capable of writing songs for every mood (a lot of bands can't). Simple but catchy, perhaps poppy melodies are good, but they must still be considerably heavy and aggressive (what I'm in the mood for right now). Mad guitar skillz would be nice, but are not 100% necessary. Guitar solos would be great, but not overdone. Powerful, driving riffs are a must. Frequent use of Major, Mixolydian, Natural Minor and Dorian modes. Vocals do not have to be amazing, opera vocals, as long as they're not too whiny and depressing. They must sing about more themes than just relationships.

A recent band that has come pretty close is Set Your Goals.

What would your ultimate band sound like?

Your ideal band kicks ass.

My ideal band would be something with the spirit, freedom, and spontaneous songwriting of Led Zeppelin combined with the technical skill and mastery of Dream Theater, and then they would have a baby with Muse, and it would create my ideal band.
