    Ok i dont want this to end up a royal rumble between people who disagree with eachother, cos i know u guys (n gals) are much more civil than that.

    Anyway, in an effort to boost my cd collection and my views on newer bands, i would appreciate it very much if u guys could tell me your favourite rock band/artist, it can be from whatever era as long as it is rock...so no punk music!!!

    thanx

    p.s i am personally torn between Iron Maiden and Guns N Roses, just to start you off!

    Hmm. I have a hard time claiming a single band or song as my favorite.

    As many know, I have to vote for In Flames.

    As for modern rock, well, Disturbed, Godsmack, Deftones, 3rd Strike, Quarashi (kinda rap-rock, but it still rocks), and I'll probably get stoned for this, but I really think Limp Bizkit is trying to make a decent try with there most recent album.

    Alot of people like Foo Fighters, Fuel, The Ataris (remade "Boys of summer") uhhh, just to much.

    And of course the kings of metal, Pantera.

    jimmy p, if you don't have Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, ignore what everyone else has said and go buy it right now.

    If you do have it... I don't know how your tastes are, but probably the most underrated rock album of all time, imo, is Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix. If you like more modern sounding stuff, I highly recommend A Northern Soul by The Verve. It's not traditional straight up rock, and it's a bit on the dark side, but if you ask me no one creates whole atmospheres with the guitar like the Verve guitarist Nick McCabe.

    What is with all the hatred towards LB? They pretty much created this entire new trend of music, and now they've even started to get away from it back to a more rock sound.

    And aside from the techno spelling of Limp Bizkit in "Behind blue eyes" remake, they did an awesome job. Hell, even Fred picked up and learned the Bass after losing Wes, and I think there newest album is better then ever.

    But opinions are like asses, and there is alot of music to listen too.

    I mostly just curious why so many people dislike LB? And even still why so many people dislike them, but there album sales do so good?

    PS. About the stoning.

    Apparently, you've never ridden much dirt bikes. I'm used to deflecting rocks at 50 mph on a two wheeled machine. Give me yer best shot.

    Limp bizkit, just dont appeal to me, the one song that i do like from them is "Behind Blue Eyes" but i am a Big Fan of the Who, and their origional version is alot better.
