    Yeah, The Beatles are probably the best band EVAR and will likely be the first band that you think of...

    ...but who, apart from that group, would you say is your favorite band (At least at the moment, as this is a very "fluid" title)?

    I must say, I'm really torn. I *love* Queens of the Stone Age, and Black Sabbath and Dead Can Dance (as you can see I'm all over the place with my tastes), with Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters and Soundgarden following closely. I just can't pick!!

    So howsabout you?

    Writing the most beautiful music to be found and the most intriguing visuals, which they do themselves, period. Take 9 minutes and watch this. See what you think. This one song brings me to tears every time. I think it's because it sound like love enduring beyond the end of time.

    And they rock too.

    got a similar taste in music with you avg. queens of the stone age have been my favourite band for years - completely their own sound, dirtiest rock - i'm not going to get into it too much though. second best probably Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

    My favorite band *Right Now* is Cradle of Filth - YouTube - Swansong for a Raven

    There are lots of bands that I love, and some have been my favorites since I was a kid... but this is the band that I can't stop listening to at the moment, and the link I posted is my favorite song by them at the moment!

    Seen some interesting choices, and some cool new bands to look into....thanks all for sharing!

    I'm also really into Portishead and Massive Attack, right now. And when I need to kick it up a notch from there, there's Every Time I Die, and (a killer two-piece) Death From Above 1979.

    Let's keep 'em coming!

    One of the absolute greatest bands of the last century (and hopefully of this one. they haven't produced too much lately), is XTC!

    They're one of the most innovative, strange, intelligent, diverse pop-groups around!

    I might get slapped in the head for this, but I think Andy Partridge is as good a songwriter as both John Lennon AND Paul McCartney!

    For anyone not familiar with this band, check out one of their songs:

    YouTube - Xtc - Love On A Farm Boys Wages

    I am a big fan of U2.
    They know how to make a statement with their music and also how to have fun.

    Favorite band for the last 7-8 years: Dream Theater....a band that can, and does, sound like anything from Yes/King Crimson to Sabbath/Metallica. Best drummer (Mike Portnoy), one of top
    guitarists (John Petrucci) along with Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, incredible keyboardist (Jordan Rudess), and bassist (John Myung). Most talented band I've ever heard.

    Others over last 40 years:
    Beatles
    Zeppelin
    Yes
    Rush
    Queen....

    among others
