    Well, which is it for you?

    Definitely Belle & Sebastian, in my opinion. :)
  2. sleepy_sarge New Member

    One best band?

    Cant be done, I'd be in permanent edit mode....

    Oh well at this second of this minute it's Green Day
  3. fudgecake New Member

    yay! well said.

    Can't choose a definitive one, but Green Day do rock.
  4. Mooseman New Member

    Who are they?

    I reckon Queen are the best ever!

    "I want to ride my bicycle"

    Classic :D

    Edit: Greenday also rule! \m/
  5. fudgecake New Member

    Queen also rock. Aren't I the literate one? :D
  6. Toaf New Member

    The bestest band ever. :lol:

    They're a Scottish indie-pop group. DON'T LET THE WORD POP DISCOURAGE YOU! Their music is seriously some of the best ever comitted to tape. And their new album Goalkeeper's Revenge is out soon! Yay!
  7. fudgecake New Member

    Kaiser Chiefs are great! Go local boys! :lol:
  8. Toaf New Member

    Oh they are. I just watched the NME Chart Show and I predict a riot was n.1 ! Go Kaisers!
  9. Mooseman New Member

    Wow! we almost like the same music...

    Just don't say any Boybands.... Or i will have to kill you all! :D
  10. fudgecake New Member

    Yay!! Ricky Wilson is so great when you see him in a show, he can't stay still! I saw him on T4 and he broke the set! Way to go!! :lol:
  11. Toaf New Member

    This thread is swelling alarmingly in manner of a tropical mosquito bite or similar!
  12. colonesque10 New Member

    Even though we've got some top bands at the mo i'd still have to say 'The Beatles' or 'Queen' :)
  13. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Pink Floyd
    Rolling Stones
    The Who
    Grateful Dead
    The Police
    Talking Heads
    Jethro Tull
    Buddy Holly

    put em all in a blender and grooooooooove.
  14. Mooseman New Member

    I couldnt imagine Beethoven, Bach or Vivaldi "grooooooooooving!"
  15. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    poor thing
  16. Cynical_Youth New Member

    Mooseman, try Tenacious D - Rock your socks off, it has a rocking Bach solo.

    Bestest band? Changes on a weekly basis. Right now... Revis, Seether or Chevelle.
  17. Electric_Man Templar

    Best band in the world? Got to be the rubber band, easily thrashes the alice band among others.
  18. Rincewind Number One Doorman

    My favourite band right now is Kaiser Chiefs. The rock like a woodHorse on bits of bend wood.
  19. Tephlon Active Member

    Hmm. Bands...

    At the moment I'm going to go for:
    - London Elektricity (Live Drum 'n' Bass)

    But the Red Hot Chili Peppers rock immensly and are my alltime favorite.
  20. sampanna New Member

    You forgot David Bowie!
  21. Andalusian New Member

    I'm suprised no one has mentioned Led Zeppelin. They rock more than anything has ever rocked my socks before 8)

    Other bands that rock my socks:
    Deep Purple
    Pink Floyd
    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
    Joy Division
    Nine Inch Nails
    New Order
    Black Sabbath
    Franz Ferdinand
    System of a Down
    Midnight Oil

    Actually, come to think of it there heaps of bands that rock my socks. There should be a massive really excellent band made up of all the bands that are good. That would rock.
  22. drunkymonkey New Member

    Iron Maiden, obviously.
  23. Saccharissa Stitcher

    New Order *headbangs to 'Slow Jam'*
  24. Toaf New Member

    Ooh, I love that song. I'm pretty sure it was used in a Weebl and Bob episode!
  25. fudgecake New Member

    Have you heard "Tribute" by Tenacious D? That song rocks so hard. :D "All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon in the middle of the road. And he said 'Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul.'" :lol:
  26. Mooseman New Member

    Ive seen the video as well!

    Daft Punk are the coolest for me atm. I'm Downlaoding all thier stuff.
  27. fudgecake New Member

    I've never heard of them... Don't kill me! **hides under desk**
  28. Dane New Member

    OK I like plenty of bands:

    System of a down
    A Perfect Circle
    Slip knot
    Dash board confessional
    Kings of Leon
    Marilin Manson
    Rob Zombie
    and the white stripes

    I also like Greenday, well the older stuff at least the new stuff I don't like at all :roll: .

    I also like blink 182. But they've split up now :(
  29. Mooseman New Member

    So quite the Emo/Goth choice there.. but i noticed MCR or Nightwish arent in it :shock: ?
    Why not!! (They rock slightly)

    And i never knew Blink had broken up.. Oh well

  31. sleepy_sarge New Member

    lol Toaf - up until now I've been congratulating myself on knowing 99% of the bands listed here. You just blew that out of the water!!

    *suddenly feels ancient*

    edited to remove surplus L because I'm not Welsh
  32. fudgecake New Member

    Or from Llamedos, like Imp y Celyn. :D
  33. Toaf New Member

    don't worry Sarge - i have no idea what most of the people here in this thread are talking abou... er...

    ANYWAY, if you're downloading (or even better, buying!) around now, definitely get Sufjan Stevens' new album. Go on. You know you want to. :)
  34. sleepy_sarge New Member

    Edited - point taken Garner!
  35. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Personal request...

    Please don't talk about downloading copyrighted material, gang.
  36. Dane New Member

    I know it suscks. I think it's because Travis (the drummer) signed a deal with MTV to do a reality TV programme called "at home with the barkers"

    I haven't watched it yet but it's meant to be good. Anyway reality TV destroyed the band (see! I told you, reality TV with be the death of us all).

    Mark and Tom have now joined a band called "box car racers" there pretty good, a little heavier than Blink. Travis has gone to another band, but it sucks and I don't know the name.

    anyway. MCR are good and I do like them but there way to over-rated. the lead singer if a big headed twat aswell. I'v heard of nightwish but never heard any of their music.

    A few people have told me that I would like HIM. Before anyone suggests them I think they suck. there just so melodramatic. How a band can be melodramatic useing music I don't know but they've managed it.
  37. hermes New Member

    Bands? Hmm. I absolutely love Paris Combo. The Pillows, too. Excluding them, it's mostly non band type music for me.
  38. Cynical_Youth New Member

    Okay, thinking about it some more I've decided it's list time!

    A Perfect Circle
    The Exies

    Submersed is my favourite at the moment, you can listen to most of their songs here.
  39. Marcia Executive Onion

    I don't have a best band, but part of a general list of very good bands.
    (I'm only mentioning ones that I don't think were mentioned already.)

    Blue Oyster Cult
    Lou Reed/Velvet Underground
    The Kinks
  40. Delphine New Member

    Hummm, the eternal question. I don't know how many times i've tried to answer this. The answer always changes.

    Muse are the best band around at the moment. The Beatles were the best band ever.

    I also really like Led Zepplin, Thin Lizzy, Hendirx, Rammstien, Kaiser Chiefs, Jack Johnson, Lynrd Skynrd, Gorillaz, (their new album is excellent) Nirvana, Eric Clapton, Leftfield...

    Some oddments:

    Jacques Loussier, who recreates Baroque classics as mellow jazz. Which sounds odd, but is super :)

    And my dad recently bought Dub Side Of The Moon... it's Dark Side of the Moon, totally re-done in reggae style. What Garner called "stoner music". Once, again, brilliant :shock:
  41. Electric_Man Templar

    Best new bands (ie debuted in the last year) for me are Bloc Party, The Bravery and The Killers (if they scrape through on the year thing).

    Otherwise? Radiohead and Coldplay are probably my two most listened to bands, which makes them my favourites.

    On the 'bands most people probably haven't heard of' scale, I also like Grandaddy, Kashmir and Lemonjelly in particular.
  42. Orrdos God

  43. Rincewind Number One Doorman

  44. sleepy_sarge New Member

    Not the Monkees then? :roll:
  45. Rincewind Number One Doorman

    hey hey we're the monkees, and people say we monkey around
    But we're to busy luaghing to but anybody down

    I do like them and thier show was great.
  46. TheJackal Member

    Best Band Of All Time: Queen or U2.
    They both have unbelieveable back catalogues

    My Favourite Bands At The Moment:
    The Killers,
    Kaiser Chiefs,
    System Of A Down,
    Damien Rice.

    I've seen all of my current favourites in concert, except System
  47. Andalusian New Member

    Agreed, and not just because I have a thing for boys in eyeliner.
  48. Jinxted New Member

    Bay City Rollers

    Hands down bestest Band ever!
    Now I'm gonna wander off and sober up.
  49. Toaf New Member

    bye bye baby, don't make me cry... bye baby bye bye... :rock:
  50. Hex New Member

    Hey, there is no shame in liking boys in eyeliner!! Though I agree, it's not the only reason to love placebo. Or Green Day. Or Nirvana, come to that.

    I can't choose the bestest band in the world, but I have many contenders who constantly fill my playlists:

    Green Day
    Velvet Revolver
    American Hi Fi
    Marilyn Manson
    No Doubt (and some of Gwen Stefani's solo work)
    Kaiser Chiefs
    Jimi Hendrix
    Bryan Adams
    Foo Fighters
    Scissor Sisters
    My Chemical Romance
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    The White Stripes

    Don't make me choose. I'll cry and be sad like Bob. :(
  51. Andalusian New Member

    Noo!!! They, along with the other horrible pop-punk and pop-emo out there at the moment, should be on a list of the worst bands, not the best. :( < me when forced to listen to Green Day or MCR.

    Another bestest band that I really like is Ministry. Really good industrial stuff. Big influence on more mainstream bands like Nine Inch Nails.
  52. Ivan_the_terrible New Member

    Ludwig rocks. :)

    My favourite:

    The Doors,
    The Who,
    The Velvet Underground,
    Loving Spoonful,
    Joe Cocker,
    The Smiths,
    The Killers,
    Eddie Cochrane,
    Simon & Garfunkel,

    Splean (Russian)
    Nautilus Pompilius (Russian)
    Vopli Vidoplasova (Ukrainan)
    Okean Elzy (Ukrainian)
    Ya i drug moy gruzovik (Me and my friend the lorry) (Ukrainian)
  53. Dane New Member

    OK I'm adding some more....there just so good!

    Willie mason (or is that willy? I don't know)
    take back sunday
    Weir Al Yancovich (he's good for a laugh)
    Funeral for a friend
    Sum 41
    and Monty python

    [i:968b2e3d19]I've got a loverly bunch of coconuts
    there they are stunning in their own
    give 'em a twist
    a flick o' the wrist
    thats what the showman said[/i:968b2e3d19]
  54. queenynci New Member

    Am I the only Genesis fan here?
  55. sleepy_sarge New Member

    If it's the Peter Gabriel incarnation then I will timidly admit to being one also.

    But not the Phil Collins one - no thanks!
  56. queenynci New Member

    Peter was a bit deep for me sometimes, still bloody good though!
    I prefer the earlier Collins stuff, especially And Then There Were Three.
    I must admit, not really fond of the new line-up
  57. colonesque10 New Member

    I forgot to add that Queen and the Beatles are only my favourite bands if were not taking into account the mighty McFly, of course. :)
  58. Delphine New Member

    Firth of Fifth! What a fucking incredible song! Was it the PC version of Genesis you meant? ;)
  59. queenynci New Member

    If by PC you mean Phil Collins, Delphine, yes -thats' my era.
    Discussing Genesis can be a bit like talking about Dr Who- everyones got their own favourite!

    Now there's a thread!
