    Default List your top 5 favorite bands/artists

    I know this has kind of been touched on in the past but i didnt want to bump a old thread and I was just curious as to what kind of music people on here listen to. I myself love music, a great passion of mine, also love the music discussions, they always seem to make interesting conversation.

    That being said, everyone feel free to list your top 5 favorite bands/artists (in order) of all time, and we'll see what we come up with.

    Mine:

    1. Metallica
    2. Led Zeppelin
    3. Slayer
    4. Pantera
    5. Guns N' Roses

    I guess I'm a rocker, what can i say!

    Atreyu, Skillet, Thousand Foot Krutch, Muse, Paramore, Saosin (I had to add the sixth.. lol)

    Yes, I like Paramore. Got a problem with that?


    Since someone earlier than me in the thread likes Taylor Swift, I guess that means I'm off the hook for liking Paramore...

    Man, just five? I'll just put some of my faves, in no order, and it'll probably be more than five...but def not the complete list.

    Aerosmith
    Stevie Ray Vaughan (best guitarist ever, don't even argue)
    The Doors
    Shinedown (seen these guys live like 3 times, awesome!)
    Crossfade
    Audioslave
    The Beatles
    Blue October
    Creed
    Death Cab for Cutie (when I'm feeling mellow)
    Linkin Park
    Paramore (I'm with you m16 )
    Queen
    The Rolling Stones
    30 Seconds to Mars
    Muse

    Yeah, definitely a rock/alternative/some indie fan. I'll go with almost any rock though. Some old, some new, some hard, some soft. If it's rock, I'm game. Except Van Halen. And Jet. (Sorry Aussie friends). For some reason, I just don't feel them. And NO NO NO NO NO NO COUNTRY!!!!

    Pink Floyd
    AC/DC (the classic stuff not the newer junk)

    Five bands is not nearly enough & we seem to have a lot of classic rock fans on CPF.

    As I understand it (from an old post I dimly recall) there must be a good and sufficient reason. I wonder if embarrassment is sufficient.
