I know there's been a few of these before, but I thought I'd start my own. Anyway, what are everyone's favortie bands? Here are my top 5.
1.No Use For A Name (NUFAN)
2. Millencolin (I'm pretty sure the lead singer of this one is gay, even if he's not out.)
3. Less Than Jake (from my hometown, Gainesville)
4. Greenday (pre-american idiot)
5. Linkin park (for my more hardcore side...)

First of all, to Shenlong -

First of all, to Shenlong - don't be obnoxious. :P What could you possibly be hoping to accomplish by noting that you're a "true fan" of a band when someone else doesn't like one of their albums? Just because a person doesn't like every album by a band doesn't mean they are any less of a fan - they're a perfectly good fan of whatever the hell they like.

Instead of trying to put someone else down because they're not too hot on the newer music from a band, why not try celebrating the fact that hey, you both like their other albums? Nothing against you personally, but really, it's just not a very nice thing to say. :P

Anyways, to answer the original question, it changes a lot, but some bands/artists that seem to stick with me over time...
(in no particular order)
Ben Folds
Vienna Teng
Nine Inch Nails
Sufjan Stevens

Never be afraid to stand up for whats right. If you lose your values, you've lost yourself, so dont let someone change you into someone you arnt. Don't be afraid of the punishment, Rejoyce in the freedom that let to it.

Hey.... STFU n00b. Srsly, get over yourself. I didn't mean it as a putdown, I'm just a dick, so unless you actually want to be effective and say it to me in person, back off. You're prolly the biggest breeder here.

Bands? No thanks. I'll stick with my loverly showtunes. Haha.

But seriously though, I love showtunes. (I believe I just stated this on another thread, a minute or two ago but... whatever.) Other than showtunes however, I s'pose Switchfoot is cool by me. And one singular CD by R.E.M. (Which happens to be "Eponymous"...) So ja...
