What is everyone's favourite band?

My top five are:

#1 - Led Zeppelin
#2 - The Pixies
#3 - The Beatles*
#4 - Arctic Monkeys (some of you lucky basterds in Britain may have seen them D:<)
#5 - Oasis

Some others are Soundgarden, Prodigy, Killing Joke and Blur, and it would be interesting to know who other people like.

*From here I don't know what order they're in, they might not be in top five...

John Bonham, best drummer in the world (Led Zeppelin). :D

    I think categorising music at all is stupid - unless the band originally set out to create a particular type of music, such as really low distorted guitar and screaming, or death metal.
    Bands like Led Zeppelin set out to creat not something to fit a category, but whatever came into their head that they thought was good. It was later categorised into heavy metal. The same goes for bands like Pink Floyd ("prog rock"), and many others.

    I think categorising on such a broad scale probably isn't good, there must be some form of "alternative electronica/industrial" that you don't like.

    SWITHFOOT. ABSOLUTELY, SWITCHFOOT. Ever heard the songs "Meant to Live" or "Dare You to Move"? Those're Switchfoot's most well-known songs, and most of their other stuff is just as awesome. Indisputably the best band I've ever listened to, both for their sound and their lyrics.
