Hey, what're your favorite bands? I don't care if they stink to high heavens, still post them. Hey, this is coming from a guy who likes Guns N' Roses, and more than 90% of the public says they aren't worth anything.

And for those more in-depth, who're your favorite singers, drummers, guitarists, and bassists? I personally like Vernon Reid from Living Color as my singer, Neil Purt as my drummer, Joe Satriani as my guitarist, and Les Claypool as my bassist.

Oh god, She is a godess.

And then I like Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Disturbed, Godsmack, Yellowcard, Missy Elliot, Rhianna, Sean Paul, and lots of other people. Plus, I don't mind some country artists, like Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, and other people.

Sufjan Stevens as a singer, Joe Nuñez as a drummer, Justin Chancellor as a bassist, and Slash as a guitarist.

Of course, they're all completely different, so not in the same band.

I see a lot of you like Disturbed. Hmm, they're ok, but I think they do too many re-makes, regardless of how good "Land of Confusion" sounds.

I recently saw Foo Fighters twice; with Weezer (and Hot Hot Heat) and then their acoustic show. Great shows. Love them. I also can't get this song out of my head:

It's a great song to blast in the car first thing in the morning. What's funny is Lil' G-Girl likes this song too. She sings the chorus.

I also really like Muse (see this thread: http://www.comicvine.com/message/my-ears-are-still-ringing/27027/&c=21&21), Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers,...I could keep going.

Favorite Band? Black Sabbath. F*ck anyone who doesn't care for Warpigs. Let's see...Dio, Manowar, a little bit of Rainbow never hurt nobody, JOHNNY CASH especially, Willy Nelson, Fiona Apple, Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Young is allright, Misfits, but moreso Danzig, screw Motly Crue, Deep Purple...Pink Floyd, The Who, The Rolling Stones are allright, John Lennon, and later Beatles stuff are all fine and dandy...

individual musicians? I really can think of two that I really like, and they're both guitar players. Go figure. The first is Jimi Hendrix. The second is Buckethead. And I like Ozzy Osbourne, but really, he kind of doesn't count.
