My alternative is Glenn Miller's big band sound! They knew how to make good music in the 40's! I think my age is showing?

Hah. I voted Linkin Park because they're my favorite. But I like so many bands in those genres it's hard to choose. Basically any band that played at Warped Tour has my vote.

The Ramones - based in part upon catching them live in Matsumoto in 1996 (coincidentally, one year before finally, after 21 years, seeing The Sex Pistols live at the same venue).

Wow, where to start. I don't reall have "favorites" per se, but here is some stuff high up on my list........

Soundgarden, Sonic Youth, Alice in Chains, Nine Inch Nails, Slayer, Emperor, Dimmu Borgir as far as rock and alternative goes.

I just started getting into some punk, I like Bad Religion a lot, as well as The Virus, The Clash, The Misfits, and hardcore such as Agnostic Front and 25 ta Life.

But these are just a few examples.

And hell, if Glenn Miller's band can be considered Alterative, put that on the list too!

Yea, Dark Funeral is pretty good. I have gotten into a lot of Black Metal recently, some of my favorites are Immortal, Graveworm, and Satyricon.

cross-platform, you have good taste... :cool:

I love, love NIN. Sonic Youth too. Well, those that I highlighted in bold I really like.

Also, Pearl Jam, Primus, Jane's Addiction, Dead Kennedys, Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Violent Femmes, The Prodigy, Garbage, etc. etc.

There's just no end...

You forgot the greatest band of all time, Staind! Staind is a band that puts a lot of soul into their music. I haven't heard a song from any other band as good as "Outside." Linkin Park comes close with "Breaking the Habit."

Staind #1

But if I must:

1) Radiohead;
2) Led Zeppelin;
3) Pink Floyd;
4) Nirvana;
5) Aerosmith

I've never been one to have 'favourite' bands as such. I just have a huge group of bands I reaaaally like. And a few of them that come into my head right now are: Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down, The Living End, Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Rage Against the Machine, Eels, Polysics, Amen, Mad Capsule Markets, Smashing Pumpkins, Jimi Hendrix, Incubus...there's a whole heap of others but I'll leave it at that. :bravo:

Linkin Park = my fave band in the world. I'm also a huge fan of Opeth, though they're not as mainstream as LP.

I put greenday, but as far as Alternative goes:

In no real order:
Greenday, SOAD, Sublime, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, The Cure, Dead Kennedys, Metallica, NERD, The Smiths, Joy Division, Korn, Spiderbait, The Living End and the bets ever... REGURGITATOR all rank very highly for me.

Hmmm, Blink182, Nivana, Muse, Jimmy Eat World. I think those are pretty ok. Oh and Linkin Park too.

I could click every band on that list and still not be satisfied. I voted for Green Day, though, since they've been around for so long, yet still going strong (sorry, Metallica. St. Anger was disappointing).

What no Beatles? I'm just kidding. I like Billy Talent and I think Coldplay should be on there for rock/alternative. Some of the bands you've listed I would say, "are mainstream bands." what I mean is they get air play on MTV. There still rally good bands though!

I chose Metallica, but also like Linkin Park, Nirvana, and many others....
One group, which is my all-time favourite is U2 though!!! :balloon:

Duo

I'm not much of a rock fan myself, however, there is this song that I do enjoya lot, blurry from puddle of mudd, so my vote goes to them :-)

Tsunami Bomb!

One of my fave punk rock bands. Love female singers that know how to rock! :p

I'd give a whole list of my favorites, but I doubt that most people have heard of them. O well :)
