All time fave is R.E.M I could never, ever get tired of them
also: BareNaked Ladies, Fleetwood Mac, The B-52’s and The Doors are my other favorites. I love them all just about equally, but R.E.M I love just a little bit more.

The Decemberist’s are my all time favorite. Been to 2 of their shows and I’ll be going to a 3rd in June in NY =D. Definitely an acquired taste though – their album titled “The Crane Wife” is probably most likable by the mainstream.

MC Chris – Funny, odd, obscure, “Nerdcore” rap. Worth checking out if you’ve watched adult swim during your teenage years.

The Shins – Indie band, kind of soft/easy listening. Very relaxing.

Artic Monkeys – A UK band, pretty catchy stuff.

Andrew Bird – Another acquired taste. A lot of his music (including the instrumental back-rounds) is all created by him. Not a huge fan, but I must say he’s very creative and talented.

My favorite band is a combo from Liverpool that all the hip kids dig. Call themselves The Beatles. What a funny name! It’s like “beetles”, but with an “A”!

Brakes (or brakesbrakesbrakes as they call themselves now)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Jens Lekman
Leonard Cohen
Manchester Orchestra
Of Montreal
Roots Manuva

@uberbatman Sweet dude! I might even try to get around to seeing him live. I tried to see him once, but by the time I realized he was in my area the tickets were sold out =\.
Have you heard the song IG-88 and is there anyway to buy it without buying the whole album? I checked Itunes and no dice.

MC Lars is also a good “nerdcore” rapper.

@sjmc1989- LOVE him. However, I’m not super stoked on his new band and new sound, Relentless 7. :/ Sounds too trendy and mainstream to me.

- The Doors; Jim Morrison on the cover of the April 1991 edition of the Rolling Stone = Complete stud!
– Queen; because they are simply awesome

Nightwish, I prefer Tarja as the female vocalist but I do appreciate their new stuff too.

i base my favorite band upon the songs that are intertwined in my dreams.

i was raised on them and love them to this day.

i also love Jim Croce.

The Smashing Pumpkins. Quite possibly the greatest band of all time, all thanks to Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlain of course.

Interpol, Whitest boy alive, Friendly Fires

It would have to be Radiohead, their music is just too good to describe.
