Default Your All Time Favorite Band

Now this is a thread on which your totally honest. What is your all time favorite band, that you hold deep to your heart, you might really like other bands but there is always that one band or artist that you could not live without.

Mine has to be Blink 182, the first album I ever bought was Dude Ranch back in 1998, I have every album, DVD, Book ect.


Your turn :)

Just want to say it's incredibly tough to pick just one. But if you're going to hold a gun to my head, I would have to say...

The Beatles.

After thinking about it for a while, it comes down to two bands:

The Who and Rush.

Other "most favorites" have come and gone over the years, but those two bands have never faded from being a favorite, nor do their albums ever get old, even though I've been listening to both bands since I was 11 or 12.

Way too hard to narrow it down to one group. But...

Minor Threat, Primus, Rancid and Tool come to mind.

That's an interesting choice; you'll be the only one :) I had a couple of albums of his, a jazz album on Blue Note Cantaloupe Island and a fusion one, Imaginary Voyage.

I especially liked Cantaloupe Island with IMO the best version of King Kong, and the title track is superb.
