Just out of curiosity, what is everyone's favourite band/artist? Don't worry you can have more than one!

Mine... Funeral for a Friend, Finch, The Starting Line, System of a Down, King Prawn

Pumpkins all the way.

Then everything else, with Muse, Incubus, Tool, Jack Johnson, NIN, Floyd, The Beatles etc near the top.

I love all music. Within reason.

Also loving The Cat Empire a lot these since hearing them in Australia (seeing them in 2 weeks here in dear old London town, woo!)
And then there's No Doubt, Sublime, The Vandals + loads of punk, Atmosphere who blew me away at Warped this summer... Symposium and 'A' are my old darlings... in fact don't get me started on fave bands as I just won't shut up!

Has anyone heard of David Pajo? Quoted, extremely rightly, by The Times a few years ago as "The best guitarist in the world you never heard of".

Oh my gosh, pengwino you've been to a Warped Tour? Lucky bugger, I bought the CD while I was in LA Airport, (was gonna buy it in Canada, but didnt) and love it... would love to see those bands live, and you have, luvky thing.

And I just realised I forgot to say The Living End... they're the band that turned me away from pop and let me discover another style of music.. biggrin

Also, i like most of what SC wrote, except metalica who are nasty icky bleughness.

Scissor sisters, keane and snow patrol are my most favourites, with muse and the chillis close behind...
