For nearly ten years, Pink Floyd has been my favorite band, and I suspect that they will always retain that distinction.

1) The Beatles
2) U2
3) The Velvet Underground
4) Radiohead
5) Super Furry Animals
6) Talking Heads

And I don't really feel like parsing out the rest of it.
No LC! love from you?

U2 are my favorite band in the WHOLE WORLD ... when they tour. And then I forget about them until the next tour/record. I almost never listen to U2 except around a new record and new tour. I have not listened to a single U2 record except for NLOTH since the last tour.

By contrast, I have listened to something by Radiohead probably every week for many years and never get tired of them.

I second that emotion. Irvine, you better be on the hunt for some GA tickets for Chicago 1. The whole gang's going to be there.

1. U2
2. The Beatles
3. Coldplay
4. The Rolling Stones
5. Led Zeppelin
6. The Who
7. The Doors
8. The Arcade Fire
9. Nirvana
10. The White Stripes

That's probably how my top ten bands look right now, although R.E.M, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Oasis, RHCP, and the Smashing Pumpkins, are probably tied at some spots too. And there's other bands, I love (i.e. Weezer, No Doubt, Keane, Snow Patrol, Green Day, etc), but not at the same level right now. As for solo artists

1. Madonna
2. Bob Dylan
3. Bruce Springsteen
4. Elton John
5. Michael Jackson
6. Prince
7. Johnny Cash
8. Patti Smith
9. Tori Amos
10. John Mayer

Ben Harper, Alanis Morissette, Billy Joel, Sarah McLachlan, Amy Winehouse, Beck, Common, Fiona Apple, Feist, Eminem, Kanye, Jewel, and more will always be among my favorites. I just listen to too much music.

2. The Nels Cline Singers
3. Sonic Youth
4. Carla Bozulich
5. U2
6. Andrew Bird

they're my favourite, but they're facing more and more challenges as i listen to more music.

in fact, over the last three months or so the only u2 i've listened to is no line on the horizon, whereas i'm giving stuff like split enz, crowded house, depeche mode etc much more varied listening.

In this section of the forum, I doubt anyone would care.
