my list:

u2 - Though I can go months on end without listening to them, when I do it's always this rush of excitement and discovery. It's like "ohhhhh, so this is why they're my favorite band", cause honestly I always forget how amazing they are thanks to overexposure to crap like 'vertigo'.

bjork - Beautiful voice, beautiful melody, beautiful pop music. a true artist.

sigur ros - an ethereal & organic sound, it takes me somewhere else.

radiohead - brilliant. kid a is one of the best records ever

springsteen - to be so famous it's a shame people don't really know his music or how versatile he is.. and disregard him as some wave-toting redneck [born in the usa] or even worse an overproduced cheesy 80s pop star [dancing in the dark]. but his dark lyrics paint beautiful & tragic poignant, cinematic stories of everyday people and their hopes, dreams, victories and failures.

dylan - brilliant. mysterious. changed music as we know it. not enough words to describe his mad genius, inventor of his own crazy language and a true american poet.

bright eyes/ryan adams - can't wait to see what they're up to next. they never cease to amaze me.

pink floyd - certainly interesting & simply beautiful dreamy landscapes, even in their darkest hours.

wilco - i don't know what it is, but i can never stop listening to them.

Actually, I wish this thread had been entitled GENIUS bands/musicians, because that's more interesting than 'interesting'

With this in mind,

Jeff Buckley
Patti Smith
Kate Bush

would definately top my list (so many more, but that's what springs to mind first!!!)

Seriously, while most people's lists feature stuff that's pretty good to listen to enjoyably, are they interesting? Not really (although Salome's mentions of Zappa and Beefheart come close).

But seriously, were U2 ever as interesting as this?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayhem_%28band%29

I rest my case.

I can't tell if the above post is suppsoed to be sarcastic or not...

in my defense, I can say the artists I listed are interesting to me..they're artists whose career I follow because I never know what they're gonna do next and I can't wait to find out.

Next case.

Well, Mayhem's career certainly was interesting - and disturbing - but for my list, I'm thinking more along the lines of musically interesting. In no particular order except #1-2 and possibly #3:

1. Split Enz: these guys own and win this thread in so many ways. Definitely one of the quirkiest and most original bands to ever play. And their live shows are some of the most truly interesting and entertaining out there. How do you beat spoon solos?

2. The Shadows: Hank Marvin beat almost everyone to doing almost anything interesting with the electric guitar.

3. Dream Theater: John Petrucci, guitar, and Mike Portnoy, drums. I don't even need to say anything more. Mike Portnoy is, without question, the single greatest drummer to ever play.

4. Porcupine Tree: Steven Wilson is a musical genius and makes some of the most sonically and thematically interesting music I've ever heard. He's one of the best musicians and producers I've ever heard - and the fact he's entirely self-taught makes it all the more amazing.

5. Spiral Architect: If 'interesting' and 'technically complex' are synonyms to you like they are to me, then Spiral Architect has to be on any list of the most interesting bands. I struggle to think of more technically proficient and complex bands.

6. Cynic: There never has been and never will be an album as great as Focus ever again. That album is the benchmark by which all technical metal and jazz-fusion metal should be measured. Ridiculously original; I was intrigued right from the start.

7. Orphaned Land: Is it death metal? Is it doom metal? Is it Hebrew or Arabic folk music? Is it progressive rock? Whatever it is, it's interesting.

8. Agalloch: Take black metal, atmospheric metal, folk music, progressive rock/metal, mix it all together, and you get Agalloch. These guys paint the strongest, most vivid sonic landscapes I have ever heard in my life. Completely captivating and interesting music.

9. Joy Division: No-one has ever successfully been able to replicate the greatness of Joy Division. Truly unique - and therefore interesting - music.

10. Trouble: Soul crushing proto-doom metal ... with Christian themes?! One hell of a big "WTF?" there.

11. Watchtower: Before progressive metal existed, Watchtower was playing progressive metal.

12. Ayreon: The scale and imaginativeness of Arjen Anthony Lucassen's projects is huge. The guy must be just a bit insane, but he's also a genius.

13. Devin Townsend/The Devin Townsend Band: If Arjen Anthony Lucassen is a bit insane, Devin Townsend is a completely loopy man more insane than the entire population of his native Canada's mental asylums put together. Just look up a picture of the man: he looks completely insane. And it shows in his music, complete with its walls of sound, choruses of Devins, and absolute originality.

14. Behold... The Arctopus: They've got an interesting name, if nothing else! Crazily intricate instrumentals too.

15. Apocalyptica: Heavy metal played with three cellos. How is that NOT interesting?

16. Jakob: These guys interest and intrigue me on a more personal level. They play these gorgeous instrumentals with the goal of evoking their native Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, and as someone who spent a lot of his childhood in the Hawkes Bay, I would like to say that they completely achieve this goal. Very impressive.

17. Passengers: It's U2, only truly musically interesting. The Unforgettable Fire on strange drugs from the future. A hidden gem that should be loved, enjoyed, and savoured by all.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Sigur Ros isn't interesting if you know Mum!

I didn't metion some of my faves like Iron & Wine because he's not interesting... he can make lovely music I enjoy, but c'mon... Genghis Tron is interesting! is grind core with synths! that's something that I find interesting
