5. Wilco
6. Pearl Jam
7. The White Stripes
8. Dave Matthews Band
9. Interpol (at least for the moment)
10. Either NIN, Smashing Pumpkins, Beck, or Beastie Boys

Classic Rock

1. Rolling Stones
2. Led Zeppelin
3. The Beatles
4. Pink Floyd
5. Bob Dylan
6. Bruce Springsteen
7. The Who
8. Eric Clapton/Cream
9. CCR
10. Jimi Hendrix
11. The Doors
12. Bob Marley

actually, it's quite believeable. it's the smiths, people like the smiths. i like them, not top 10-wise, but they were a good fucking band. there are people here who like them, just as there are most definetly people who hate your 9 out of your top 10. hell, i probably hate a bunch of your favorite bands, but do you see me thanking everyone that they didn't list ____??

to quote my buddy u2popmofo (a big smiths fan, in fact), music taste is 100% personal preference.

why the hell does every newbie who finds bang and clatter feel the need to tell us (in seperate threads, that's the part that bugs me) their favorite bands? can't you just list them off in the journal option or something?

While I tend to agree with your point about The Smiths, I wonder why such vitriol about favorite bands. One does not get 18,000+ posts (an average of slightly more than 26 posts per day) and nearly 200 threads started on only "important" topics.

If you think others should chill about The Smiths, perhaps you should chill about favorite bands and/or the way others choose to post.


But I like The Cure better than The Smiths, and of course The Church blows them all away, although The The has a great name.

the issue wasn't with the threads i start, but i'm well aware of the fact that i've never started an important thread here. but by the same token i don't start threads everytime i have an altering of my list of top 10 favorite bands.

i don't care who likes what band, and i don't need to "chill" about anything. it's the repetitive nature...can't you just scroll down and find the last thread with similar lists and post them there?

i'm not looking for a fight, if i wanted one of those, i'd go out and get myself into a real one.

Yeah he was a bit harsh with me.......still find it absolutely unbelievable though that some people would rate The Smiths as the best band ever. Obviously there have to be one or two out there that love them but you look on Murmurs site and all the REM fans reckon there the bees knees. Still heres my top 3 -

U2
Jimi Hendrix
Radiohead

and an honourable mention for REM(1992-1999RIP), Prince(1984-1994RIP), Queen, Yes, Boston, Simple Minds & Manic Street Preachers(really like their 96 & 98 albums).
