Top 20 Bands?

What are your top 20 bands and artists? This is what mine is at the moment (although it may change tomorrow, but this is what it roughly is):-

1 U2
2 Coldplay
3 Athlete
4 Oasis
5 The Killers
6 Stereophonics
7 R.E.M.
8 Kaiser Chiefs
9 Feeder
10 The Cure
11 Smashing Pumpkins
12 Blur
13 Radiohead
14 Long-View
15 Bloc Party
16 Pink Floyd
17 The Stone Roses
18 Led Zeppelin
19 Travis
20 Red Hot Chili Peppers

Honourable Mentions...

Hard-Fi and Editors seem fantastic, but I've not heard enough by them to make a judgement...

Other bands I enjoy are Supergrass, Tears For Fears, Simple Minds, Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, The Verve, Shed Seven, and Ben Folds Five...

5. Kate Bush
6. Steely Dan
7. Bjork
7. Elvis Costello
9. The White Stripes
10. The Polyphonic Spree
10. Prince
10. Concrete Blonde
10. St Etienne
