That is such a broad genre that includes so many sub-genres, I don't even know where to begin.

*sigh* Guess I will go by category? More mainstream stuff, too, I guess.

Grunge:

  • Melvins: essentially the precursor to grunge, the Melvins are pretty great and need to be respected.
  • Alice in Chains: Nirvana get's a lot of credit and credit due where credit is due, but they were not good musicians. They popularized it, sure, but the real talent lied with Alice in Chains; popular AND talented.

Progressive Rock and Alt Metal:

  • TOOL: Maynard just rocks, man, just kills it. A legit genius. Great bass lines too.
  • Deftones: I don't think they're particularly awesome, I Just really like them. One of the few bands I listened to in high school that I listen to now.
  • Chevelle: same reason as with Deftones.

Alt-rock, Post-punk, etc.:

  • The Cranberries. Just a great voice, great lyrics, really awesome stuff that just sucks me in. When you can read/watch/listen something and you just lose awareness of the outside world, that's when you know you found something great.
  • R.E.M. Remember them? Nah y'all probably way too young :P Anyway, really great band, great singer and lyrics and everything.

I think I am just going to stop here for now haha

Well, Judas Priest for one. Hence my username.

This could turn into such a long list, so I think I will just say my favorite band of all time is Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Because greatness is measured by the number of adjectives in your genre. Progressive-avant guard-indie rock-metal.

#1 Will always be the Beatles, but disregarding them I'll split it off by genre.

Metal: Sacramentum, Morbid, Black Sabbath, Gojira, Macabre, and Xasthur are some favorites

Alternative/Indie/Baroque: Any band Jack White has touched, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sparklehorse, TV on the Radio, Radiohead, Tom Waits, Sufjan Stevens, The Antlers, Jason Molina

Punk: RDP, Guerilla Puebelle, Days n Daze, The Taxpayers, Screeching Weasel, AJJ

Classic Rock: Phil Ochs, Neil Young, The Beatles and their solo work, Leonard Cohen, Cass Elliot, Fleetwood Mac

The list is nearly endless but those are just a few favorites.
