I searched but didn't see this thread yet.
My favorite of all time is Elliott Smith, simply brilliant guy who went much too young. Jeff Buckley, another one who left us before he really began. I like classical alot and right now I'm having a hard time listening to anything other than Vivaldi or Handel's Water Music. Oh yeah I like Disturbed too. If anyones interested I can post a link to some samples and live recordings of Elliott Smith. So what do you all listen to?

Nice, Its cool to see someone so young interested in the greats. Im used to everyone under 25 I know liking Hip Hop or R&B or whatever you wanna call it these days. Now Dre and Ice Cube back in the day....thats another story.

My favorite band has to be Static-X, they're really good.
But I like old country a lot, and oldies. Nothing better than sitting on the porch, drinking lemonaide during the summer while listening to Credence Clearwater Revival, and reading some good hard core sci-fi.
I know, I'm 21 but I really enjoy music my parents would have been listening to when they were young.
But my g/f loves Hip-Hop and alternative music. So I get to listen to a good share of Eminem and Nickelback...and I have to say I appreciate them more now than before I met her.

I love Progressive Rock. Dream Theater (probably collectively the most talented group of musicians in a band right now - all went to either Berklee College of Music, or Juillard) are my favourite band.

Others in no order (not just Prog Rock/Metal bands here):

Sonata Arctica
Metallica
Nightwish
Angra
Shaman
Ayreon
Dreamscape
Blind Guardian
Liquid Tension Experiment
Bozzio Levin Stevens
Extreme
Steve Vai
Joe Satriani
Opeth
some Devin Townsend
Pain of Salvation
Spock's Beard
Neil Morse
Testimony
OSI
Transatlantic
Frameshift


There's atleast 3 times more bands that I listen to, but I'm not gonna name 'em all!!
