Doesn't look like this has really been brought up for quite some time, so here it is:  Whats your top 10 list of bands, in no particular order.  Well, if you want, order them but I find this too hard personally.  Try not to make it a "<insert band here> sucks, blah blah" message, this is about what you like, not what you dont =]

It changes, but here's mine at the moment...

1. John Frusciante - and his side projects (ataxia, namely)
2. Elliott Smith
3. Mars Volta
4. Jeff Buckley
5. Red Hot Chili Peppers - yeah, thats John Frusciante too, but Flea and Chad added into the mix make a pretty awesome team
6. Eric Clapton
7. Led Zeppelin
8. The Velvet Underground
9. Soundgarden - off the strength of Superunknown alone...
10.Stroke 9

It's pretty much guarenteed I'll have at least one album from an artist off that list with me at all times.

What bands are you never without?

Eels
Rage Against the Machine
Deftones
Tom Waits
Modest Mouse
Tool
A Perfect Circle
The Black Keys

I figured this was a thread about Morris Day & the Muthafuckin' Time.

I can't rate them 1-10 as my preferences do tend to shift, but my all-time hall of fame would include Marvin Gaye, Paul Simon, Myshkin, Peter Gabriel, The Afghan Whigs and Wink Martindale help me, if The Shins put out one more great album, I'll add them too.

No particular order here.

Iron Maiden - Rock!   headbang
Radiohead - trippy but cool
Rush - Red Barchetta owns my soul
Beatles - always have loved them
Opeth - complex and difficult
New Pornographers - not deep but still great
Spoon - they'd make my list just for "The Beast and Dragon, Adored"
Metallica - old stuff is best

I'm sure there's others but these are the ones that jump out at me.

Word.  I just got Dirty Sanchez on tasty orange vinyl in the mail this week.

I don't know how the fuck the crappy ass Deftones got in your list, but the rest of it is pretty hard to fault.

Have you listened to VNV's new album (released a week ago)?  A LOT better than Matter + Form.

VNV isn't coming to Portland - that saddens me.  I might have to go to Seattle to see them...

Assemblage 23 should be a good show.  Didn't know they were touring...

I haven't heard it yet, but will have to give it a shot.  They've always been a little too dance-hall'ish for me, so I'm a pretty casual VNV fan (only album I have is Empires).  I've heard they put on an awesome show, however, so I figure it's worth $20.

A23 hasn't officially announced yet, but I've heard quite a few rumors that the western leg of the upcoming tour will be in September/October.  I saw them last time they came through, and it was a fun show.  They don't sound as good live (Shear loses most of that ominous deep sound in his voice when they play live), but they're very animated and have a great time.  Also, they've got a new album coming out later this month.  Can't wait!
