    Now-a-days bands aren't what bands were back in the days. I think bands were more talented during the 60's, 70's, 80's and early 90's. But there are still some good bands today ie. Incubus, SOAD,.....

    Wow, this post has been going on a long time . . . last July . . . is that normal? Anyway; Radiohead is pretty awesome. Nirvana is classic (well, for the 90's anyway). Some bands I respect but don't listen to often are: U2, Pink Floyd, Tool, Beatles, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Halen, Eagles ... you know, all the obvious ones. In their own way, they all deserve the 'best band ever' title, but best is in the eye of the beholder. My favorites for today are Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Nirvana, Depeche Mode, Stone Temple Pilots, REM, (gosh, I always have this feeling like I'm leaving someone out) etc. I'm a song writer myself, and I derive my style from these groups.

    Sorry for the long post, btw.

    The Velvet Underground is amazing.....Ummmmm Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are great live....Radiohead, R.E.M.....So many.

    But I think Pink Floyd are the best ever. All of there albums are classics, that you can just listen threw all the songs, and love them all.

    Cream. They were only together for 3 years, but put out some of the best stuff.

    Underneath the shadows of pink floyd, that is where the gold is. In other words, Progressive rock. Check out King Crimson and Yes. I can't decide which one I like better. Try NIN for a more recent band (even though KC and Yes are still releasing new material every year or so, so technically they are current bands, almost been here for 40 years)

    BAND

    That's a tough one, because a lot of what passes for BANDS are really one talented artist dragging a lot of halfwits along with him or her.

    Plus I've been kicking about the planet for way too many decades and there are most certainly bands out there that I have not heard, or will never hear. And the reality is that the BEST bands will probably never be recorded.

    So to choose among the "bands" that had the luck to be recorded at the peak of their creative genius... well I guess I would have to nominate Pink Floyd (although Sid Barrett and Roger Waters were the primary source of creative genius, IMO).

    It's so hard to choose. We are very freaking lucky to live in an age when we are surrounded by hundreds of fantastically creative musicians.

    Yes. Thank you. I am sick of hearing "music is dead"..."music blows today"...There are many excellent artists out there...you just have to keep your eyes open and dig a little.

    That would have to be The Mammals or Donna the Buffalo, with Barachois as a very close third.
     
  18. like William Shatner's "Has Been"?

    like Frank Zappa? or Weird Al?

    Ohh, I've only heard the Nirvana version, but it makes sense, Bowie has a way with words
