1. Metallica - Freight Train (or No Leaf Clover.  Whatever you wanna call it).
2. Linkin Park - Faint
3. 3 Doors Down - Kryptonite
4. Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead or Alive
5. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
6. Peter Gabriel - Secret World
7. Five for Fighting - Superman
8. Sum 41 - Hell Song
9. System of a Down - Chop Suey
10.  Matthew Good Band - Weapon

It's hard to pick of favourite bands, because for me, I only like 1 song from many bands, but some of those 1 hit wonders can be my favourite songs. So when I chose here, I couldnt so much as pick my favourite song, but bands that had the most songs that I like.

Hrm...

A lot of what I liked changed. I'm not so much of a "favorite this and favorite that" person anymore. I see it like "there are some songs I really like, and some songs I kind of don't like," so it's very hard to pick out favorites. Sure, I love Chinese rock acts Hang on the Box, Brain Failure, Second Hand Rose, etc. but they've got those moments where you wish they did a better job. Yeah, I'm still into Marley, Zeppelin, and Hendrix, but sometimes their guitar solos are too long, or Marley's love songs just don't hit it with me. Sometimes I revisit my old "favorites," but mostly now I just try to explore and acquire anything different, anything new. One band I've been referring back to constantly is Smashing Pumpkins, cause I can't get over their Siamese Dream album. And yeah, there's a song or two I always skip over (Sweet Sweet and Luna). Music is dynamic. I'd rather have my music "favorites" change over time, 'cause there's always something better out there--you just don't know it.

First off, AC, kill yourself for liking the Limp Bizkit version of Behind Blue Eyes over the clearly superior (i.e. no Fred Durst) original version by The Who.

Secondly, I agree with Tamashii whole-heartedly. But Electric Six tops my list right now.

What-choo' tawkin' abowt, man!? I stand by my Fred-Durst choices, just like how I prefer Metallica's 'Turn The Page' over Bob Seger's.

Okay, I can give you the last one just because Bob Seger sucks ass. However, the same for Bob Seger can be said for Limp Bizkit.

They suck ass.
