I thought this would be kind of interesting. I was wondering what would Cubed3's favorite band be as a whole. Basically, choose your top 5 favorite bands (that you think C3 will like preferably, but you can pick some weird obscure band from Botswana if you really want to).

Your top picked band will get 5 points, and your last picked band will get 1 point (and the ones in between get their respective points).

I thought up a list of bands that I've heard on C3 a few times or some that I just think several members would like (hopefully in alphabetical order). This is just a list to sort of bring some bands to the front of your mind, and you're not at all limited to this selection.

AC/DC
The Beatles
Billy Squier
Black Sabbath
Blue Oyster Cult
Boards of Canada
Bob Dylan
Bon Jovi
Johnny Cash
Cat Power
Eric Clapton
Cream
Deep Purple
The Doors
Dragonforce
Electric Light Orchestra
The Flaming Lips
Iron Maiden
Jefferson Airplane
Jimi Hendrix
Led Zeppelin
Kamelot
The Mars Volta
Muse
Pink Floyd
Oasis
Queen
Radiohead
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Rush
Squarepusher
Sweet
System of a Down
Thin Lizzy
Trans Siberian Orchestra
Venetian Snares
The Who
The Yardbirds


My vote:
Blue Oyster Cult
Dragonforce
Jefferson Airplane
Black Sabbath
Thin Lizzy

Gosh, it's really hard to pick just five. You're turn Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

You seem to have got an awful lot of solo artists into that list of bands.. Smilie

Well, I'm not one to like specific bands, but if I were to pick my top 5, I would have to say:

Linkin Park (don't judge me!)
Breaking Benjamin
Eve 6
Disturbed
Terrorfakt

Proud United State-ian

1: Anal Cunt
2: Pink Floyd
3: Steely Dan
4: 10,000 Maniacs
5: Oasis

1.Richard Ashcroft/Verve
2.Coldplay
3.Oasis
4.Johnny Cash
5.Damien Rice


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

Dragonforce
System of a Down
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Pink Floyd
Black Sabbath

No particular order...

Jimi Hendrix
Led Zeppelin
MUSE
OASIS
RHCP.

Muse
Alun Tan Lan
Snow Patrol
Dog Fashion Disco

I think what I'll do is after a few days, get all of the bands with more than 3 points into a list and have a final vote from that (I think I might raise how many points are needed to make the list instead of 3. I'll see).

So now, this just mainly to get bands together for the final list I guess. I foresee this becoming complicated. And it's in my lovely hands to sort out. This'll be fun Smilie

I added Cat Power to the list just so others would remember her and maybe vote her. You oughta thank me/praise me/give me a star.

You think you've got problems.
What are you supposed to do if you are a manically depressed robot?
No don't even bother to answer that.
It just gives me a headache trying to think down to your level.

Why is no-one voting for bands that aren't hugely famous? You are all musically-challenged Smilie

1. The Flaming Lips
2. Super Furry Animals
3. The Mountain Goats
4. Neutral Milk Hotel
5. Sparklehorse

5 was a toss up between quite a few.

This is really hard if you're a jazz person because bands aren't nearly as static.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Who are you to say what we can like? There are a lot of popular bands/artists that are actually musically talent y'know.

No wink can save you Smilie
