I would have put Tom Waits and Johnny Cash very high on my list, but they're not bands.

If I were to list my 10 favorite musical acts, excluding classical composers, it might go

MILES DAVIS
TOM WAITS
THE BEATLES
LOUIS ARMSTRONG
JOHNNY CASH
BOB DYLAN
BILL MONROE & THE BLUEGRASS BOYS
ANDREW BIRD
LIGHTNIN' HOPKINS
RAY BARETTO

Top 5 are set in stone, I could swap out many names in the bottom 5.

Yeah, I thought about that. My rationale was that Elvis Costello is associated with The Attractions when it comes to the most definitive part of his career, just as Johnny Cash is closely associated with The Tennessee Two/Three when it comes to his more seminal work. Andy Irvine, however, has no business in my list now that I think of it. But yes, I was rationalizing a bit.

Hm, strictly speaking in terms of bands, I guess this is my list:

The Church
The Beach Boys
Radiohead
The Beatles
XTC
Genesis (I like Gabriel and Collins eras)
The Flaming Lips
Talk Talk
Gentle Giant
Popol Vuh

I'd like to put King Crimson or Talking Heads on my list but I feel like I haven't listened to enough of their work.  Oh, and I really like Tears for Fears, Yes, Magma, Pink Floyd, and many others.

Then I have an entirely new list.  Well, not really.

I would take off a couple and add David Bowie, Chuck Berry and "Weird Al".  But on the whole, I like my list.

Okay, let me get my head together...........
1. Swans
2. Killing Joke
3. Carcass
4. Skinny Puppy
5. Controlled Bleeding
6. Pink Floyd
7. Scorn
8. Talk Talk
9. The Obsessed
10. Jesu

I had "early Iron Maiden" listed but replaced it with Talk Talk. Maybe this thread should read "50 favorite bands" - that'd be a lot easier.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
