    British bands:
    1. Depeche Mode (I love all their albums, except for the first 2!)
    2. The Smiths (perfection)
    3. The Cure (no, I'm not a goth, but I love anything dark and scary)
    4. Queen (poor Freddie! I honestly miss you!)
    5. The Beatles (I like fluffy - puffy stuff sometimes)
    6. Siouxsie and The Banshees (here comes my goth side again!)
    7. Radiohead (lovely band)
    8. Muse (Supermassive Black Hole rocks!)
    9. Joy Division (I simply love Ian's voice)
    10. The Clash (London Calling, Moz likes this song!)

    American Bands
    1.The Ramones (for sure the best!)
    2. Nirvana (simply grunge)
    3. R.E.M. (is there any person who can hate Michael Stipe? It's impossible!)
    4. Red Hot Chilli Peppers (I simply like them!)
    5. Green Day (punk rock always drives me mad)
    6. The Doors (Jim Morrisson, I miss you too!)
    7. Marilyn Manson (my love-for-freaky-bands comes out with them!!!)
    8. Nine Inch Nails (I loved them from the 1st time I just saw their name)
    9. Metallica (I'm not very much into hard rock and heavy metal, but I like them a lot. Black Album=masterpiece)
    10. Bon Jovi (last, but still one of my faves!)
    That's all. It took me a lot of time to see the American bands, because I more tend to British music. No offence to the American bands, I just love the British music...:D

    Yeah, same, I'm not into much metal but Metallica are great. It's good to listen to a metal band where the singer is ACTUALLY singing as opposed to shrieking down the mike.:p But yeah, they were the best band at Leeds festival, better than RATM and the Manics, and that's saying something as those are two of my favourite bands ever, although they were both really amazing too. A massive screen, pyrotechnics and this:

    And yeah, The Black Album is pretty immense.

    I totally agree with you.
    Black Album is one of my 10 top favourite albums ever. I had been to one of their concerts in Greece, particularly in the Rockwave Festival, and there was Enter Sandman (one of my 5 most fave songs ever!) live, it was better than the album version! I was lucky to be able to record it, and it sounds great!!!:guitar::guitar:
    Metallica is most well-known than RATM and The Manics, I suppose that's what you actually mean:D
    At the moment I'm thinking about something a bit off-topic. I think that if Moz would co-operate with Depeche Mode, it would be perfection! I mean, Dave Gahan is my second fave singer (after we all know who!), and I'd love to hear these two beautiful voices together!!!:D DM with Moz. That's a dream...:o
