    Ween. Seriously it's Morrissey/The Smiths, with Ween just on their tail and everyone else doesn't even come close :p

    It should be Against Me! What an excellent band! Are you upset because they are now opening for the Foo Fighters? Did you not like New Wave? Sorry I'm being a nerd because no one on this board ever talks about them :cool:

    Bauhaus

    Once I got over my Prince phase :p, the big three for me growing up were Bauhaus, The Smiths, and The Cure. In terms of all time favorite music Morrissey/The Smiths has now taken first place, Bauhaus is a firm second, and The Cure have dropped off the list completely. I think they've been replaced in the #3 spot by Joy Division..

    ETA: Oooo this is my #666 post, saying that Bauhaus is my 2nd favorite band. How goth!
     
  8. Yesterday and Today, which was a 1966 US-only compilation of tracks that had been pulled from Help, Rubber Soul, and Revolver. All of the Beatles' UK albums through 1966 (except A Hard Day's Night) had 14 songs, while their American counterparts usually had just 11. Capitol, their US label, had done a similar butchering with Beatles VI a year earlier.

    More than you ever wanted to know about it. Maybe that already was!

    Oh my Goth! That was my list from the first half of the '80s. Really, throw in Siouxsie and it's done.

    The Cure lost me sometime around '85, when they got way too twee for me. Those early albums, though, "Boys Don't Cry/Three Imaginary Boys," "Faith," "Seventeen Seconds" and "Pornography" are good enough to keep them in my top ten (maybe even top five) forever. I lost Bauhaus somewhere along the way...

    #2 for me are British Sea Power! In my opinion, they haven't put out a single bad track.

    I used to go goo-goo-ga-ga for Suede and Gene but since they disbanded, I've lost about all interest. I've got all their recordings but I rarely listen to them anymore. I hate to admit it but Radiohead have piqued my interest lately and I used to not really care for them.

    i love 'New Wave', and I think it's stupid that everyone craps on them now. sure, reinventing axl rose was/is classic, and there are a few kinda weak tracks on new wave, but overall, i think it's great, tom's songwriting is still totally there, the music is just a little different.

    what do you want them to do, make the same record 10 times for the rest of their lives? you gotta evolve..

    and as for me, i hate claiming favorite band, the smiths would make the top 10, but the primary contenders for the top spot would be dylan, social distortion, the replacements, bright eyes, bad religion.. those are probably the top five.
