    I dont like you guys music much, but when I do listen to it none of my favorite bands have even been mentioned.

    Metalica
    Nirvana
    Green Day
    Rage Against the Machine
    Beastie Boys
    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    I dont listen to rock enough to have 10 favorites. But I'm surprised none of you in here have things like Radiohead, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, or Pearl Jam or Pantera on your lists. At least some of those should be ahead of things like REM or Mudvayne or some of the names I saw mentioned.

    You kids need to simmer down, though. The title says 'favorite' --- not 'best.'

    Hard to say War is an American band, sorta. Eric Burdon was british and was the lead when they were popular. But they gots some great tunes either way you want to account for their nationality.
