floyd (i like syd, though)

torche, sunn 0))),
"grunge" except for screaming trees and afghan whigs if you want to consider them that...

velvet underground
talking heads
U2
Tom Petty
Eagles
the smiths
siouxsie and the banshees

why so? i didn't listen to it until almost before Year Zero. 'Only' was stuck in my head because of the radio play. so i decided to give NIN another shot. With Teeth didn't suck, so i was on board for Year Zero.

I'm kinda looking forward to seeing them.

And there's a plethora of other posts where you defend that shitty band.

In 50 years, Radiohead will be in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, they will be lauded as a classic fans, and their music will turn non-believers (such as myself) into believers.

And the members of Enter Shitkari will be grilling burgers and fries at minimum wage.

Given your track record I don't think it'd be out of the question for you to have done that. Then again, I never said you went to Coachella ONLY to see Enter Shitkari, but seeing how much time, effort and energy you've put into defending that shitty band while lambasting better bands like Radiohead... Well, it just lends credibility to the idea that you did drive halfway across the country to make sure your pet band had at least ONE fan watching them during Prince.

Again, you sure spend a lot of time talking to me. Also, you've dedicated your sig to me, which is sweet, but, as much as you want me to, I won't go gay for you. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be out of the question to assume that your every thought hinges on what I have to say... You're just like a little string puppet, ya know?

Finally, another band to the list: Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

EDIT: Stinkbutt, even though our country won't accept it, Soccer rules. Hockey's just awful. Also, I used the notion of getting into the RnR HoF as an indicator of what kind of impact Radiohead will have on music history, not whether or not that honor actually has merit.
