    Thumbs up Best Bands Of The Past 5 Years

    We've had some great music related polls before but I wanted to get some perspective on everybody's favorite bands that have released NEW cd's in the past 3-5 years (greatest hits don't count).

    My Top Ten CURRENT Bands - not in any particular order...

    James Blunt
    ColdPlay
    U2
    Puddle Of Mudd
    Nickelback
    Ludo
    Flogging Molly
    Bon Jovi
    Foo Fighters
    Linkin Park

    Of those bands, I've seen U2, Puddle Of Mudd, Nickelback and Bon Jovi live in the past couple years and have tickets to see both Ludo and Flogging Molly within the next couple months.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Best Bands Of The Past 5 Years

    Top 10? C'mon, that's like trying to narrow the list of my favorite times a took a breath today, but I'll try.

    Trail of Dead
    Beirut
    Wilco
    Radiohead
    LCD Soundsystem
    Calexico
    The Roots
    Drive-By Truckers
    MF Doom
    Broken Social Scene

    Aw, **** it. This is impossible. I feel like John Cusack in "High Fidelity" trying to form his list of favorite songs.
