Never was really sure is I had a favorite band, until I actually took note of who I consistently listened to over the years. Who I would actually go get the albums for within a week of them being released, wether I heard a song off it or not. Who actually kept me interested enough, with my short attention span, get all the studios albums for. Who managed to make it on the mixed cds, mp3 players, and playlist. Based on this: Linkin Park, they just kind of creeped into my subconscious. I do own at least a song from a lot of the other people mentioned in this discussion though. 2nd would be New Order: to me, Bernard Sumner has one of the best voices.
