I agree with what Mattay said. It's so hard to pick the best band of a generation, especially when you're trying to compare guys like Dave Navarro and Kurt Cobain to guys like Paul McCartney and Roger Waters. It's so hard to even put these guys all on the same level because without McCartney and Waters, you wouldn't even have Navarro and Cobain. And we'll take it a step further - without Elvis Presley and Ella Fitzgerald you probably wouldn't have McCartney and Waters. And so on and so forth.

I can state what music I like to listen to, and what I don't want to hear. But I can't state which is (in my opinion) the greatest band of my generation. For the reasons listed above, of course, but also because I listen to music that spans multiple generations. I like music from all eras and genres (except hardcore gangsta rap, but I don't want to turn this into a rock vs. rap thread, so I'll just say I don't like it). Everything from the Beatles to Marilyn Manson, Conway Twitty to Toby Keith. Rock, (some) rap, country, jazz, bluegrass, classical (nothing more relaxing than some Tchaikovsky or Handel), pop - I like a little of everything.

I just can't name 1 band that is better than everybody else for my generation. I can think of a couple that are up on top - Beatles, Elvis, Floyd, Manson, Metallica, Nirvana, Jane's Addiction.....But you see what I'm getting at. In that short list I've got 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s all covered. Guess it just depends on what mood I'm in at the time.

We're more than capable of answering you, we're just not doing it because you're being a cunt, and it's you specifically we don't care about, we do care about the rest of the forums.
