    I'd say I've got a top 4 which goes like this (no particular order)

    Linkin Park
    Deftones
    Thrice
    Nine Inch Nails

    Then, there are a lot of others, but I feel like it would be unfair to put some of them before others as I like most of the artists I listen to quite equally. What I want to listen to simply depends on what I'm in the mood for.

    Some serious contenders: Massive Attack, Amon Tobin, Aphex Twin, Portishead, Ministry, Machine Head, The Who, Radiohead, Notorious BIG, Lupe Fiasco

    That's how I am after my top 6 bands. It also matters what mood I am in, too.

    2. Andre 3000

    Favorite artists:
    1. Ed Sheeran
    2. Avril Lavigne
    3. Justin Timberlake

    Mix the last 3 up any way you want. Currently it's the opposite of how it's written.

    I listen to music on an obsessive level. I'd list favorite songs like a few have but that changes weekly.

    Someone please tell me why this LP community seems to be so obsessed with Imagine Dragons?
    I am not even saying they are bad - they are alright - but they are literally one of the most generic sounding rock/pop bands out today. They have a few standout tracks like "Radioactive"(before it got overplayed) and "Demons"
    but overall IMO nothing special.

    These are the Bands/Artists that will always be on my favorite list:

    Protest The Hero
    Rise Against
    Linkin Park
    Enter Shikari
    City And Colour
    Karnivool
    Tool
    Aesop Rock
    Rage Against the Machine

    Runner ups: Nine Inch Nails, Red Hot Chili Peppers, All time Low, Dream Theater, A Perfect Circle, System Of a Down, My Chemical Romance, The Beatles, Lost Prophets, Michael Jackson, Celldweller, Death Grisp, Nephew, L.O.C, William Fitzsimmons, Twin Atlantic and Seventh Wonder.

    No order:

    Iron & Wine
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Mumford & Sons
    Mayday Parade
    Queen
    Simon & Garfunkel
    Vampire Weekend
    Billy Joel
    The Avett Brothers
    King Charles
    Fun

    Man, it took forever to whittle this down to 11. I can't go one more :lol:

    Edit: I can't believe I forgot The Antlers. They're definitely high up there.

    I really like your list, especially the inclusion of City of Colour and Rise Against.

    And to answer your questions, people just have different tatstes. I dont think they are generic by all means. I started following them before their album came out, and Ive always liked what Ive heard. And they havent changed their sound to become mainstream either. Yeah, some people might be annoyed that they get overplayed but so did LP at one point. *takes trip back to 2002*

    I personally like the music they make and love the singer and his voice. They will forever be one of my favorite bands, and if their second cd is as good as their first, they could pass LP for me
