    It's simple: just post the 10 artists which are the most present in your music library. You might have some surprises while checking it out :)

    Here's mine (I'm not including anything LP-related) :

    1. Depeche Mode - 142 songs
    2. Deftones - 134
    3. Cypress Hill - 131
    4. U2 - 109
    5. Nine Inch Nails - 94
    6. The Who - 84
    7. Limp Bizkit - 76 (ahah):sweating:
    8. Metallica - 76
    9. The Beatles - 71
    10. Anthrax - 70

    Basically, I woudn't consider U2 or Depeche Mode as my favorite bands, but those had huge discographies, and I was curious to go through it. Same goes for Metallica and Anthrax, when I went through a trash-metal phase. And about the Limp Bizkit case...well, I like them, but I was really surprised to see I had that much of their stuff

    I'm not sure which bands I have the most songs for, but the most important/influential artists I have are these:

    1. Linkin Park
    2. Arcade Fire
    3. The Books
    4. Death Cab for Cutie
    5. The Postal Service
    6. Nine Inch Nails
    7. The Beatles
    8. Grouplove
    9. Radiohead
    10. Massive Attack

    Each of those bands had a big influence on my musical taste, even if they aren't still my favorite bands.

    Wow, it's been a while since the last time I saw their name on a music forum... They were actually one of the first bands I listened to, along with LP, Slipknot, and some others :)

    Yeah.. That was troll post..

    Real Top 10 would be:

    Nirvana (79)
    Linkin Park (69)
    Slipknot (52)
    Green Day (43)
    Korn (43)
    311 (36)
    Deftones (35)
    Metallica (34)
    Stone Sour (33)
    Mastodon (32)

    Awfully coincidental how that looks a lot like my list of favorite bands. And how some of it is more inflated by bands that have just had longer careers.

    Lol I figured that out while seeing the other names in the list...But even then, I really liked Lordi back in the days :sweating:

    Now, I can't say I dislike them, but I just haven't listened to them for about 5 or 6 years.

    What. The. Hell. Are those how many times you've listened to some band or how many songs you have by some artist?

    For me:

    1. Linkin Park
    2. Eminem
    3. Red Hot Chili Peppers
    4. Coldplay
    5. Skrillex
    6. Fort Minor

    That's it, I don't have much music downloaded... I listen to everything on YT.
