I could go on and on, before I even turned my attention to the post punk explosion (which I consider the most fertile period that rock has ever experienced) and new wave. While the Sex Pistols and their ilk may not have been pushing the boundaries incredibly, what followed certainly did.
Having not listened to any of the albums you've mentioned, I'll have to take your word for it with regard to their originality. But even if I wasn't a hopeless sixties nerd I'd highly doubt that the post-punk period could come close to matching the late 60s in terms of fertility in rock.

I do not have time for the musical elitism race, and neither should any of you. I swear, this thread is almost as bad as the Hooknose-Diaperhead Conflict one in both racism and factual inaccuracies.

You know, I find it strange to say this, but... I agree with TM.

There are so many better things for us to get angry at each other about! Why must we drag musical tastes into it?

EDIT: Right... literally speaking, I don't agree with TM. Well, I don't agree with his wording...

Well, what constitutes the "better things" to argue about is quite subjective, isn't it? Certainly I can understand the viewpoint that a thread based around differences in musical tastes is pure triviality. Hell, for most of my life I held much the same view of such fluff.

But when life becomes unliveable one's priorities must change, and so they did for me. I got tired of feeling helpless and powerless in many aspects of life, so I did the only thing I felt I could do- cut them right out of my list of priorities. For a while there at the end of the Spring semester, I simply stopped caring about a whole host of things: grades, politics, girls, animal rights, world news, family, and quite a bit more.

What did I still care about? Pretty much only those things which I felt competent enough to manage: music, of course, but also smokin' the stuff, keeping up close friendships, eating, sleeping, and little else, really.

Things aren't quite so extreme nowadays; I care about grades again, to good effect, and I'm slightly less apathetic about the other stuff as well. But music is still a principle interest in my life, and as such I just can't help my intensity on the subject.

Anyone else like Wolfmother? I don't mind Metallica, but the only songs I've heard are off the Saint Anger album and The Memory Remains.

Wolfmother are great. I seen them in concert the other year, in Melbourne, before they were big.

EDIT: I'm listening to them now, coincidentally.

Okay people, what's your favorite band name? I've seen really odd ones, thought my personal favorite is the Super Furry Animals.

Wolfmother are overrated, in my book. Still, I've never seen them live, so I may be speaking out of ignorance.

I don't have a top ten, but I'll listen to:

Anything by Yello except To The Sea;
Anything by Led Zeppeling except Black Dog;
Bizet's Carmen Suite;
Almost anything that's on the radio stations I like, which includes classical, 70s rock and 80s rock.

For me, it's got to be the Soft Machine. Simple, but wonderfully evocative.

My favorite was one suggested by Dave Barry... Crab Shrapnel.

Come to think of it, most of his suggestions are pretty good.

The Arrogant Worms top that list for me. A great band, once you consider their incredibly deep lyrics.

My country's bigger than most
And if asked I boast
'Cause I'm really proud
So I shout it loud
Though our numbers are few
We will welcome you
Although we don't have history
Gold medal winning teams
Heroes or prisoners
World famous volcanoes
Still what we've got's glorious...

'Cause we've got
Rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And water.

All right, everyone!

We've got
Rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And water.

I like Rage Against The Machine, but I'm annoyed that Zack left and they had chanegd themselves into Audioslave. Audioslave isn't as good as it's RATM glory days.

Sonata Arctica. In italian, would be more logic Sonata Artica. In fact, when someone ask me what is my favourite band and I say "Sonata Arctica" everyone reply "You mean Artica?".

I've heard a bit of KMFDM and a bit of Ministry. About average, IMO.
