Right now I'd have to say... Abney Park, with The Wrong Way being my favorite song of theirs.  They're the only band I've heard yet that I would actually call SteamPunk.

It would have to either be Opeth or anything by Devin Townsend.

Do you like Muse?  I think Muse is this generation's version of Queen.

I've been a late convert to muse but have been digging them. They are very technical but not rigid like a soloist.

This has been stuck in my head for to damn long now

Right now:
Eleven Fingered Charlie - "Pick You Up"

I'm hoping to see these guys in a few weeks.

I was not aware of them. I will check them out.

You've almost certainly heard some of their stuff on TV, radio, etc.  If you watched that remake of "V" last year, they used a hit Muse song in their promos for the show.  (Hey, it's not the band's fault that TV show SUCKED!!!)  The song they used sounds like it came straight off of the Flash Gordon soundtrack.

Lately I've been listening to The Cramps a good bit. Gotta love the rockabilly/voodoo/punk/whatever-the-hell-it-is sound they have.

Favorite of all time - Stiff Little Fingers, followed closely by The Jam.

Nice choices.

In that Genre I like Deadbolt. Can't beat the song "Billy's Dead" genius lyrics!

I've been revisiting Laibach. I don't exactly like most of what they do, but I can't remain indifferent either. For me, art is all about suggesting new perspectives, and that they certainly do.

Here's the song I was referring to (I'm confident you'll recognized it.)  Not necessarily their best song, but one of their more popular.  (Can't you totally picture it being in a Flash Gordon reboot?)

Cool.  I heard a couple of their songs a while ago and forgot their name right away.  It's been bugging me.

Right now the band I have gained an enormous appreciation for is Radiohead. Although I was already fond of Ok Computer, I gave Kid A and their recent album, 'In Rainbows' a listen. I've fallen in love with what they do now, I appreciate them as artists who push the envelope.

I like Radiohead, but can't listen to it any more.
Something changed and it wasn't them.
