My local radio station WXRT (a good one, by the way) is asking its listeners to choose their 10 favorite bands from a list. When I went through the list, I kept thinking of hobbitgrrl and what you'd choose - *G*. I'd say they have at least half of your favorite bands listed. Which is a bit ironic, because I rarely hear them! But you might want to go there and show your support: http://www.dat-e-baseonline.com/front/deb.asp?Action=LogIn. And perhaps others might be interested.
In fact - why don't you tell me your 10 favorite bands? Just specify whether it's off of the list or from all possible choices.
Here's mine (under a cut so as not to influence you!):
This is from WXRT's list, and it's actually 11:
If they were on the list, I'd add:
30 Seconds to Mars
And, once again, I badly need to create a music-oriented icon!
