    1. Pink Floyd
    2. Tool
    3. Led Zeppelin
    4. Radiohead
    5. Metallica

    Favorite Albums:
    It's hard to name just 5, especially since I could name 5 Floyd albums alone that I think are better than any albums ever made(Meddle, DSOTM, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and the Wall). So I will restrict each band from only having one album on my list.

    1. The Wall, Pink Floyd
    2. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The Smashing Pumpkins
    3. Lateralus, Tool
    4. OK Computer, Radiohead
    5. Master of Puppets, Metallica

    Favorite Artists:

    1. Alice In Chains (most people think they are a one trick pony about heroin, but they are quite a diverse band)
    2. Pink Floyd (typical stoner choice, but I liked them before I started to smoke weed)
    3. Primus (these guys kick ass on many different levels)
    4. old Metallica (anything before the black album, although I like a couple songs off that album)
    5. 311 (twas my first concert. An excellent, underrated band that's very original)

    Favorite Albums:

    1. Alice In Chains - Dirt (best album of the 90's, IMO)
    2. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (I could listen to Shine On etc. all day)
    3. 311 - Music (by far their best album)
    4. Metallica - And Justice For All (it's a shame what these guys have turned into)
    5. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood-Sugar-Sex-Magick (like Metallica, it's a shame what these guys have turned into)

    Very eclectic. From The Beatles to Insane Clown Posse. A few things I've noticed about "ICP":
    - they're not insane
    - they're not clowns
    - 2 people does not equal a posse
    - they were recently voted the worst musical act of all time.

    never said it was a good list. but those are the bands i'm into now.

    thats part of the reason it like "icp". it is one of the best marketing schemes i ever witnessed in music.
