Linkin Park
2System of a Down
3Breaking Benjamin

Hell I love Linkin Park but Breaking Benjamin definitely tops System of a down and Linkin Park hands down!

They're the only band that I've found that I like every single one of their songs and I never get tired of listening to them.

great vocals, perfect lyrics, related to every once life

6Tool

Heavy or metal a little of each, not easily defined but definitely one of the all time best alternative and some of there song will remain classic through out time

Hows is linkin park before this? This is probably my favorite band, their songs are just

Despite what some people (especially my fellow metalheads) always say about a band like Tool, I just know that I really like their first 2-3 albums quite a lot. Of course, not every song is cool (they have their sucky tunes, too ;)), but Tool is a very worthy listen for rock-metal fans, generally.
