    Which of you guys have a rock band as your favorite band of all time instead of a metal band? I think i do and it is Pink Floyd.

    There's a thin line between rock and metal and sometimes depending on your POV is not even there. BTW Pink Floyd is not just rock is progressive rock so you see, is not as simple as you pointed, not for me at least.

    I don't. It's a metal band...but among my non-metal favs are Led Zeppelin and Steely Dan.

    I use the term "rock" loosely and in general... not any specific genre within Rock... so like i said PINK FLOYD!! :kickass:

    I've always thought so. I also love The Scream, if you don't have that album you should pick it up. That was the first time I heard Corabi...

    Well, Savatage/TSO/JOP is my all time favorite, so I guess Trans-Siberian Orchestra could qualify. Otherwise, Blue Oyster Cult would rank the highest, at #3 on the list.

    Well, VanHalen, Motley Crue and the Scorpions were all commercial metal bands, Kiss and Led Zeppelin(at times) were proto metal, so nothing like going out on a limb people... :heh:

    props to the person who said Steely Dan, definantly no connection to hardrock or metal excluding maybe Reelin in the Years which rocked pretty hard abit on the progressive side. Steely Dan would be one of my choices for favorite non metal bands

    However Savatage usually rates highest on my list when I have to narrow it down and choose so I have to say no, my favorite bands are definantly progressive metal

    Well, probably Van Halen but they're really more metal than not. Some of my largest non-metal collections would be - Dead Can Dance, Siouxsie & the Banshees, VNV Nation...
