Chicago's Greatest Hits 40th anniversary edition. Untill These guys, along with Rush enter the Rock and Roll HOF, it's nothing but a building with some cheap memorabilia.

The "great old bands" are what everybody gets started on at a young age, even to this day. When I was in high school, it was mostly Led Zepplin, Doors, ect. I just got tired of listening to that stuff all the time, so I moved on. I also got tired Nine Inch Nails and Nirvana, believe it or not. I like to hear new stuff, and there is still a lot of good stuff out there.
Some more examples would be Audioslave and Foo Fighters, which have put out some of the best music of the past decade.

You guys should check out Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band.. they fucking rule. It's only 3 people, but they sound like a much bigger band. I saw them open of Clutch (another awesome band) and they were able to really get the crowd going... the washboard player lit it on fire at the end of the show.
Three of my favorites
Forgive many things in others; nothing in yourself.
My music has been falling into 1 of 3 categories lately, most either country, southern rock, or Irish punk rock.
I'm big into alternative country;
Drive By Truckers
Randy Rogers Band
Floord (They're a great unsigned band out of Nashville)
Cross Canadian Ragweed
My southern rock tastes lean towards the bluesy stuff, at least for now.
Marshall Tucker Band
Ozark Mountain Daredevils
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Irish Rock/Classic stuff is pretty good if you like eccentric music. Most of my buddies give me shit over this stuff.
Bloody Irish Boys
Enter the Haggis
The Young Dubliners
Drinking from a firehose...
Here's my latest favorite: Five Finger Death Punch
Think of Rob Zombie crossed with Live crossed with Pantera....and they harmonize, write, and sing really well. I'd love to see them live.
I have really varied musical tastes, bordering on strange. Love everything but country, and some jazz doesn't appeal to me. I bought a new car a few months ago and loaded up the CD changer and trunk with a stack of CDs that made my son roll his eyes:
Love and Rockets
Jimmy's Chicken Shack
Smile Empty Soul
Soundtrack from "Rent" (fuck you guys; it's great musical theater)
Guns & Roses
Stone Temple Pilots
Dr. Dre's The Chronic
All Hail the Helmet!

Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again - Berthold Brecht
2 man and 1 woman is flying towards gay mountain with no visibility at high speed - Johan
You forgot Dokken, Danzig, and Budgie.
Some others I've been listening to alot are:
Witchcraft (Swedish band, sound like early Ozzy Black Sabbath)
Temple of the Dog (Grunge, similar to Soundgarden)
Come on boys, you got to do it right, pray to the moon in the middle of the night
