I'm a prog guy. Genesis really speaks to me and has been my all time favorite since high school. The best material was written by Tony Banks and Steve Hackett, however, I consider Super's Ready, written by all, a true masterpiece. It's one of the few songs I can never get tired of listening to over and over.

Guns N' Roses is my favorite band but close follow-ups are Pink Floyd, Tool, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, and Type O Negative.

I really got into music with the '80s (Hair)Metal and '90's Alternative bands.  That being said I've got a bunch of bands that I really like listening to.  By era, I'd have to go with the following:

80's - Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue, Ratt
90's - Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam
The 60mm Sith Lord - All the hate and anger you've come to expect, now in a new conveniently sized package!

My favorite is Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble.  Sure he's a bit too early for me to have been a fan, I was 9 when he died, but you just can't beat his technique.  I like In Step because of the maturity his sound has, and even though its very polished, you can still feel the amazing depth and strength behind it, but you just can't beat the raw power and blinding speed in Texas Flood.

My favorite genre is metal/hard rock, and my favorite band would have to be Led Zeppelin. Runner ups would be Metallica, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, The Beatles, Slayer, Priest, Sabbath, Megadeth, bands along those lines. I also like a little alternative rock and blues.

I would have to say Sepultura - back when it had Max Cavalera as lead singer.  Major stress reliever there.  Metallica would take second even though they lost me after their black album and Korn would be my third.
