    Gonna go with what I’ve been listening to the most lately since ‘favorite’ changes and the ‘of all time’ thing is way too hard. 

    Dan Auerbach/Black Keys
    Moonrise Nation
    Chris Cornell
    My Morning Jacket
    John Frusciante

    Tough to keep it to 5. Like some of the others already mentioned a lot too... The Clash, RHCP, Wilco... I’m sure we’ve all been hearing Petty a lot lately too :(
    There are two types of people in the world - those who love Pearl Jam, and those who don't know that they love Pearl Jam.

    The Beatles (above all rankings imo)

    Pearl Jam
    The Black Crowes
    The Drive-by Truckers
    Jellyfish
    Blind Melon

    Jason Isbell or Jack White couldn’t also squeeze in that list, among many others.

    @crowes74 , all your bands are in my wheelhouse except for Jellyfish....never heard of 'em. Which album of theirs do you recommend starting with? Based on your other taste in music it looks like I need to check 'em out:)

    Pearl Jam
    Tragically Hip
    Headstones
    Watchmen
    #5 is a toss up between SEVERAL. but Soundgarden probably wins most of the time.

    JJflash:  jellyfish is along the lines of the Beatles, brighten your day sing-a-long pop tunes.  they only have two studio records, Bellybutton and spilt milk.   Can’t go wrong with either but I’d give spilt milk the edge.   If you dig those they have a couple live records and a box set also.   It’s all gold in my book.     2 of the members have been with Beck for years (roger manning jr and Jason Faulkner).   Couple off shoots from the Jellyfish, Imperial Drag and Umajets are great records too if you’re a fan of pop.
