I am fairly certain that everyone on this site lists the Stranglers as their favourite band in the world EVER, but I also strongly suspect that the Stranglers is one of the few things that actually unites us all and we all have different other musical tastes.

So, I thought it might be interesting if we all listed our SECOND favourite band ever and, as many of us are 30/40somethings and probably like a lot of older bands, we also should list our favourite current/modern band (no that does not include the Stranglers !).

OK, I'I start.

SECOND BEST BAND EVER - The Clash

BEST MODERN/CURRENT BAND - Oasis

Conlcusion - Yes I am an old punk who loves rebel rockers that can really carry a toon.

Now its over to you - and if enough people do this we should get a prety good picture of our collective tastes...

2nd Fave: Motorhead.

Ringing in my ears has just about ceased after last night at Hammersmith. Best gig I've ever been to. The ole geezer still rocks like a bastard and I crowd surfed during 'Ace of Spades' - the best rock and roll moment of my life by far.....

:D :cool:
If Dave was to use a Hammond L100 for just one more gig I'd die content.

The Damned and Love with Arthur Lee.

Growing up it was the Stranglers and Damned. Love has become a recent obsession (as of 2002).
