    Seems like the only answers I see is pop crap. My vote goes for Dream Theater, a band that actually has talent compared to most other bands listed so far. Almost all progressive bands have more talent than pop bands, and Dream Theater is a solid band all around; good lyrics (not necessarily a good singer, I'll admit), interesting guitar riffs and solos, more-than-one-note-per-string bass lines (this is a big factor to me, even though I don't play bass, it should still be interesting), killer drums, and the ever-owning keyboard. It's just a solid band all around, with a lot of talent.
