I like the Foo Fighters but I would have to say Alice In Chains outranks them when it comes to kick ass stuff.

I think the Foo Fighters are actually a really good rock and roll band. Dave Grohl has easily become one of the bigger rock icons of my generation. Their last album 'wasting light' was just a really good rock album. I think if I could morph FF and Nirvana into one band they would make my list but not separately. Without giving this much thought...the first 3 names that popped into my head were...

Alice In Chains
Rage Against the Machine
Queens of the Stoneage

All of these bands are/were so good at making complete albums full of quality shit from start to finish..and every album they did had it's own way about it, different from the last/next

AIC is bad ass.. Layne Staley, RIP...

Nirvana is my choice... started a whole new genre of music... going to school in Seattle when it was at its peak was unreal... Oh the stories I have.

Nirvana- they made grunge alternative mainstream pop for 5 year or so period
REM- redefined what alternative rock was
Aerosmith- not my favorite but how long they were on top is hard to argue with
The Eagles- Their harmonies are works of magic. Radio has ruined what people think of them. Listen to the entire catalog
Lynyrd Skynyrd- like the Eagles radio has pigeonholed their reputation. Listen to the entire catalog
[U]Sonic Youth[/u]- arguably the most artistic band ever. their influence is immenseThe Pixies -like sonic youth their influence is still felt
The Red Hot Chili Peppers -keeping the funk alive
Most Seattle/Grunge bands got their inspiration from Sonic Youth... Teenage Riot is still one of my favorite songs of all time.

Foo is good... Love Dave Grohl, but there are many other bands from the NW that I prefer...

Melvins
Tad
Mudhoney
Nirvana
Alice In Chains
Soundgarden
Everclear (From Portland)

I like Pearl Jam about as much as Foo... but the bands I mentioned above, I would put ahead of those 2

I'm surprised no one's said Boston yet. I love Boston.
How about Kansas?
Or Dream Theater?
Tool, Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains ... all worthy additions.

Subtract Everclear and add Screaming Trees and Mother Love Bone and you have my list of favorite bands, keeping Pearl Jam at the top of course :)
