    I've probably missed some. I started by editing the other lists, so apologies for any duplicates
    Surely someone else likes AC/DC?

    AC/DC
    Oasis
    Pink Floyd
    King Crimson (mainly first album)
    Black Sabbath
    Led Zeppelin
    Jefferson Airplane
    David Bowie (early)
    Eagles
    Tangerine Dream
    Rolling Stones 69 - 72 mostly
    Jethro Tull
    Neil Young (some of it inc CSNY & Buffalo Springfield)
    The Who
    Jimi Hendrix
    Nirvana
    Fairport Convention
    The Beatles
    Manic Street Preachers
    Radiohead
    Guns 'N' Roses
    Jean Michel Jarre
    Dodgy
    Deep Purple/Rainbow
    Stereophonics
    Free/Bad Company
    Some Eric Clapton & bands
    Muse
    Kasabian

    Edit: There's not much I actually dislike, virtually all rap, novelty records, football & sport songs, Xmas songs and crooners. Some things get overplayed eg Queen on rock radio.

    EDIT 2:
    I've added Muse & Kasabian.

    There's bound to be some I've forgotten in the moment.

    Of course ...

    Doors
    Led Zep
    Deep Purple
    Hawkwind....

    I could go on.
