It keeps changing as I discover more music, so I voted no.  Right now, though, I have to say that NIN and PT are tied as my #1 favourites, and that's been going strong for nearly a year.
 
Trent and Steven.. Steven and Trent.. it just seems so wrong to say I like one of them more than the other..  Shocked

Oh, I know what you mean. NIN used to be my number one "band" since 1994. Until I discovered PT 5 years ago. Now they are both fighting for that place...

Hahaha.  Awesome!  Someone understands what I mean! Grin
 
Now the question:  If Trent Reznor and Steven Wilson got in a fight, who'd win?.. oh snap.
Then again, I'm wondering what the hell I'm doing asking that on a PT forum.. Tongue

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's struggling between NIN and PT.

You mean like a fist fight? Definitely Trent. SW is too skinny to beat Trent the bodybuilder.

We are kindred spirits *highfive!*
 
Yeah, I agree about the fist-fight XD Steven would end up getting big-time hard-line bad-luck FIST-F*@$'d as far as physical strength is concerned D: xD
 
Intellectual war, though?  That's tough, as they're both incredibly intelligent.. but knowing Steven's quick wit, I'd have to place my bet on him.. Tongue

Well, I gave this a little thought and chose yes.  
 
Growing up my absolute favorite was Pink Floyd, until I heard Porcupine tree (when IA came out). Now PT is my absolute favorite. PF still ranks up there but after listening to them so much for, I don't know, decades (I am 41) I needed something different yet similar.  
 
I figure by the time I listen to PT too much I'll be near the end anyhow!! Smiley
 
Love PT immensley. Listen to something by them daily.  
 
Maybe this will change, maybe not. If it does it will be something that blows my away. I don't forsee this.

I said yes simply because I am so obsessed with PT at the moment, but since my #1 has changed so many times over the years, upon hindsight I would've chosen no. Rush was the first band that grabbed a hold of my young, impressionable aesthetic. Music up until then was not really a part of my life, and Rush held that top spot for like 4.5 years. Then it was A Perferct Circle, and later Tool. After that it was Dream Theater, and then came the fateful day when I saw a PT advertisement on the Rush website. Since then I've discovered so many wonderful artists. At the moment, PT and Sia share #1, but that is subject to change hourly. Wink

Rush all the way...I dunno if any band will ever affect me like they do. I remember bringing a Walkman and cassette tape (remember those?) of 2112 to my 5th grade class and showing everyone how AWESOME they were...
 
PT and Smashing Pumpkins are tied for No.2

Porcupine Tree..... my favourite band because they're quite simply the best and a long way ahead of whoever is second. All in my most humble opinion of course.

No, I don't. Never had only one.

I have four favourite bands right now, which are Depeche Mode, Porcupine Tree, Kent and The Cure.

OK, OK, Depeche Mode is alone at the top.

I suppose over the past 5 years my absolute favourite would be Pink Floyd but there's always several others which might replace it for a bit but Pink Floyd is always up there. Having said that I don't think Pink Floyd at #1 really describes my taste in music, there is just so much good stuff out there that #1 means very little, top 5 or top 10 would be much better at actually describing the music I enjoy.
