I like many bands, but Rush has worn the crown since I was 7 years old. Until they hang it up, they are the kings...

My current top 5 is:
 
1. Porcupine Tree (Since I heard them for the 1st time)
2. Ulver
3. Opeth
4. Katatonia
5. Deftones -> I know that it's a diferent genre, but I have to say that... after many many years they still rock hard in my heart!

Purely judging from my RYM page where I have pretty much my entire record collection indexed and rated, my favourite band of all time has to be The Beatles. They are the only band from whom I own the entire studio catalogue and, bar the sophomore effort, each and every album gets at least four shiny stars from me, several of them five, which speaks for itself, I suppose! I count myself lucky in that, despite being forty years old, I haven't heard them to death, either of my own accord or via the radio. In fact, it was only when the remasters came out two years ago that I was finally able to familiarize myself with all of their albums.

Yes. P Tree!
 
Before PTree I never had a band who were just by far my favourite band.
I had mates who all had a band that was their most fav, Van Halen, Smashing Pumpkins and Live to name a few.... but I never thought i would be like that and find a band that was just that much a favourite over any other.
 
I was wrong! Something in my brain clicked when i heard PT. It was like it had been missing from my life all along.

Ok, I'm going to be difficult here...  
 
I would say there are about five bands that I routinely shuffle as my favorite. They have all been my favorite for extended periods of time and I tend to go back to each one for extended periods like some kind of addiction. In the past 10 years of my life, there really hasn't been any other band that has cracked my top five other than what you see below. So I will list them in no particular order:
 
Pink Floyd
Porcupine Tree
Tool
Opeth
King Crimson
 
If I had to absolutely choose a favorite, I would say right now that Opeth is getting the most listens. But if I were only allowed to take one band's music with me to solitary confinement for the rest of my life, that would probably be Pink Floyd. They have the greatest degree of variation in their catalog, so that might possibly help with the music growing stale. Though I might argue no band is immune to burnout if they are the only music you are hearing.
