Can't narrow it down to 5, but I really like the ones Vel and Stefan have listed (except Black Eyed Peas).

The one I listen to the most ATM is Lilly Allen.

Heck, I'm not sure, I'm gonna give out three I really like almost every song of..

Cranberries
Evanescence
Linkin Park

Then there are bands which I like some songs of but dislike others (Rammstein, Shania Twain and Maddona for example).

There are many names and not sure in which order and how many should be named in order to be politically correct, but if you need just 5 then perhaps:

Sirenia
Epica
Therion
Nightwish
Stratovarius

I can certainly put no 2-record band like Linkin Park under the sticker "favorite band"; in 40 years of listening music that leaves not enough of an impression. Reducing it to 5 is difficult as well.
But if a condition was that the band would still be around then I'd have to name
Iggy Pop (with or without the Stooges, no matter).

They are so cool! I heard "Where Are You" on the radio and went and got that album a few weeks later (their newest album; the only one I have). :)

JJ, while I can appreciate your perspective on this, my determination of a great or even favourite band is determined by their style and the music they have made - be it 1 song, 1 album or 20 years of hits ....

What about Best Album or Best Song categories? Not to mention Currently Listening or Best Band of the last decade?

A band can do a great song or album, but completely fail in some other categories/songs/albums. A favourite band for me is a band whom I trust enough to buy their products without a second thought. It does not require 10 years of activity to gain such trust in my case. Indeed, you can call *my* favorites "current favourites" or "favourites of the last 3540,5 days" if you wish. For me "favourite" is not exactly a synonyme to "the best band in human history".

So this means CURRENT 5 favorite bands, not ALL-TIME favorite bands?
