Bands with a distinctive sound


Hell, It's about time!
What bands can you listen to a new song and know its that band before the radio tells you what it is. Some bands have distinctive sounds to them that makes you go "Oh thats (insert band name here)"

One band that I can always pick up on right away is the Foo Fighters. No matter the song, old or new I can always tell its them. All thier songs sound the same.
Queen, Hendrix, Clapton, Miles.

Im convinced if you have heard Miles play once in your life, you can distinguish his style for the rest of your life.

The singers voice and how they play their guitars always gave them away to me.

A7X sounds like every other band out there on the radio to me.

I kind of agree, I love A7X but they do sound similar to over heavy metal bands such as Dragon Force etc.

I think Muse are a very dinstictive band, their sound is instantly recognisable.

Also the Killers are easy to recognise as Brandon Flowers's voice gives me a warm glow.
