    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.

    EXQEX9 Yep.

    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.

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

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

    Blue October has that distinctive noise that only they can play.

    Does anyone else think that The Killers have a distinct sound, despite being indie? Or is that just 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.
