R&P: What are your top 5 favorite bands (game) ...?

Now think of similarities between your first favorite band and second favourite band. When you can't think of anymore, do the same with your favorite band and third favorite band, and so on to your forth and fifth favorite band. Best answer goes to the person with the longest overall list.

Evanescence and Nirvana:

- Both have a single called "Lithium", released on their second studio album.

Evanescence and Guns N' Roses:

-

Evanescence and Kamelot:

- Both formed in the 90s.

Evanescence and Within Temptation:

- Both female fronted bands

- Both formed in the 90s.

- Evanescence's "My Immortal" and Within Temptation's "Memories" are both about the death of someone close.

Theres probably more but I can't think of any at the moment.

MQ2: Now Playing?
