So impossible, but if I had to compile a list, perhaps a little like this-

 

Treat

Harem Scarem

LeBrock

Fate

Vain

Danger Danger

Pretty Maids

Poison

Bonfire

Midnite City

 

My problem is that so many of my all-time favourite albums (Blue Tears, Roxus, Hotboy, Bangalore Choir, Attraction, Intuition, Aviator, Masquerade, Zero, Blue Blud etc.) are all one-offs, so it's very tricky separating favourite bands from favourite albums. But the above is a rough guess.

This is tough as things have changed a bit over the years but as of right now I'd say (not really in a particular order): 

1.  Def Leppard

2.  H.E.A.T 

3.  Warrant

4.  Poison

5.  Midnite City

6.  Crazy Lixx

7.  Guns N Roses

8.  Eclipse

9.  Motley Crue

10. Kissin' Dynamite

Honorable mention:  Shiraz Lane, Pretty Maids, Tesla

Bon Jovi is one I struggled with.   They probably should be on the list but I've despised their past 15-20 years so much and I listen to them so little now that I couldn't do it.

 A couple more lists with a NFO/Lordi combo. Nice. 

Are you guys feeling Soilwork at all? I highly recommend their Verkligheten album.

I think the key to this fun question is right now.....not all-time, ever.  

For me:

1.  Dirty Honey

2. The Pretty Reckless

3. Judas Priest (current tour is great)

4. Halestorm

5. Gonna cheat a bit....Crazy Lixx, H.E.A.T., Eclipse, W.E.T., Kissin' Dynamite (ties, others I would put here too; proudly waving the 80s hard rock/metal flag, heck yeah!)

6. Def Leppard (they keep plugging away and staying in the spotlight)

7. Cheap Trick (and they are still putting out new music, very impressive)

8. Mammoth WVH (Wolfgang's the real deal)

9. Thunder (an amazing career, and they never get due credit; heck, they just put out a new album)

10. AC/DC (Power Up came out when we needed rock the most!)

(and then any projects involving Sammy Hagar, George Lynch, Zakk Wylde, Jeff Scot Soto, Deen Castronovo, and/or Doug Aldrich)

My LEAST favorite right now.....Bon Jovi.....listening to JBJ on tour right now is really hard to do. And the current lineup is a shell of the band we knew and loved.

And to add, totally forgot.....and anything Myles Kennedy is involved in, this guy is super-talented.

Soilwork are a bit hit and miss, but the 'Verkligheten' disc is great and definitely my favourite they have done thus far
