All entries subject to change, since I honestly listen to so much music in so many genres that I know I'll be missing some great stuff because I'm kinda doing this spur-of-the-moment-like. I'll only include genres for groups I feel the majority of you don't listen to/care about/know about....although I do include commentary for all!
#: 311 (best number group I have anything by...by far).
A: Amorphis (Finnish folk/death/progressive metal/rock....depending on time period...they evolved greatly from their early pure death days)
B: Bob Dylan ('nuff said)
C: Cathedral (British stoner metal, influenced heavily by Sabbath, but with a heavier, sludgier sound)
D: Dream Theater (awesome progressive rock/metal)
E: Entombed (Swedish death/hardcore punkish stuff)
F: Faith No More (just when I was ready to give up on this letter for the night, a song by them I put on one of my "I'm bored" mix tapes played...thank you KARMA!)
G: Grateful Dead (awesome "catch a buzz" music there)
H: Hypocrisy (amazing Swedish death metal group that has succeeded in repeated altering their style without ever selling out....ie: becoming mainstream).
I: Iron Maiden (the first metal group I ever listened to and the greatest).
J: Johnny Cash (amazing library of material here)
K: KISS (at least their really old stuff from the 70s....I try to forget most of the rest exists).
L: Led Zeppelin (their versatility as far as musical styles was amazing)
M: Monster Magnet (stoner rock/metal)
N: Neil Young (lot of good stuff).
O: Obituary (the kings of American death metal....their crushingly heavy rhythm guitar sound is just amazing)
P: Paradise Lost (versatile group that's done slow-tempo death before moving on to more mainstream metal styles)
Q: Queensryche (has some great stuff spanning from Warning to Empire
R: Red Hot Chili Peppers (one of the best groups of recent times)
S: Suicidal Tendencies (punky, funky thrash)
T: Tom Petty (always been a fan of his music)
V: Velvet Underground (easily the best "V" group I can think of)
W: the Who (simply phenomenal stuff)
I'll fill in the holes and finish off the alphabet tomorrow or Wednesday....my brain's slowing down and I don't want to put blah groups in just 'cuz they're all I can think of.
EDIT 1: Added the Who as my "W" band!
EDIT 2: Changed my "N" pick!!

OD if you like FNM, you should check out Mr. Bungle; Mike Patton's real group. FNM is Patton fooling around with mainstream music, and Bungle is him showing off everything he can do.
Also 311 rocks and has been my favorite band since I was 13. Now that's three 311 fans on this site (Ruder is the other)!

We need to balance out this 311 fandom with more fans of my new favorite band, The Mars Volta.
As for KISS, whenever I think of them I can't put aside the horror of "I WAS MAAAADE FOR LOVING YOU, BABY"

Anyone who admits to liking Volta becomes MY NEW ARCH NEMESIS

Sucidal Tendancies are cool. I've only got one song by them though.
