What you hear is controlled by the music industry almost 100% - or, as cke put it in the blog Chunks, Eggs en Prix:"Think of it--there's only so much music that one person can listen to in a day. Most people seem to prefer to have music playing dimly in the background through virtually every waking minute of their lives (except when they're watching television).

If you know of more that I've missed, send me a message and I'll add them. Also, if there are ones that you think shouldn't be on this list, let me know so I can add links to more info.
For living people, this list is based on how they identify. If they've had same-sex experiences but say they're heterosexual, they won't be listed here. That also means that if they say they're bisexual but have never had a same-sex experience, they will be listed.
It's alphabetized by first letter, so if you can't find a band that should be here, try looking under "The."
