Reel Big Fish.
Ska is so underappreciated.
Linkin Park (feel free to tell me I'm wrong, I have my reasons to justify that one, whether you agree or not is your choice, I really don't care)
Pfsh, AMEN!! Finally, someone with some sense! I have to admit, I always change the channel when Coheed and Cambria come on my beloved Sirius Satellite Radio. They remind me of a very crappy version of Rush. The instrumentals are fine, but the dudes high-toned warbly voice is horrid. The Mars Volta is listenable, but meh. Opeth though, they're actually doing something amazing and profound musically. Dark Tranquillity too, although their songs get a little repetitive, but who cares since they sound so good.
Especially Falling to Pieces.
Now about Linkin Park: sincerely, they are one of the bands I hate the most. Man, they blend so much rap and techno into their rock it doesn't even get classifiable enough. And I tell ya, I used to like them a while ago, but I grew tired of the repetitiveness of their songs. Just my 2 cents on them.

Album sales have nothing to do with it, the other bands on my list prove that one. I just think they're amazing at making mainstream music that, at the same time, is maturely written, and while simplistic, has multiple layers to it. I also think they put on the best live show I've ever seen (and considering the bands I've seen, that's pretty impressive).
Also, in reference to the Nsync thing, all of the members are actually really good singers, and Justin Timberlake is, in my opinion, one of the best pop artists of all time.
I said skillwise dream theater , but honestly... I hate dream theaters music lol
So... for a mix between sounds good and still has mass skill I'm just gonna go with everyone else and say coheed
Dream theater sure as hell knows how to play their instruments but I don't think they know how to make songs appealing......
TOOL and dream theater (the end)
I disagree with you about dream theater. Except for one or two of the songs from their new cd everything is appealing.
