Best tank?

I was curious as to what you guys consider the best tank, the one you groan when you see the other team has chosen them and cant do without on your own team. Any sort of input will be greatly appreciated, whether it be pointing out flaws or highlighting the pros and cons of any tanks you consider good or bad.

I am fairly low leveled (12) but i played ROC DotA for a couple years untill it eventually died out and my friend showed me this game about a week ago and im trying to rise in the ranks as quickly as i can. I like to play tank/off-tank characters more than dps because i feel being selfless is highly underrated. I love ending a game 3-5-11 just racking up the assist as long as we eventually win. So far in my solo que everyone likes to choose the carries (obviously), so i think choosing the 'best' tank and becoming great with him will give us a huge advantage in every game no matter the team makeup.

Yes i know that was long-winded, but i feel that you should know that whichever tank people love the most i will but a lot of time and effort into becoming great with that champion.

The best tank I think...

Shen: his taunt is his best ability followed by his ult for dropping in or escaping
Amumu: his ult is hax, and his bandage is **** good for catching runners or taking an enemy by surprise. Then you have his AoE health % dmg...which is just the sexiest.

Shen is better for those fights where the enemy is turtling a tower, amumu is better for team fights in the open.

Offtank...
POPPY **** YEA

I hear a lot of things about Amumu, and isn't Shen getting nerfed a bit with his ult?

shen singed and amumu.

Shen and singed just can't seem to be harrassed out of a lane, hard as hell to kill even if they don't build tank items.

Amumu has his ulti, which will make me groan if their team has someone like fiddle on it. AOE teams mainly.

oh the tank that makes me groan is galio.

His ranged abilites with his "buy mercs or your dead" ult annoys me.

Amumu, Shen, Rammus, Gailo, Garen, Malphite, Mordekaiser, Alistar, Singed, Taric....pretty much in that order.

Some other heroes can tank, I just don't like them to.
