Favorite Rock Band?

Recommended Posts

We've got a thread on favorite rappers, so how about some love for good old rock n' roll?

I enjoy everything from classic rock like Black Sabbath to current alt rock like the White Stripes. I also love finding brilliant bands that are just not commercial enough to get the fame, such as Built to Spill. A favorite new band of mine is Wolfmother - damn, they rock!

Nice! Pearl Jam is still putting out good music after all these years, like their self-titled album last year. I esp. liked the song, "Life Wasted."

Nine Inch Nails is also still amazing nowadays - the new album is as good as the early stuff!

Typically I prefer listening to new rock over songs I've heard a million times. But there are a few classics from Quiet Riot & Twisted Sister that still get my head banging, lol! How can ya not still like "Cum On Feel The Noize" & "I Wanna Rock" ...

You liked the new White Stripes cd? I hate it and to me it sounds like 2 year olds wrote it, but at least you like it.

Well so far, you are the first person I have spoke with that actually likes it but thats cool. Has anyone else noticed that every cd has pretty much sucked this year? I can only think of one so far that came out that I enjoyed. Incubus might have come out with the very worst this year. I swear 07 is like the curse of the new cd or something.

Different strokes for different folks. I like the single "Icky Thump" & plan at some point to buy the new White Stripes CD. I also like all the songs I've heard from the newest Incubus CD & also plan to buy it.

Anything you recommend, MustacheToes?

The only CD that I have enjoyed that has came out this year is Rufus Wainwright, Release the Stars. I can't imagine many people have heard of him and it's not even his best performance but it has been my favorite CD of 07. There really isn't anything that I would recommend because everytime I listen to something "new" to me I dig deep and pull something out old. I'm not sure if you guys have watched the new Flight of the Conchords series on HBO, I haven't caught it yet, but I downloaded some of their music a few months ago and it was pretty entertaining and actually talented as well. Other then that I'm probably just going to keep bumpin it with the original Tenacious D cd, a genius classic.

If you guys like Southern/indie rock....Download some LUCERO...it's really good stuff...girls...whiskey...beer..getting drunk...thats what they pretty much sing about..It's really good stuff..A lot of people i know dont like it because the singer has a raspy countryish voice..

Actually one I left out was I recently got the new Ben Kweller self titled album which is really good, the only thing bad about it is the lyrics.

Not familiar w/ those, but I'll check 'em out. Thanks!

mattygrabs, you might like a band called Clutch. I think they're great & have all of their CDs. They sound like a cross between Black Sabbath & ZZ Top.

Well if you check out Rufus, it will be far from what you expect and the lyrics may creep you out quite a bit (he is extremely gay and sings about some of his past experiences). I like to consider him a modern day Elton John, but thats just my opinion he's really talented though and plays both the piano and acoustic guitar and can sing as good as anyone else these days.

I know his name & rep, but have never really heard his stuff. As long as there's a guitar involved & the singing is passionate, I can typically appreciate it.

May I also recommend the Arcade Fire. The music is very good, & I think it takes some life experience to really appreciate the lyrics & themes.

Death Cab, yes. I do like them, esp. that latest album, Plans. "Soul Meets Body" was a great single.

I know the name Postal Service but not their material.
