Thread: Rock on! (Strictly no Pop)
<<    >>
As far as Metal goes, I think my favorite band will always be Megadeth.
Rock rules! As does Linkin Park and Disturbed.
For me, Linkin' Park will never qualify as a good "rock" band. They just mix stuff together and add some distortion to their electric guitar and people think they're rock!! Duhhhhhhhh... If Linkin' Park are rock, then I'd be happy to call Pink Floyd as an Indian Classical band!
P.S. We don't have the "band" concept in Indian Classical music... but oh well!! And in my very first line of this post, you can safely remove the word "good" as well as "rock". Linkin' Park don't qualify for either! As I said, they just mix stuff together and all their songs sound the same!
As far as Metal goes, I think my favorite band will always be Megadeth.
I believe i have a CD of them somewhere, which i quickly shoved away after listening to it.
If Linkin' Park are rock, then I'd be happy to call Pink Floyd as an Indian Classical band!
Got me in splits that! Hard to imagine Floyd doing some good ol' classical Indian music.
Anyways, I still can't figure out what is the point of this thread? Are we discussing something or just blabbering on about our favourite rock bands.
Well, after the break-up of Creed, I think that Alterbridge is better than Creed. Better guitar-playing in this one. And the singer's quite good too.
Narsil-I hate you
As for ska: Please get yourself some CD's by the following: The Specials, Madness, or Operation Ivy. All else is in mockery of these bands and a distortion of what ska is. I believe ska was originally Jamaican, also, so I am sure if you dig deep enough you will find some very good Jamaican ska artists. May I suggest shopping at a small, independent local record store: you will not be blinded by commercialism that way.
Melian, I knew you were intelligent and had great musical taste, but now I'm even more impressed-I also am a fan of early punk and "post-punk", whatever that is, (as well as tons of other types of music) but all of the newer stuff seems contrived and recycled. Ever heard of T.S.O.L. or X? Great stuff. I could go on forever, but I'll spare you. One new band I think you'd really like is the Yeah-Yeah-Yeah's, out of New York. I'm not talking about their singles, though they are good too, I am talking about the album "Fever to Tell". It is sooo brilliant, that you almost cannot believe it is on a major label. Very Siouxsie& The Banshees/ and X and the singer, Karen O., is unbelievably talented. This is like my third time praising them here at PT, but I swear, they are the real thing. So good.
If anyone has not heard the new Queens of the Stone Age cd, get it and listen to it. It is one brilliantly written peice of rock 'n roll.
I like Led Zep, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and lots more including some punk and metal. I guess you could say I'm partof the "rock revival" thing that's goin on cause I'm only 13 years old, I also play guitar. ROCK ON! I hope this thread keeps goin!
I also agree with Laurel that we in America and Canada don't get anything cool like the download festival an all though Lars Ulrich is pretty cool, a good drummer and I like Metallica it suckswhat he did and it takes affect in Canada to, not cool.
[Always with me, always with you]
gonna tell them that one and check the reaction ;-)
[I'll let you know later, if I'd survived that one]
As for the Doors, I think my favourite has to be either Riders on the Storm or The End. My favourite album of theirs is American Prayer.
And well I know I will get a few arrghs but I do like Status Quo - there I've said it
RAP STANDS FOR
Wait till I tell my daughter what RAP stands for he he
My life is music...well. that and Tolkien. I like a variety....but basically it is all ROCK. Of the heavier stuff: Metallic, Ozzy Osbourne, Creed, Velvet Revolver, Soundgarden, Queensryche and I love Rush. Mid-Rock: Sammy Hagar, Pearl Jam, STP, Tom Petty. I love Heart...absolutely one of my favs. Older stuff I like (60's, 70's, and yes! even 80's) includes Zeppelin, Boston, Dokken, Night Ranger, AC/DC, UFO, Triumph, Poison, and my fav show of all time (and I been to many), PINK FLOYD!
Thank you for letting me express my love of music I couldn't possibly live without it.......
RAP STANDS FOR
OK, but what does GANGSTA stand for then?
Anyone like Rush,
I really like their early stuff, but in my opinion, after a great start they became progressively worse. After Moving Pictures I lost interest in them. Their first three albums, which together became Archives, are among my all-time favourite albums.
I'm a metalhead - i live the life of one anyway. long hair, entry-level job, and i wear band shirts! yah!
my favourite bands at the moment are:
Skid Row, Whitesnake, Motley Crue, old Metallica, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Megadeth, Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Alice In Chains, Dream Theater, Nevermore, Saxon and Anthrax, just to name a few ( i could go on all day, i'm very passionate about music haha)
Sometimes I listen to the heavier stuff as well like Death, Dissection and Emperor. But that stuff's a VERY acquired taste heh. If you're over 30, I wouldn't bother with it

Why not? My grandfather listens to them. He says it's better than listening to "Momma got no peas 'n rice 'n coconut oil"...
growing up in Ireland has made me apprecite other music than rock. that was untill i heard of Yusuf Islam or Cat Stevens. many people say that he is not "rock" but indeed he is.
Led Zepplin will always have a special place in my heart
'Twas fifty years ago this month that I first heard Bill Haley and the Comets' Rock Around the Clock. My mother and I left the family wheat ranch and drove our 1950 copper-bronze Pontiac Chieftain sedan to Cashmere, Washington where we were joined on our journey by my 16 year old cousin Anita, who was one year older than myself. We left her home and drove on across the Cascade Mountains via Stevens Pass and then to and across the Deception Pass Bridge to Whidbey Island, where we spent a couple days on our Aunt Anna's dairy farm visiting with our three cousins, Neil 18, Ruel 17, and Ira 14.
When we returned to eastern Washington, Neil accompanied us. To earn money for his first year of college, he was going to work that summer on the family wheat ranch; Anita was going to spend the rest of the week with us. Anyway, on that trip back across the mountains we discovered Rock Around the Clock on the car radio and heard it at least seven times during our six-hour ride and we three teenagers could hardly wait for the station to again spin-up that particular platter.
That was my introduction to Rock and Roll, and I loved it.
Nice memory though Grondy. It's great how a series of memories can be retained so strongly because of their association with a piece of music.
...and yes, I agree, nice memory, Grondy .
Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Queen, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pantera, Steppinwolf, Korn, Die Toten Hosen, Pearljam, Godsmack, Metalica, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Authority Zero,The Remnantz, with a bit of Dream Theater and Muddy Waters.
Pellet Hurler blows away Bolt Thrower.
ha ha.....but again there not as immense as Tiddly Winker...!!
Couple notes: Sorry, Wish You Were Here is a great album, but Dark Side's still the best.
Favorite Zeppelin song: Ten Years Gone Album:... ... it's close, but I have to go with Physical Graffiti over Houses
Favorite Doors song: Crystal Ship, still Album: L.A. Woman
Modern bands, well, closest I could come would be Dire Straits (killer debut album, in the same class as Are You Experienced, The Doors and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn) the Cars and U2 before they sold out completely. REM and AC/DC's pretty good most of the time. I'm sure I'm skipping some, but I've little use for truly modern "music. "
Let's see...my favorite ROCK song..at the moment: I Found Forever by Fighting Instinct...before that I could've listened to All That I've Got by The Used, or Save Me by Unritten Law.
I'm a big fan of Green Day as well...some of my friends pick on me about that one, but I don't care.
My favorite Band...right now: HInder, simply because I can listen to their entire CD, Extreme Behaviour, and I like every song, and I know every word...not many times I get albums like that.
I also like Fear the State, heard them on myspace one time by accident, and I fell in love
Oh, oh yeah, COHEED AND CAMBRIA! Carlos Sanchez is so COOL! I used to could make my hair look just like his...whether or not that's a good thing I'm still deciding, but I LOVE THEM!!!!!
I like a bit of 80s rock..like AC/DC, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Kiss, not much, but I like em alright.
I like 3rd Eye Blind...Three Doors Down...System of a Down RULES! Ozzy's cool...Hawthorne Heights, I like them too...and AAR (All-American Rejects).
Hmm...I wonder if there are any more....I like Sum 41, Fat Lip is an awesome song! I like Cake, Chevelle, Senses Fail, and The Lit, Trapt, Incubus, AVENGED SEVENFOLD! The Beast and The Harlot has got to be a GODLY song as far as guitar solos, and all around AWESOME goes!
Silverstein's good, too. Atreyu..mustn't forget them...Death Cab for Cutie, Matchbook Romance, I'm a Soundgarden freak, Staind, and Collective Soul, Smile Empty Soul..because I totally connect with Silhouettes, heh heh...The Offspring, I like Bad Religion, and....Blue October...Disturbed...KoRn, FallOut Boy, Godsmack, PANIC! At the Disco, ehm...(WOW a LONG list...) Papa Roach ...Red Hot Chili Peppers...I nearly forgot Shinedown...and Thrice...okay..I think that's all...if I think of more I'll put 'em here, ^_^
well today is super boring
so ill just list every band that i love
Charlie Daniels Band
Panic! At the Disco
and probably some others
Flogging Molly just put out a dvd/cd that I dually bought. The dvd gives insight on the band's beginnings, workings and members. There are some interesting acoustic versions of songs like Drunken Lullabies and Another Bag of Bricks on the cd half, along with songs like Laura. Awesome with a bit more awe is the only way to describe it. FM-faithfuls: it's a must!
A few days ago, I was told of a band called Running With Scissors. They're out of Virginia and have one sweet sound. For some reason the lead singers voice reminds me a bit of Mars Volta but we shall see if this association passes with time.
