    Default Good Modern Music

    So alot of people out there follow alot of bands that are mostly over a couple decades old. Anyone know of some really good modern rock bands. Even if its just an inividual song from an artist that is good.

    Personally I love alot of bands that are relatively new

    Gotthard- Swedish (english speaking) rock band. Really awesome, lot of energy and catchy tunes
    Silvertide- Opened for VH on 04 tour, great sound, awesome band with a classic rock edge
    DropKick Murphy's- Awesome band that played in the movie "The Departed". Irish bagpipes mixed with hard rock makes for an interesting mix.
    The Fratelli's- New band from England thats making a splash over here. Just really new and intersting type of music. Definetly has its roots in rock.
    BuckCherry- There new alblum is pretty good, and getting to be pretty popular

    Alot more, but hopoefully you guys have some thoughts too

    "Avenged Sevenfold" and "My Chemical Romance" would be my picks, along with a terrific three-piece prog-rock band called "Muse". Rather than the normal standard followed by several of today's bands (one or two good tracks per album with a shitload of filler crapola), the bands that I mentioned actually have the musical talent and songwriting chops to flesh out an entire cd with terrific material.

    Highly recommended.

    "Wolfmother" are ok, yet it tends to remind one of listening to a parody album at times (think of a barely pubescent Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin fighting it out in a middle school parking lot, before they where famous, with the guy from "The White Stripes" as the gym coach breaking it up by yelling loudly ).

    They're an ex-band. Cornell and the boys parted ways earlier this year.

    I agree with Chef on MCR. The Black Parade is killer. I've found myself not listening to much rock lately. Been listening to more Amy Winehouse/Joss Stone when it comes to new stuff. Also been on a Hendrix/SRV kick lately for old stuff.

    Without sounding self serving. . .you really should listen to REVERY. The music is similar to Velvet Revolver, Buckcherry, etc, but still a little different.

    www.myspace.com/revery

    Don't just listen to the first song and judge -- there is some variety there.

    The whole CD is really good.
    www.facebook.com/revery
    If you like cool, rock music, check out REVERY. We've put out two albums, and an EP. We were signed back in '06 and toured the US (our single Popstar Wedding was all over the radio back then). Our latest album, Adora De Phonic is available on Itunes, Amazon, etc.

    Were you listening to the same band I was? These guys sucked in 04! Just my opinion though. They butchered "Simple Man"

    I missed out on the 04 tour, all I got to listen to was their CD, which I thought was fantastic. Devil's Daughter, I ain't coming home, Blue Jeans, SFC, all good songs.

    Also i like the british rock band "Ten" and "Wig Wam".

    I think jet is probably one of the best bands around. There new CD "Shine" is awesome, with "Stand Up" being my favorite track.

    Silvertide blew, as did the other band that opened for VH on the tour. I found this pop/rock band BIG CITY ROCK, which I thought is pretty good. Nothing else really stands out to me for good new rock music.

    Silvertide is the band that covered "simple kind of man"? I saw them at a festival show a couple of years ago (must have been 03-04). They were decent, nothing to get too excited about, though.

    Best metal band out right now is Machine Head...They should attain Metallica type status with their new cd "The Blackening".

    Best rock band out is Godsmack. They're becoming the younger generations Aerosmith. Good, predictable songs with sub-par guitar playing and a great frontman/vocalist....And a slew of rock "hits".

    I'm not really into anything pop-punk or emo or anything like that. For the most part, any time I turn on the radio it's some lame Chili Peppers song or another terrible band trying to sound like Tool or Creed.

    Fireball Ministry is good. Sounds a lot like Molly Hatchet...'stoner rock.' Saw "The Broken" on MTV2 over the weekend. That song is catchy AND rocks.

    Foo Fighters is good too. "Best of You" is an awesome, even if Grohl yells it.

    Godsmack sounded like shit live ! and as far as Joe Perry sub-par guitarist ? S.Erna sounds like he gargles with glass man , that dude should have stuck to the drums . he maybe ok frontman but imo not a great singer .
