    Default Best rock band right now?

    A try spell in the rockworld in some eyes I still think theres some quality bands out there.

    So who does it go to guys...

    My vote is either Velvet Revolver or Pearl Jam

    Velvet has had two great CD's in a row. (Libertad Contraband)

    Pearl Jam has been the best band in music since 1991.

    Then theres those popular bands radio bands that I have a ok feeling about. Nickleback..Three Days Grace..blah blah.

    I totally agree with Velvet Revolver. Add Interpol.

    IMO, the best "new" rock band recording and touring right now is The Arcade Fire.

    They're young, fresh and extraordinarily talented and they're doing music that doesn't fit any easily defined genre or style. I recently caught them in late Spring on a whim not really familiar with their music and certainly not knowing what the stage show would be like and by the third song was completely blown away. Their music is not for everyone and I can say they may be an acquired taste but of all the new bands that have broken out in the past 5 or so years, they are easily the best. If you have an open mind towards experiencing new bands and music, go see them as they are going to be playing throughout the US again in the next few months.

    Other bands that have been around for a while that are high on my list who are actively touring and releasing studio album that I think are at the top of the heap include Nine Inch Nails, Rush, The Cult and Iron Maiden. Above them all, U2 is probably overall the best band in the world though.

    T.B.

    well aren't three of the dramagods in Satellite party? Perry and Nuno are using the keyboardist and drummer right?

    In whatever incarnation, I hope Nuno tours the US again...

    Oh fuck new rock, it's either best bands from 70-ies to early 80-ies or new stuff.

    But still on topic I'd say "Brand New"

    Despite the RRHOF abortion, I still like Velvet Revolver and think their new CD is pretty strong.

    IMO, a GREAT band you may not have heard of is 'Black Rebel Motorcycle Club'. Check out their latest CD 'Baby 81'.

    Satellite Party is probably going to wind up being a one album band. My understanding is that they had a one record deal with Sony with an option to extend that deal depending on how well the debut album did this year - which has been mediocre at best.
