Modern Rock

It just occurred to me that there is no thread for just straight, dare I say "mainstream" rock. Yes, we all love metal, hardcore, etc., but I know I'm not the only one who still listens to just straight rock bands....

****, I still listen to:

Nickelback
Seether
Cold
Staind
Breaking Benjamin
Tantric
Days of the New
Matchbox Twenty

Etc. Feel free to discuss and add to the list.



And no negativity ITT please.

Oh god.

/refrains from complete negativity

Seether has some pretty cool songs, The Remedy mostly. Breaking Benjamin have their moments, but their stupid major-key choruses basically ruin any decency they would otherwise have. So Cold is allright though.


Tool is good.

Seether has it's moments.

Godsmack sucks harder and harder every album they release, except for the acoustic album they made, that was kinda cool.

And uh... hmm... I like Maroon 5.

Out with it, then.


I can have fun with a lot of these lousy radio rock bands. It's easy enough to listen to, and I don't despise it. But it's not great music by any means.

The Glasspack
Jimbo Jones
Ninja Academy
Tight Bros From Way Back When

These are the kind of names that should be mentioned when talking about good modern rock.

And hell, I'd even take 30 Seconds To Mars or Bayside over anything in the first post. Except Seether, they are pretty good.

I also like :

Sparta
Foo Fighters
A Perfect Circle

I listen to a lot of Incubus. Muse is one of my top 5 favorite bands. Nine Inch Nails is a favorite as well. System of a Down, Coheed, Coldplay, Keane, Maroon 5, and Chevelle are some others that I listen to fairly frequently.

Crow is my favorite incubus album. System of a Down used to be a favorite of mine as well, I was a major sucker for their Armenian folk influence or whatever.
