And of course there's Green Day.

Also, OP, there's this band, Threadstone. I reckon they're Nigeria's only true rock band, as they do the electric guitar stuff and all, unlike your Rooftop MCs and others.

U2! My al-time-nondebatable favourite musical group. Period
Closely followed by Coldplay then Nickelback, Linkin Park and good old Cranberries. Zombies is my favourite there.

In Nigeria, there's this young chap called Logo. Has a single on Youtube - Anya wune wune. I'v heard the guy play in church and he can turn a Pasuma Wonder track into a Guns 'n Roses style beat!

i love rock music to the core, inshort love is an understatement. I cherish it, if not for nigerian economy nd strange choice of music, i would have loved to be a rock star possibly with a band. My favourite rock band are "The who". They are kind of oldschool but still very cool. I also like avril lavigne, u2, greenday nd other talented rock bands/artists. Once again, i love rock **exits thread while whistling baba-o-riley by the who**

For me, Bad Religion's The Empire Strikes First has to be the greatest Rock album with The Empire Strikes First being the best track on the album. Very insightful messages about the human condition passed across via the euphoric feeling of the electric guitar. Some rock bands however just make noise and are annoying.
Below is a link to Broken by Bad Religion which is off their The Process of Belief album 10 years ago. The video is really shitty though
I have about 13000 Alternative and Rock genre songs on my iTunes.

Surprised no one has mentioned THE KILLERS! That's my favourite rock band. Then I find soft rock coming from THE FRAY, ONE REPUBLIC and MAROON 5 cool too. I once gambled on a MARILYN MANSON cd and it wasn't half bad at all. I'm quite limited when it comes to Rock because I'm more of a hip-hop person.

Everybody likes one form of rock music or the other: glam rock, blues rock, jazz rock, psychadelic, roots rock, alternative rock you name it. My Favourites:

Hendrix
Elvis
Aerosmith
Springsteen
Bob Dylan
Queen
Eric Clapton
R H Chillie Peppers
Led Zepellin
R.E.M
U2
...even Linkin
Run DMC (known for Hip hop) even have a "rockey" element in their songs.

Many people see only hard rock like black sabath as rock.

I don't know what to classify Pink White T's under but their song "Hey There Delilah" done with the acoustic guitar is the most awesome guitar song ever closely followed by Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence"
