Nickydrake: 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.
been in one of their shows sometime ago. They do gospel rock and are quite good. Theyre from the north so explain why they arent exactly ubiquitous.

if anyone hates rock, he/she hates life. life is rock. its like the part of your soul yearns for it, moves to the beats,instruments and the voice.

rock is the only genre that covers all genre of music, each of which gives you hope, meaning to life. I'm always inspired.

Rock ROCkS!

Rock is the real thing. ......Blues and Pop talk about girls and love all the time
Rap and Hip hop and RnB are about money, killing, hating
Raggae talks about oppression and ganga
Rock talks about life in reality.....the way we live it.

"One for all and all for one" = Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting?

Seal= "Hey Joe"?

Wow coldplay to me can do no wrong. I have everything of theirs. Especially love Talk, Rush of blood to the head, amsterdam, politik, purple hill. Also love Oasis (their classics should be studied in school of rock lol). Then am huge on Florence and the machine. Have y'all noticed British bands are so good?
Then Nivarna's like teen spirit is the stuff of imortality. U2, what more can I say? In naija apart from those Nepa bring the light guys I've not heard much cool stuff save for some of Bez's stuff that's kinda alternative.
cheers peeps!

I initially started off with alternative/soft rock but I've got to explore other heavier sub-genres. I currently listen to a lot of classic rock, particularly my favourite, Led Zeppelin. Then there is the Rolling Stones, Guns n Roses, Pink Floyd, Jimmy Hendrix (insane solo guitarist), Eric Clapton (with his peculiar blues rock) etc. I still listen to the contemporary acts of Keane, Thirteen Senses, Red Hot Chilli, White Stripes etc. The first rock acts I got into were back in secondary school with Evanescence and Nirvana and those were the days I stopped listening to hip-hop, R&B/Pop.

In my SS1, I could recite almost every reigning rap song. As far back as primary school, I dey cram Tupac and Biggie. Now, I know nothing about hip-hop cos I simply don't listen to it anymore. It's all about Rock, Jazz, New Age and Classical music for me.

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I could stay awake just hear you breathing,
Watch you smile while you are sleeping,
While you're far away and dreaming.

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment, forever.

Well every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure!

I WAS "BORN", "BRED" & "BUTTERED" IN ROCK.MUSIC!! The hard rock/heavy metal genre
.
My dad came back from d States with a box full of Lps and singled and I was sold on rock music early in life.
.
when I was in d university in the 80's I had well over 400 rock albums and am still collecting!
.
Black Sabbath was and still is my favourite heavy metal band. i have all d albums d band ever released and d greatest rock moment of my life was when I caught them live in concert in the UK in d 80's!
Black Sabbath is d daddy of them all as they defined what heavy metal rock came to be!
Their album 'Sabotage' released 1975 is d best heavy metal album ever made.
i also love
Led Zep
Deep Purple
Judas Priest
Iron Maiden
Metalica
Raindow
Linkin Park
etc etc
