slimes: The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead, singing

Come out of the things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that can't be named
A tiger's waiting to be tamed, singing

You are, you are...

Clocks! Those lyrics are amazing. You just can't help but sing along.

pDude: Nope. No beef with Paul Mc Coy of 12 stones except for the fact that they so diverted from the Hard rock style they played on the albums Potter's Field and Anthems for the Underdog, and started sounding like an Indie rock band. So I dumped them like a bad habit grin

Nobody has mentioned Stone Temple Pilots. If you love Creed and Pearl Jam, then you will love that band.

I saw you mentioned Trapt cheesy, you are indeed a true rocker. You have gone beneath the surface to the inner side of rock. Just like me. wink

Didnt go beyond their first album..just 12 stones.took an interest in them cuz you mentioned it in your Adamawa thread.

Rocktation: Hmmn...a lot of commercial rock songs and artistes listings going on here. undecided

Make sure you have all the albums at your station.

How could i forget The Afters and Seether.

Have been a rockaholic for God knows how many years, my top 10 rockers are:

My undisputed number one rock peeps for life are Linkin Park (including Mike Shinoda's side gig; Fort Minor) = Living Things for me is the album of the year 2012 with songs like Powerless (theme song for the Movie 'Abraham Lincoln; Vampire Hunter), Castle of Glass, Burn It Down, Tinfoil, e.t.c.
2. Nickelback
3. Owl City: Fire Flies is a classic for the ages
4. Maroon 5: Too many great tracks to count
5. U2: Awakened my love for rock music
6. Coldplay
7. Greenday
8. The Script: #3 is a damn cool album
9. Creed
10. Coldplay

Honourable mention to people like Phil Collins, Toto, Hoobastank, Three Doors Down and to a lesser extent Nigerians who have done good rock like Jeremiah Gyang in "Kaunah Allah", Neo for "Nepa Bring The Light" and the Roof Top Mcs for "Shock Therapy" and others like "Lagimo"

90s: Aerosmith, Creed, Goo Goo Dolls, Eagle Eye Cherry, Take That, Matchbox 20, Audio Slave, The Cranberries, U2, Savage Garden, Red Hot Chillipeppers, Limb Bizkit etc. I know i forgot many.
2000 till present: We've seen them here. But these are my selected best: Coldplay (my all-time best, and 'Clocks' my best track), Linkin Park, Train, Switch Foot, Keane, Avril Lavinge, Snow Patrol, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, The Script, The Fray, Daughtry, Vanessa Carlton, Damien Rice, All American Rejects, Bowling for Soup, Secondhand Serenade, Five For Fighting...the list is endless

This is the reason why I have issues with people who claim to be purists. You classify people's preferences as 'commercial" or "not real" just because you have taken it upon yourself to listen to obscure artists who claim to be pure rockers and thumb their noses at the successful ones but in reality are nothing more than deadbeat, going-nowhere artistes. Same way [b]Jay-Z [/b]was initially classified as being a non-rapper. I would rather listen to commercial rockers like Linkin Park than listen to garbage like Arcade Fire or Belle or Papa Roach.

I love Alter Bridge, Creed, Breaking Benjamin: they are all Hard Rock.

Puddle of Mudd is my best rock group cos they sound a bit like Nirvana.

I guess you know that Alter-Bridge is same as Creed minus their Lead-Singer/Vocalist i.e Scott Stapp

pDude: Hey you guys that love Creed I have a message for you:

Do you know that after Creed broke up and the lead singer left, the remaining band members formed a new band called Alter Bridge. Alter Bridge rocks like hell.

Check their songs out on youtube.

Also check out the new band formed by Korn's former guitarist. The name of the band is Brian 'head' Welch. Check out the song called Paralyzed.
