HOW CAN YOU NOT MENTION
' KORN
'


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.

Why do you think Metallica comes first and second in my list lol. Used to have all their albums from their debut to death magnetic. Tho my favorites are Load and death magnetic albums.

Blur
Korn
Three days Grace
Jonas Brothers
Aerosmith
The All-American Rejects
Green Day
Band of Horses
Radio head
Maps
My other favorite bands are: Gorillaz, Little Dragon, The Verve and U2 . I only like Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana, some of their other songs are a bit nasty. I mean, 'MV'?

It's nice to know that some Nigerians actually listen to Rock music, not just mainstream songs and hip-hop.

If you love Metallica, Evanessence,RED, you would also love these guys: Egypt Central

Nobody here has mentioned them. They sing mainly for WWE wrestling and WWE movies. Just listen to the below songs. If you don't like them, then I will pay you 100 dollars.

trent9002: Nirvana. I miss Cobain


Read he attempted & completed suicide!
Have not heard none of their hit songs.
The group is one of the standards used as yardsticks in determining the place of new artists or rate known ones.
They must be that good.
He was said to be specifically highly talented.
Re: Do You Like Rock Music? What's Your Favourite Band? by MOBBDEEP: 10:26pm On Dec 28, 2012
TouchDown: 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.


Thanks my brother.
Currently, they ( The Killers - King of the Indie Rocks ) are my best.
The day I respected them was the day the guest presenter/anchorman on an MTV Talk-Show featured Greenday & asked them who they respect most & they replied 'The Killers'. Their best track was "Bones" by "The Killers".
No artist has been able to use electronic-guitars like those guys.
What "Linkin Park" used electronic-guitar do for "What I've done" & "New Divide" from the "OST The Transformers" is just a tip of the iceberg compared to these guys.
You just need to listen to :
* "Smile like you mean it"
* "Jenny was a friend of mine"
* "On top"

Other great groups no-one mentioned was
*Blue-October
*Good Charlotte
*Simple Plan (You need to listen to their "Addicted"wink
*12 Stones
*Staind

daylae: I believe music is rock n rock is music. I dont joke with these gospel rock bands: third day,jars of clay,switchfoot,tenth avenue north,fray etc.

Also luv hoobastank,3 doors down,nickelback,and blink182.


The tone & timbre of the Third Day's lead-singer (Mac Powell) is something else.
Aaaah!, na die.

Rocktation:

Oh thanks!
Cool moniker by the way. I did like their Survival of the fittest. wink


Oh!, thanks too.
Actually, I listen to all genres & I think I'm an audiophile.
The duo happen to hold sway "Naughty by Nature" & "The Wutang Clan" as my best rappers in terms of fluidity, flows & rhymes.
"Survival of the fittest" was not even their best!
You need to sample their
"Hell on earth",
"Deadly Zone (from the OST Blade Trilogy Ft. Bounty Killers)" &
"I'm going out (Ft. Lil' Cease)".

I won't like to derail the thread.

I dis agree with you totally. When it comes to riffs on electric guitars there are three legends in rock music. One is dead and the other two are alive, namely Jimmy Hendrix, Kirk hammet of METALLICA whose mentor is Jimmy Hendrix and finally Dave mustaine of MEGADEATH. You don't wanna fauck with any of these three guys on electric guitars especially Kirk Hammet. Listen to tracks like Blitskrieg, Judas kiss, hit the lights, unforgiving 3. Man all of the songs on death magnetic are drugs.

Not forgetting Tony Iommy of Black Sabbath.
