BTW this isn't apoll. It's whoever you think is best. Doesn't necessarily have to be one of the two I mentioned.

gagagag, I can't stand Nickelback. They're one of the few bands I reaaally don't like.
So I guess out of those two, Velvet Revolver.
I don't listen to much rock, so I honestly have no idea.

Not the best, but I also like Hinder. I can't stand lips of an angel though. It got overplayed very quickly.

velvet revolver=amazing.

I love Crashdiets sound. They could easily be one of the best of today, were they a little more well known.

Hinder is nice, I really like them, but they do sound a bit too..I dunno..cookie cutter? I've heard their sound before. They're nothing new.

Nickelback is wonderful. And chad kroger has amazing hair.

I can't really say who's the best, but those are my top.

Nickelback sucks

what kind of rock are we talking/ Are we talking modern day hair bands, ro like...metal, screamo, emo...or alt...accoustic...etc.
there's so many ssible answers

suprised no one has said Daughtry

personally, I like Red Hot Chili Peppers for that title, but, whatever/

Velvot Revolver shouldn't count, its a collaboration of like Velvet Underground and and Guns And Roses. AKA, old guys playing older style music.

1) Why?
2) Any rock. Not being pickey here.
3) Same.
4) RHCP should definately get their due.
5) Why shouldn't they count? It's not like VR (which is made up mostly of GNR and STP), is covering nothing but GNR songs. They're making new material. Honestly, if you say that VR shouldn't count for those reasons, your killing off an awful lot of bands. I'm not sure you realize just how many bands today are made up of the remnents of former bands.

1. Because most of their songs are about the same thing, and their lyrics aren't good enough to make up for it. Plus the singers droning voice makes me want to stab myself.

2. Because, some people can't stand certain styles. I can't stand emo or metal

3. I don't like daughtry, but people sure did jump on his bandwagon fast

4. Yes

5. Becausem its not really a "band of today" these guys were around a long time ago. If you're gonna say "band of today" then you should stick strictly to bands that started out in the industry of today. While Velvet Revolver did technically start as a band in the industry of today, but they have been around for a while.

I think Mike is talking about bands of today, not how old the musicians are. Like Sixx:AM has Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue, but its still a band of today.

Well then that's kind of stupid because RHCP have been around for a while and yet you said they should be included.:confused3

The fact of the matter is:

Glam: Scary in a good way.

Emo: Scary in a bad way.

I agree with what you said about Nickelback and VR, Mike. Both are great bands. Nickelback just plain sounds good. And VR sounds like Guns N' Roses, which is always a good thing.

Also, Wolfmother is a pretty awesome band IMO.

06-22-2007, 02:08 PM
Um, is it bad that the only vaguely-current rock band I like and can name off the top of my head is U2? I don't really know that they would count as a band of today. :[

:scared1: They try wayyy to hard to BE Led Zeppelin...


If you get more into metal and stuff, I think mastadon and... god what's the namE?!?!?! I'm going braindead... I'll get back later... are pretty good

I love Nickleback and Daughtery, but honestly, I would consider them more of a "power pop." But that's just me.

Hinder's good, jsut not... original, I guess.
I like Green Day. A lot.


And, no a lot of Daughtery's songs do not sound the same. And two are overplayed. But those are the only ones. But whatever.

Old rock stuff? I love it. Van Halen HAS to be my FAVORITE. :love: Van Halen with David Lee Roth, not Sammy Hagar.

Babyjustrun
06-22-2007, 03:26 PM
I miss old Nickelback.
I ABSOLUTELY hate All the Right Reasons. That album makes me want to cry. The songs were okay, the first few times around, but they're overplayed. I listened to If Everyone Cared a lot after my brother bought the cd, and now like a year to a year and a half later it's only out now.
I hate artists and bands that try to make an album last forever (Nickelback and Nelly Furtado are good examples of this)

Anyways..
I like Mariana's Trench, but you guys would probably consider that emo.

Billy Talent though, is amazing.

No, they try to be like Led Zeppelin. And they do a great job. And what's wrong with being like Zeppelin?

BTW Queen is the greatest rock band that ever existed except for maybe Zeppelin. Bohemian Rhapsody FTW.

oookayyy i have nooooo idea what is going on on this board right now with all the 1337 speak and weirdness....



but anyways....


i vote for none of the above. i dont really like velvet revolver, and i think nickelback should burrrrn. i HATE nickelback. forget Canadian pride...i just HATE them. I HATE CHad Kroeger...i watched cribs with him and I wanted to VOMIT. I hate nickelback -end of rant-

i personally think the white stripes is one of the better rock bands of today.
and RHCP for SUUUUURE!
And IMO...the tragically hip and the foo fighters are the BEST rock bands of today
and i like the strokes too, though i guess that's a different type of rock from nickelback & velvet revolver.
