ROCK MUSIC





gibsonguitarfreak
Hey, Whats up folks!! Who likes rock round here? THe ROCK that puts fire in your step? Ya, capital stuff is what i'm talking bout.

Bands like LEd Zeppelin, Metallica, Deep Purple, THe WHo, Pink FLoyd, Spoons, THe Hives, Artic Monkeys, Nirvana, George Thorogood, Atari, Strokes, Scorpions, Smiley Faces, Gorillaz, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin (again), and many more?

What other bands you guys like??????
schudder
I see several bands in there that aren't rock... Metallica (metal), Pink Floyd (too experimental and mellow to be rock imho, though good music) and Gorillaz (don't know what they are, but it's one of the most boring "bands" I've ever heard and def. not rock) come to mind...

In any case, I do like rock & metal music, it's pretty much the only kind of music that can be found in my vast music collection.
Mr Smith
My grandfather also collects rocks, although I haven't heard about the rocks that you have listed above, are you sure that they are genuine? You may have been ripped off. =/
gibsonguitarfreak
my last post was just to earn points and i jotted down any band i could think of.

THe actual bands i like are

Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Loverboy, Scorpions, The Who, Stryper, Def Leppard, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Black Crowes, and many more.

As for Gorillaz, THEY SO SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pink Floyd and Zep are cool. Tool is my favourite band, even though their last album probably wasn't up to scratch (in terms of their very high standard).

They are the reason I first picked up a guitar and started to play, cos I just wanted to play their songs. Wink

I like KISS, AC/DC, THE RAMONES, Shihad and the sex pistols, as well as many other bands.

Normally when I tell people I like KISS they start saying that they think KISS is crap, but when I ask them if they have heard any KISS songs they ushually just shrug their shoulders and make a comment about their makeup.

I dont know why so many people say KISS is crap, just because they think that the makeup is some kind of novelty, yet they have never even bothered to listen to their music.

KISS play a broard range of music, from "Beth" to "God of thunder", yet people still think they can hear only 1 song (or in some cases none) and form an opinion on that band.

Rant off...
gibsonguitarfreak
ya, KISS is pretty good. Some guy at my local guitar store is doing a kiss reunion concert here in Minneapolis. Ya, and Def Leppard and Journey are coming too! It's going to ROCK! Hey has anyone heard of the band "SPoon"??? I wonder when my guitar will break. oh ya that's a happy thought for a cloudy day. ya, like once my neck snapped off, but it didn't matter cuz the guitar was only like twenty buckaroos. not much, it sounded like crap but at least it was cheap. now i am trying to settle for a gibson les paul standard with fifties neck.

What is rock these days? How do you define rock anymore? Nowadays there are so many subgenres of music that I can't keep track of where they originated from. Emo, Screamo, hardcore, brocore, metal, black metal, death metal, nu metal, alternative rock, punk rock, punk, ska, and the list goes on.

However the one genre that I find of interest on principle alone is alternative rock, like there weren't enough ambiguous sub-genres of rock.

Does anybody know just how many genres of music there are? And if so who belongs in what genre?

P.S. I forgot to mention post rock like god speed you black emporer and Om. I actually like OM.

There is grunge rock which I think Silverchair (an Aussie Band) belongs to. Is Good Charlotte punk rock? There's pop rock too which I think I lot of the chick rockers (eg, the veronicas and Hillary duff) fall into.

hey dude you have aasked a question which is not much liked by me. But anyways i want to mention something about this rock music. I have a lecturer in my college who is very much fond of the rock music, he used to tell me to download the songs of various bands which i never know at all. But thorugh him i liked the songs and heared it. The favorite band of mine is steppenwolf and also new order. This too are my favorite. The best song is ostrich of steppenwolf and jetstream lover. This song really rocks me and it brings josh to me.

I like Rock music veru much, however, rocks are not common in hong Kong, I know rock music is very popular in foreign countries, right? Although Hong Kong Singers are not famous to sing rock songs, Hong Kong do have some famous rock band and songs. Do you have any recommendation for me to listening to the foreign rock musics?

rock is to roll, doesnt matter the kind of rock or the style...
when somebody ask me if i like rock, i dont feel free to answer "yes i like rock" because what i like is the "roll" part... so, from Johnny Cash'n roll to White Stripes'n roll i will enjoy...

Oh mannn did you just say Pink Floyd AREN'T A ROCK BAND? Shocked jesus, they're one of the most influential PROGRESSIVE rock bands of all time.

And as for Metallica not being rock- nearly all metal can be classified as rock, seeing as how its merely a more extreme version of it.


Yeah, im a rockaholic.
I cant live without rockahol.
safatech

takashiro
I prefer pop music to rock music. By the way, I guess the thread should be post in music forum.
hlavco
I like rock music, but mostly only classic rock. I'm not a fan of most of the newer stuff.
Stevezorr
I used to like classic rock, but now the only form of rock I like is progressive rock, just Rush in particular. I have moved on to thrash, speed, power and progressive metal. Smile
dougblackjr
I'm with some of you who enjoy Pink Floyd and such?

Are there any heavy music fans? August Burns Red, Chiodos, Inhale Exhale?

Anyone?

deanhills
I also like classic rock and heavy metal music. Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Santana, Journey, Queen, guitarists and artists like Brian May, Freddie Mercury, Gary Moore, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Elton John ...
poppat
As usual the older bands are the best: Led Zep, Black Sabbath, etc

I like Jet (Oz band) and I think the Zutons have done a few great rock tracks, but are essentially pop.

For me AC/DC rock the most.

Story of the Year, Four Year Strong, Lostprophets, Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday, sevendust, new found glory.

dbershevits
I like classic rock, and basicly any type of rock.
jwellsy
I am tired of all the 40 year old rock music.
I prefer newer alternative rock or college music,
stuff that has never been in the top 20 played to death bubblegum lists.

I'm a fan of just about all music (but country)... and my problem with answering a questions like 'name some good rock bands' is:

What counts as rock? Genres are so blended now-a-days. It's quite impossible for the most part to categorize most bands and artists... So i just go with the easier answer of I like it all...

I am with you on that one. I love mostly every type of music, I just don't like country to much and that goes for jazz as well. If you notice from my list of music I am more of a rock & metal type of guy.
poppat
I love ACDC. Angus Young is the greatest guitarist in the world and Bon Scott had the best voice before he tragically died. Those were the days I would love to go back to purely to experience the first time I heard 'Whole Lotta Rosie' again (LP If You Want Blood You've Got It).

I was a BIG fan of silverchair-"I am a freak of nature..." "In the year of 2000" They were not bad those days.
Battle_Off
I find the newer rock to be to much like Metal.

And Im not a big fan of metal.

I like Meatloaf, though that is more rock n roll.

I have recently discovered a group from the 60s and 70s, called ELO, the electric Light Orchestra, If you are a fan of old school rock, that is the band to listen to

I agree both of you. I couldn't say it better.

Gotta stick with the classics, Bob Seger, Alman Brothers, .....Steppenwolf!
kriszara
I love classic rock!
All time favorite is Queen, my biggest regret is never seeing them live-in-concert.
For vocals there is Triumph, Styx, Journey, Meatloaf
For gettin' up and moving there is Southern-Fried rock - CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd
For raw power there is Zeppelin and The Who
Then came the 80's and the hair bands, some of which could actually play - Motley Crue, Van Halen, Guns N Roses,
Hard Rock and Metal - Iron Maiden, Sabbath, Ozzy, Metallica,
I occassionally get surprised by new bands, digging Nickelback right now.

Knightly Games has great deals on comics and games.
jessicawalker
I think I'm mostly into the indie type of music. I love Bright Eyes, Iron and Wine, Wilco, Death Cab, Postal Service, Feist, Bon Iver, Cursive, Animal Liberation Orchestra, Matt Costa, The Mars Volta, The Shins, MGMT... You know.

But when it comes to rock, here are some bands I love (that I consider to be more of the rock persuasion): Tool, Primus, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Audioslave, Stone Temple Pilots, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, At the Drive In, The Raconteurs, Foo Fighters, and many more...
