sound so over produced that they sound way more poppy than 'real' rock like black sabbath grin

sort of girly rock

I like 30 seconds to mars but I agree, you can't beat Black Sabbath (and Deep Purple, early Whitesnake etc).

blink 182
30 seconds to mars
all manner of other crud but the names escape me...

The only "modern" rockers I give respect to would be Green Day and the Foo Fighters. They sound meaty.

Green Day...

Billie Joe....

wanders away with fantasies of one day being his....... grin

That's not rock. It's barely music in my book!
Second for the Foo's here.

PersonalClown Fri 10-Jun-11 19:29:01

But Jared's so pretty to look at!!
I like 30STM and Pendulum (they do some fab remixes)

I like my guys tattooed and loud!

ForeverNamechanging Fri 10-Jun-11 19:32:15

All the boys look like girls

I do love the mighty Foo and Dave Ghrol- gah i would do unspeakable things to that man

PersonalClown Fri 10-Jun-11 19:34:05

For us Foo fans here....

Pure Awesome!!

Paschaelina Fri 10-Jun-11 19:37:04

I do Foo. I also do 30stm and Pendulum. Green day are the best.

I call all of it "puss rock". I think because I'm old (42) nothing compares to old school rock and metal. There's nothing like 60's rock and 80's US punk and metal. I do have a bit of a soft spot for some of this new shite but not much. I can cope with Linkin Park and a few others but Metallica, Sabbath and Godsmack are soooo much better. I've already got the little lad boppin' away to it all!

squeakytoy Fri 10-Jun-11 20:40:24

42 is NOT old....

Green Day are the same age as us!!

I have recently discovered Avenged Sevenfold and they are brilliant. Dear God and Seize the Day are both excellent tunes..

We like the Foos so much we have a Mii on our Wii that looks like Dave Grohl. Ds (8) says 'Hi Dave Grohl' everytime he sees it. grin
Agree with your opinion on all these new fangled ne'er do wells though!

PersonalClown Fri 10-Jun-11 20:43:22

YAY!! An A7X convert!!
Me and Shoesy are BIG fans.

Although if you watch So Far Away, you may cry.

I must confess, I do like my emo (Saves The Day, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Matchbook Romance)

But 30STM do feel too poppy for my liking. The first album (before they got famous) was ok, though. The second album, bearable. The third... SHOITE!

Oh, and if anyone confesses to being a Fall Out Boy fan, they need shooting.

(After the emo confession, do I regain credability if I mention my dog was named after Rob Flynn of Machine Head, and my son is named after Dimebag Darrell of Pantera/Damageplan (rip))

PersonalClown Fri 10-Jun-11 20:45:13

My dogs are Synyster and Shadows after the great men of Sevenfold!

Paschaelina Fri 10-Jun-11 20:45:32

I liked Fall Out Boy thankyouverymuch. Loud and singy in the car.

marsgirl Fri 10-Jun-11 20:46:58

I love 30stm - all i can say is that there is nothing tame or poppy about their gigs and I got the bruises to prove it ( so worth it)

Have also been converted to the joy that is AX7.

FreudianSlipper Fri 10-Jun-11 20:47:48

I love Gomez they are so underrated there debut album is on e of the best ever

CurlyBoy Fri 10-Jun-11 20:48:13

I have recently downloaded ONE Fallout boy song.

I should have mentioned before that of course the greatest band of all time is Tenacious D.

DontCallMePeanut Fri 10-Jun-11 20:50:41

<<loads water pistol and aims at Paschelina>>

Try taking back sunday... VERY singy...

Marsgirl Is that where you got the username from, perchance?

PersonalClown Fri 10-Jun-11 20:51:09

For all the new A7X converts

Get the tissues ready.

southeastastra Fri 10-Jun-11 20:51:20

gomez are old though, i mean the make up type bands with full orchestral backing soundtracks.

Paschaelina Fri 10-Jun-11 20:54:23

Sounds like my brothers rubbish pub band...


DontCallMePeanut Fri 10-Jun-11 20:56:28

Oh my, PersonalClown, I'm bawling my eyes out... I forgot how sad that song is. RIP The Rev...

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Fri 10-Jun-11 20:56:44

Yeah, but there's always been your poppy sing-a-long-a rock lite, for ladies or those of a nervous disposition. Bon Jovi anyone? Poison?

30STM won a fair bit at the Kerrang! awards this week, so someone out there must like them.

(I rather like FOB, like Paschaelina says, everyone needs something to sing along to in the car on a sunny day...! Gave up being embarrassed about my musical taste some time ago grin)
