I would have to say Nirvana. How come no one said Jefferson Airplane?

On a slightly different, but related topic: Rock has been so awful to me for almost a decade now. Are there any good new bands out there that someone can suggest to me?


While not new bands they've only been active in the 2000s and still produce new music. Some of my favorite songs from each and the album they're from.

Avenged Sevenfold

Welcome to the Family https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGzIcLfRMcY (Nightmare, 2010)
Bat Country - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsZy3I6colo (City of Evil, 2005)
Afterlife - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdVMkIVtr9U (Avenged Sevenfold, 2007)

Rise Against

Satellite - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNv4JChWqA8 (Endgame, 2010)

I'll Follow You -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_CyK3zPigw (Amaryllis, 2012)

Ah, I forgot all about Avenged Sevenfold. Bat Country used to be one of my workout songs. I haven't heard of the other two, but I'll check them out.

Anathema also



Think for yourself, question authority

I grew up with Silverchair and A Perfect Circle.

Well they really only had one great song in "Somebody to Love",  The Rolling Stones have at least forty since their Forty Licks greatest hits album is a pretty good collection of their best songs and nobody has mentioned them yet either.



Jefferson Starship > Jefferson Airplane

If only for "Jane".

"White Rabbit" is great though.



The Cure, U2 (in the 80s), Krautrock in general

As far as mid 80s music goes you can't get much better then "We Build This City", "Sara" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now".



Pink Floyd
