K, I'm tired of most of the modern band request threads, most of them seem out of touch with my generation entirely. So as someone who grew up on Floyd, zep, doors, hendrix and 90's music, I figured why not make a modern band request thread to show I'm not completely out of touch.
The mars volta - I feel this band deserves an album dlc, b/c alot of there music doesn't fit right in the singles category. Lvia lviaquiz(or whatever) in guitar hero is good, but it starts out blarin, much better song in the album context.
Modest Mouse - I want this song for vocals alone
I realize they've been around for a bit, but only gotten mainstream notice in the last 5 years or so.
Beck - again, he's been around since the 90's but he is still releasing music and alot of it is better than his earlier stuff, hard to top loser though. I love the information album.
Muse - When I first heard them, I thought Radiohead ripoffs, but they have a bit of a heavier edge too them than radiohead. They have some good songs.
Queens of the Stoneage - Well being a huge Kyuss fan I was listening to these guys since Rated R released. I think Josh Homme is one of the great musicians of our time.
That's all I got for now, classic rockers, feel free to add your modern band picks.
