    I do miss Audioslave, I liked a couple of their songs, RHCP is great, and I like Queens of the Stone Age... Incubus too.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    Audioslave are still around. Although recent stuff is not as good as the earlier stuff.
    Soundgarden split up

    I love RHCP's earlier stuff but their very recent stuff is not so good.

    Incubus are great

    Oh and Jakko put John Mayer as an example earlier but I really dont think you could categorize him as rock music atall, he is more like pop with an edge lol

    How about Muse? I think their music is pretty good. I really like some of their songs, like Stockholm Syndrome.

    And Incubus rocks!

    Incubus rocks(can't say I like their politics, though, well, actually most of these guys'), I especially like:

    Oasis is good, but I think most of their best stuff is actually what they are not famous for...

    Pearl Jam and Bush are both great!

    Mudvayne, I am different from most people, I like their newer, lighter(in comparison) music. In my opinion, there is a big difference between "rock," and "strange incoherency/screaming(coincidentally, that, on the opposite end of the spectrum, is why I loathe Coldplay, they make no sense, just weird crap)":

    Of course all of the Weezer Blue Album.

    311 is good.

    It's not just the last two years. Rock music fell apart a long time ago. Good stuff's been pretty scarce since the early 90's. Though, judging from the recommendations which some people have posted here, I can see that not everyone would agree with that.

    True Rock has been watered down a hell of a lot from what it used to be. We had that surge of boy bands/girl bands in the mid-90's, and since then the music industry never really seemed to recover. Some of the older bands are still sticking it out and doing a fair trade of it, but there are very few new bands which have come along and managed to do much.

    Far too many of these new "hard" guys need a good slap. Bet they'd cry.

    In John Mayer's defense, he isn't really trying to be rock. He's a jazz guitarist at heart, and if you watch actual videos of him, he really is an incredible guitarist.

    But yeah, rock as a whole has pretty much had it's penis tied to a little rope, the other end of which is being held by some big corporation that has no real interest in music. RHCP are great, admittedly, for one. A few pretty good bands have recently been riding out of England on huge waves of promotion. Arctic Monkeys, the View, the Kooks, aren't half bad. Decemberists are a pretty good band, but really too literary to be fully enjoyed by rock purists.

    These days I'm finding that I need to turn to alternative genres for good music. There are some incredible ska and reggae bands touring these days, from Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto to the Mad Caddies and Pepper. And if you want more like, pretty chill rock with definate roots in the reggae, which I'm guessing you have some respect for since you put 311 in that list, you could give a listen to State Radio, Dispatch, OAR or Guster. There are still some alright punk bands, (Dropkick Murphys comes to mind)...

    But yeah. If you want some stuff that's pretty traditional rock, check out Art Brut. They're pretty British, and they're kind of amusing in their own twisted way. Give em a listen.

    And yeah. If you're into anything I've mentioned here, I could prolly give you a few more leads from there.

    It is true about what you said. Stupid big coop, only wants money. Can't believe that ppl even fall for these "new music". It seems that there will never be another Beatles or Jimi Hendrix again (John Frusciante of RHCP comes pretty close with his recent works - outside of RHCP).

    On my playlist, there are only oldies these days (Listening to Led Zep's HEARTBREAK - one of the best guitar solo ever)

    btw - John Mayer is Blues not Jazz I believe. I just read last month's cover story of Rolling Stone Mag. John Mayer, Derek Trucks and John Frusciante were on it. It says JM's style is more of blues/rock/Pop. IMO JM doesn't deserve to be at the center of the cover page - should be either Trucks or Frusciante.

    While a fully agree that rock in the mainstream is bullshit now there are a couple of bands that still demonstrate rock in a fashion. Beck, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool; these are a couple of them.
    Jakko, you mentioned two of Seattle's four legendary grunge bands which I have to commend you on. However, I have always found Nirvana and especially Alice in Chains to be better than either Soundgarden or Pearl Jam.
