In the search of true Rock 'n Roll
Topic says it all
Something similiar to AC/DC, hurriganes, T.Rex, Chuck berry. (EWW! I hate the youtube quality!! but atleast you get the idea what kind of music I'm searching for.)
Something that kinda sounds like good old rock 'n roll.
NOTE!: don't suggest me band's like green day, queen of the stone age, Guns 'n Roses, nirvana, ect (they might be great but they're not the kind of music I'm looking for right now and I know/got their albums already) and dear god, no japanese/headbang crap!! (digi, just stay the hell away!)
Band names would be nice (preferably ones that I can find from youtube and hear out if it's something I'm trying to find right now but I can search for their songs from somewhere so youtube is not necessary) and if someone upload's.. I don't mind dl'ing and trying it out.
Jerry Lee Lewis.
Bill Haley and His Comets.
Judas Priest. Yes, i know It's heavier, but they have lots of rock n' roll like material. (Rocka Rolla, Living After Midnight, United, etc... are good examples.)
Twisted Sister. Anything... really.
Try Uriah Heep too. I haven't heard them too much, but check them out. Maybe they are what you want too.
Hope that helps.
Led zeppelin, old era ZZ top is pretty good too, little richard, Buddy Holly, The Yardbirds and some of the rockier Queen songs lke Now I'm here, Headlong etc.
thats all i can come up with for now off the top of my head
Led zeppelin, Judas Priest, Twisted sisters, ZZ top, queen, I got many of their albums already and they're great. ^^
Everything else you both mentioned are awesome, how could I had forgotten Jerry? I think I even saw a movie about him, I'm gona try find everything mentioned. (except buddy holly and the yardbirds, dunno, just doesn't get me off)
Keep them coming!

I guessing you have heard Iron Maiden?
What about, Jim Morrison? Jimi Hendrix? Pink Floyd? Prince? The Sex Pistols? The Doors? Queen? Pearl Jam? R.E.M.? Maybe KISS =/ ?
I know them all (wtf, I'm missing Jimi Hendrix from my HD's.. strange, will fix that now) but almost none of them fits in what I'm trying to search for. (except Hendrix but still, I got couple albums of almost all you just listed except prince, Morrison, Pearl jam)
Maiden's more heavy.
Sex pistols.. isn't that a punk band? I got couple of their albums but never listened.
The door's never really got me off (I got couple of their albums though) dunno.. it's kinda weird.
Pink floyd.. uh, it sure has great guitars but the music style.. I'm not sure if it's rock, it's.. very odd, something you'd listen when you're sick and it'd make sense, ahhahhah.
KISS is great, though it's hard to find some albums, I got already quite many.
Peal Jam HAHHAH, sorry but I can't really help than think of Keanu Reeves in the first few seconds! not what I'm looking for though.
and wtf, prince? isn't he like a michael jackson clone or something? :d
Thanks for trying anyway.
Well, if you don't mind heavier stuff (it still has that "let's rock!" feeling), i'd recommend:
Armored Saint (March of the Saint)
Jag Panzer. Um... dunno. Try Chain of Command.
^They are on the spirits of Judas Priest's Electric Eye.
There was this chick too... Janis Joplin.
Alot of Pink Floyd's stuff is in the experimental rock genre, but they do have some great songs which are easier to appreciate like comfortably numb, shine on you crazy diamond and high hopes
Lynrd Skynrd is good too, but you might not like southern
The Doobie Brothers?
Neil Young's rocking in the free world album is good, very different from his usual country stuff
David Bowie in the Ziggy Stardust era is awesome as well
Deep Purple (trust me, most of their music isn't at all like Smoke in the Water) Kansas, Foghat, Allman Brothers, Crosby stills and Nash, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Foreigner, Styx, Boston, The Who...
For more unknown goodies try Yes, Dream Theater, Genesis, Rush, Porcupine Tree, Nazereth, Guess Who, Golden Earing, Bob Seger, Blue Oyster Cult, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Richie Havens.
The Stooges, Tom Waits, The Zombies, Neil Young, Joe Jackson, Cream, The Smiths, The Velvet Underground
Just sort of general suggestions that I didn't see listed, they sort of fit the style I think you were talking about.
