First of all, great list, nearly all the music I listen to and mostly excellent choices.

I'm gonna suggest Feeder, from the list you'd probably like Polythene(their debut) the most, but all their albums are good. They also have a new album coming out in june.

I'll go with a few suggestions:

1) , steady as she goes, by the raconteurs (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZYQr3Ivg6w&feature=related)(lead singer is Jack white of the white stripes)

2) burning beard, by Clutch (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-s7P6s0YXGk), mainly cos i recommend clutch to everyone i meet. they write some really, really weird lyrics.
Kn
3)Knights of Cydonia, by Muse, (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jV1bRfLHA3A) One of the most overblown songs i know and a absolute blast, with a good music video. here (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=inW91qRDGwI)is thier cover of Nina Simones 'feelin good.
4) Slither (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Vewm5l-i-yw)and She Builds Quick Machines (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YwJhQnt34m0&feature=related), velvet revolver. The band is basically one that Slash put together after he left Guns n Roses. it's made of win.

Alright, all 6 bands posted by Semidi Oregano have been written down on a list to listen to. Storm Bringer, a few things.

1) I hate the White Stripes. HATE. I only like Seven Nation Army, and that's the only song I have.
2) Clutch, alright. *Writes down*
3) I actually own the Black Holes and Revelations album, so I already have Knights.
4) I already have both those songs, along with a few other VR ones.

Not a fan of Dire Straits, but I'll give Blur a listen.

I've heard Rainbow, and they're alright. never heard Blackmore's Night, I'll give them a listen.

What albums of Red Hot Chili Peppers do you have?
Right now I'm listening to some Queensryche, and they're pretty darn good. And it looks as if we have the same musical taste. You might want to check them out.

Based on the bands you marked as favorites, I'd suggest Wolfmother.

You seem to be missing The Sex Pistols.

I'd also suggest taking a listen to Desert Sessions (some combination of QotSA and other random members... maybe pre-dated QotSA)

For some nice change-up you could grab some Ani DiFranco.

I also am a fan of older Nine Inch Nails when I feel angry. (pre-downward spiral)

Kansas is really good.
So is Flogging Molly, but it's Irish Rock, and I know some people don't like that so much.

Raistlin1040
2008-05-04, 08:57 PM
Uh, I can't stand the Sex Pistols. NIN, I know I need to get some of. Flogging Molly, meh. Kansas, meh.

*Writes Desert Sessions and Ani DeFranco down*

Based on your starred bands, which seem to veer towards post-70s classic rock with a twist of weird, I recommend giving T-Rex and The New York Dolls a try. The Scissor Sisters are MTV-Generation versions of the same. You also might like some Sonic Youth, I recommend starting with the album Dirty or Experimental Jet Set No Star (or something like that).
