Comments about Nirvana ranked number 1 on http://www.thetoptens.com/

The best grunge band ever.30seconds to mars is good but can’t compare to nirvana. Smells like teen spirit, breed, school etc best song ever made in 90’s

+3 nirvana invented grunge,
without them there would be not 30stm and if there were there music would be nothing like it is now.
nirvanas music means something. it has emotion, and kurt cobain expressed his depression through his music. 30stm music means nothing, its just words that rhyme and music. although I do like 30stm but there music has no soul. nirvana had great vocals, great guitars, and amazing drums. they were one of the greatest bands of all times. THEY WERE THE BEATLES OF GRUNGE.

+1 It is quite obvious that nirvana is the best in this. As for those complaining about thirty seconds to mars just remember the singer may be obnoxious, and loud, but than again that is what most grudge is these days. They still suck though. The one I don’t understand being on this list is linkin park. Grudge itself is supposed to be loud music, but linkin park has nothing to do with that. Its just a mixture of rap alternative rock, and classic justin bieber suck.

Are you kidding? Three days grace? 30 seconds to mars? Don’t you want to put tokio hotel too? Is the only douche-band whos left. For gods sake, they are not grunge or alternarive roxk bands! Some of they are not even bands! Other thing that piss me off is that in a best rock band list someone put the beatles. THEY ARE NOT ROCK! They’re ARE POP! ROCK IS LED ZEPPELIN AND ROLLING STONES, THE WHO, PINK FLOYD, THE DOORS OR AEROSMITH! LEARN PEOPLE..

+5 Although 30 Seconds To Mars are my top band, Nirvana created the genre. 30STM aren’t even Grunge, maybe 10% Grunge. 30STM = 40% Progressive/Alternative Metal, 10% Grunge, 50% Hard Rock. Nirvana are 95% Grunge.

Nirvana is amazing! Kurt cobains EPIC vocals and guitar with the aid of dave grohls epic drumming and krist novoselic’s awesome bass skills give the band a perfect sound! 30 seconds to mars sucks! They are an insult to alternative rock, they are not even close to being on par with nirvana! They should not be ahead of bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden!

+4 Nirvana is one of the best bands of all time…! And for sure the best in this category… 30 sec to mars nowhere near it…
Nirvana achieved its greatness in a span of just 4-5 years… 30 sec to mars haven’t achievd even 1/10th of it in 9 years!
NIRVANA=100% ORIGINAL…

Nirvana is one of te best bands of all time! Lithium, Dumb, Come as you are, smells like teen spirit! Just to name a few epic songs! 30 seconds to mars is a terrible band I have no idea how anyone could like them! They don’t compare to nirvana in any way!

-1 30 seconds to mars? Sorry never heard of them. The kings of grunge Kurt Cobain and Dave grohl they created the freaking genera. 30 seconds to mars I just listened to one of their songs they are not even grunge they sound like a boy band that justin beiber would listen to.

+1 30 Seconds to Mars?!?! Nirvana is the common denominator of Grunge! Kurt Cobain is one of the best singers and guitarist of the history of Rock! Jared Leto can’t compete with Kurt!

Nirvana isn’t first!?! There’s something wrong here… It’s disturbing, very disturbing.. 30 seconds to mars is an ok band, but honestly they shouldn’t even be in the top ten let alone first.

Nirvana is the god of all alternative/grunge bands ever. Kurt is such a inspiration to a lot of bands today. Their music will always be around and well known for their music.
True grunge music! This band captured and expressed the emotion of a broken and lost generation. 30 Seconds To Mars? Isn’t that some kind of emo pop garbage?

An amazing band that’ll never be seen again by the same standards as they were in their prime. Simply the best grunge band of all time with no doubt.

Nirvana should be at first… No body could compare this band.30 seconds to mars are also good but nirvana is just the the best. Rip kurt

The New Alternative: 10 Bands Rocking the Indie Scene

22 Jul

Today’s alternative rock sounds little like the ‘80s and ‘90s sounds on which the genre was based. From Imagine Dragons to Muse, check out 10 bands topping the alternative radio charts and redefining what it means to be indie.

What do you think of the “new alternative” scene? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below!

Atlas Genius

Atlas Genius

Australian indie rockers Altas Genius were thrust into the spotlight last year thanks to their chart-topping tune “Trojans,” which proves a simple drum beat and guitar pattern can go a long way. The band only has an EP out thus far, Through the Glass, so expect a full album soon.

The Black Keys

The Black Keys

When the Black Keys first came on the scene in the early ‘00s, people wrote them off as a White Stripes rip-off. But as the years rolled on, it became obvious this Akron, Ohio-based duo has its own unique blues-rock sound and style. Now, the Keys are one of the most recognized alt-rock bands of the era, and their latest single “Little Black Submarines” is one of the most played songs of the moment.

Fun

Fun

The guys of Fun have done darn well for a band with a really weird way of stylizing their name (fun.). Fun is up for a whopping six Grammy Awards this year. The band’s latest album, Some Nights, is filled with dramatic strings, colorful horns, keyboards, layered vocals and programmed drums.

Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons

Las Vegas-based indie rockers Imagine Dragons first inched their way onto the Top 10 on the alternative chart with last year’s “It’s Time”– a folk-y, melodic ditty, with plenty of space and mid-tempo action. Now, the guys are back at it with “Radioactive,” which might surpass “It’s Time” in airplay. The song features the band’s catchy electronic stylings and new wave textures.

The Lumineers

The Lumineers

Mix Mumford & Sons’ neo-folk stylings with Raine Maida from Our Lady Peace’s raw vocals, and you’ve got the Lumineers. The band is nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy this year, largely thanks to their runaway alternative hit, “Ho Hey.”

Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons

Is it folk? Is it Americana? Nobody really knows how to define Mumford & Sons’ sound, but that doesn’t really matter, because people are certainly digging the band’s music. Mumford & Sons’ latest album, 2012’s Babel, was the No. 1 rock album of last year. The band’s current single, “I Will Wait,” is being spun heavily on alternative radio.

Muse

Muse

English rock trio Muse are one of the champions of the new alternative scene. Brining a pop-oriented mix of progressive rock, electronica and noise, the guys’ latest album, 2012’s The 2nd Law, topped the charts. Their debut single off the release, “Madness,” is currently No. 1 on Nielsen’s Alternative Rock Radio chart.

Of Monsters and Men

Atlas Genius

Hailing from Iceland, the six-piece chamber pop outfit known as Of Monsters and Men bring a unique blend of intricate indie folk and sweeping Celtic rock. Their latest hit, “Monster Sound,” can be found on the band’s debut full-length, 2012’s My Head is an Animal.

Passion Pit

>Passion Pit

Boston, Mass.-based Passion Pit craft high-energy, near-giddy alternative pop-rock tracks with plenty of, er, passion! The band’s new album, Gossamer, features a popular tune you may have heard a few times on the radio or online: “Take a Walk.”

Silversun Pickups

Silversun Pickups

Silversun Pickups got their big break, so to speak, opening for Muse at North American arenas in 2010. The group quickly won fans over with their intricate mix of dream pop and alternative rock. “Panic Switch” is one of their best-known tracks, but the trio’s latest single, “The Pit,” is also proving popular on the charts.

10 MOST ANTICIPATED 2013 ROCK ALBUMS

22 Nov

As good this year has been, we’re really looking forward to next year and have compiled our list of the 10 Most Anticipated Rock Albums of 2013. There’s a lot of big names expecting to drop some fresh sounds in the new year, and we can’t wait to see what comes out. While we anticipate these acts providing new music, we can’t guarantee every one of these albums will hit store shelves in 2013. For instance, Metallicawould have obviously been on this list had Lars Ulrich not claimed in a recent interview that he thought 2014 was more likely. There’s also the potential for Foo FightersAvenged Sevenfold, and Slipknot to be part of this list should they decide to return to the studio, but since nothing’s confirmed as of yet, we’ll hold them out. So let’s take a peek ahead and see what acts have the 10 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013:

Mary Oullette, SheWillShootYou.com
10

Motley Crue

Since when is ‘Sex’ the foreplay? The answer is when you’re Motley Crue. The band teased audiences this summer with a new track while they toured with Kiss, but the idea is that more music will follow in 2013. There’s been plenty of speculation over the last few years how long the band will stick with the album format, and they might be higher on this list had band members not recently hinted that we may get an EP instead of a full disc. Time will tell, but we anxiously await the results.

Device

The name might not be as familiar as the other acts on this list, but withDisturbed frontman David Draiman fronting the group and Filter‘s Geno Lenardo on guitar, the pedigree is there. With Disturbed on hiatus, Devicestarted recording in June. Draiman, in his trademark all-caps Twitter posts, has described Device as a more industrial-sounding outfit in the vein of early Nine Inch Nails and Ministry. Should be interesting.

Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie has discussed how much he loves his current lineup, so that makes his next release one of the most highly anticipated discs of 2013. Zombie continues to try to balance his film and music careers, and with ‘Lords of Salem’ in the can, he can now focus on his next studio record. Zombie stated in an interview that he has three objectives – “dark, heavy and weird” – and would like to stick with that idea, with songs that don’t fit the description being tossed aside. So get ready for some more rock mayhem from Zombie and his band.

Facebook: Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam

Last year was one of reflection for Pearl Jam, as 20th anniversary release for the ‘Ten’ album, a book, a film, and even their own festival filled the docket. But by years end, the group had amassed quite a bit of material behind the scenes. Drummer Matt Cameron recently stated that he was recording his drum parts prior to leaving for a Soundgarden tour in November, leading to speculation the disc was almost done. With 2009’s ‘Backspacer,’ the band saw a creative rebound, so their next disc comes with a lot of anticipation.

Queens of the Stone Age

Where have you been Josh Homme? It’s been six long years sinceQueens of the Stone Age‘s ‘Era Vulgaris,’ with the band Them Crooked Vultures, family time and a near-death experience taking up the time since then. That’s a lot of life lived, which could make the next Queens of the Stone Age album one of the most intriguing yet. After scrapping some early attempts, the band began recording in earnest in August and a disc should surface next year.

Mary Oullette, SheWillShootYou.com
5

Judas Priest

Judas Priest‘s next effort definitely has to fall among the 10 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013. It’s been a time of transition for the band, who said farewell to K.K. Downing and hello to Richie Faulkner. The new guitarist has reportedly rejuvenated the band and the members have discussed their enthusiasm for recording their next effort with Faulkner as part of the writing process for the first time. Singer Rob Halford said early demos harken back to Priest’s classic sound.

Alice in Chains

After the successful 2009 return of Alice in Chains, there’s no doubt that their follow-up will be one of the most anticipated albums of 2013. While it may seem like some time has passed between albums, guitarist Jerry Cantrell revealed that bone spurs and cartilage issues initially kept him from proceeding early on, but by late 2011 the group had finally started in on their next disc.

Tool Dissectional
3

Tool

It’s Maynard James Keenan‘s world, and whichever of his three bands strikes his fancy at the time is typically what we get. Having focused on getting Puscifer off the ground in recent years and doing a tour with A Perfect Circle, it appears that Tool is back on the schedule. In 2010, the band members had started writing for their next record, both with and without Keenan. By May of this year, drummer Danny Carey discussed having the framework for five songs with more studio time expected in the summer and an eye toward a late 2012 finish. Whenever it arrives, fans won’t treat the disc merely as a new album, but as an event.

Black Sabbath

2011 brought the announcement that the original Black Sabbath lineup had reunited and were planning a new record. 2012 had its share of setbacks (Tony Iommi‘s cancer treatment, Bill Ward’s contract dispute), but the legendary band has soldiered on. Iommi continued to write with the members through his chemotherapy treatments and Ozzy Osbournestated in June that they had 15 songs already penned. Not long after their Lollapalooza set, the group returned to the studio, so everything appears to be on track for Black Sabbath releasing one of the most anticipated albums of 2013.

Nine Inch Nails

He’s been dominating the movie soundtrack scene for the past few years, but rock fans have missed Trent Reznor. Apparently, the Nine Inch Nails mastermind has missed his band, too, as he’s ready to fly with new NIN material. Reznor stated in an interview earlier this year that he would devote much of 2012 to writing new tunes for Nine Inch Nails. Meanwhile, his other project How to Destroy Angels, are also set to release their first full-length album, but it’s a new NIN album that fans are truly salivating over.

It seems to make you end up either on the verge of buying music before you have even sample the best new song releases. It’s hard just to find a straight up list of new rock songs for 2012 and 2013so you can add fresh and worthy music to your library. Read on and you will get the top eight best rock songs for 2012 and 2013 that I believe are well worth adding to anyone looking for a straight list of best rocks songs that are the most popular.

The songs are in no particular order they are just 8 great new song releases to add to your growing music collection while keeping the worthless music out of your music library. This way you can just get a straight free list of the best rocks songs for 2012 and 2013, and you can sample them or possibly buy the album on your time. The list of new rock songs for 2012 is here to give you an idea of new bands and new songs that are popular and worth a listen. If you like what you see leave feedback.

 

1. The Offspring – “Days Go By”

“Days Go By” is The Offspring’s ninth studio album from the punk rock bank. This is a main single as well as the title of the album and is came out June 26, 2012 and was produced by Bob Rock. Even though The Offspring has been around a long time is was their new drummer’s Pete Parada first appearance since joining a year before the last album. This is a great song for my readers out there that are into the old Offspring punk sound. A good Goldfinger, NoFx, and Rancid sound to the track but the album overall mostly. That`s my opinion decide for yourself and leave some feedback on what you think.

2. Shinedown – “Unity”

“Unity” comes off Shinedown’s fourth studio album and was official the beginning of January in 2012. The song “Unity” was released as a single by the band on March 12th. The track “Unity” comes off Shinedowns album called “Amaryllis.” The track top the charts in 2012 and is a solid song to add to any rock or alternative songs when you want new song releases. Shinedown has some of the best rock songs ever and have a substantial part in my music library.

3. Five Finger Death Punch – “Coming Down”

“Coming Down” is a single off the popular “American Capitalist” album by Five Finger Death Punch. Personally I liked the album a lot but many of the more common Five Finger Death Punch fans are saying its a boring album and not nearly as good as previous albums. Some of the other better songs off of the American Capitalist album are “The Pride”,”Under and Over it”, and “Back for More.”


4. Volbeat – “Still Counting”

“Still Counting” by Volbeat is one of the most popular rock songs at the moment and is at the top of the new singles for 2012 in rock music. Volbeat’s whole album is worth buying and listening to it’s called “Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood.” Volbeat is a Danish band and this is their third studio album. “Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood” is a follow up to their very popular album“Rock The Rebel/Metal The Devil.” That album made them very popular outside their home country and spread through Europe and then all over the world. This is definitely a great band to check out and add to your music library and will help you in your search for new rock songs for 2012 and 2013.

5. Linkin Park – “Burn It Down”

“Burn It Down” came off of Linkin Park’s fifth studio album called “Living Things” and was the first new single they released off the album. If you are looking for the best new rock songs for 2012 and 2013 you are for sure going to have some Linkin Park involved in that library. Their album“Living Things” has multiple great songs on it and is a totally different sounding Linkin Park if you are used to their sound. This song as well as the album are unique because most of the album was produced by the famous Rick Rubin, who also was apart of “A Thousand Suns” and “Minutes to Midnight,” which were award winning albums from Linkin Park. Therefore if you liked the sound of those 2 albums you will be greatly into their new singles for 2012 and 2013.

6. Slash Ft Myles Kenndy and the Conspirators – “You’re a Lie”

Slash’s latest album called “Apocalyptic Love” came out on May 22, 2012, along with that came the new single for 2012 called “You’re a Lie.” Slash was impressed with Myles Kennedy’s lyrics and asked him to be the front for Slash’s touring band. Myles Kennedy is still the front man for Alter Bridge and Slash is also still the guitarist for Velvet Revolver which are apparently still a band. Some of the lyrics off the album refer back to the problems Myles Kennedy has had over the years with his battle against drugs. The album was produced by Eric Valentine and the touring band which later became known as Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The Conspirators are two Canadian rockers which are drummer Brent Fitz and the bassist Todd Kerns. The new single “You’re A Lie” is one of the hottest new rock songs in 2012 right now and is at the top of the charts. The band says this new single barely made it to the album, well luckily it did because it’s one of the most popular new rock songs out right now.

7. Foo Fighters – “These Days”

These Days is a new single from the Foo Fighters off their album “Wasting Light”, which is their seventh studio album as a band. These Days was actually not the first single off the album but the third, however its my favorite song off the album, therefore I think its worthy enough to make my list of new rock songs for 2012.


8. The Black Keys – “Gold On The Ceiling”

The Black Keys released their seventh album called “El Camino in 2011″ but they are now touring so songs are peaking in popularity as new singles in 2012 and 2013 as some of the best new rock songs. The Black Keys have been around a little over a decade and are out of Akron, Ohio. They started by growing their underground popularity and dedicated fans into one of the most popular bands in the country. Their new singles for 2012 are “Gold On The Ceiling” and “Lonely Boy.”

Who Killed Rock and Roll: Is Rock and Roll Dead In The Modern Day?

22 Nov

            Rock and Roll was a musical genre born from the ashes of American Blues with Bill Haley’s “Rock Around The Clock” arguably being the first song to establish the genre officially. Combining the styles of blues, country, gospel, and jazz; rock and roll took flight in the 1950’s. Known as the ‘white man’s’ blues; rock and roll soared to popularity with artists such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash etc…  With such popularity, came excess, shock, sexual expression and groundbreaking cultural revolutions that cemented the genre as the permanent enemy of parents all over the world. Yet, today’s Rock music seems to not only be best friends with most parents; even worse, it has sort of just become completely irrelevant, repetitious, predictable, and faked. A quick look at the Billboard 200 is all you need to realize that new rock music doesn’t sell anymore (with the exception of veteran acts). Clearly there is a market for the genre considering some of the highest grossing tours are dominated with rock bands like U2, The Rolling Stones, and AC/DC taking the top 3 spots for the last 7 years according to Pollstar’s “Top 50 Worldwide Concert Tours”. However, there are no new rock giants to take the mantle from their predecessors. You may be asking yourself “Who killed Rock and Roll?” and the answer is a mixture of the record giants, the fans, and the artists themselves. Furthermore, the more important question is not ‘who’, but ‘when’ did Rock and Roll die.

Ellen Goodman stated in a 1980’s column, rock ratings:  The outrageous edge of rock and roll has shifted its focus from Elvis’s pelvis to the saw protruding from Blackie Lawless’s codpiece on a WASP album. Rock lyrics have turned from “I can’t get no satisfaction” to “I am going to force you at gunpoint to eat me alive.”

Personally, I believe the 1980’s was the last decade of great Rock music. Shock factor, public reaction, and crazy stage presence was important but the bands had the songs and the music was, although evolved, still very connected to the African American blues roots of the 1950’s Rock and Roll. Arguably, I’d say Rock and Roll died in the early/mid 1990’s. The 1990’s became festered with politically correct, greasy, yarling grunge rockers who weren’t interested in the full Rock star package. Bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and the rest of the Seattle movement were not interested in the larger than life rock spectacle (which dated back to the 1950’s). Instead they decided to get on stage dressed like the homeless, and their music was a depressing reflection of their ‘image’.

            The grunge movement was a reaction toward the 1980’s Hair Metal explosion. Although Hair Metal started off great, the market became oversaturated with bands both amazing and terrible that the Record industry spat out by the 100’s. It was only natural that at the height of Rock music’s popularity there would be a steep decline right around the corner. The fans became sick and tired of the continuous watering down of Hair Metal perpetrated by the record companies and the larger than life attitude/lifestyle of the bands. Essentially, Grunge was not simply rebelling against Hair Metal, it was rebelling against the heightened, decadent characteristics of Rock and Roll (just like punk rock did to the 70’s stadium rock bands). Rather than gloat about their money, cars, women, and drugs they became pretentious and ashamed to be or act like rock stars. In short, they handed over the larger-than-life attitude over to Rap.

            The Grunge philosophy, similarly to that of the Punk Rock of the 1970’s was a paradox; self-destructive by nature. Rock and Roll however, was explosive with the aim of a global take over; the more in your face the better. Grunge was always meant to be anti-mainstream/anti-establishment but its eventual success led to it hypocritically becoming the mainstream music of the early/mid 1990’s. Grunge had become a product, and just like punk rock it was short lived (pun intended. too soon?); its end marked by the 1994 suicide of Kurt Kobain.

            Although Grunge is dead, the aftermath of its influence is unfortunately alive and well. Yarling is the quintessential staple of modern alternative rock acts such as Nickelback. Every popular modern rock band seems to be suffering from the formulistic influence of their Grunge predecessors. Although this is considered new/modern rock there is hardly anything new about it seeing as the style has been dragged on for the better part of 15+ years. It comes as no surprise to see the success of modern rock bands slowly dissipating as the general public gets their Rock star fix from the veteran classic rock bands or even rap (which seems to have more of an excessive rock attitude than the modern rock bands). If Rock and Roll wants to make a comeback it needs to go back to the basics. The veteran bands are proof that there is still demand for stadium rock. Only time will tell if the artists can fill that demand.
