Blackbird by AlterBridge! Great song. Great story. You “feel” it all the way through.
I’m a rabid Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. Just happened, but my fave song is Paranoid Android by Radiohead.
^^ A big hell yeah to the RHCP; definetely my favorite rock band.
- The last song on “Mushroom Jazz 7″. Pure awesome. Make sure to listen to the part where the guitar and horns start to kick in.
KnowMads… any underground hip hop fan on HE will love these guys.
“We make music because we feel there are too many kids out there wasting their lives. We call ourselves the KnowMads because we wander our planet and our society in search of intelligent life. In search of those few people who make the world spin and your heart beat. But we’re just doing what we love. When our lights burn out we’ll leave behind our music. So that’s our lives. When the bombs start dropping and kids start praying, we’ll be up on the rooftop, freestyling and beatboxing til the world goes down. Peace.”
I love Diamond Rings…underneath the crazy makeup and synth, he’s actually a deeply talented musician.
HIM is the most underrated band in the US…but by far my favorite. They’re big in Europe though, Finnish love metal band. Love Cake! I can’t wait to check out some of these bands that have been metioned. Right now I’m rockin’ out to Arcade Fire, Crystal Castles, NIN, Black Keys…Oh I also love the song Diamond Eyes by Shinedown. Deftones has a pretty killer Diamond Eyes song, too. Oh and Rhinestone Eyes by the Gorillaz :) Oh one more, the Dead Weather rocks my world too.
