With all of the questionable types of music out today (emo, techno, etc.), I am curious to know from those of you who listen to rock:

What band that is current, meaning producing new music and touring, do you consider to be the best? We can debate all day about the legendary groups like The Who, Stones and more, but what about TODAY?

If I had to make a pick for right now it would have to be the Foo Fighters, but I am curious to see what others have to say.

I can't really pick just one, but I'll cast votes for Breaking Benjamin, Evans Blue, Staind, Coheed & Cambria, Disturbed, and I could go on.... Lots of good hard rock out there..

Throwing back to the 80's, the new Dokken rocks!!!

haven't heard of them...I will have to check them out.

I like Avenge 7fold, Breaking Benjamins, Shinedown, but I think my favorite is Disturbed.

Wolfmother

They have a raw energetic sound that reminds me of a young Black Sabbath.

I agree, Muse is fantastic. What about Kasabian?

I've heard the new Metallica album has crappy sound quality, like the production was bad on it? Is that true? I obviously haven't heard it yet.

It's mixed better than St. Anger was, and is better than St. Anger as well... but that's not great accomplishment. Cat sex sounds better than St. Anger.

Deep VI

Really?! Really! The Fighters of Foo? They are freakin' great, almost any "new" band today sucks! My pick is and will always be Weezer!

Tool and NIN are the only ones putting out consistently great music IMO...there arent many good bands these days.

Metallica...used to be my favorite band....they amount to a giant pile of garbage these days. St Anger was maybe the worst album ever made.

otherwise, I like the foo fighters....audioslave ain't bad, pumpkins' last album wasn't bad...

The surviving members of Queen picked the Foo's as the top rock band of now. I'd agree.

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audioslave) is great too.

Third Paradigm!!!



Just kidding. My vote goes to Breaking Benjamin. I teach guitar and I think the overwhelming majority among all of my 60+ guitar students are Breaking Benjamin fans.

For all of the Canadians and those of us in northern US. The Tragically Hip is the best band of all time

If you like Breaking Benjamin, try Evans Blue... similar sound with a better singer.

Death Magnetic sounds really good. I've had no issues with the sound quality. it's well produced and mixed in my opinion. of course it's not the same as the old ones... but it's pretty good.
