I have some stuff of my own to add.

The whole  Images and Words album, by Dream Theater. It's got a lot of very well-written songs on it, which in and of itself isn't all that common in a lot of Prog rock.
Twilight of the Thunder Godby Amon Amarth. Great melodic death metal, with somewhat intelligible lyrics plus a lot of great riffs.


Thanks to Trael!

Nickel Creek - This is a band someone showed me a while ago. They incorporate a bluegrass-esque quality to their music, which has been known to stretch into the rock, pop, and country genres.
Suggested songs: "Spit on a Stranger", "Smoothie Song" (A purely instrumental song), "Toxic" (A Britney Spears cover. ;D)

Stone Temple Pilots - This is a rock band from the 90's that shifts through various sub-genres. They were the iconic rock group of their time, almost defining the image of how 90's rock bands are viewed today.
Suggested songs: "Plush", "Creep", "Big Empty"

Oh yes!  Also check out their songs "Seven Wonders", "Green and Gray", "Brand New Sidewalk", "When In Rome", "The Lighthouse's Tale", "Sweet Afton", and "The Fox".

Rumor has it that when they first hit the bluegrass scene, many of the old timers were very impressed by the mandolin work done by Chris Thile.

Very good choice to add to this thread!

Thank you, Marty! Someone who agrees with me about Muse's new album!

They don't sound like them anymore... :undecided:

I hear that about alot of acts. Muse. The Smashing Pumpkins. My Chemical Romance. Nickelback. The Backstreet Boys.(I do not care for the last two acts in particular, but I figured I'd add them. :P)


I think I'll also suggest the Pixies. They are a band that basically opened up alternative rock music for the mainstream. So much that Kurt Cobain acknowledged that his band Nirvana succeeded in part because of the Pixies, among other bands. The Pixies didn't have much success, though, because they were never interested in making music videos, which many people in many decades were interested in, almost more than the music itself.
Suggested songs: "Velouria", "Here Comes Your Man", "Where Is My Mind"(The iconic ending song to the cult hit movie "Fight Club")

Basically all the albums from Ayreon. Really good stuff, which is described as rock operas in that the albums detail a story in some way, and each of the albums are connected to the others in some way. I've basically been listening to the albums nearly non-stop for the past week over 8 hours a day on average. Just that good.

Coal Chamber-Dark Days       Their old stuff, can be found on the albums chamber music and The Best of Coal Chamber
Breaking Benjamin-Crawl        Good all around song. Great vocals and guitar, with some well placed "scream"
Three Days Grace-Pain           Totally awesome song. Starts with just singing, then comes the beast guitar!

Hello, everyone! Lº§tMyMiNÐ here.

If I may throw in some suggestions here, I'd like to start by saying that I prefer no particular genre over another, but I usually tend to gravitate more toward rock, metal, and grunge. However, here's some songs that I've really enjoyed, one of which I'm listening to right now:

[Partially Revised!]

Dick Dale and His Deltones - "Misirlou"
Days of the New - "Running Knees"
Samuel Barber: "Adagio for Strings"
Novadriver - "Blackout" (Instrumental)
Overseer: "Supermoves"
Iron Maiden: "Wasted Years"
Jimi Hendrix: "All Along the Watchtower"
Nine Inch Nails: "The Day the Whole World Went Away"
Rush: "Limelight"
VAST: "Touched"
Boston: "Peace of Mind"

Just to name a few...

Also, if anyone here hasn't heard of this, check out the soundtrack for the Half-Life 2 mod, entitled: "Dear Esther," composed by Jessica Curry. I'll also post a link, where you can go ahead and download this astounding, superb soundtrack from ModDB, below:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/dear-esther/downloads/dear-esther-soundtrack

The soundtrack itself is, quite frankly, superb. It is a beautiful, melancholic, and sometimes weird soundtrack that, like the mod it was made for, is a bit of a journey on its own, but one that is well worth the trip. I personally give it a good, solid 9/10 rating, simply because it is just that good.

One final note before I sign off: it is saved in MP4 format.

Eldbjørg Raknes: a highly contemporary Norwegian vocalist. Her album Solo features just her voice - she records multiple takes to create chords and percussion sounds through singing. There's not much of her on YouTube or anywhere else (one of her close friends was a teacher of mine), but what there is shows how fantastic she is.
