    Bands that you forget kick ass until you re-hear them somewhere and then....

    realize they do.

    NoFX - every time they pop up on my music queue I realize how awesome they are.

    Dread Zeppelin - Fat Elvis, reggae beats, zeppelin songs. Awesome party.bar band. See them live if you can.

    Johnny Cash - particularly his late work where he covered things like Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode. Awesome work.

    Graveyard_ Who knew Sweden could rock in such a way! Sadly they are called Doom/Stoner Metal, but they remind my of Zepplin and 70s rock/metal

    Anything KISS or Ted Nugent... Including seeing Gene Simmons when the GF calls me upstairs to watch them perform last night on Dancing with the Stars. If Gene Simmons could sell clones of his tongue to women, he'd be a gazilllionaire.


    Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Steely Dan, every single one of their albums by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, top notch. Can't think of anyone that has ever done a cover of their songs?

    Deep Purple.

    Zappa. Every time I think about him I'm all "WTF, why would anyone listen to that weirdo?" then I listen to him and I'm like "Damn, that dude rules my socks!" I'm going to see Dweezil cover his stuff in July.

    My 11 year old son has been busy reliving my own middle school musical experiences. The Police, Queen, Led Zep, The Kinks, REM, Rush, The Who, and more. Not that I ever stopped thinking these guys kick a$$, but I just haven't listened to it all in a long time so it has been a pleasant surprise.

    iTunes Gift Card - $15
    Playing air guitar with your son - priceless

    I'm also a huge Zappa fan. But so much is, how shall we say, not appropriate for an 11 year old. But when the kids are not around, I occassionally find time to crank it up. The Torture Never Stops!

    Check out the Truckfighters or Kvelertak. There's a whole resurgence of psychedelic classic rock coming from the metal spectrum and these bands are touring with doom/stoner metal bands but definitely a far cry from anything but the earliest of 90s desert/stoner metal bands.

    I liked RHCP until the Red Hot Minute Album when the truly crossed over from being a funk band to a top 40 hit band. The earliest Self Titled record, Freaky Styley and Uplift Mofo Party Plan Albums were their best work in my opinion. Mother's Milk was a little less funky and the rest after that really just lost the funk and gained the pop hooks.

    Still have the self titled album that i bough in High School when it came out, one of my first CD's along with The Beastie Boys Paul's Boutique CD.

    Hi, once again, saved by the wife. That's why I don't
    hardly drink, get low blood- sugars. I think what I was trying to say
    was Aerosmith, Uriah Heep, Blue Oyster Cult.
    Ok, I'll shut the hell up now.

    Second the Johhny Cash, Uriah Heep, Steely Dan & Zappa call outs (saw Zappa's last tour - unbelievable).

    How about Slade? Used to be a big fan back in the stone age.

    Also early Alice Cooper. I still think "Killers" is one of the ten best classic rock albums.

    And Saxon - always thought they were under rated.

    Billy Joel.



    If any of you guys want to question my sexuality/hit on me for my taste in music please do it via PM




    Also, a +1 on the first Pearl Jam album, and the first Stone Temple Pilots album.


    The red hot chilli peppers album Blood Sugar Sex Magic was totally off the hook IMO, one of the few albums that I'll regularly listen start to finish, but I have not forgotten how rad it is.


    80s Bad Religion, as mentioned earlier, always gets me stoked.

    Some bands you remember fondly, go to listen to them again and think "damn, i used to love that album.... im not sure why"

    EVERY time i "re"discover Pantera they rock even harder than i remember. R.I.P. dimebag.

    In high school I had 2 tapes in my car, ACDC Back in Black, and Metallica Ride the lightning. I used to like ride the lightning better, but now I think Back in Black has the edge, it flat out rules, start to finish.

    I'd forgotten how good they were with Bon Scott, but FM radio won't let me forget what they're like since he died.

    ... that's two posts from me about dead frontmen ... one time I went on a road trip for work, and realized that all the CDs I brought with me were associated with dead guys.

    I've been "re-discovering" all my old metal albums since I got one of those turntables that plug into my computer to turn my old albums into MP3's

    Old Sabbath, Zeppelin, Priest, Maiden, Accept, early Metallica, etc. I kind of forgot how HEAVY those bands were, yet so musical. Love it

    Also old Rush, early REM, Husker DU. I know I'm gonna sound old, but what the hell has happened to the music industry? There are talented unique bands that I like- Mumford&sons/Monster of Men. But where are the newer generation of Great ROCK N ROLL bands? Are there even any?

    Check the new Sabbath record, it's a solid one.

    Not a fan, but you're not going to get any bigger than Foo Fighters as far as great rock and roll. Queens of the Stone Age are doing a great job carrying the torch as well.

    Japandroids arent that big but expect them to be a household name by the time their next record comes out. Huge growth for those two guys, you'll dig them if you like Husker Du, there's a huge Replacements/HuDu influence on them. They're already writing songs to rock stadiums they cant book yet.




    Also a shoutout to some Atlanta boys making the finest hard rock out there in my opinion. Monstro is a mix of everything that is good about the last fifty years of rock and roll, kinda hard to tell that the guys all came from some serious metal bands before coming together to form Monstro. Ton of classic rock, glam rock, and grunge influence with just enough metal riffs to hold it all together without seeming cheesy. These guys are going to be huge someday, their first release made several top 10 lists in 2011.

    I heard on the radio this morning that Back in Black is the second highest selling album of all time behind Thriller. This fact is not independently verified however. None the less it rocks!

    I have not seen any mention of The Eagles, one of the most musically talented (if not most dysfunctional) bands of all time.

    I'll chime in with a few CDs I've listened to recently:

    The Cult "Sonic Temple"

    Bad Brains "I Against I"

    Queensryche "Rage for Order"

    And older Radiohead

    13 songs is classic.

    How about Primus - Sailing the Sees of Cheese.
    Tilt
    Lagwagon
    Social Distortion
    Helmet - meantime
    Downset - self titled
    No Avail
    BoySetsFire

    Oh - for those of you with similar music taste, check out the movie "The other F word". Entertaining to see the punk rock guys as dads.

    Guns n Roses!

    I read Duff McKagan's autobiography a while back. It was interesting to read how hard they found it to get picked up and played by radio stations early on. They didn't fit the standard metal mould, and they weren't blues based rock. They basically had to create their own genre. But dang, once they did, they created some pure awesomeness!

    Also, Scorpions.
    Driving down to stay with my parents last night and my wife put on an album of power ballads. We had to repeat a couple, including 'Winds of Change'.

    This is a cool thread, but I'm with Dirt Farmer. Most of these bands mentioned in this thread are amongst the best ever. How does one forget they rock? Maybe I'm being too literal with the thread title.

    Somebody mentioned Jeff Buckley. Every time I go back and listen to that album I just keep asking myself: How was this album not a huge hit?
    Fugazi is a good mention. The Pixies I never really got into during their first go around, and now I really love to hear them. Scorpions is another good mention.

    How does anybody forget that AC/DC or Black Sabbath rock?

    There have been a few obscure bands mentioned that are new to me. Of the ones i actually know, every pull has been great! I have a very eclectic taste in music and even though my entry was Pantera, from Billy Joel to Bad Religion have been exactly what the thread is about. Great reminders of some really good music.

    No, you dont forget that these bands kick ass.. you forget HOW MUCH they kick ass.

    Hell yeah minitrail I remember those guys! Have 2 of their cds. Oh the alternative 90's...I cut my teeth on old Aerosmith (pre Done with mirrors) and old Kiss... then the metal 80's...Remember Riot...? Swords and Tequila - Riot - YouTube Those guys should have been huge!!

    I played in an alternative band from 91-96 and still think that was a great time for music. A.I.C. / S.T.P. / R.H.C.P. (pre one hot minute) / Helmet / Soundgarden /

    Lately I'm diggin' on a 70's binge; ZZ tops first 6 albums!! Billy Gibbons is the shit...And yeah I can enjoy The Carpenters / Linda Ronstadt / Freddie Fender / Hank Jr. / David Allen Coe / and Willie Nelsons' Red headed Stranger...

    BRG, now that we have delved back into these dark days of our musical past, what about Pennywise? I loved this song, always use to wait through the silence for the piano at the end.

    Well it would appear that I killed this thread with my ABBA referrence, I guess you had to be here. Anyway its clearly time to reset the tone's and throw up another one that I heard yesterday for the first time in years.

    Hoodoo Guru's
