Does anyone know of any good rock bands I won't have heard, and some songs I can download by them from kazaa? recently I've got some by arch enemy and nightwish, both good bands, and obviously I've heard most of the mainstream rock stuff, i'm currently looking into less popular/mainstream rock bands. so if you know any do tell :)

    Are people sitll using Kaaza? Their network is dodgy and fully of fake tunes. I hear Kaaza is more or less dead.


    NOFX are a really cool Punk Rock band. Have a look for Franco Un-American and She Nubs.

    The Seahorses are a good band as is The Crocketts. Good luck trying to find any of the The Crocketts stuff, there's not much about. 1939 Returning is a great tune.

    I think everyone should listen to (and subsequently fall in love with!) Foolproof. Their single is called Paperhouse. :)

    Kazaalite 2.43 is the best one, but still a little shady.

    Also here is a band in my opinion that is great, but didnt get that much respect(i dont think :eek: )

    One of the greatest bands

    There were in a local club recently. I didn't go when they were there though. They gave my mate a birthday hug and kiss. She was dead pissed and couldn't stop telling them how when she saw them they were good but nothing on machinehead! :lol:


    (they supported machinehead)

    'Rock' is pretty broad and it's hard to know what you mean by 'popular' but couldn't resist putting forward a few of my all time faves, of a more punk flavour (I'm guessing you don't mean metal). These are definitely popular and well-known but if you havent heard them then it's worth me recommending them, non?:

    NOFX: Punk in Drublic, esp songs Stickin in My Eye, The Bruise, Bo Diddley, Linoleum
    Lars Frederiksenn and the Bastards- any song on their only album
    Transplants- as above, amazing band
    Rancid: all albums, all songs! Esp Ruby Soho, Old Friend, Red Hot Moon, Radio, Nihilism...
    AFI- esp Silver and Cold, Dancing through Sunday and Girls Not Grey
    My Own Victim

    I'll leave it at that for now, don't want to sound like a know it all, I just know what I like!

    This is a
    rock record label list with loads of links you could try- on loads of them you can listen to songs.
    Also try Epitaph

    So far I've downloaded a good few by SiKth, already knew about them but couldn't get their songs on kazaa, so I have limewire now. They're a fucking class band (sorry for the language, but they are).

    I found Zyklon a little bit like SiKth in they're style and they're also a really good band, one I hadn't heard of.

    Also downloaded "I am the one" by Crackout, I've heard this one before, maybe in a computer game or on tv, but it's a class song, couldn't get any more of there's yet.


    Will download more when I have the time, I can't now cos I'm going out soon.

    If you like utter bollocks that could never be classed as rock.

    Evanescence are a rock band, well, a gothic type of rock band. They have a mixture of music

    They have guitars and drums. There, the similarity to rock music ends. It's whiny. sped up pop with a few riffs thrown in.

    It doesn't matter how you classify Evanescence, they're a pile of angsty wank.

    As are the few bands/songs that have been mentioned in this thread that I've had the misfortune of hearing.

    Dance music is where it's at. kiddies :thumb:

    All rock is pants anyway, you only listen to it because you arent hardcore enough.

    Pansy lightweights! I could take double anything you could and run a mile!

    Fuck I haven't recognised one of these bands - I assume they're all heavy metal?

    If your looking for some good rock bands you haven't heard why not try some older bands - you'd be amazed how good they are if you give 'em a proper listen.

    Rolling Stones are fucking brilliant. The Velvet Underground, the Who - some of the old punk stuff is brilliant . . . the clash and the jam.

    As for newer stuff - well I'm more into indie/punk and not sure that would be your kind of stuff but would reccommend: the futureheads, British Sea Power and The Walkmen or the bees and the zutons for some shroomadelica rock n roll.

    Really doubt any of that would be your cup of tea but thought I'd throw it in

    Aye... I'd say Velvet Underground were more... I dunno, their own style than rock. Some of their music I'd classify as Jazz.
