Modern bands that sound like "classic rock?" - Page 3

post #31 of 75

Hmm, modern music that sounds like classic rock... I thought that is what classic rock is for

 

Try The Secret Machines. Now Here is Nowhere.

For some, the music that was current when this thread was created might qualify as classic rock.

Maybe not what you're thinking, but to me these bands have songs built around cool, catchy riffs and melodies

 

Coheed and Cambria - Gravemakers and Gunslingers - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6SgEzZ1RD0

Wolfmother - Joker and the Thief http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKjV_bWnFCM

The Fall of Troy - Quarter Past http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUoaCW0X8bo

I think this is such a horrible generalisation.

Possibly, but can you name 5 artists or bands from the 80's on, that are as iconic as most of the stuff that came from the 60's or 70's?

yeah there are those that seem obvious like silverchair and wolfmother, at the same time, i found something in band of horses' self titled that instantly got me connected from their first note.

I'm glad some one mentioned Joe Bonamassa

 

remeber that many of the early classic rock bands were very much influenced by the blues, and covewred a lot of blues songs with their own twist.  so where you want to look is at the cross over between rock and the blues, which is where Joe fits in.  Jeff Heally would be another.  I like a lot of what Ronnie Earl does, and the latest Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, "Blue Again" is worth checking out.

 

If you are a classic rock fan, the blues will get to you so be prepared

Second The Black Keys, first time I heard them I thought they were from the '70s.

 

Also X2 Monster Magnet, "Dopes To Infinity" et al, based on a sound that came out of the late '60s.

 

Another one of my favorite bands, Queens of the Stone Age, for me, carry the torch of rock and roll. I haven't heard their eponymous first release but for the rest would rate them in this order: Lullabyes To Paralyze, Era Vulgaris, Songs For The Deaf, and Rated R (which is the only one that I feel has any filler songs).

Radio Moscow. 

 

Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys actually produced their self titled release.

The White Stripes.  Could have been outtakes albums by Led Zeppelin.
