Ok, I will have to try to elucidate: does anyone know of any music which is rockish, fast tempo, good quick beat... I was reminded of this from the "rock" thread. Some Rage Against the Machine songs come to mind, namely "Take The Power Back". Looking for something that gets you really pumped up.

I need some hard rocking to offset my other mellow listening.

I'm not sure if I know what kind of music you're looking for but... fast energetic rock?

AFI
Dir en Grey
The Offspring

Probably not what you're looking for, but they are pretty fast paced.

Maybe I am getting old but i consider the non stop guitar in any AC/DC song to be fast and energetic

They play like that in concert too-schoolboy never stops

I second the recommendation for Offspring.
Check into punk, that genre as a whole is generally fast and energetic. The Offspring came out of punk, but kept their fast paced sound.
Yeah, AC/DC is fast and energetic, and they don't toss some godawfull slow ballad on their albums either.

I have Green Day - Nimrod and I like it quite well. It seems fast and energetic with out being obnoxious.

Of recent mainstream rock.
'KILLING JOKE' s selftitled from 2003 is pretty fast and ok musically, if you like hoarse punk-like vocals. And Dave Grohl on drums.

This is quite far from the beaten path, but I might recommend trying some samples (if you can find them) from a videogame soundtrack called Contra: Shattered Soldier (or Shin Contra in Japan). If you can't find samples I'll gladly send you a couple. All instrumental, mostly hard rock and techno. Good stuff.

Sounds like you need a shot of MOTORHEAD.

If Lemmy can't set you on fire then nobody can




As he said on his live concert cd "Prepare to be laminated against the wall!"

The group X. One of the original American punk groups and one of the best period. Start with the CD Wild Gift.

Oh, and if you want to go back to the roots of rock and roll. Check out Jerry Lee Lewis's Live at the Hamburg Club. The energy level is extraordinary.

hell yea, ATD-I (specially that CD) kicks some serious... yea. the bonus track (Catacombs) on the imported one is also worth the extra money, cause it rocks and is very fast.

anyways, to add to the list:

The Mars Volta "De-loused at the Comatorium" (2 ATD-I members)

My Chemical Romance "I brought you my bullets, you brought me your love" (a great fast as hell new band)

Rocket From the Crpyt "Scream, Dracula, Scream!!!" (if you like the punk/ska, sound this CD is incredible)

Faith No More "King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime" (one of my top 3 CDs of all time)

"rockish, fast tempo, good quick beat"?

the band Zeke might be what you're looking for ... the first 2 albums on Scooch Pooch are out of print, but their subsequent stuff (2 albums on Epitaph, 1 on Aces & Eights and a live album + DVD on Dead Teenager) should still be easily available. they have an upcoming (?) release on Relapse Records.
