I was lucky enough to see SRV live in a small venue in Joplin Mo in 1987 just when he was really gaining popularity. It wasn’t even sold out. He is a legend and it was a terrible loss to the music world!

Being the axehead you appear to be, I’m surprised there is no Steve Morse. I should add Tumeni Notes to my playlist, what a great guitar tune.

The Floating Men - Small country-folk-rock band from middle Tennessee. Hard to find much about them, they never really hit it big, which to me is one of the greatest modern tragedies. I don't know if I have the ability to explain them properly and do them justice. I feel bad trying to pick some of thier songs over the others, but the albums Song Of The Wind In The Pines, and Lemon Pie are among the best examples of Americana songwriting ever, full stop, end of discussion, you can fight me about it.

AFI - One of my favorite bands, if not the, other than The Floating Men. I have a tattoo of one of thier album covers, Sing The Sorrow. It's a brooding, dark, and goth as fuck punk-rock jam. Think of a guy with long, black hair and wearing eyeliner while wearing lots of black and writing sad, melodramatic poetry. Now give that guy a BEAUTIFUL voice and make him singer of a punk band. The lyrics read like classical poetry that'll make you reach for a thesaurus, and the instrumentation and composition are dark, heavy, aggressive, harsh, and brooding. It clashes and argues and screams in rage and hate at the cruel world. What's amazing about AFI, though, is that they evolve with every release. They didn't find a niche and stay comfortable there. Crash Love maintains Davey Havok's mopey and melodramatic lyrics and singing, but it's all wrapped up in a glamorous, airy, poppy, and streamlined pop-punk-rock flair. It takes the idea of a relationship that's going sour and coats it in a thick layer of glitter and tongue-in-cheek cynicism.

Rotting Christ - My personal favorite is Thier Greatest Spells (greatest hits/30th anniversary) album. They're a Greek death metal band that's been around for a long time. Key tracks: In Yumen-Xibalba, Ἐλθὲ κύριε (Elthe Kyrie), and Serve In Heaven.

Little Big - Russian dance/electronic group. Lots of fun. Key tracks: SKIBIDI, Go Bananas, Rock-Paper-Scissors, Hypno Dancer, and Farandanza.

The Killers - Hot Fuss album. Everyone knows this one for Mr. Brightside, which overshadows what is a great album start to finish. Smooth, graceful, and occaisionally funky pop-rock.

Ghost - All of it. They haven't made a bad tune yet. Sexy and groovy Satan metal, wrapped up in a poppy, dancy, 70's/80's rock vibe. Key tracks - Rats, Square Hammer, Dance Macabre, He Is, and Bible.

In This Moment - Darkly sexy metal. Maria Brink can fuckin' sing. My favorite album is Ritual, which includes a spine tickling cover of In The Air Tonight.

Mudvayne - Ryan Martinie is one of the all time great bass gods. This is not negotible. Key Tracks - Scream With Me, Dig, Not Falling, Forget To Remember, Happy?, and Do What You Do.

Trivium - Fantastic power/thrash/melodic metal. Haven't made a bad album, even if there are a few songs that fall a bit flat compared to the rest. Key tracks - Shogun (the whole album), Like Light To The Flies, Beyond Oblivion, and The Sin And The Sentance.

Rammstein - All of it. Key tracks - yes.

Lindemann - Rammstein's lead singer's (Till Lindemann) side project. Same as above.

A Perfect Circle - Passive.

Other bands I like to drive to - Slipknot, Powerwolf, Gloryhammer, Amaranthe, Avatar, Bush, Chevelle.

@Triumph23 Where The River Flows by Collective Soul is one of the best guitar riffs ever written.

After years of listening to familiar bands, I have been trying to find good music that I have not heard before. Having a current friend's circle who are not into this kind of music makes things hard as all the music I listed are stuff I grew up with in my teenage years with my college buddies, jamming the guitar, skipping college and head banging away. I miss those days. This thread made me think about all those songs while I wrote the list and rekindled those days. There I was, fitting a new shower in the en-suite, bluetooth speaker on and blasting these tunes all over again with my missus wondering what the flippin heck has gone wrong with me. Thanks for your list, there are a lot of bands I have not heard of, some vaguely familiar. I will be adding these to my playlist on the drive back home tonight. Thanks to OP for starting this thread! 🤘 🤘 🤘 🤘

Love Song - Simple Minds
from the same album


it has everything - it gives you time to fire up the car, put on your seat belt ... wind down the front windows, pop the sunroof, ... and cruise ... all to the beat of a thousand hypno grooves

when executed perfectly it is rhythm in motion
