Hole, Garbage, The Killers and Powderfinger. Especially Hole, they're very hardcore.
ACDC forever :) Love them, and they're pretty classic rock. And Queen :3
I can't choose. Way to many. You just so happened to ask of my favorite music genre. :)
But I agree with the people who left things along the lines of the Beatles, Styx, Aerosmith, Dave Matthews, and Steve Miller Band.
May I include two of my personal favorites, Soul Asylum and Filter. :)
Good luck to you, and if you find a particular 80's rock band you like, please let me know. If you can. :)
queen, train, BEP, green day, maroon 5.... i got nothin
Evanscence, Green Day, The Beatles, Paramore, 3 days grace are my favs. If you want singers, Avril Lavigne, Delta Goodren and also Skylar Grey. Those are my favs.
I really don't have a Favorite Rock band and I don't listen to Hard metal,Rock and stuff like that. I listened to Three days Grace before,All-American rejects,Nickleback-but Not rock. :)
The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana (even though they're more grunge).
I absolutely LOVE classic rock!!!! Aerosmith, AcDc, Led Zepplin, ZZ Top, Def Leopard, Van Halen, Foreigner, 38 Special, Journey, REO Speed Wagon, Styx, Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, White Snake, Poison, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones, Twisted Sister, Steve Miller Band, Lynard Skynard, Little River Band!!
And if you want some modern in there that isn't hard core stuff, Daughtry and Nickleback.
Hope that helps!!! :)
In your question you asked who our favorite rock bands are, and that's what people are telling you. You don't have to be so narrow-minded about the time period. Rock music is rock music, whether it be metal or soft or old.
As for my suggestions, I love Dead By April, Three Days Grace, Bullet For My Valentine, and A Change of Pace. None of those are old bands. They're all, as you so kindly put it, "crappy modern-day rock bands"
And one last thought, metal most certainly counts as rock! ):<
Linkin Park,Panic at the Disco,Evanescence,My Chemical Romance,Greenday,and Black Veil Brides are my faves!!!:)
