21st century guitar rock bands

Recommended Posts

Would the forum members please refer me to some new or new-ish guitar based rock bands. I crave fresh music. I like anything from old ZZ top to System of a Down, I got turned on to Fountains of Wayne and Palo Alto through these forums and they're great. I'm primarily looking for college radio type bands, I'm pretty familiar with the charting stuff. Thanks for any suggestions.

Here`s a few. They`re so fresh I don`t know a thing about any of them, you`ll have to find out for yourself:


Pleymo-French rock


The Von Bondies-Detroit garage-rock


Isis-`sludge-core`, whatever that means...


Macolla-pop from Nicaragua (!)

Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

Here are a few:





Franz Ferdinand

and if you haven't got their first album, The Stone Roses.

Yeah, you can't go wrong with Fountains of Wayne.


My favorite "guitar" album of the last few years has got to be Weezer's "Maladroit." Big, crunchy stuff with great songwriting and influences from the last 30 years of guitar rock. Listen to it LOUD.


The Darkness is pretty cool too if you can dig the guy's falsetto...

this house is empty now...
