Every rock band that I encounter, I tend to like.
Okay, I never liked Creed very much. They broke up . . . ? Oh, well.
One of the favorites . . . fuel for the fire . . . consistentcy, longevity, simplicity.
Dog eat dog . . . eat cat too.
High . . . Voltage . . . Rock & Roll.
*whimper* But I like Creed...
It's okay for you to like Creed. I'm pretty sure AC/DC is not liked by all . . .
I've just got my tastes . . . of rock, for whatever reason, AC/DC electrifies me, just like that.
Yeah, I understand. =) AC/DC really isn't really my cup of tea (mostly because I haven't really been exposed to it all of that much), but I have my own tastes in rock, myself.
Well, AC/DC has had a bad connotation with regard to Christian groups and in particular, dubious nature of their music being inspiration for one truly depraved serial killer, but in terms of rock and roll, it's pretty straight-forward, great stuff.
It doesn't have the technical supremacy of Led Zeppelin, it isn't off-the-wall unique, it is merely the AC/DC.
High voltage . . . rock and roll.
You can't find better lyrics and screaming from any other group, in my mind . . . Bon Scott and Brian Johnson are two cats who really know how to make their vocals powerful, screaming, yet very tight.
Yeah, I said Brian Williams when I meant Brian Johnson. That is kind of the amazing part of their band history . . . Bon Scott died in 1980, and the band vowed to continue their legacy . . . they happened to find Johnson, who isn't exactly similar in vocal styling to Scott, but both are similar . . . both carry that power behind the vocals . . . it makes for a seamless transition from Scott-led AC/DC to Johnson-led in terms of vocals.
I suppose that if you were to desire 'quality' rock music . . .
The best way to find such music is to dig backward.
Anything that's been out there for years and years and you can still find it on the shelves . . . that's a good starting point.
Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult, Journey, Chicago, The Beatles, stuff with some sort of history and longevity . . . early Rolling Stones, early Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Jimi Hendrix . . .
Man, Jimi owns. He's truly a short-lived and excellent-play . . . I can listen to Jimi.
I looove Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and Aerosmith...I'm also a big fan of Queen. I grew up around that stuff...
It also depends on the term 'quality.'
I like obscure stuff . . . not readily known or found on shelves . . . sometimes the best rock bands are the ones you just cannot find from MTV, VH1, or any major media group advertisement.
i saw an all girl AC/DC cover band about 2 weeks ago and they were fucking badass. The lead singer a was black chick and she sounded just like Bon and Brian. There name was Helles Belles and i think they were from Seattle.
That's pretty awesome.
I love it when good covers are made.
Everclear did a B side of "Sin City" . . . that is probably one of my favorite covers. Montoya the bassist apparently was the vocalist.
