10 Essential Modern Rock albums a Classic Rocker has to have!

it's pretty much impossible for a classic rocker to ONLY like classic rock music so what 10 modern rock albums do classic rockers think are essential or just flat out like?

and this has to be in the classic rock forum because i need the opinions of classic rockers and i don't think many of you go to the modern rock forum.

You haven't been here very long have you?


But anyway,

1. Sam Roberts - We Were Born In A Flame (Soulful "beatle-esque" modern rock)
2. Oasis - The Masterplan (a mix of clean and the nitty gritty)
3. Electric Six - Senor Smoke (dance/disco/rock)
4. Queens Of The Stone Age - Rated R (Stoner Rock)
5. Radiohead - The Bends (OK Computer purists will doubt, but honestly, "The Bends" is far more inviting)
6. Our Lady Peace - Spiritual Machines (Just great music)
7. The Darkness - One Way Ticket To Hell And Back (More refined then "Permission To Land", and generally a lot better IMO)
8. The Dandy Warhols - Thirteen Tales From An Urban Bohemia (No describing this)
9. The White Stripes - Elephant ("Get Behind Me Satan" is a step down from this IMO, and Elephant is generally more inviting)
10. Radiohead - Hail To The Thief (More inviting than "Kid A" and "Amnesiac", and one should buy those after this one)

Noone mentioned the Mars Volta so either Deloused in the Comatorium or Franics the Mute by them.. or both.

Also frizzle fry by primus.

Gotta have....

Muse - any one of 3
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream AND Mellon Collie
Chilis - Blood Sugar for older days, Californication for newer styled stuff (any older I'd say might be too different for a regular classic rock listener)
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Tool - Pick 2 of their albums
Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
some Grunge album, I don't care what I don't listen to it.

Those are in my veiw major bands of this era. If you're British you probably have to get something by Oasis and Blur, possibly Stone Roses...hard to pick just 10 bands, let alone albums

EDIT: something Radiohead

EDIT2: Fuck, get something Porcupine Tree, In Abstentia or Lightbulb Son I'd say.

In no order:

Gastr Del Sol - Camofleur (prog-rock/ambient)
Mr. Bungle - California (experimental)
Radiohead - OK Computer
Secret Chiefs 3 - Book Of Horizons (experimental)
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun (ambient)
Acid Mothers Temple - Univers Zen Ou De Zero A Zero (psychedelic)
The Books - Lost And Safe (ambient/psychedelic)
Oysterhead - The Grand Pecking Order (prog-rock/funk)
Bela Fleck And The Flecktones - Outbound (smooth jazz)
Melt Banana - Cell-Scape (noise-rock)

Wouldn't consider some of them essential, just some modern rock albums that I enjoy.

Anything by the Black Crowes. They're the best band around these days...in my opinion of course.
