blues rock

does anybody know any modern day blues rock bands that would be good to listen to? i love hard rock acts with a blues edge but everything today is nu-metal and emo, and i dont have time to search for the less popular bands out there nowadays, although i know theyre there somewhere.

ZZ Top. Probably THE best blues-rock band ever.

I don't know any new blues-rock bands, except maybe The Derek Trucks Band, The Black Keys, and Gov't Mule, but for some older blues-rock bands try Led Zeppelin, Ten Years After, The Allman Brothers Band, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, etc.

good call on a few of those. if your after a more southern-blues-rock, go wtih skynyrd, maybe SRV, if your comparing it to some types of blues. for a more modern rock inspired aproach, Govt Mule is the way to go (though obviously southern inspired too). for a little of everything, Derek Trucks Band all the way. ZZ Top for texas/swing blues. all good stuff, check them all out.

EDIT: ^American Minor, that band JUST added me on myspace, they actually do kick ass. a LOT like govt mule, too. good stuff.

Definitely the Black Keys, White Stripes (first 3 albums especially - 'The white Stripes', 'De Stijl' and 'White Blood Cells') and Black Crowes, but also the 22-20s, named after the Skip James song, (broke up this year after making just one live EP, '05-03' and one album, '22-20s') who were in my opinion the best blues-oriented band of the last thirty years. You might also like the Dirtbombs, the Mooney Suzuki and the BellRays, all a bit more rock'n'soul, but the Mooney Suzuki definitely bluesy. Two older bands - Humble Pie and Foghat, and Rory Gallagher if you don't him already
