I've been getting a lot of music lately, mostly 60/70 blues rock and stuff, The Who, Hendrix, James Gang (just today, their awesome, anyway I really, really want to find some swing music.

I think there is a song called Sing, Sing, Sing, and also Chameleon, those sort of songs. If you know any bands that do this sort of music, names would be appreciated.

Also, any of your favourite bands you might as well stick in here too.

inb4 I cum blood.

You would be referring to a cover then. The Stones are the original artists.

Agreed on the Brian Setzer. Love me some Setzer.

Unrelated to swing, listen to Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare." Damn good album.

I could never really get into them. I know they are all quite talented, but just never got into them.
Vocals really are what killed it for me.

And thanks Mike, will look into him.

Lol at no one even paying attention to the fact he asked for swing. Glen Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Cab Calloway are all cool swing artists.

I paid attention.

I don't know any artists, but Bjork did a song called "It's Oh So Quiet" (it's a cover though) which is really good you should check out

chameleon is herbie hancock, so it sounds like some funk/jazz stuff sounds like what you want. check out weather report, tower of power, and anything that jaco pastorius has been involved. also look into some of the old jazz greats, like Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie, and Charlie Parker. For guitarists, look up Wes Montgomery. and look up Cherry Poppin daddies for good swing stuff.

That was pretty freaking awesome.

Someone said Herbie hancock did Chameleon, definitely will look into him, thanks for the name

This is great guys, you'll keep me busy for a good long while.
Even if it's not swing, I appreciate the suggestions, there is never enough music

Not swing but still some insane jazz - Check out Charlie Parker. Jazz on crack. Well, heroin to be specific.
