Yeah, becuase Slipknot doesent suck...[/sarcasm]

It's all personal taste man.

@topic, He pretty much nailed it though, Machine Head has awesome Drop B songs, or really, just learn some drop D, drop C whatever songs and play them in drop B

Slipknot are awesome If you don't like em...well it's up to your personal taste as you said
Anyway it might help you get the hang of Drop B by playing some older Machine Head. I recommend Davidian,Old and Spine to get the hang of the new strings because these songs have some quick swapping between some power chord variations which you might find useful. After that move on to something harder to build up strength because since you're in Drop B you must've moved up a gauge at least. From This Day,Crashing Around You and The Burning Red. TBR is an awesome ballad which will shred all your family and friends to pieces from tears . When you feel you've got the hang of all this Drop B crap go harder and rougher! Descend The Shades Of Night has an amazing solo to learn, Deafening Silence also has an amazing solo requiring quite the accuracy and sustain. When you feel completely ready,head onto The Blackening. Hardest songs. Easy riffs,difficult breakdowns, insane solos.

If you're going for some slipknot I'd say work it up your way,their songs are of equal difficulty,easy to remember,tough to play correctly

Yeah old Bring Me The Horizon is fun to play, but I like playing their newer stuff too...

A lot like Vegas is pretty fun, the lead ain't too hard either

Also some Slipknot songs are fun to play, but I don't know much songs in Drop B/Bands that use it. I'm using Drop C and D and standard alot more now.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

old Bring Me the Horizon, yes. I love their stuff off of TIWTEOYSWMF (way to long to type out) and most their stuff off of Count your blessings. they got two songs on their new album in Drop C. wonder if thats what their next album will be in.

You aren't contributing anything to the thread by mentioning a ****y band that doesn't even play in Drop B.

And OP, Machine Head all the way.

You aren't contributing anything to the thread by needlessly attacking a completely valid suggestion of a pretty interesting band that plays one 3 second tuning adjustment away from drop b.

Machine Head's earlier songs are in drop C if I'm not mistaken. "Imperium" is a fun drop B one to play though
#23
gotta agree with what other ppl have said.bring me the horizon, their songs arent that hard to learn and they are really fun to jam. slipknot is really fun too, theyre more about the rhythm and feel though. machine head is f-ing intense, but if youre looking for a challenge there u go man. sorry i cant contribute further, thats what i jam in drop b

Machine Head will do you wonders.

Start out with Now I Lay Thee Down, as it's probably there easiest song.
