I have taken a long break from the rock genre for the past few years and I'm finally ready to take another look into what it has to offer. I dropped it originally because I just got tired of the genre (possibly because I limited myself to listening to only a few bands.) Anyways, I was wondering what some good band recommendations would be for getting back into the music? No screamo, punk/emo, or boy band pop stuff please. Thanks!

rock in itself is in a huge recession and is more of a underground genre imo

it will bounce back eventually

indie is the whole new in.

Really, I haven't heard a single bad review of this band (except my idiot friend who hasnt even listened to them, but that's beside the point).
If you want a pretty powerful, but not too generic or repetitive rock band, Collective Soul, my friend.

you definitely can't do rock n roll without Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith (i'd say up to the Get a Grip album and before), AC/DC (if you don't mind repetitive song structure), Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine-if you like hip hop/funk influence, EndeverafteR (probably my favorite modern rock band), Slash's most recent 'solo' album (grab all the 'bonus' tracks featured on different releases, this album is non stop rockin')

if you're more focused on modern music, and not especially interested in pre-2000s music (hey...a LOT of people are like that for some reason), then definitely focus on the new Slash album and EndeverafteR for straight up headbanging rock, and Audioslave for more of a mix of hard rock and mellow/funk blends.

If you're talking about more current stuff, I'd go The Killers.

Probably hands down the best band of the 2000s
