Opeth -- Blackwater Park and Deliverance.... pretty much the entirety of both albums
Mastodon -- Blood and Thunder
Tool -- Jambi

I ain't sayin these are the best riffs ever, but they're awesome and not heard strictly on classic rock radio......

I'm assuming you haven't heard it and just guessed that it was similar to Hawthorne Heights. (I didn't say emo because the term is so misused). It's actually a social commentary, mainly focused on smoking, by a pop-punk/alt-rock band from the California East Bay. Where Metallica and Rancid come from.

If you have heard it, then you obviously have a problem with people liking different music to you and are therefore an idiot.

Hey, re-arrange these letters to discover what you are:

Good luck, I'm not sure your small brain can handle it.


To add to the thread:

DAM THAT RIVER - Alice In Chains.
