I've recently got into new rock, and I've been looking for some good bands. Some I like so far are Modest Mouse, Spoon and the Kings of Leon.

BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB!
they're absolutely my favorite new band, have been for years. Make sure to look up all of their stuff, well, the album "B.R.M.C." pretty much covers it all, but they also did an acoustic album. Their newest is "Baby 81". It's all good stuff.

Thunderbird 13 is all right for some heavier stuff. They're very unknown though.
