e5 is another name for the powerchord E, it uses the intervals of the major scale to get it's name (E is the tonic/root, then you take the 5th interval (B), and sometimes add the octave of E again to thicken up the sound) Bb5 is just a B flat powerchord (the b means it's flat), Bb is the same notes as C (but in music theory it is not correct to say it is the same)

This is a site for musicians and you're all crying about the sad state of rock? Fuck that. I'm going to practice more and take over radio. I advise you all to do the same.
