There's a modern rock recommendation thread in the stickies. To help you out a bit, check out Pearl Jam's newer stuff. I know they've been a band since 1990 but they have constantly tried to change their sound and really sound like a modern band. I'll also recommend you modern Incubus. Especially the 'A Crow Left Of The Murder' album.

alrite then, try Manic Street Preachers, not very new but i only discovered them myself a few months ago so they are new to me

and btw Artics really are from up north, and none of the other bands ive listed earlier have "fake northren accents" tbh. apart from LSP (who are just Turner and Kane who are both northern).

also, check out Foxboro Hot tubs (if u havent already)

They've only been releasing studio albums since 1999 I think, and they're still active. They're modern, not new though.

I meant to say new (hence the edit).

Okay, muse are cool but they have a sound that you cannot really learn much from, in my opinion anyways.. they're syle is so potent that I couldn't add it to my own, it just woudn't sound right!
