    Go backwards?
    The doors/stones/led zep/the who/jimi hendrix….. Queen? etc.

    bet even if you have some of their stuff, there’s still some more to discover. Otherwise I love DnB. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Back in time is good! Just put a load of Doors stuff on my playlist the other day, as it happens.

    Some other good stuff that I’ve been in to of late;

    The Answer (Just good old rawk and rowl!)
    Blues Traveller (Funky, fascinating jam stuff)
    Ben Folds Five (Interesting, amusing, intelligent)

    I am currently a big fan of country music like Townes Van Zandt

    I, too, am enjoying the Van Zandt, Tower Song especially.

    Elsewhere, nobody told me Radiohead were a pretty damn good band. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    I take it OP that you’re already well into Alice in Chains (not mentioned above, but still holding up nicely in 2013). 8)

    I really like this snappy little bright and breezy number but then, I am old and a bit out of touch… ๐Ÿ˜€

    You could do worse than check out Blood Red Shoes and The Joy Formidable.

    Why go backwards ??

    Why not try another Genre ?

    Maybe because you were in the Rock world you let slip some other fantastic music, stuff maybe you dismissed out of hand because you were a “rocker”. There’s some most excellent House/Techno/Deep/industrial that could, for you, be worth seeking out. Don’t dismiss this as some sort of “change your view” monologue, but more of a pointer towards some kicking sounds that have a similar beat (heavy, rhythmical, loud etc..) and make your feet tap and your shoulders move.

    I’m a massive fan of stuff in the rock but not much in recent years has impressed, the latest VanHalen album with DLR back was shite for instance…

    Soundcloud is a great place to start, Oliver Schories/LukeVegas/Room84 for starters.. You may not like it, worth giving it an hour of investigation though Shirley…

    Dizraeli and the Small Gods

    These are my favourite at the moment. Discovered them at The Beat-Herder Festival. Excellent live, every member is massively talented & the lyrics are witty, humorous, inspiring and thought provoking.

    This video is sooooo tight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_J6DdzzzU8

    Loads of good stuff on their YouTube channel.

    Rachael Stevens FTW.

    @ BikeBouy – I didn’t mention it but I have a parallel for some commercial yet eclectic & crossover R&B, & hard rap/garage (LL cool J, Dizzee Rascal, Kano, Limpbizkit, Jay Z, Eminem, Sean Paul) pretty much anything with a hard beat, even some of Beyonce’s stuff, plus Reggea and soca beats courtesy of a west indian wife and many trips on the Carribean buses…

    … for a bloke that never grew out of Sabbath/GnR/Velvet Revolver/Nirvana or early to mid nineties rock n roll etc?

    Never been into indie stuff such as the Kasabian era etc which left a number of years gap in my life, and I really need to invest in a new record collection….?

    Down with the kidz option- try “I was born I have lived I will surely die” by Young Guns. It’s all a bit Smash Hits with guitars but still, proper tune

    Failing that, let’s have a mighty Converge/F***ed Up double whammy. Converge for fury, F***ed Up for tunes. And fury.

    Yes, I own a copy of The Big Roar and it sounds like a cross between the Delays and epileptic fit in a cymbal factory piped through a plastic tube and recorded with a D90 on the wrong bias setting- to my ears/neurons.

    But, different strokes for different folks.

    EDIT: I’d say this sums it up.

    K57, cool, just pointing out some “other stuff like”

    There are some great DJ’s coming out of Berlin/Munich and Hamburg, simple search on that out to help.

    Having written it down, it seems I like “angry” music. ๐Ÿ˜•

    If you like a bit of retro sounding rock, what about Wolfmother?

    if you like it blues tinged, then the early Black Keys albums??

    I had (And still have) similar taste in GnR, Nirvana etc. but have brached out a bit to milder indie music since meeting the wife (shes not a fan). Currently enjoying Daft Punk and a new found love of Basement Jaxx

    For recent(ish) similar music, try “Them Crooked Vultures” – super group of Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones. Not as good as you would hope but good ol’ bluesy rock. And while i mention Dave Grohl, after years of great singles and poor albums, the last Foo Fighters album “Wasting Light” is about the best they have done since “colour and the shape”.

    I’ve turned to teenage screamo now I’ve hit 30. A Day To Remember are one of my current favourites, but also i’m into folky stuff and still a lot of punk.

    So my commute playlist normally consists of ADTR, Ben Howard, Killswitch Engage and Mumford and Sons. It’s a bi-polar train journey somedays.

    Have you heard the new Pearl Jam track 6Music have been playing recently, called Mind Your Manners. Sounds like they’ve drafted in Motorhead.

    Pearl Jam + Motorhead. What’s not to like?

    Heard of Clutch, never heard them. So, just had a run through a bunch of their tracks on YouTube. Well, I might well have done, but they’re pretty indistinguishable from many other southern rock/blues bands out there. I’d find them difficult to tell apart from The Jim Jones Review, TBH. Or ZZTop.
    I kind of grew out of that thirty years ago. I don’t mind it, but there’s so little light and shade in so much of that headsdownnononsencemindlessboogie, I just can’t listen to too much of it.
