Title: Need Music Recommendation
Post by: credo on May 24, 2007, 03:05:04 PM
Can I get some recommendations/names for rock bands who feature keyboards/organs/piano?

My one other requirement is that they must rock.

More like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XrPCCh-5aw&mode=related&search=)

Mate's of State are super-upbeat, but they sort of rock from time to time.

There's a band I'm trying to think of that I think might be more along the lines of what you're thinking of, but I'm coming up empty.

Something Corporate is self proclaimed "piano rock".

They are also filed as "emo" in my itunes.

I don't know if that helps you at all  :-[

I like this band, though they're a bit more poppy than you might want:

If you're into more cheerful stuff then any Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, or Dragonforce album should do the trick.

If you want to see a real rocker check out GG Allin.  No one has really heard of him since he overdosed in '93, and he was just a nut. 

"He is best remembered for his notorious live performances that typically featured wildly transgressive acts such as Allin defecating and urinating onstage, rolling in excrement, committing self-injury, performing naked, taunting people to perform fellatio on him, and violent actions towards the audience. Although more notorious for his stage antics than for his wide body of music, he recorded prolifically, not only in the punk rock genre, but also in spoken word, country and Rolling Stones-influenced rock."

Unfortunately, YouTube took most of his raunchy videos off, but here is a cool one.  In this videos he breaks a bottle and slams his face in the broken glass numerous times.  They used to have a video of him where he sh*t on the stage, rubbed it all over himself, and then proceeded to throw it at the crowd.  However, I can not find it :( I don't necessarily like the music, but this guy is great.

But I'm surprised he didn't get his skull crushed in and die at an earlier age.  And let's not equate acting like a d0uchebag to being a "rocker".

Lovage and Handsome Boy Modeling School are my new favorites.  New NIN is simply amazing, and maybe a little silver sun pickups
