Modern Rock

Recommended Posts

I've been scoping the "other music styles " forum and it's 80% modern rock. Let's face facts and accept that modern rock has alot of value to many members here. I'm not saying we should add them all to the HH database, but a section in the message board dedicated solely to what is concidered modern, ie: what Geoff and TIM2 go nuts over....me as well with some of those bands.

 

Just my 2 cents, now I'll shut up.

 

 

....Crap I'm typing again....

 

...and again....

 

.....STOP ME!!!!!

Haha... yeah. it's pretty much what the 'Other styles' forum has become but I always feel so out of place putting a lot of stuff there as a lot of it's more melodic rock than the stuff in the MHR forum. :lol:

Yep I think that's a good idea as well. I think the 'modern rock' thing has taken over the 'other music styles' section of the forum which is where I like to start topics on such great artists as Corey Hart and Nik Kershaw :) And with the huge number of really good modern rock bands emerging I think the genre is deserving of its own section.

Yes, every time I go to post a thread in the "Other Music Styles" section about the killer new opera CD I found, I always end up forgoing the idea, realizing that my beautiful opera recommendation would be lost in the swamp of modern rock/metal bands that have taken over the section. :crying: Where, oh where, does one go these days to post about opera, polka, and other disturbingly under-discussed musical genres?

 

Seriously, a Modern Rock/Metal Section is a good idea, given that a lot of the newer stuff has been embraced by melodic hard rockers, including myself, probably because modern bands have finally learned how to incorporate melody, hooks, and harmonies into their sound. But if this idea doesn't come to pass, I won't sweat it; I'll just keep going to the "Other Music Styles" thread. Let's face it, we already have Modern Rock/Metal Section; it's just a matter of do we want to officially label it that or not.

Agree its mostly modern rock - but then again most of the 'modern' rock this year is absolutely killer :tumbsup:

 

Everyone should go to 'other Music Styles' and listen. If you like Harem Scarem, then the likelihood is that you will like Ra's new album due out soon - but how many will really check it out??

 

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah almost zero interest to modern rock and metal but a new sub-forum will be harmless and probably a few dig this so well yes from me too

As someone who prefers Hard Rock but not AOR or Melodic. I'd vote to group them like this:

 

AOR / Melodic Rock

 

Modern / Hard Rock

 

Bands like Hinder and Halestorm are very different from bands like H.E.A.T. and Harem Scarem, yet they're all in the same section.

    • F**cking amazing release.

    • New song from the upcoming EP "The Devil's Turn" to be released in late August via Frontiers on digital download format only  
    • " Please make all applicable changes ASAP. "   This line actually made me laugh with how it seems to be the most important thing in the world ever.

      I don't collect vinyl but every time I'm in my local Goodwill scrounging for CDs I always flip through the moldy old LPs just to see what kind of weird sh** will turn up. Here are a half dozen album covers that made me go WTF? https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Weird-Thrift-Store-Record-Finds
