2010's Modern Rock Radio Singles


Jeff

Recommended Posts

Well, I was trying to think the past few days how to make this post make sense but I'll just go for it and try.

 

Because local radio mostly sucks, I listen to cd's and my mp3 player. However, I do like "some" of the songs by bands like Nickelback, Godsmack, Papa Roach, etc. that get air time on the radio. For example, a month ago I happened to have the local rock radio station on in the garage and Cavo's "Champagne" came on. Now I know some of you have talked about them on here but if I had not had the radio on, this is one single that I would have missed.

 

So I was hoping each year moving forward to have a post where we could post radio singles from bands we might not talk about much here, if at all.

 

Examples from years past:

Chevelle - I Get It

3rd Strike - No Light

A Perfect Circle - Judith

Default - Deny

Memento - Nothing Sacred

Stereomud - Pain

Shinedown - Second Chance

Crossfade - Cold

Fair To Midland - Dance Of The Manatee

Finger Eleven - Paralyzer

 

Basically I know I am missing some good modern rock singles but I don't have the money to buy every CD that comes out. So for the more commercial bands or modern one hit wonders, I just want the "cliff notes" so I can buy the MP3 from Amazon or wherever.

 

If this makes sense and the 2010 list seems to work for everyone, maybe we could go back in time and start some lists for 2000-2009? Only thing is I will be more of a leech on these lists than a contributor. :tumbsup:

Sorry mate, can't help here because I have no idea what gets released as singles - from the brief visits in my wife's car all I recall are the huge hits from Hinder, Fall Out Boy, that terrible Finger Eleven song and I heard Shinedown's 'Second Chance' a couple of times.

 

Anyway, just wanted to say, sign up to Secondspin.com!!! For the price of the MP3's of these yucky singles, in many cases (if you wait for a 20-30% off plus free shipping sale - which are quite common, or were anyway) you could have the full CD for a couple more dollars.

 

Of all those songs I only know the Shinedown album and although that was the best hook on the album imo, I thought there were several better songs. And with regard to Hinder, 'Without you' (their last single) was by far one of the weakest tracks on the CD. So in most cases you're definitely going to be better off with the full disc. :)

Jeff, Geoff's right....forget singles,,,,if you are intending to buy the MP3s then you just need the BEST tracks, not necessarily the ones released as singles.

 

So......how about we use this thread to post what we think are the best modern tracks of 2010 and that way you wont miss anything!

 

We'll all disagree of course so it will be up to you to listen to the samples of the songs and decide for yourself.

 

& just to add to R's post.......you need 'Aftermath' by Adam Lambert! The song is sensational and one of my fav modern rock songs of 2009.

 

Cheers

Strange choice mate....that's a decent song, but in truth there are probably at least 5 songs on the Daughtry album (same style) alone that are better.

 

In a year of brilliant modern rock ballads, i doubt whether 'Rain' would even make my top 10??!

 

And in fact, here are 10 modern rock ballads (off the top of my head) which are better (IMO of course!)

 

Skillet - Lucy

Coldrain - Deja Vu :bowdown:

Nural - Say What You Will

The Veer Union - Im Sorry

Monty Are I - Makin Sounds

Vaeda - Save You Saviour

Adelitas Way - Last Stand :bowdown:

Daughtry - One Last Chance :bowdown:

Halestorm - Bet U Wish U Had Me Back

New Device - In The Fading Light

I definitely don't agree about DAUGHTRY, the ballads on that thing are shite (and there are too many). Average album that one. I do think the SKILLET song is right up there, so are the VEER UNION/ADELITAS WAY tracks, but I'd probably have ATREYU's "Storm To Pass" as my No.2 track. None of those mentioned top the CREED track IMHO....

Glen, Geoff, that sounds good to me. You are right some of the songs released for the radio are not the best, so yeah I think that will work good for this thread to just list whatever singles from a release.

Geoff, to your point, I would like to buy the whole cd but I spend my money on the stuff that we really dive into on this board, i.e. Crashdiet, new House of Lords, things like that. I agree and would love to buy the whole cd because the B-side music is sometimes the best, like many of you I just can't afford every cd. That said, if someone says for example "Cavo's Champagne is good but the whole cd is worth owning", I'll track down samples and maybe get the cd.

I wasnt talking about the ballads........I was thinking 'What I Meant To Say', 'Ghost Of Me', 'Supernatural', 'Traffic Light', 'One Last Chance (ok, which is a ballad)'

 

& anyway, do you really think 'One Last Chance' is shite?? I think that's a great song....by anyones standard......surely?? Even you?? No?? Maybe not??

 

Anyway, there's 5 songs on Daughtry which piss on 'Rain' IMO.

 

For what its worth.........cheers

Monty Are I - Makin Sounds

Best song of 2009.

 

Glen's list is pretty good there, though I don't like the Daughtry song either. But yeah, if you insist on calling the New Device CD "modern rock", 'In The Fading Light' was one of the best songs of 2009.

 

While we're on the subject of Cavo, the song 'Ghost' from that CD is also one of the best songs from the year. And if we're talking modern rock ballads in 2009 don't dare overlook the trio from No Love Lost; 'Start over', 'Tell me' and 'Wasted'.

Exactly what I was talking about! I would never get around to hearing some of these songs. I haven't gotten to all of them but so far that Atreyu tune is great, Kings and Queens is ok, not bad, and that Adam Lambert song is not bad and I feel it will grow on me (and I NEVER would have heard this one otherwise). Thanks!

My apologies to the Glen-ster. And I think Tim may have done the same thing as me. When I saw the title I just automatically assumed it was one of the ballads on the CD, and because ALL of the ballads on the actual CD were absolute shit I said it was shit. However, just went through the bonus tracks for this album on my Ipod yesterday and there it was - 'One last chance' - and like Glen says, it is an excellent track. So my apologies.

 

Man listening to those bonus tracks makes me sooo angry!! If they'd cut the album down to 10 songs and only left 'No Surprise', 'Ghost of me' and 'Supernatural' on it and completely scrapped the rest of it and instead added 'Long Way', 'One Last Chance', 'What Have We Become', 'On the Inside', 'Traffic Light' (amazing track), 'Get Me Through', 'Back Again' (as good as the best song recorded for this CD) so that the final track list looked like this (in no particular order):

 

1. 'No Surprise'

2. 'Ghost of me'

3. 'Supernatural'

4. 'Long Way'

5. 'One Last Chance'

6. 'What Have We Become'

7. 'On the Inside'

8. 'Traffic Light'

9. 'Get Me Through'

10. 'Back Again

 

(maybe even throw the 4th and 5th best other songs for 'Leave this town' on there to make it a 12 tracker, if totally necessary)

 

Honestly, if they'd done this the album would ( a ) have been stunning, ( b ) destroyed the debut and ( c ) actually featured very high in my top 10 list. The way that 'Leave this town' was actually presented is probably the worst song choice selection I will ever witnessed in my life.

No mate it was Sony being clever and trying to make money out of the regular punter by making them buy every bonus track in different formats.

 

I actually did just as you have said and have a very similar listing on my ipod...........hence why I rated this so highly.....4th or 5th if i remember correctly!

 

If you look back on the original thread i was arguing this point at the time. All those guys saying the Daughtry album is average needs those bonus tracks....most of them are awesome tracks.

Yeah 'What I meant to Say' needs to be on there as that is a great track too..............

Yeah, I'd probably agree. I remember there being one or two other decent tracks on the actual CD, but for the most part it was a bit of a trainwreck. And yeah, I agree that Sony was obviously very interested in raping people silly, but man I wish they'd saved the shithouse songs (that made it onto the CD) as the bonus tracks for people to track down.

 

Surely it would have been in everyone's best interest (label and artist) to have a good album primarily (that would get good reviews and be popular and therefore sell more copies), and then still have half a dozen bonus tracks for people to track down (and subsequently be disappointed). :lol:

Erik Gronwall - Destination Anywhere http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuYmDMZxXn8

I'm digging the new Linkin Park "The Catalyst"

 

I heard the full disc at the weekend, is very electronic and quite progressive. Hard work on first listen but pretty intriguing....

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me. 
    • not worked up. I couldn't give a stuff about VH the band or EVH. Was never really a fan tbh outside of a handful of songs. But MM is a twat. Period.
