Sometimes you just need the volume and intensity that can only delivered by a solid thundering rock band in full stride! No band in the world knows the blueprint for good old fashioned Rock N Roll better than AC/DC, their masterpiece Back In Black is full of classic riffs, hard hitting drums and Brian Johnson’s signature voice and lyrical flair.
Foo Fighters Greatest Hits shows one of the biggest bands in the world today at their finest, from the early days classic “Big Me” through the punk influenced “Monkey Wrench” all the way to the stadium monster anthem “Best Of You” and everything between, not forgetting the ultimate alternative modern classic “Everlong” and two tracks only to be found on this collection “Wheels” & “Word Forward”.
There can’t be a rock fan out there that hasn’t heard the lead single from Kings Of Leon’s Only By The Night; Surely “Sex On Fire” has to go down as one of the most omnipresent songs of the last decade, but this album is so much more than a one trick pony also featuring the massive tracks “Use Somebody” & “Revelry”.
You can’t have a modern rock music collection without including the irrefutable legendary self titled debut from Rage Against The Machine, with Tom Morello pushing all manner of boundaries on the guitar and Zack De La Rocha delivering emotionally charged politically centred lyrics that can’t be ignored. Some have called this album a pre-curser to rap metal most just call it a modern classic, and if that’s not enough it even features a UK Christmas number one single; the festively titled “Killing IN The Name”.
