A Small Victory – Faith No More

This song takes me right back to high school. Mike Patton is up there on the musical talent scale with Danny Elfman.

Big Time Rush – Windows Down

First off, Big Time Rush paid Blur for the use of the sample so no “They stole it” arguments. Besides everything is a remix.

I love Blur’s Song no.2 (mostly because I feel like a rock god playing it on Rocksmith) and my inner DJ would love to see the crowd go nuts with a slam mix into this song! WHOO HOO!

Gravity Kills – Guilty

Another of my favs from the early 90s. I listened to this song (on the Mortal Kombat Soundtrack) over and over again because of the technological advancements of  the video game Hexen: Beyond Heritic. The game (a fantasy-based step-brother to the more popular Doom series) allowed players to take out the game CD after loading up and insert your own music cd that would play in the background! Good times.

From Wikipedia

Gravity Kills is an American industrial rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. Their music was described by one critic as “a blending of eerie industrial rock with a pop-infused melodic chorus and a bit of hard-core head banging.”[1]

The band was formed in 1994. They had their first hit single with “Guilty“, a track later released on their self-titled album Gravity Kills. Gravity Kills’ songs were featured on the soundtracks for Mortal KombatSevenEscape from L.A., and Kissing a Fool, as well as video games like Test Drive Off-Road.

Therapy? – Screamanger

Northern Ireland alt-rock/punk/pop band Therapy? rose to prominence in the 90s and then fell off the map. Their album Troublegum is still one of the few albums I can listen to from start to finish.

Nephew – Igen Og Igen

I love this band from a Remix version of Timbaland’s “The Way I Are.”

From Wikipedia:

Nephew is a Danish rock band, formed in 1996, in Århus. They had their breakthrough in 2004 with the release of their second album USADSB. The release coincided with lead singer Simon Kvamm‘s highly successful appearances on Danish television in the cult comedy show Drengene fra Angora, which helped boost the band’s popularity. USADSB went double platinum in Denmark and spawned six hit singles.

The band uses an unusual mixture of Danish and English in their lyrics;[1] they started singing mostly in English with just a few Danish lyrics, but gradually, they have been using Danish more frequently in their songs.

Hot Chip – I Feel Better

I found this video after seeing a post on a message board about “the weirdest video you’ll see today.” It certainly was. Of course the internet to a liking as soon as “Cancer Jesus” (as they call him) starts attacking the stand-in boy band by I’MA FIRIN’ MAH LAZAH from his mouth.

Bonus – Hot Chip – Ready for the Floor

Black Veil Brides – Fallen Angels

My niece told me about these guys. I like ’em a lot. I like that rock is getting back to face-paint, leather and screamy fast guitars! It even sounds like Shout at the Devil at the beginning.

Thumbs up from these guys:

I love how David Guetta is just rocking out to his own music!

I’m not a huge fan of dubstep but I do really like this song.
