C**k rock? never heard the term before, but it pretty accurately describes a good portion of mainstream rock radio nowadays. (i.e. Nickelback, Hinder, Buckcherry, et. al.)

I must also give props to the newer bands keeping metal dirty-sounding - bands like Clutch and High On Fire. You must check 'em out!

Not "metal" per se, but this was the best hard rock album of last year imho, actually best album of the year, period.

I wouldn't really class Bon Jovi as hard rock or heavy metal!  :D

Yeah! But there are some many different genres to choose from I thought I'd classify them in with the others I listed so as I wouldn't need to start a ton of different threads.

People are welcome to mention bands that aren't exactly hard rock or heavy metal, but that are close enough.

one of the earliest power ballads, and far and away the best as far as I'm concerned:   You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

If you even think you're into hard rock or metal, you must check out Montreal's Priestess. Their latest album came out in October in Canada, but it's finally coming out here in the USA on February 2. Anyway, they're streaming the whole thing at their MySpace page: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Cletus, I think that was a joke or an old rumor. Saw the same thing on a couple other boards.

c@ck rock = poodle rock  ;D  which is exactly what Bon Jovi is haha. No offense to you Jovi fans. I used to like them alot when I was like, 13. Jon and Ritche truly are great song writers. It's just so damn easy to poke fun at them.

Why didn't I see this thread before?

Some of my faves:

Dream Theater
Iron Maiden
Megadeth
Nevermore
Opeth
Iced Earth
Evergrey
Lamb of God
Shadows Fall
Avenged Sevenfold
Fear Factory
Rainbow
Dio
Alice Cooper
Judas Priest
Queensryche

I could go on an on

I used to quite like The Scorpions.

I used to quite like The Scorpions , TOO

My trouble is I never stopped quite liking The Scorpions

Me & my girl, Jeri are very keyed up for they are coming to AZ in July ;D
We might haul ass from LasVegas after the RUSH show in Aug ( Rush not in AZ this tour ! ) & Go to Colorado
And see Both RUSH ( Aug 17 ) & Scorpions ( Aug 16th ) AGAIN !

Last night I picked Jeri up for a night out & she had purchaced the new Scorpions - Sting in the Tail
As we drove to our various destinations we got to listen to the new album
on my upgraded factory Infinity subwoofer stereo in my new Soul
Sound's like vintage Scorpions, Very basic, great vocals
We spent 30 minutes parked in her driveway  ;)
while we listened to various tracks again & talked about our summer Rock Road Trip ( AZ - NV - CO )

BTW - Isn't Bon Jovi Country Act now ?
Like Kid Rock, Kid Rock is the "headliner" @ "Country Thunder" here in Phx next week, he, Kid, even has "Rock" in his name ???

Don't see AC/DC - Dio - Scorpions - going "country"
