Come on. Show the Rebels some Love.

71 Mother Mother

Fantastic music. Their newest album "Sticks" is INCREDIBLE. They're capable of creating stories within their music and I think that is just great. They have a really awesome sound too. The guitar work is addicting to listen to and their harmonies are mesmerizing.

This list is embarrassing

73 Dayglo Abortions

Dayglo is great. These dudes are hilarious too.

74 Tokyo Police Club V 1 Comment
75 The Trews

Great band! I've seen them live in NYC and Cleveland. A true modern Classic Rock band! Frontman Colin MacDonald is an amazing voice in the tradition of Paul Rogers and Jimmy Page. Lead axeman and brother John Angus MacDonald delivers fantastic riffs and leads in the tradition of Page, Richards, and Townsend among other iconic players.

These guys put on one hell of a good show! Check out an acoustic set if you get a chance!

Correction: I meant to compare Collin's vocal style to Robert Plant, not Jimmy Page. Sorry for the confusion.
