@Bizaster
Eh ? 😕
How could the Rock musics from DrumMania are not real Rock music ?
There are some DrumMania songs have extended version and the artist who made those songs (Mutsuhiko Izumi) is very talented in Rock music.
He has ever performed his music live in Japan, a medley of his DrumMania musics.
How could Rock music from video games are not technically called real Rock music compared by standard Rock musics that not made for video games ?
What is the differences ?
BTW, have you listen any DrumMania songs I posted here ?
And what do you think about them ?

I posted only DrumMania songs since I only like kind of Rock songs from video games.

Edit: Here is one video of Live performance with his DrumMania song Jet World.

In my opinion, Rock musics can be came from any source, whether they are from standard Rock band or from video games since they are same Rock musics.

Have just been going back through this thread, and there are loads - loads! - of bands on here that I have never heard of

Should keep me occupied over the next few days

If you are into proggy, spacy, out-there stuff, Metaprogramação by Deafkids is a recent one for me, although is a few years old

@Bizaster Nice - enjoy them! The other album of theirs that I've listened to was Room on Fire, though that was quite recently. There's other bands I dig too, like The Beatles, Ween, and Nirvana.

@Anti-Matter I love video game music as well, but Bizaster's asking what rock album(s) and song(s) that are your favorites. That is, songs that are original and weren't made for any games in mind. Music and games are considered their own separate categories, which is why we mention stuff like Guns 'n Roses instead of say, music from Sonic or Mega Man games. Also, didn't you say that you're not a rock person to begin with?

@MarioLover92
Oh... I see. 😯
I was misunderstood about the rock musics from actual band and from video games.

@Bizaster
Oh, before that I thought my references about DrumMania songs will be categorized as same Rock songs as from actual rock band. 😕
I didn't know if rock songs from video games are different category as rock songs from actual band.

BTW, there are some actual slow rock songs that I have little interest about that has been featured on video games as cover licensed songs and I prefer the cover version than the original version for those certain songs.
What do you think about this cover version of Robinson by TDK design Inc ?

And here is Robinson original version by Spitz.

Notice, this song reference based on actual band.

Oh, also I have interest with this Rock song from actual Rock band Vanilla Ninja that this song has been featured on DrumMania V.
Liar by Vanilla Ninja on DrumMania V.

Can this song counted as actual Rock song too ? ☝

@Bizaster I'd say Nevermind is my favorite Nirvana album. I have a ton of nostalgia for it and it's just a cool album to listen to, lol.

Fact, Nirvana were the 3rd best singers of Nirvana songs. ;p

Elvana, an Elvis impersonator who does Nirvana songs.

Richard Cheese is a cheesy Las Vegas lounge singer who covers metal, punk and other alternative music. His Slipknot covers are brilliant.

@Bizaster
Off the top of my head, a list of fave songs from fave albums (at the moment):

  • Breadcrumb Trail from Spiderland by Slint
  • When You Sleep from Loveless by My Bloody Valentine
  • 59 Times The Pain from New Day Rising by Husker Du
  • Helen Forsdale from Mars78 by Mars
  • Dopesmoker from Dopesmoker by Sleep

So, all old tunes. This thread should help me find some new stuff though!

Maybe it's just Rambler who keeps mentioning them (I can't be arsed to check) but I'm surprised My Bloody Valentine have been mentioned so much. I'm not complaining as they are a good band, they are just one of those bands where time moves on and they are less relevant nowadays.

With something like music it’s almost impossible to have a single favourite anything, it jumps all over the place depending on my moods.

Maybe the below but I will probably change my mind in a hour to 5 completely different albums;
London Calling By The Clash
Love, Ire & Song By Frank Turner
Rage Against the Machine By Rage Against the Machine
Somewhere in the Between By Streetlight Manifesto
Mutter By Rammstein

I was right, if I list them now it would be;

Disintegration by The Cure
Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols by The Sex Pistols
Elephant by The White Stripes
Toxicty by System Of A Down
Songs For The Deaf by Queens Of The Stone Age

I was going to make some crack about them being the Goth Kylie Minogue, but neither deserve that.

Anyway, off to listen to Streetlight Manifesto as I've not heard of them before

Rambler

@Rambler Goth Kylie would just be Pale Waves.

I was them support Muse a few years ago and they were really good but when I try listening to them at home it has to be short doses as they are too pop for me.

While I agree with @Anti-Matter that "rock music" can be from any source (and I enjoyed Concertino in Blue!), the topic by @Bizaster is more specific on rock songs written by/for rock groups for the music itself, not for another entertainement such as videogames or movies.

Oh and @jump , I would avoid using lyrics as a comparison to what is "superior", etc. It is indeed nice to have songs about current problems, for sure! But songs can be just about anything, and what about amazing instrumental songs? Would a song against racism be better than a song about kicking everyone you see in front of you, by the lyrics alone? It's just a matter of personal liking.

So, about the topic itself: I don't listen to Grunge, just not my style. I've been listening to Hard Rock a lot recently! Mötley Crüe, Guns 'n Roses, Van Halen, Tesla, Whitesnake, Skid Row, Boston, Warrant... There is something in that 80s music that gives me energy, songs about enjoying life, having a nice girl etc etc hahahahaha

And other metal/rock bands I listen the most, in no particular order:

Iron Maiden
Helloween
Sonata Artica
Pantera
KISS
Angra
Rush
Nightwish (with Tarja)
Black Label Society
Megadeth
Stratovarius
Blink-182
Green Day
The Offsping
Misfits
Masterplan
Greta Van Fleet
Blind Guardian
Hibria

There are more, for sure. I also listen to Vulpeck, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, synthwave, deep house, EDM, lo fi... but that's off topic hahahaha If anyone knows a more recent band that I might like, given the ones I mentioned, please say it! I love to discover new songs!

Well yeah, a song about kicking people sounds rubbish ;p

I do agree about what you're saying however Anti was talking about specifically "experiences" so something that provokes thought is a more elevated (if that's the right word) experience than some background noises on a dance game he likes and it was an easier example to make. I could use a band like The Skints which shows a cross blends of genres or Gojira for their impressive technical ability to get the point across but I just chose a vid someone had already posted it the thread with it's lyrics happening to be the experience to highlight.

Also the subject of the song was about the toxic idea of masculinity which may appeal to Anti (it will probably just fly over his head like most things though) since he often complains about not fitting into the masculine male alpha type.

@Bizaster Fun fact about Dave Grohl. There's a band called Ghost* and if you don't know they are a tongue in cheek satanic band where the front man is a satanic pope and the rest of the band are "nameless ghouls" and wear masks. In the past when Ghost have played LA where Grohl lives he will become one of the nameless ghouls to play drums during the gig and it's not adverised so the entire crowd have no idea they have just seen him.

*Ghost are really fun for the people that don't know them.

@jump Ha, that's awesome trivia on Dave Grohl! Love him as the Devil in Tenacious D Beelzeboss and Tribute

Obs.: and yeah I'm with you regarding the other topic

Dave Grohl has legitimately earned the name the nicest guy in rock. Did anyone follow the drum battles he was having with a 10 year old girl last year? It ended up with him admitting defeating and writing a song dedicated to her lol.
