    Well, I just got out of jail a bit less than 2 months ago. I did 5 years in the can. I missed a lot of music. I like Muse, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, My Chemical Romance, Dallas Green, uh...Modest Mouse...
    Anyone got some suggestions? The radio station I used to listen to for good alt. rock (99.3 The Fox) is slowly killing itself playing classic rock. I do not want to pay Spotify.

    What were you in jail for, if I may ask? :) Did it have something to do with Korean cars? :shifty:

    Alleged armed robbery. That's about all I will say as the matter is on appeal. What about good alt. Rock? :nuts:

    Hey Squire, I like this one. It rocks. The other one isn't quite to my taste. I would rather listen to Rascall Flats. They're good too.

    Got anything else? Anything that'd have emerged in the past couple years?

    Disturbed did a wicked cover of Sounds of Silence, it’s almost haunting

    The original Sound of Silence is better in my personal opinion...

    It’s a classic, doubtful anything will top it - Paul Simon loved the cover though

    They did it live as a duet with Miles Kennedy, it was pretty sweet.

    I went through the entire discography of The Doors after listening to "The End", and I think they are a one hit wonder. Just that one song. Imo.

    There were a few decent songs, but The End was definitely the big one for them

    If you like Wicked Game you may like Corey Taylor’s cover (Singer from Slipknot and Stone Sour)

    I’m kind of a Corey Taylor junkie - his vocals are fantastic

    Mind you, most of his work is screaming, but the man can sing
