Damn, you have good taste in music! Green Day is the best but The Clash, The Who, AC/DC, and Bowling for Soup would be on my list, and a lot others. I really like most of those bands! Have a good life, everyone!!!

Rage Against The Machine anyone?? come on!!
ive got 43 of their songs and i could just listen to all of them over and over and over.
they are music revolutionists: theyve 'created' and 'defined' their own genre. i really struggle to find any band like them, i mean, i had a good look at audioslave. yeah theyre good, but only because of chris cornells voice, other than that theyre just alright. they dont really have a drive like rage. With rage, they have so much passion in what they do and stand for. theyre the ultimate band, combining rap, hip hop, punk, funk, rock, heavy riffs and innovative sounds from tom morellos solos. all this comes from just four elements: vocals, guitar, bass and drums, nothing else.
zack de la rochas lyrics are so meaningful and passionate, have you ever seen him live? at the end of quite a lot of RATMs songs you can see him just crouching at the gtound, almost as if hes crying, he absolutely rages. they rage against corporate america, corrupt US government, corrupt police force, basically politics itself. the phrase "rage against the machine" can be derived from karl marx, writer of the communist-manifesto and founder of the marxism ideology. basically, he was talking about how people in society were becoming rebellious anarchists, rebelling against the government. "raging" against the machine is like "stickin it to the man". Rebelling against authority.
There is no other way i can describe this band without using the words 'pure passion'. you dont find many bands like that, especially not one like blink 182.
p.s: if anyone knows of any bands like RATM, please help me out. i really cant find any that do them justice.
I like Rage and Audioslave and can't really listen to Blink 182, But you know what's really interesting? If you listen to the vocal rap style on something like Regegades of Funk and compare it to the Sugarhill Gang's Rappers delight - it's so similar....they just added a whole lot of noise in the production of Rage's stuff.
I think the Sugarhill gang compares vocally to Rage:
This is my favorite audioslave song- and they sound like a cross between Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots- everyone is influenced by someone:

The Punch Brother's are two for two in really great albums!
Punch and Antifogmatic are two hard to define (genre wise) albums. One part Americana, one part country, and one half part rock = 1 whole awesomesaurus set of albums!!
Just seen the following tweet from Chris Thile, lead singer and mandolin player:
I'm having an awfully good time working on the next batch of Punch with the boys. #eflatminorforyourhealth
