You need some Dylan, Clash and Ramones.

Also, since you like Zeppelin alot you should get some Yardbirds. It was the pre-cursor to Zeppelin and had Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton in it. Great blues rock. Oh and you definitely need some more Rolling Stones, otherwise you can't call yourself a rock fan.

Based on your collection I would say you need....:

311 "S/T" (blue album)
Dave Matthews Band "Crash"
Deftones "Around The Fur"
Foo Fighters "Colour and The Shape"
Goo Goo Dolls "A Boy Named Goo"
Radiohead "O.K. Computer"
Pearl Jam "Vs."
Smashing Pumpkins "Siamese Dream"
Springsteen "Born To Run" (or "The Rising")


Nice collection though. Looks an awful lot like mine.

Here's my suggestion: destroy your CD collection.

Other than Creed, Avril, and the NOW and Jock Jams compliations no .

To be fair you can check out my cd collection here and critique it.

The only thing you're missing is "Now that's what I call Jock Rock vol.3"

...oh wait... there it is

You have 'Pablo Honey' by Radiohead yet you don't have 'The Bends' i think that may need to be rectified.

How about 'The Eagles' or Don Henley and maybe Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble or a bit of Joe Satriani

if you like 311's From Chaos, you absolutely need to get the self titled blue album and GRASSROOTS... these albums will BLOW YOU AWAY.

Also, no Foo collection is complete without the self titled and colour and the shape... trust me...awesome records.

if you like that Nickelback album, check out their earlier CURB and THE STATE...also, the latest 3 Doors Down is ten times better than there debut...

Now some suggestions of bands you DON'T HAVE...

Have you heard of Finger Eleven?? They are pretty heavy, but have great melodies too... check out TIP or GREYEST OF BLUE SKIES... their new album comes out on tuesday...

also, Cold is a decent band you may like, check out their latest, Year of the Spider...

also, based on your cds, you may like OK GO. Their self titled album is amazingly good...

I'd also recommend SAM ROBERTS... I think his new album WE WERE BORN IN A FLAME is coming out stateside soon...it's a great record.

I heard that curb and the state weren't that good, and I'm not a fan of the two 3 doors down songs that are currently on the radio. Is the album much better then that.

Who do they both sound like.

Good reccomendations, I'll look into them.

I agree to an extent. There's a LOT of crap in your collection IMO. I would say destroy about 50% of your collection.

Really no reason not to have some King's X in your collection. Try Dogman, Tapehead, or Ear Candy.

alright... well, OK GO is kind of like a Weezer meets....hmm...not sure how to describe them... if you can find any online samples, check out "So Damn Hot" and "Get Over It"...

Sam Roberts is kind of like a garage rock/folk/pop...that label sounds lame, but he's really great... I think the lead single in the US is "Brother Down" but also try to check out "Where Have All The Good People Gone"...

and I just realized, I didn't recommend one of my favourite bands of the last year or so... AUDIOVENT.

Their album DIRTY SEXY KNIGHTS IN PARIS is frigin' wicked. They are kind of a nirvana meets incubus type band (I hate labelling them like that though, they are much more) and actually the lead singer, Jason Boyd is Brandon's little brother... a very rockin' album... I think the singles were "The Energy" and "Rain"... might be able to find audio samples over at amazon (or whatever :P )

but give those a try if you're looking for something new

LOL. I too agree to chuck out a good lot of your discs. Maybe 75% of them anyway. Default, Good Charlotte, Avril, and especially CREED should all be thrown in a flame.

Keep the classics though (Led Zep and The Beatles).

I noticed you have Lateralus from Tool. I think you need to run, not walk, and go pick up Aenima & Undertow.

got a few more cd's today
The Clash "the singles" they didn't have the essential cd, but this will do, the kinks with you really got me ( I know, supposingly their music is much better in other releases, but I just wanted it for the one song. Plus it was only 10 bucks.
The Ataris solong astoria, and ozzy osbournes no more tears.
