    Ok, I have another trip this week (just got back from China and now I'm leaving for Seattle), and I want some new music to entertain me on the plane.

    Here are some of the artists I like and listen to on a regular basis

    -Dropkick Murphys
    -Flogging Molly
    -Street Dogs
    -Ducky Boys
    -Weezer
    -The Ramones
    -Rise Against
    -The Beatles
    -Aerosmith
    -AC/DC
    -The Real McKenzies
    -Black Sabbath
    -Bob Marley
    -Children of Bodom
    -Walls of Jericho


    Any suggestions for songs/bands/albums would be great, I have the zune pass, so I can download pretty much anything I like.

    Thanks

    I've heard a few of their songs, some of their stuff is decent, but I prefer true techno, they are mixing to many genres together for my liking.

    Since you like Romones, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly I think you would strongly recommend you check out Social Distortion, Pennywise, MxPx, and NOFX. That will give you a real good taste of some of the founders of modern punk and can still rock out to this day. Also check out Tiger Army.
    Getting outside of punk and rock-a-billy check out some Five Finger Death Punch, Black Label Society (Ozzy did some songs with them), Chevelle and Tool

    From the punk perhaps:
    • Streetlight Manifesto - although it's ska punk
    • Bad Religion
    • Suicide Machines - another excellent ska punk band, although their newer stuff was a little harder
    • Lagwagon - another modern punk band
    • Bouncing Souls - another modern punk band
    • At The Drive-in

      Edit - Heading into more skate/melodic/swedish punk territory:
    • Millencolin
    • Randy - although good look finding the punk band with this name when you search :)
    • No Fun at All

    And unrelated to your current listening:
    • Girl Talk - songs completely made from samples, with a mashup of rock and rap that works very well - get his latest album for any price you want from here (including free)

    Thanks for all the suggestions, I have the odd single song from a few of those artists, and I'll admit I've never heard of a bunch of them :p.

    Time for me to go listening :D

    I've just got to second Pendulum and The Prodigy, and I should throw The Qemists in there too. Coming from someone who used to be dedicated to classic rock and punk, these guys are IMHO the next step forward in music. The Qemists may be a little too out-there for your first tastes, but if you like either of the first two then you need to check those guys out.

    Back to the rock-ish side of things:
    +1 to Rolling Stones, George Thurogood, Soundgarden
    The Stone Roses
    Bob Seger
    Gorillaz
    Thin Lizzy
    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    It really depends on what exactly you like about some of the music on your list.
    If you like the technicality about Children of Bodom, i'd gladly recommend Trivium's latest two offerings ("The Crusade" and "Shogun") - both of the killer.
