Linkin Park entered the mainstream with a bang with their multi-platinum-selling debut album, 'Hybrid Theory.' Their sophomore album, 'Meteora' has earned the band a much larger global fanbase. The band's current release 'Minutes to Midnight,' is their first since 2004. Paramore describe their music simply as energetic, emotional and fun. Their live show is an explosion of high energy that showcases the band's relentless drive and desire to connect with and entertain the audience, and their enthusiasm is catching. Avenged Sevenfold effectively annihilates the distinction between punk and metal. The band eschews punk's loud-fast rules but artfully combines punk rock with melody, metal's white-knuckle intensity and powerful wails of unflinching lyrics and an adventurous spirit. Angels & Airwaves features former blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge alongside Hazen Street and Box Car Racer guitarist David Kennedy, ex-The Distillers bassist Ryan Sinn and The Offspring drummer Atom Willard. Their debut album is titled, 'We Don't Need to Whisper.' One of the original Southern California, hardcore-punk bands of the early '80s, Bad Religion has stuck around for so long by tightening its musical execution and not dumbing down to its audiences. Serj Tankian is a musician, activist and songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist of the alternative metal band System of a Down, as well as, along with Tom Morello, the co-founder of Axis of Justice, a nonprofit organization.
