Best Rock Song of 2011

2011 was a huge year for rock music. We saw some huge releases from some incredible bands, as well as a great comeback or two. In fact, this category was one of the toughest from me to decide on, and the one in which most of my personal bias will be coming out. Oh well. It’s my blog!

After looking at the nominees, I realized that I had chosen five very different bands. However, each one created in my opinion, an excellent rock track. Let’s take a look at them shall we?

Dropkick Murphys – Going Out In Style

Fist up, we have the Dropkick Murphys with their Celtic-Punk style ballad. This album had a brilliant concept, and the lead single was an intense track that showcased said brilliance.

Foo Fighters – Rope

The Foo Fighters are practically rock royalty, and their comeback album proved that they have no intentions of slowing down any time soon. Rope ranks among their best work.

Radiohead – Loutus Flower

Radiohead also made a comeback with The King of Limbs. It proved to be an experimental album, with ambient sounds and a more abstract concept. It wasn’t for everyone, but I dug it.
Red – Lie to Me (Denial)

Red released a killer album with Until We Have Faces, but Lie to Me was undoubtedly it’s the best song.

Yellowcard – For You and Your Denial

After taking a hiatus, Yellowcard returned with an excellent pop-punk release. You and Your Denial was a strong track that made me wonder why this band is so under rated.

And with all of that said…I have to give the award for Best Damn Rock Song of 2011 to…
Foo Fighters – Rope
