Need more high energy hard rock n roll!!
August 17, 2018 9:28 AM   Subscribe

Please help me think of or discover songs along the lines of the following examples so's I can keep on rocking!

Looking for stuff that rocks hard but is fun and danceable in the right situation.. party type stuff with a bit of an aggressive edge to it.

Examples would be...

Supersuckers - The Fight Song
Buckcherry - Lit Up
Bif Naked - Twitch
Silvertide - Not Coming Home
Shinedown - Sound of Madness
Faith No More - Epic
Basically anything by Danko Jones... alright what else??

Seems like late 90's/early 2000s is when this stuff was at its peak, and while I'm open to other eras, but please lets avoid your AC/DCs, your Aerosmiths, your Motley Crues, those awful hair metal bands etc... help me dig deep and find some forgotten gems of rock!

I am probably going to pay for this, but Chumbawamba - Tubthumping.

Also, I am still having trouble pasting links in Chrome.

Ah, the mid 1990s. I vote for a punk cover of Over the Rainbow.

Andrew WK is the epitome of high energy major chord party rock at the turn of the century.

I'd add most of Dig Me Out by Sleater-Kinney to the list.
