woot Stratovarius is awesome.. I'm not really updated with the current music scene most of the song i've been listening to are really old now but I can't seem to stop listening to these guys like Kamelot, Rhapsody, Stratovaius, Sonata Arctica, Dragon Force, Lucca Trulli, Yngwei Malmsteen not to forget Iron Maiden and Nightwish (its sad that their vocalist left them)..
Should have had separate polls. Rock is good, Metal is okay, but only some types. Screamo (kinda classified under both but it's own genre) is absolute shit. Emo that tries to pass off as 'rock', is absolute shit.
