* Music/ElmerBernstein. ''Film/TheGreatEscape. Film/ToKillAMockingbird. Film/TheMagnificentSeven. Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. National Geographic fanfare. And that's just some of his more than 150 music scores in more than 50 year-career as composer of films and television.

* For a band that's been around in some form since 1997, Music/{{Showbread}} sure doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Every album they've made since they first signed with Tooth & Nail is solid gold in musical form, from the post-hardcore of ''No Sir, Nihlism Is Not Practical'' to the prog/punk/pop sound of ''Who Can Know It?''; the utterly-unique story-based format of ''Anorexia'' and ''Nervosa'' to the classic rock-inspired ''Age of Reptiles'', and of course the electro-punk of ''The Fear of God''. Showbread has basically been making amazing music in whatever style tickles their fancy for a wonderful long time, and each album they make is even more amazing than the last. Their next album ''Cancer'' will apparently be a science-fiction concept album with a sound inspired by glam rock artists like DavidBowie and the Darkness, and I'm practically drooling just thinking about it.

* WithinTemptation. Like {{Evanescence}}, but older (and much cooler), they blend orchestral and gothic themes with metal to make epic music. ''The Silent Force'' changed the way I look at metal forever.

* "Hello" by {{Evanescence}} is an amazing song, especially the line "Has no one told you? She's not breathing". It's a great way for Amy Lee to honor her dead little sister.

* This list has so much need for some classic jazz throwbacks it's not even funny. You are never as cool as when you are chilling to some Music/JohnColtrane, Music/CharlesMingus, or Music/TheloniousMonk. Even the lighter stuff, like Music/LouisArmstrong and Ella Fitzgerald keep it smooth.

* Raise a glass to [[FallOutBoy Patrick Stump's]] voice? Having heard him cover everything from JoyDivision to Music/TomWaits to Music/MichaelJackson, it's a safe bet there is ''nothing'' he can't sing.

* JoyDivision all the freaking way. The music they create will make you feel all kinds of sad.

*** Don't forget his successor at {{Rare}}, Grant Kirkhope. The soundtrack he composed for ''BanjoKazooie Nuts 'N Bolts'' is fucking FANTASTIC.

* Let's hear it for Music/HueyLewisAndTheNews. They were basically Music/Chicago in the 80's when Chicago wasn't Chicago, crafting their own unique style by combining 80's rock and 50's rock 'n roll with sweet jazz riffs to give us some great songs for chilling.

* Music/{{Disturbed}}. They have one of those rare golden discographies with no filler and where every song has some interesting and often satisfying edge that screams "effort". They're one of those bands that has no MagnumOpus because every single album is absolute genius, each in different ways, yet still they always sounds like they're on the upward, like they still haven't reached their peak. And like Music/{{Queen}}, their song-writing has a perfect balance and synergy where no member isn't valuable, where each instrument tightly fits together like a well-oiled machine, with each member deeply understanding the other's strengths and weaknesses inside and out as if they can read each other's mind. All this and they still manage to hold onto the teachings and spirit of Metal without outright copying the greats, forging ahead with their own identity; 80's riffs given a modern edge and soloing tastefully interwoven with the song, complex and hard-hitting drumming somewhere between Scott Travis and Vinnie Paul with enough maturity for restraint if it can better the song, bass rhythms that tie the others together in an air-tight harmony yet still managing to over-power and out-speed the instruments it aids and vocals with all the grit, speed, power and beauty that would make metal's legendary voices proud.

* Awesome in {{superband}} form comes from {{Chickenfoot}}. JoeSatriani on guitar was enough for [[Tropers/{{Xaris}} me]], but with VanHalen's Sammy Hagar on vocals and Michael Anthony on bass, plus Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith on drums, this band is pure concentrated rock.
