You know the drill.

Round 1

Let's start with Godsmack: Under your scars

This song genuinely got me through some tough times, I am serious this song was one of those songs that helped me cope when shit hit the fan in my life and I was suicidal. Full respect with it, blast it on replay it genuinely feels like god is speaking to you if you're in the situation and mindset I was in:

Use the method that you pay for the HD of (YT Music and YT Red both give HD for music videos)

Personally, I found Spotify to be the single best in quality and consistently being available for the best tracks out there, if you don't have any in HD format, stick to the YT vid.

I had the privilege of seeing Disturbed last week. They were absolutely amazing and I fell in love with their music. This is their song "In Another Time."

R1 Corrections:

I didn't name the song, which was 'Pain' by Three Days Grace.

I agree with Pro, Disturbed are fantastic at Rock. Here is my favourite of theirs:

Stricken
- Disturbed

Aside from being musically brilliant, it's is a very interesting flip on many poppy love songs, taking an alternate stance on what it's like to fall in love with a woman.

Note for some reason on their HQ version of the song on Spotify, there is some kind of hissing or air-leak sound, this seems to be solved by opening it in your app rather than the link provided itself in your browser and then selecting your app/program to play it instead of the browser. I do not know what causes it and suggest to listen to the song on the YT vid at first. On the other hand, you cannot grasp the true vocal quality of the song or brilliance of the guitar solo(s) without listening to the HQ version, so it's up to you.

Official Vimeo (same video as above): https://vimeo.com/122524822
Spotify - OPEN IN YOUR APP/PROGRAM AND PLAY VIA THAT (select in the options of the device you play on), THE BROWSER VERSION HAS A HISSING/LEAK SOUND: https://open.spotify.com/track/6RJdYpFQwLyNfDc5FbjkgV

Personally, I don't see how that's a rock song rather than a Country song but it seems the band Fleetwood Mac is classified as Rock overall, so alright...
