    Good call Boxhill on Heart. Classic rock and strong female voice would make sense for most of these ladies.

    "Tijuana Jail" From Gilby's Pawnshop Guitars CD would be good for many of these singers.

    The show is called Rockstar:Supernova and they put Johnny Cash songs....
    They don't want Heavy metal songs but drill the singers when they sing softer songs. Heavy and rock bands do have ballads and softer songs:

    I'd like to hear:

    G'n'R: November Rain, Don't Cry, Patience, Sweet Child O' Mine.
    Motley Crue: Home Sweet Home
    Aerosmith: .....................
    Bon Jovi: .......................
    Ozzy Osbourne: Mama I'm Coming Home, No More Tears....
    Whitesnake: Ain't No Love...., Here I Go Again, Judgment Day, Still Of The Night
    Scorpions: Still Loving You, Rock You Like A Hurricane...
    Alice Cooper: Poison...
    and lesser know bands like: Dokken, White Lion, Ratt, Warrant...


    and yes, I'm stuck in the 80's.

    To some extent I agree, except that Cash's songs became very big with the Alt Rocker community a few years back, when not only did he do countrified versions of rock songs, but a lot of Alt Rockers did authorized versions of HIS songs. It became "cool" then I guess. I think the point of it is supposed to be that good songs can stand the test of some reinvention, rather than the stuffy assumptions people sometimes make about certain versions being "sacred"--a stance not at all in line with how music has been regarded historically, where it's been all about songs being part of oral tradition which are passed on generation to generation (or aural tradition, I guess, if we are referring to classical or jazz). The people who use the "how dare you, that's sacred" logic tend not to think in those terms, however. But most anyone with classical, folk, blues or jazz grounding does.

    Anyway, my annoying lecture aside, I guess, part of my point is that while I agree the show needs some hard rock ammo, that doesn't mean it doesn't also need room for them to be creative. Cash gives that room--if you aren't somebody like Zayra, who would abuse it--by no doubt putting a "thump thump thump" disco beat behind "Ring of Fire" and doing it in her halting weird alien Bjork monotone.

    These aren't bad, but some may be more accessible and modern that others. White Stripes, for example.

    Weezer is getting to be an "older" group, and may have never been a vibe the metalheads like, but some of the stuff on their most recent album, "Make Believe", is just KILLER monster rock.

    I'd DEFINITELY add The Strokes to this list. And probably The Hives. Maybe OK Go and The Killers (or did they already have The Killers? I remember Franz Ferdinand but I'm not so sure about The Killers.). Maybe The Vines.

    The problem is that a lot of rock has kind of passed Tommy and the boys by. A lot of the current stuff is an outgrowth of Punk music or New Wave and wouldn't suit them at all.

    They sang the Killers last year and this year (Toby sang one of their songs last night--"Somebody Told Me" I think). Strokes, Vines and Hives would be fantastic!

    Right. I knew that. I just had a blip. :-)

    The thing is if you can see yourself clear to Franz Ferdinand and The Killers, those others aren't that far away. The thing is, I still am not sure that the Supernova members GET this music which is well... younger than they are so to speak. I mean would a group like Sugarcult work for them? I dunno. A lot of the newer "harder" groups do away with part of the down and dirty formula which was always present in heavy metal and lean more towards the glee and high energy of punk.

    Even Butch Walker seems like an odd fit with the Supernova guys. He might approve of someone doing The All-American Rejects, for example, BECAUSE HE PRODUCED THEM. But do Tommy and the boys respect The All-American Rejects? Who knows? New Found Glory? The Ataris? Bowling for Soup? Simple Plan? Jimmy Eat World? Do they own these records in THEIR collections?

    Heck, I even have my doubts about what they know or respect about blink-182 or Green Day. Alt Rock/Indie rock and Metal really AREN'T all that close.

    You know, I was thinking that Dilana's voice would do great with GnR songs. I'd love to hear her do Sweet child o'Mine or Patience. I think she'd kill with those songs.

    Whoever mentioend Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence, I'm in total agreement. I loved that song. I was thinking it was called something else, though..? I never remember stuff like that, however, so I'm sure I'm wrong.

    A little further thinking makes me wonder why we aren't seeing more stuff like Korn, Linkin Park and Nickelback. I mean those are the closest to legitimate heirs from current top-of-the-heap bands to Tommy and the boys.

    I totally agree with you! Couldn't believe they had a Johnny Cash song as a choice. They need more metal! Hope that dark haired girl with the accent goes next, she sucks. The singers this season aren't as good as the last. I still only like three and that's it.
