Maroon 5, kicked ASS, they are so awesome, their CD is full of soulful, great songs, and i recently saw them on tour with Matchbox 20 and Sugar Ray, and they were unbelieveable, so you can say they are 'pop' or you can say they 'suck' but in the real world, they are the best music can get

Maroon 5

Posted by visiblebreath:
well i think a couple bands should get mentioned. the first one that comes to mind is "BLINDSIDE" one of the band that came through heavy in 2002 "GLASSJAW" new one worship and tribute a strong album following up their last one. "AUDIOVENT", "LOUDERMILK" "PRESURE 4-5"... oh yeah can't forget "DREDG" i believe these bands will bethe next to take over. not so much as becoming the nect Linkin park or the next deftones but making a huge mark on the ears of listeners! they all are distictly different and each brings something different to the table of rock, which should give you all a warm fuzzy feeling inside!

dredg - el cielo the only reason why someone would not vote for this album is because they have not had the ability to hear it. it blows everyone out of the water. go check them out, they are like nothing you have heard.

Posted by mad emily:
korn is the best

Posted by Love Child:
silvertide for best new rock artist.

Posted by Nothing:
"The Art of Balance" by Shadows Fall

Posted by Eric94:
The album with the most good songs was easily "Elva" by Unwritten Law. I am still enjoying it after dozens of listens. It also had the 2 best songs of 2002 "up all night" and "seeing red". This was a no-brainer.

SOAD-Steal this Album, better than 2/3 of the sh*t you other people put down. Andrew WK. give me a f*ckin break. have any of you people heard of flaw-through the eyes, best album of the year (i know it was officially released in 01 but it was close enough)

Posted by Bruce:
The Vines - Highly Evolved- Beatles meets some drunken lsd powertrip. Excellent.

Posted by ant:
coldplay's a rush of blood, weezer's maladroit. doves' last broadcast and the u2 compilation 3ple cd. that's all i can think of as of now.

Posted by leppard81:
My faves of the year are: Harem Scarem - Weight of the world American Hifi - s/t Def Leppard - x

Posted by atmoravi:
best album: tori amos "scarlet's walk", brilliant, inelligent, very well produced record. as always with tori overlooked by media. best rock: coldplay "a rush of blood to the head". best live: sheryl crow, munich, march - that was quite a show! the album is a disenchantment though

Posted by mich:
nickleback,the best live band around

Posted by Razjml:
Album of the Year: Flaming Lips- Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Best Hard Rock album should probaby go to Full Collapse by Thursday (If it was even released in 2002). They might be the most overexposed "emocore" band at the moment but they deserve it. Haven't listened to Wiretap Scars yet (I turned it down over something else in the cd store just a couple days ago) but Cut Your Ribbon is damn good. One of the DJs at the college station around here named it the best song of the year- I don't personally think it is, but it's close enough for me.

Tom Waits-Blood Money Nile-In Their Darkened Shrines Gwar-Violence Has Arrived Ween-Live At Stubbs Blood Storm-Ancient Wraith of Ku Tom Waits-Alice Disarray are awesome there's no such thing a a good nu-metal album, this place is starting anger me, man i hate people and their crappy pisspoor music

Posted by Mr. huh? saying, "My Generation Sucks!":
Aimee Mann's 'Lost in Space'

Posted by Stormreaver:
Audioslave rocks-- but still have to check out Queens of the Stone Age and Dredg. Tool's tour was awesome!

Posted by Nag:
I would go with Petty or Down for album of the year, as they are the only albums I have bought this dismal year past. How the hell did Andrew W.K. get on any best of list? Im glad the guy likes to party, but best album....nah!

Posted by Sean:
The Used is definitely the best new artist and they have the best album of the year by far

Posted by diana :
I think Bowling For Soup's Drunk Enough To Dance is definitely one of the best albums of 2002. Look out for them on tour, they're awesome! Can you add them to your Artists A-Z section please?

Posted by Holly:
I agree, bowling for soup rock. you need them on the list!

Posted by Heather:
Bowling For Soup should be on the list, they rock!! Fantastic live band and very entertaining on stage! Check out their latest album Drunk Enough To Dance and their other great albums. I'm glad I heard about them this year!

Posted by yankeefan:
No question about it DOWNII is the best album of 2002. This album shows what music is all about TALENT. Something bands like linkin Park and all the other NU Metal acts.

Posted by MALKAV:
