We want to pay tribute to the top five bands with a unique sound. They are unique in their style, unique in a way that no other band has been able to duplicate successfully on their own.
Out of all of the genres these band have successfully created a sound that is appealing and unique. Their music has a large fan base and music that tops many charts. Yes, they may fit into metal or blues, yet their uniqueness makes them stand out.
Here are a metal girl’s top five for uniqueness. Please enjoy the videos of these bands awesome in their uniqueness of musical talent.
#5. What do these unique players look like? This virtual band was formed in 1997. Their debut album 'Gorillaz' in 2001sold over seven million copies and earned them a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful virtual band.
Rage Against the Machine
#4. This rap/metal band formed in 1991 and are from the land where great musicians are made...Los Angelos. Rage has sold over 19 million albums...so sad they have no plans to record as of this year.
#3. Forget the fact that this grunge band only released three albums in their seven year span, they are still one of the most influential bands....ever! The tragic death of founder Curt Cobain ended any future recordings; however, awesome drummer Dave Grohl, went on to found another awesome band, the Foo Fighters. Though not drumming for Foo Fighters, Dave has proven he is also a phenomenal guitarist and vocalist.
System of a Down
#2. Formed in 1992 this band is from Southern California. System of a Down, also known as SOAD, are pioneers in the music world. Their sound is unique, and lead vocalist Serj Takian rocks...in 2006 their hit B.Y.O.B. won best hard rock performance...their unique sound is timeless.
#1. Considered a garage rock/blues band, this amazing rock duo is straight out of the motor city, Detroit, Michigan. Yes, we said duo. Jack White...guitar and keyboards, Megan White....drums. Their gutteral and bluesy sound has yet to be matched. The White Stripes are our #1 band for uniqueness.
