Cage the Elephant. Love their first album. It's rock from a band that started out an hour's drive from where I live, so they have a special place in my heart. Also, if you have good enough memory to remember the commercial for Borderlands, their song "Ain't no Rest for the Wicked" was its theme.

@cowboydann: wow. i didn't expect to know half of anyone's list, but i only recognized two of yours (beetles & beachboys) and only because my brother used to listen to them. truthfully i only recognized those names-not really the albums. ya, i have old taste in music, but thought (wrongly) that i had atleast heard of a lot of others.

Dave Grohl. The man is a music god and seems like one of the coolest people ever. If I could ever hang with one rockstar ti would be him. Foo Fighters are my favorite band.

@captainsuperdawg: I LOVE that band. Hearing that song in the game made me start listening to them.
Seen them twice. Once right after their first album at a side stage. Amazing! Again this past May after their second album. Another amazing show.
Here's a video I took from the last show http://youtu.be/Qyfm_bLWkW0
