Histrionic rock band Muse just released a trailer for the upcoming album, The 2nd Law. If the hammy Hans Zimmer-esque soundtrack and the melodramatic end-of-the-world news ticker is starting to seem predictable, just wait until it's about a minute and a half into the video. SPOILER: There's a drop.
If you're serious about "good" music, you would pass up the entire pop/rock era and go straight for the Baroque and Classical. Don't pretend that the long hair, sexual innuendo, tight pants, and rebel lifestyle is any less a marketing scheme in rock than it is for than cute boy bands. That said, just enjoy the music.
The music board on 4chan have their own formula for generating imaginary albums. These are only a fraction of what they've come up with recently. Each one is GUARANTEED to be too obscure for your friends to have heard of before! Feel free to take a stab at creating your own.
