MTV picks 2009's biggest "rock" albums

MTV is all over the 2009 previewing game-- today they've listed their picks for the biggest rock albums coming out in 2009. MTV's definition of "rock" is pretty sketchy-- they include Lily Allen (not rock, but pop), Paramore (not rock, but awful), Green Day, Tokio Hotel (not rock, but chick-rock), Dave Matthews Band (not rock, but bro-rock) The Fray (not rock, but lame) U2, and Animal Collective.


I can't be mad at the Animal Collective, Antony and the Johnsons, Black Lips, and Franz Ferdinand inclusions, but the criteria for inclusion seems to be that the albums that qualify as "rock" aren't going to be in the Top 40, and don't feature Neptunes production. There's a Sway-led video about the big rock albums of '09 above, and you can read the full list here.

Flight of the Conchords - Flight of the Conchords' new songs will be available online the day after they appear on TV Blitzen Trapper Blitzen Trapper to blitz North America this February
Animal Collective
Green Day
Tokio Hotel

People need to chill out. It's obvious the writer of this article doesn't like Pararmore, Tokio Hotel, Dave Mathews Band, or The Fray, and that's OK. But if he wants to go into every sub category of rock, that's pretty pathetic and lame. hahahahaha

sippin on a caprisun

hmm, chick rock? i happen to be a guy fan of tokio hotel, and yes i am straight, and i happen to think tokio hotel is the best band ever, so yea, to the loser who wrote this blog: keep your opinions to yourself!

tokio hotel is NOT chick rock!

Tokio Hotel isn't just for chicks, obviously, since I love them. I love that they are chicks.

Bill Kaulitz Babe!

WHAT THE HECK IS "CHICK ROCK"? You're being very insulting. I don't care if you're male or female, it is just rude to say those things. All of these bands are good in their own way. Everybody has different tastes in music so it's a good thing there are so many different types of music style around. How boring would it be if there is only one sound. There would be a large population in this world who won't have anything to listen to. So, just be nice. What goes around, comes around.


Is that a threat Music Fan? And as a clarification, I didn't mean "chick rock" in a way that indicates only chicks listen to Tokio Hotel. I mean "chick rock" in that Tokio Hotel are chicks, and they are hawt.

Will people PLEASE stop saying that Tokio Hotel are girls when they OBVIOUSLY AREN'T.
God, people can be so annoying.


You know what's annoying? People saying that Tokio Hotel are guys when they are obviously women. That is annoying.

this person can write whatever the hell he want BECAUSE it's a blog. Of course you f**kers are going to go against some of his criticism, because all you guys are die-hard fans. Also, I would appreciate if you guys could actually SPELL, because my eyes are boiling with pathetic-ness looking at people trying to spell "write".
Paramore and TH are not rock....that's the truth. Get over it.

These guys are naive

Tokio Hotel ain't talented, Paramore and Green Day are though! Keep listening to AMAZING rock!!!
