I am a modern rock fan, so my rock preferences are different from many of you in this discussion. However, I have my own beefs with the EDGE. They include:
1. the playlist (why won't they play more hard rock bands, like My Chemical Romance, Drowning Pool, Rise Against and the Prom Kings?),
2. the DJs (too much mindless talk, not enough rock),
3. too many commercials (the morning show barely plays any music these days).
If your a fan of modern rock, listen to Y101, a new rock station in Richmond, Virginia. They play 51 minutes of new rock every hour (including on the morning show). Their not afraid to play hard rock bands like My Chemical Romance, Drowning Pool, Rise Against & The Prom Kings. They debut new songs, like System of a Down - BYOB, well before the EDGE plays them.
Try them out. You'll hear great new rock bands you never knew existed, and songs from your favorite bands that the EDGE worries will scare their 10 year old listeners ( i.e. System of a Down - Cigaro).
It will open your eyes. Thank me later!
