Can /mu/ give me some rock with really good riffs?
>must also have vocals
>nothing predating 1980
Love Dinosaur Jr, this is the right direction
Enjoy Kyuss a lot, though I much prefer Josh's vocals to Kyuss' main vocalist. Josh has a cool vibe to his voice while the Kyuss guy sounds like a 70's wannabe
Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats
>mfw the riffage in Freak Scene
J Mascis is fucking incredible
Also OP, have you listened to Ujubasajuba? You'd probably love that too.
I find this comment odd. Archers are my favourite band of the era, and Eric Bachmann is one of the best vocalists in indie rock. His vocals are one of the main reasons I enjoy Icky Mettle so much (AOT 90s for me). He has a very polished post-hardcore vocal tinge, some pop-punk delivery, but above all he's sardonic and at times demented. His voice makes the band.
Memes aside, have you tried to listen to Tool?
If you don't take it like "hurt is that supposed to be the god sent music the fans talk about?" it can be very enjoyable and has great riffage too.
