Foo Fighters5. Foo Fighters, In Your Honor
Is this their last effort?

One of the best rock bands took it to a whole new level with this double CD. The rock disc is by far the best that the Foos have done with everything so much bigger than before. The acoustic disc was an ambitious effort and showcased the softer side of the band. While the acoustic disc knocked this down a notch, there are few bands that would even attempt such a feat.

Best Songs: "In Your Honor," "The Last Song," "DOA"

Coldplay4. Coldplay , X & Y
Apple's daddy gets better

Already one of the biggest bands in the world, Coldplay certainly has their act together. X & Y shows the band getting better and better and the hooks getting bigger and bigger. There are few that do it better, and by few we mean 1 or 2.

Best Songs: "Fix You," "Talk," "Speed of Sound"

Bloc Party3. Bloc Party, Silent Alarm
London Art-punk goes mainstream

Like a bat out of hell, the Bloc Party just continued to grow bigger and bigger. Their danceable rock had people going crazy at the sold-out Avalon in Boston. Great songs, big hooks are a big mix and show Bloc Party to be a big talent that will be here for years to come.

Best Songs: "Like Eating Glass," "Helicopter," "This Modern Love"

The White Stripes2. The White Stripes, Get Behind Me Satan
Jack and Meg's best

Critically acclaimed and commercial successful, the White Stripes can do it all. They have stripped it down once again and Jack's time on Cold Mountain has definitly influenced his songwriting. Here the Stripes show they are a band for the ages.

Best Songs: "Blue Orchid," "My Doorbell"
