Greatest pop-rock tunes (2010-2019)

Last edited: Jan. 3, 2020

With a few exceptions these songs don't have hundreds of millions of views on the most popular video sharing website. Only very few 'big names' have released a new record after 2010, such as Foo Fighters, Slash, Joe Satriani. We have got great new songs from new bands or artists with little popularity: Dead South (bluegrass), Tim Minchin (alt rock and musical comedy), Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (hard rock). And lot of great covers from 2Cellos (cello rock & classical music), Richard Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine (swing, musical comedy), Halestorm (hard rock).

Since not all YouTube videos can be embedded, embedded videos mixed with links of videos that cannot be played directly. These links will open the YouTube page of the video in a new tab or window.

If you are listening through loudspeakers or headphones and not through the speakers of your smartphone, then my advice is to set the correct playback level on your amplifier (or notebook), because YouTube always starts a new video at maximum volume... I hope Google will fix this issue one day... So if you don't want to wake up your neighbours at night, then turn down the volume on your amplifier and after starting a video increase the volume to the desired loudness.

Slash - Promise (Feat. Chris Cornell, 2010)

A melodic mid-tempo hard rock song featuring Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave).

Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton - Freedom (2012)

The song first appeared in the Tarantino movie 'Django Unchained'. Tarantino movie = great tunes.

Halestorm - Get Lucky (2013)

Hard rock version of the Daft Punk hit from 2013. Both are great.

Foo Fighters - Something From Nothing (2014)

This is not a typical hard rock song: different melodic parts follow each other in a fairly fast tempo. The tune starts softly and gradually becomes a true hard rock song with heavy riffs.

Dead South - In Hell I'll Be in Good Company (2014)

'Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.'

2Cellos - The Trooper (2014)

Iron Maiden and William Tell Overture (Finale) with acoustic and electric cellos.

Mumford & Sons - Believe (2015)

Richard Cheese - Sharp Dressed Man (2015)

Jazzy ZZ Top cover from the 'Supermassive Black Tux' album.

Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal - Little Brother Is Watching (2015)

Clearly underrated - even among hard rock fans.

Joe Satriani - Super Funky Badass (2018)

A bit of blues-rock and soft rock from Satriani.

Tim Minchin - 15 Minutes (2018)

Inspired by the famous quote.

Bonus: Despacito cover from Richard Cheese
