Best Rock Band - 2012
HB Surround Sound
The rock genre has become such a broad term that most music fans don't use it much anymore, especially with all the subcategory genres. But in rock & roll's early days, it meant musicianship and a stronger emphasis on live performance when compared to other genres. HB Surround Sound embodies modern rock & roll with their dedication to live performances by wearing matching attire that illustrate their united musicianship. Although some songs tread into genres that might classify them as ska or reggae, the core is pure rock, with repeated snare-drum beats and lyrics that touch upon love and breaking down during certain moments in life—the same shit Elvis and Johnny were singing about back in their Sun Records days.
