Gotthard is at the forefront of a melodic rock revolution that has brought the classic 80's AOR sound into the 21st Century, refining it along the way so it doesn't sound dated. Gotthard, along with bands like Fair Warning, Harem Scarem, and Bonfire) understand that people don't necessarily want a brooding, melancholy, introspective artist every time they tune into an alleged rock station on the radio. They understand that a lot of us (to quote the mighty Dee Snider) just want to rock, and miss the kind of good time rock & roll we grew up with. And these bands have all been around since at least the early 90's, but mainstream radio decided that we were no longer interested in that sort of thing and instead gave us Silverchair and Marcy Playground.
Gotthard's 2001 album Homerun is probably the band's most accessible album, and is the ideal starting point for new listeners. You've basically got an album here with (once you get past the brief instrumental opener) 11 well-written melodic rock songs that in a perfect world would have all been massive radio hits. It takes all of one listen for you to be singing along, nodding your head, and drumming on the steering wheel (sometimes all three at once).Read more ›
