Blogsterspalooza: TOKIO HOTEL: Rocks

Tokio Hotel is one of the hottest European bands to grace our earholes. With great songs emulating a mash up of Nirvana and other similar bands, Tokio Hotel captures their own unique style that will either give you goosebumps or get you so amped up that you want to start your own garage band next to the dumbbells.

I really hope this great band catches on here in the states. I think they will since they recently won the Best New Artist at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. They started their first tour in North America in August 2008 and are sure to win American fans over. Listen to the songs on the playlist. I guarantee you'll love every single track in some way.

Wikipidea: Tokio Hotel [ˈtoːkio hoˈtɛl] is a German band founded in Magdeburg, Germany in 2001 by singer Bill Kaulitz, guitarist Tom Kaulitz, drummer Gustav Schäfer, and bassist Georg Listing. The quartet has scored four number one singles and has released two number one albums in their native Germany, selling nearly 5 million CDs and DVDs there.[6] After recording an unreleased demo-CD under the name "Devilish" and having their contract with Sony BMG terminated, the band released their first German-language album, Schrei, as Tokio Hotel on Island Records in 2005. Schrei sold more than half a million copies worldwide [7] and spawned four top five singles in both Germany and Austria.

I love this - I can feel a bit of Nirvanaesque in their sound, but I really like the girl front there!

I love finding new stuff to listen to and get the creative juices flowing! Thanks for sharing it, it always amazes me the different music that you can truly run across when networking.

LOL....I'm not sure you realize the "girl" is actually a "guy" I had to investigate myself. I'm glad you like them. I love music that is good and not too many people have them on their ipods. I plan on finding bands/artists that are in that niche to expose them like they deserve. Thanks Susie
