    Bring Me To Life by Evanescence. This song was the groundbreaking hit for the band when it was released from their debut album Fallen in April 2003. Listeners were introduced to the incredible operatic vocals of singer Amy Lee. The blending of Lee’s vocals with the Goth Metal, Rap/Rock is an odd pair that this band works to perfection. The response for this blend was overwhelming skyrocketing the then new band to the No.5 spot on The Billboard Hot 100.

    Evenflow by Pearl Jam. This Pearl Jam classic is from the band’s 1991 debut album Ten and was released as a single in 1992.

And Pearl Jam had their unique song style that told stories in through verses, not […]
