Rosie Carr LOVES World On Fire- Her favorite Slash release

Rockers! Man, 10 years flies by! It’s hard to believe these 10 killer rock albums are turning 10 in 2024. But they are!

Now, let me start by saying, there were a lot of really solid releases that came out in 2014, and I left a few of my faves off the list to get to 10, (I never say BEST- there is no BEST, just my opinion of favorites, yours may be different). These lists serve as a reminder of two things.
1. How much amazing music there is to listen to. AND
2. How fast time flies by!

I’ll be rocking a few from this list all week on the WDHA Coffee Break at 10:50a, – make sure you tune in!

I also tried to keep this “10 rock Releases celebrating 10th Anniversary” list diverse with lots of guitars, female rockers included, metal artists, and the classic bands that have shaped our past. I interviewed a lot of these artists too during the album cycles for these records 10 years ago, (Judas Priest, Sixx AM, Chevelle, Zakk Wylde) and it’s awesome to see that just about all are still active. It’s also incredible that so many of these bands have or are getting ready to release new tunes and new albums this year- (Seether, Slash, The Pretty Reckless, Judas Priest)

  • The Pretty Reckless - Going To Hell

    Released on 3/12-2014- “Going To Hell” is the second record from “The Pretty Reckless”, and really cemented Taylor and the band as one of rock radio’s future stars. We got THREE number one Billboard singles from this powerhouse release including- “Heaven Knows”, “Follow Me Down” and “Messed Up World”, and it was recorded in Hoboken New Jersey!

  • Foo Fighters- Sonic Highways

    I LOVE “Sonic Highways” from the Foo’s. LOVE. It’s such and underrated masterpiece. And I was obsessed with the HBO Documentary, seriously, I watched it at least 50 times.  It’s the bands eighth record and Dave traveled to eight cities to record eight songs and get a feel, flavor and ties to each cities musical history. My favorite song of the release features the magic of Joe Walsh. “Outside” is a masterpiece.

  • Black Label Society- Catacombs Of The Black Vatican


    Released in April of 2014, it’s the 9th from BLS and there is something about Zakk’s vocals on this one that really hit me.

    “My Dying Time”, “Angel Of Mercy”, “Heart Of Darkness” , It mixes everything we love about BLS. Heavy, Groove, with a Bluesy, real feel, that elevates Zakk and the band to a new level. I love this record so much.

  • Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators- World On Fire

    The second album with the mighty Myles and the Conspirators, with songs like “World On Fire”, “Bent To Fly” and the amazing “Beneath The Savage Sun” inspired by the plight of the slaughter of Elephants and a partnership with IFAW (International Fund For Animal Welfare) , Slash stopped by WDHA to promote this album and the title track gave the band a Billboard number one rock track.

  • Godsmack- 1000 Horsepower

    This is one of my favorite “Godsmack” records, because they really came into their own as a no holds barred, straight ahead rock band on this one, their 6th.  While still heavy, they really stretched their boundaries on songs out of their traditional sound  like “Something Different”, and “Living In The Gray”.

  • Seether- Isolate and Medicate

    Released in July of 2014, Seether continued their path of writing songs  that are custom, made for rock radio on their 6th record- “Isolate and Medicate”.  With “Words As weapons”, “Same Damn Life”, and “Save Today”, Seether adds to their catalog of active rockclassics on this one and I can’t wait to see them at WDHA’s Rock The Rock Fest 2024- April 25th at The Prudential Center.

  • AC/DC- Rock Or Bust

    No matter, when, where or how……whenever we get a new AC/DC record, life is good! No explanation needed.

  • Sixx AM- Modern Vintage

    I HOPE “Sixx AM” comes back in some form- I think James Michael is one of the most underrated people in rock music. Songwriting, Producing, Vocals and band fronting.  And of course Nikki and DJ Asba- The third Sixx AM record to me was the bands  best without a book to promote, and focusing on a sound that highlighted their musical heroes- A homage to classic rockers like ELO and Queen. I loved the songwriting and whole vibe of the record. And The Cars cover is beautiful.

  • Chevelle- La Gargola

    Chevelle is sooooooo underrated. Criminally underrated if you ask me. La Gargola is the bands seventh studio album and is one of the best bangers of 2014.  Don’t know them? Download their catalog and see them live.

  • Judas Priest - Redeemer of Souls

    Released in July of 2014, I was lucky enough to host some national radio and DVD specials for the band when this record came out. One we were not sure we would get! It was the first without K.K. Downing and introduced Richie Faulkner to the Priest fans.  I am a self proclaimed “Priest Maniac” and this record knocked my head off and there was no way I was leaving it off of my list.
