Is My Morning Jacket the best "current" rock group today?

Since the other thread got hijacketed, I figured I would start this one so that we can really have a place for this discussion.

Just to be clear... By "current rock group" I mean, bands that are still on the rise, and didn't have initial, or peak success in the 90's. i.e. no phish, or dmb, or pearl jam, or radiohead ect.

So in essence, in today’s rock scene, is MMJ the best band out there?

Not to mention the fact that Pearl Jam and Radiohead are 15+ years old and still rock the shit out of MMJ.

Re: Is My Morning Jacket the best "current" rock group today?

No, for the sole reason that all of their fans on here constantly bicker and argue with everyone, trying to convince them that MMJ is god's gift to man.

"NO U R STUPID!! U DONT UNDERSTAND MUSIC!!!#$5ghE<@< HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE THEM??!!!"

ad nauseum

Give it a rest.

I wouldn't say best, because that's hard to really put a finger on. They are damn good though

I'll admit MGMT is the only questionable band on that list... but they are still way better than MMJ.
