That Volbeat song sounds more like it's about drug addiction or whatever, but yeah, it's a cool track.
And yeah, definitely like the Foo Fighters. Mostly their early stuff (I'm old, you kids get offa my lawn!), but the last two have been great too, I really, really loved Wasting Light. Might even be their best songwriting, and I love how they recorded it totally analogue and oldschool, great having someone flying the flag for recording things right. Although a month or so ago I threw One By One in the stereo (CD players, whooo, again I'm an old geezer, haha) and had forgotten how underrated that one is. I know the band seems to hate it, but they were doing some really cool stuff experimenting a little there back in '02, a shame it didn't really seem to connect with people. It's the "darkest" Foo album too, by far.
As for the topic at hand, also honorable mention has to go to those great industrial/electronic-influenced rock groups of the era, bands like Garbage are ridiculously perfect 'Animorphs' music, mostly the earlier stuff.
