xmas_rocks was a Secret Santa exchange for rock music RPS.

This exchange is for rock music bands and artists, both new and classic. Basically, if it's an artist you'd hear classified in general as Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Alternative Rock, Hard Rock, Indie Rock, Punk Rock or Heavy Metal, then your suggestion will probably be accepted. Pop/dance/Top 40 artists will not make the cut.

In other words, The Beatles? Yes. Backstreet Boys? No.
