First we got Baltimore singer/songwriter/producer Blaqstarr with a rocking song featuring Talib Kweli. This rocking song is off Blaqstarr’s latest project titled, The Mixtape (cover art above), which features appearances also from Lil Wayne, Mos Def, Diplo and Steve Aoki to name a few.

Next we got an upbeat party rock song from Baby Baby called “Fire!” This is one of those rock songs that if you heard it at a party, it would bring the same energy but different dancing as say some party hip-hop track or a party track from another genre.
Baby Baby – Fire!
Now for a song that brings out that blues/soul feel that mainstream rock is lacking these days, except for The Black Keys. The Stone Foxes are a must-watch rock band.
The Stone Foxes – Mr. Hangman
Nunchucks is a cool band name. “Clean me out” is a cool rocking song. Enjoy!
Nunchucks – Clean me out
Lastly one of those rock/pop songs that sounds like a a pleasant journey with the piano instrumentals as the base for an awesome build-up and a well-suited title in this Ian Axel song. A little more pop than rock but very catchy. This song would blow up on the radio stations if Glee did a cover of it.
