Like the garage bands of the 1960s, today's garage rock revival groups make raw, energetic music that places more emphasis on vibe and emotion than virtuosity and slick production. While the Strokes and the Vines look like they walked off the streets of Greenwich Village in 1969, many of these bands draw influence from everything from '50s pop to country music. From the surf-inspired pop of the Boss Martians to the fuzztone raveups of the Hives to the crude slide guitar blues of the White Stripes, today's garage rock revival bands are injecting new energy and imagination into an otherwise stagnant rock scene.
