Best Hard Rock/Metal Band (original)

1st Place: Drunk Drivers
2nd Place: The Jaggernauts
3rd Place: The Ronald Raygun


Because of the incredible indie rock, folk, and jazz contingents in the Valley, it can be easy to miss that there is a vibrant hard rock scene as well. According to poll voters, our favorite hard rockers are “angry dudes who love people and beer.” This is how the members of Drunk Drivers describe themselves on their Facebook page. We, the people of the Valley, have been drawn in by the Drivers’ pulsating sound, grinding vocals, and overall intensity, and we chose them as our favorite in this category. Second place went to the sassy and punk-rooted Jaggernauts, who recently released their second album. Coming in third were veterans The Ronald Raygun, who have been rocking the Valley for more than 10 years with their tech-infused, ethereal sound. –Ed Hudgins
