    Haven't really been keeping up with albums this year, but Van Halen's A Different Kind of Truth is insanely good. Easily their best album since 81.

    My top 10:

    1) Linkin Park - Living Things
    2) Billy Talent - TBA (really looking forward to this one!!)
    3) Lostprophets - Weapons
    4) The Killers - TBA
    5) Triggerfinger - All This Dancin' Around (actually from 2011 but it's still so damn awesome :D)
    6) Papa Roach - TBA
    7) Limp Bizkit - TBA
    8) Green Day - Trilogy
    9) Of Monsters And Men - My Head Is An Animal
    10) The Offspring - Days go by (also released on June 26th so that's gonna be a great day :D)

    You probably won't recognize the band Triggerfinger. It's a Belgian rock band with a great international sound. They're also very famous for their covers. For example listen to this Lykke Li cover and you will understand why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzWQV5OiQQQ
    Best single of their album is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2b5o6psuzs

    If you have the time, please listen to them and tell me what do you think about these songs. Cause I'm very curious about how people that don't live in Belgium think of this band. :p
