The Darkness

The Darkness are an English rock band touting themselves as classic hard rock. Their highly retro style of music seems to be influenced by 1970s rock bands like Queen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, T. Rex, and Led Zeppelin, and 1980s rock bands such as Van Halen and Def Leppard. However, they are possibly the closest band to come to Queen's style since Freddie Mercury passed away, although this could be disputed by Queen fans. Lead singer Justin Hawkins' falsetto makes them immediately distinguishable from other present-day rock bands. (From Wikipedia)
