Well of course. What girl wouldn't be bowled over by these lyrics?

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood!

Check out Black Stone Cherry's latest album, it leans more in that direction, with hints of southern rock Theory of a Deadman would also be very similar to the likes of Shinedown.

I'm not sure which modern bands count as soft rock.
I would have immediately thought:

REO Speedwagon
Chicago
Styx
Heart
Sutherland Bros and Quiver
Fleetwood Mac
Eric Carmen

Would Coldplay, The Script, Snow Patrol and Keane not be considered soft rock?

More on the Indie side of things, aren't they?

Incubus and Stonesour are cool. Also, Hollywood Undead (More rap fused with rock).

If you like Skillet, then you might like Hinder."The Best Is Yet To Come" is my favourite song by them.

Have a look at the genre map someone posted yesterday, maybe look at the Funk Rock or Nu-Metal genres here:

http://www.furia.com/misc/genremaps/...-funkrock.html

http://www.furia.com/misc/genremaps/...p-numetal.html

Might discover something there (you can click on most artists to here a sample).

the Foo Fighters.
Genesis
System of a Down
Staind
Terrorvision
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Green day

Perhaps not all could be termed as real soft rock - but then I wouldn;t have said Linkin Park are obviously soft-rock material either.
