Anyone NOT using Auto-Tune these days?

If there is ONE aspect of today's recording process that I detest, it would be the use of Autotune!!! My strong opinion is that if you are recording a song and you happen to sing something out of key, then re-sing it, accurately....without the assistance of a software program that can artificially-manipulate any note(s) to "proper pitch".
To rely on Auto-Tune...is to be a FAKE!!!! Sing it right, or get off the mic! Play it right, or let someone else play it, who CAN get it right!
It seems as if 90% (or more) of today's recording artists (especially vocalists) are devoted to using auto-tune. In many cases, it has even become an "art form".
My main purpose in this thread is to ask.....do any of you know of any particular albums....that have been recording within the past 3 years....that did NOT use Autoune, at ALL?????
The only band that I know of is The Foo Fighters. Their latest album titled "Wasting Light" was pure band performance without the use of any software-based pitch-correction. I am curious to know if anyone in this forum can provide any other examples of ANY Rock album (from the last 3 years) that did NOT utilize so much as a second of "Auto-Tune".
