Hi all,

this will be my very first thread, and I decided to create one away from all the partisanship that I usually follow and engage in from time to time.

So here goes. Below I hope to introduce you to some great South African bands that you probably didn't know existed.

I also encourage you to do the same and hopefully I get to experience some great music from your neck of the woods.


















The bands posted above are by no means one hit wonders, so if you hear something you like, chances are you can add some songs to your play lists.

Enjoy!

Here's a band that not many people know about, but I really enjoy them.
I like that they don't stick to one style. Very versatile, yet you can still tell it's them.

Germany:

Rammstein (rock)
The Scorpions (rock)*
Die Toten Hosen(rock)
Die Aerzte(rock/punk)
Cloud7 (GOA/progressive trance)
Revolverheld (mixed)
Sportfreunde Stiller (Indierock)
Juli (pop/mixed)
JBO (fun cover rock)
Fanta4 (German HipHop)

and then some that are not bands but single DJs that would blow this list up too much.

Also but I dislike
Silbermond (pop)
Böhse Onkelz (rock)
Tokio Motel (commercial garbage)
Modern Talking (pop)*
Spider Murphy Gang (fun)
Scooter (techno)

From Japan. Not my neck of the woods, but one of my favorite hard rock bands this century. Don't let the costumes fool you, these girls are serious musicians. Serious enough that Jimmy Page is a fan and goes to their concerts.

You're from South Africa, and Die Antwoord isn't on your list?

Surely a mistake, yes?

I like them a lot. My wife turned me on to them when we were still dating. Seen them twice and both shows were pretty amazing.
I don't usually listen to any type of rock music, mostly R&B and pre-2010's rap, but theres something about them I really like.
Unique, yet familiar style, poetic lyrics, ect.
Check em' out, I'm sure they appreciate any support they get.

I've been on a kick of newer bands that bring back some of the old styles... Incorporating elements of folk, blues, and other forms in a new twist.

Take me back to the 80s!

No. Please don't but I saw the League live in Oldham UK at a club called Oddies.

Can't post video from phone but I'll plug a friends band Eastfield.

Sharks v surfers is a good start.

Punk meets train spotters.
