In my quest to find new music to listen to, I realized that I knew of a lot of really good bands that a lot of people had never heard of, and the reverse was just as true.

So, I think we need a thread to spread good music through out the world.

Give the bands name and a discription of their style and sound.

Pepper - Pepper is a really good band that sounds a lot like Sublime. It's basically "reggae rock", with lyrics about sex, drugs, and living in Cali.

Coheed and Cambria - Kind of a metal/hardcore/emo mix. The lead singer has a really unique, high pitched voice. They have kind of a gimick going with their lyrics... They all go with a comic book series that they write.

Those are my two bands to start off with, though I will add more later.

Please post some for me to check out. I lisen to just about everything.

Hoobastank

This was a band I used to consider that was not very popular. With the release of their 2nd cd that grew very popular and frankly it was probably their worst music.

Their self titled first album was amazing.

Crawling in the Dark




I will dedicate
And sacrifice my everything for just a second's worth
Of how my story's ending
And I wish I could know if the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make won't end up all for nothing
Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer
Is there something more than what i've been handed?
I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer
Help me carry on



I seen this band in concert as they opened for I Mother Earth many years ago. They were just a local band with no real publicity. They put on a better show then I mother Earth and rocked the place.

With the only cash in my pocket I went out and bought their cd.

Arlibido is the name of the band.

Kind of a mellow punk sound for their time, not as grungy as most punk now but this was in the late 90's so punk then is not punk now.

Trying to think of a band to compare them too... remind me of a Killers, Fall out Boy style of music today.

I was very skeptical of "techno" before i heard this artist. Very mellow, but great deep tracks that i can listen to over and over again.

DJ Shadow

Its alot of old lines and such re mixed and re built so they are unrecognizeable as an old song, ie he makes it his own. Def check him out and see what you think.

My band has had very limited exposure but our brand of Delta Blues and Southern Rock will make the most uptight, shy, emotionally constipated person rip off their clothes and dance like a maniac possessed.

"Catfish Steven and the Caucasians"

Our show should be rated XXX; best leave the kiddies at home and as always; no firearms!!



edit: because I wanted too

A band that I personally though kicked major butt, but never really went anywhere...

I saw them open for System of a Down in 2003....

Pulse Ultra.

They're a Montreal band and are really awesome.

Holy Hell - almost stole the show as an opening act for Rhapsody and Manowar
Beseech - only time an Abba cover has ever sounded good
Subway to Sally - most unique metal/techno blend i've ever heard
The Aquabats - flaked out to the Nth degree but good
Freezepop - just too damn catch for their own good
In Extremo - most amasing german folk metal band I have ever heard...they can really rock the bagpipes like nobody else!
Porno Graffitti - did the original intro song for the anime Great Teacher Onizuka
Inkubus Sukkubus - just listen, its the only thing to be said for them

and finally for those who may not have heard them check out Blind Guardian and their most amazing rock-opera Nightfall in Middle Earth which basicaly encompases the book The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien. If you don't check out any other band on this post at least listen to Blind Guaridan, well worth it for the progressive metal fans.

I know Coheed & Cambria, the Aquabats, Hoobastank, all VERY good bands. Porno Graffitti did one of the OP's or ED's for Fullmetal Alchemist aswell.
Depeche Mode and NIN are some great ones.

Some that I would reccommend:
Sense Fail
Ellipsis
Silverstein
The Real McKenzies
Dropkick Murphys
Wilco
Boxcar Racer(not sure how small they still are, but they're great)
Lostprophets
Over It
Rooney
Rufio
Snow Patrol
Sugarcult

Those are all some really great bands, I highly reccommend them to anyone in search of new music.

I like your style.

The only ones you have listed I haven't heard before are:

Ellipsis
Wilco
Rufio
Snow Patrol

Any chance you can give me a little info on these bands sounds/style? It sounds like our tastes are alike... I need more MP3 material!

(on another note, is it kind of wierd that an Ivy league soon to be grad student listens to the Drop Kick Murphys?
)

Be Bop A Lula

Thanks for the list.


However, could you please pick a few (5 or so) of those bands and give a little discription of them? I would really apreciate it.

Ohhhh... And to make sure I am sharing....

Thrice - Started out as a punk/hardcore band, but with their latest record have found a bit more subtlety to their sound. Their old stuf is fairly hard and agressive, but their recent stuff has had a bit more musical thought put into it. THeir lyrics are somewhat religious, though being an agnostic, I still don't care.

DPW (Disgruntled Postal Workers) - This is a band that was really popular around my local music scene about 8 years ago. They started out with a mostly punk style, but moved to a pure hardcore sound. I have seen their stuff on limewire and other such P2P networks. Very good stuff if you like hard music. It should be warned though, their lyrics are overtly christian.
