The two that leap to mind are:

Shady Bard - Some lovely music that makes you smile no matter whatever mood you were in previously.
Shady Bard Myspace to listen to their tunes

Paisley Riot - Our very own ATS member Paul plays in the band, and they've got some real good tunes

One band I really think metal fans NEED to listen to are, Meshuggah. They take metal to a whole new world, never mind a new level. They have more time signatures up their sleeves than... a person with a lot of time signatures.


Their drummer is also one of the best I've ever heard. He can play in 4/4 with his snare while playng something crazy like 28/32 with his bassdrum. He's a machine!

So yeah, Meshuggah are a must listen! For song recommendations, U2U me.

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?
)

I know maybe 50% of all the bands listed in the other posts and that shows me that maybe I've been listening to the right radio station, and apparently the fact that I live in Portugal does not mean that we do not have access to good music.

Alpha Grey....

You list motorhead as a band that is not commonly known.

Maybe it is just me, or what but they are a pretty big and well known band.

They have performed on many large stages

Ace of Spades is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Is this another band you speak of?

Edit: Alpha Grey not Gray.

I put that out there because believe it or not...some people have NO idea who Motorhead is......

In hindsight....I probally should not have included them.

I'm definitely into punk right now, and even screamo. So here is a list I really hope you should try to listen to if you havn't heard them before, it'll change your life.

Anti-flag: Pretty much what their name insists. They are 100% against Bush and it shows in their lyrics. They point out very well the hypocracy of this nations history(America). I'm not sure, but I think they stand for Anarchy.

Atreyu: Now if you like Rock/Screamo then you would love Atreyu. With great lyrics and singers. They really have a great guitarist and drummer. This is moshing music for sure, yet it still has the quality of just chilling out and just taking it all in. There is not too loud when it comes to this band.

Authority Zero: Great punk group. They arn't anti-government as they anti-war and anti-police. The singer always has amazing lyrics that are catchy and his voice is great for their sound. He can sing quite quickly at times.

Social Distortions: A very old Punk band that is still making new stuff. I'm starting to like the idea that they were the very first punk band in history. They have been around since the 70's. They didn't get popular until about the mid 80's or early 90's. The singer had part of his ear bitten off in a fight once, so you gotta know he's somewhat of a badass.

Tsunami Bomb: This punk band has a girl singer... and it appeals to me. I don't usually like bands with girl singers, but I like how this band works. I havn't heard their latest album, it's been harder to find than I thought it would be.

So, if you havn't ever heard of these bands before I definitely recommend them to anybody. If you don't like them at first just give them a shot.

And I'd say that about 70% of the bands listed on here are at least somewhat known. Seriously, hoobastank unknown?!?

With that I'll unleash my list in sections of styles (must listens in bold):

"Indie Rock"
*These Arms Are Snakes --> spazzy indie rock. members of isis and a few other bands
*Minus the Bear --> melodic rock, former guitarist of Botch and members of sharks keep moving(seriously listen to this)
*Sharks Keep Moving --> melodic indie rock
*Q and Not U --> politically charged dance party!
*Kill Sadie --> just listen
*Faraquet --> math rock

"Hardcore/Metal"
*Botch --> mathcore, best thing since sliced bread (RIP)
*ISIS --> gloom/drudge metal...sick
*Horse the Band --> spazzy Nintendo-core. seriously 8-bit + metal.
*Fall of Troy --> fast guitars, kinda screamo voice
*Pelican --> gloom metal - instrumental
*Mastadon --> recently signed: maybe you will know them soon
*Mike Patton --> see Fantomas, Dillenger Escape Plan, Mr.Bungle, Faith No More

"Electronic"
*DNTEL --> pre-postal service
*Japanther --> sample based indie
*Ratatat --> guitar based electro
*The Books --> as heard on [adult swim]
*Boards of Canada --> damn good IDM

"hip hop"
*Prefuse 73 --> electronic
*Del tha Funkee Homosapien (any project) --> aka: Deltron 3030, Hieroglyphics, Gorillaz, etc
*Quasimoto --> thin/small voice, phat beats

"other"
Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum --> Halloween comes to life

and these are just the favorites...

Ever since I played Tony Hawk on PS2 and heard that song I always laugh when I hear "Ace of Spades"...
I don't know why.

Not particularly unheard of but as I'm having a bit of a reto day today some oldies and particular songs:
    Bauhaus - Bella Lugosi's Dead, Third Uncle
    Bolshoi - Lyndi's Party, Looking for a Life to Lose
    Sisters of Mercy - 1959, Lucretia
    New Model Army - Notice me, The Hunt

    (and a little plug for The Clash - This is England)
Right, I'm off to get my slippers, a pipe an' a nice cup of coco for bed.

I can't believe I forgot to mention The Sisters of Mercy! They're a great band. Other songs I recommend by them are, Temple of Love, Dominion/Mother Russia and This Corrosion.
