Echo and the Bunnymen. Not that they're around any more, but even when they were, they weren't well known.

Really!? I wasn't aware. It's just I've never met anyone else who's ever even heard of them except my mom and uncle.

i know some people know about the bands i mentioned but definitely not a lot of people. i forgot to mention paramore too but they're probably gonna get bigger now since i saw them on mtv all night last night everytime the shows went to a commercial.
and you and your brother aren't the only ones who know of some of those bands, i used to listen to suicidal tendencies, butthole surfers, and silverchair (a actually had a little crush on the singer)

"well known" is pretty relative I guess as long as your not U2 or Frank Sinatra, but according to how many hits come up on google here's a few that I love that aren't very popular.

eastmountainsouth - kind of folksy with great harmony, I think they only have 1 CD out
Todd Smith - I think he's categorized as Christian. Writes some amazing songs, but really needs to change his name :lol: if he wants to be well known
Ruthie Henshaw - played Fantine on Broadway in Les Mis, and has done a bit here and there. Absolutely amazing voice, I wish she'd do more. (along with people like Linda Eder and Anthony Warlow, those Broadway people just aren't appreciated :lol:)
Decyfer Down - Rock, what can I say, I really like them.
Then just quite a few random Indie Rock and "Baroque Pop" type people like the Decemberists and Rufus Wainwright, but I guess they're pretty well known now. Though not nearly as popular as they should be IMO :D

nice idea for a thread :rockon:

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known
 
lol yeah... most of the people that i know are into rap... or counrty... i like country too... but my roots are in rock music...

have you heard that new silvershair song? its called like "straight lines" or something

its soooo weird and soooo not like the Tomorrow, Isreal's Son, and Pure Massacre that i come to know and loooooove so much


oh and another "band" that i really like that not to many people know is Corey Smith... hes acoustic... i looooove him... he has really good lyrics... usually telling a story... "In Love With A Memory" "Twenty One" "First Dance" and "if i could do it again" are some of the better ones that i can think of right now....

I think Suicidal Tendencies and Sepultura both enjoyed a hayday when I was in high school (I guess I just dated myself).
Anyway, Butthole Surfers...I can't even think of them without thinking about their soundbite on CB4 (It's not appropriate to post here, of course). To this day, it can make me laugh.

I've definitely heard of Silverchair even though I don't know any of their songs.

Some of my faves are:
*Megaherz (German Metal)

*Fuel (Rock, slightly more known)

*Fort Minor (Lead Rapper from Linkin Park's solo attempt. It actually came out pretty good.)

*Richard Cheese (Popular songs turned into lounge music [Frank Sinatra style music], he does covers of songs by metal artists like Disturbed, Nirvana, and a few rappers as well. He's actually the person who does that famous dogs barking Jinglebells song that they often play on the radio around Christmas.)

*Jon and Al Kaplan (Parody Musicals, like: "SILENCE! The Muscial!" [Silence of the Lambs spoof musical])

*Mudvayne (They actually do a song on the SAW 2 soundtrack. The song that plays when the credits start to roll, it's called "Forget to Remember")

*Audioslave (VERY good band, even though you've probably heard of them. They're not that commonly known however).

*Seether (Another one you might have heard of, same popularity level as Audioslave however, probably a little less.)

Hmm.. Silversun Pickups, Linda Martini (portuguese band, really good.), Cold War Kids, and Zero 7 (lots of people know it, but i think is just to great to be left aside.)

Wintersun-melodic black metal band from Finland

Zox and "Stephan Couture and the Campfire Orchestra". Both local bands, but very good in my opinion.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known
 
What does well know exactly mean? Deserve more success? aren't in the top 40 charts? Only play gigs on the toilet circuit? Not featured in the bigger music magazines, like the NME, or Rolling Stone? Known in certain countries, but not so much in others? It can mean different things to different people. Personally alot of the bands mentioned here, i'd say were quite well known.

Anyway here's my little list:

Neutral Milk Hotel: For a band in my eyes that made the best record of the 90's, they should of been much bigger than they were. In the UK they are hardly known. Then again they were hardly going to get a look in, in the sea of rubbish that was 'Brit Rock'. http://www.last.fm/music/Neutral+Mil...e+Over+the+Sea
