Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Okay so here go a few of mine:

Falling Up
RedGiants
Building 429
Molly Jenson
Kutless
Day of Fire

Some of them are sort of well known and some of the I can guarantee only a very small percent of the population have ever heard of.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

i would like to consider Belle & Sebastian as well as TV on the Radio are relatively unknown, pretty popular in the indie music scene that i am familar with, but underground nonetheless.

As if, they're huge!

Some others people mentioned like The Almost, Bring Me The Horizon, Audioslave are all pretty well known I'd say. Audioslave have been around for ages, and most Underoath fans would know The Almost.

One band I like thta most people havent heard of are Deathstars. They're goth/industrail metal from Sweden. I've only found 2 other people in Australia who have heard of them

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Try the Commercialized Music thread. It's basically the same thing, and it's been around for a while.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

MxPx, Merge Left, Against All Authority and Bad Religion are some of my punk and pop-punk bands.
Daphne Loves Derby is a really good sort of alternative leaning towards emo group.
And Get Set Go is indie-powerpop with really twisted perverted lyrics. They're amazing but don't listen to them unless you throw away all sense of PC

Mudvayne is one of my fav bands!!! i saw them in concert w/ Korn and 10 years... AMAZING!!!!!! they also sing the song from the movie Ghost Ship... its called "Not Falling and is a really great song... their original stuff like "Dig" is my fav though lol

audioslave is pretty well known... i think that "like a stone" and "i am the highway" did it for them... i personally am not a big fan because i think its a terrible mesh... cornell can sing better then that and morello is a WAY better guitar player then that... but i heard Rage is back together so YAY!!!

and as far as seether goes... i think that their a bit more popular then audioslave... that song that he did w/ that evenesence chick helped them... but gasoline will always be my fav of theirs.

Lifehouse isn't exactly small (I'm in America) but I absolutely love them!

Another band I really really love but can hardly ever find anyone who knows them is Matchbox Twenty .The only people who I know who know them are my mom and sister (both big fans) and I've made all my friends listen to some of their stuff.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

About Lifehouse, I agree that they're pretty big here in America. They use their stuff on TV shows and commercials and everything-- I love them! My favorites of theirs are 'You and Me' (probably they're first big hit and yah I'm lame but it's so sweet!) and Hanging by a Moment.

Okay this isn't a unknown band, in fact it's quite the opposite, but I think this is a pretty unknown song by them. It's 'Time of Your Life' by Greenday-- I hate Greenday by the way, so judge the song by the fact that they sing it. I couldn't believe it was by them because it's so meaningful which is really not something you find to often in bands like Greenday. Has anyone heard of it? I don't think it ever got popular probably because of the fact that there's no stupid lyrics or screaming in it and that it actually has a point.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

They used the song 'You and Me' on a Smallville episode, the one where they had the Highschool Prom I think. I was like 'Ahhh! It's Lifehouse!'. I made a Harry/Ginny video to that song because it's so pretty.
