Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

First up is definitely Mogwai!
And after that ...

TV on the Radio
Mastodon
Explosions in the Sky
Sigur Ros
and maybe even the Beatsteaks, but they're pretty well known here in Germany

And of course some local bands hehe ^^
Buddha's Chocolate Company
Elysium
Lamaze

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Anberlin, but they just got signed to a major label so they'll be well known in no time. No band deserves it more than them!

VAIRON, they're signed to Nettwerk Records but haven't been getting a huge push for sales for their EP, "Indigo Skylines"

Search the City, they sound a lot like Anberlin. These guys will be huge. They just signed to Tooth & Nail (Anberlin's previous label)


Mew, Explosions in the Sky

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

i used to really like matchbox 20 in the late 90s, i still remember when their song "push" and "3am" came out and i fell in love with it. are they still working as a band? i know rob thomas was doing his solo thing and everything.

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.
wow, that song was huge during my 8th grade year, and it was played at every graduation party i went to since it was so fitting. i used to love it too

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Flogging Molly.

They're a little more well-known now, having appeared on MTV like during St. Patrick's Day, but they're still pretty underground here.

Irish punk ftw! Saw them last week in concert for the 3rd time, and they will NEVER cease to rock!

Ooh that song is one of my top favs. That and What's Left of the Flalg. That Warped was when I first saw them.. I've yet to meet them though I do plan to though. My sis has a knack of meeting famous people (Deftones, Haste the Day, etc.)

Hehe, yeah, it's hard to concentrate when you have to listen to lyrics ^^
Do you know Mogwai? They're also kind of like that, a lot of instrumental stuff

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

I've heard of some of the bands posted here. Anyone heard of Within Temptation? They're a gothic band. I think my friend said they're Sweedish? Also there's Lacuna Coil, an Italian gothic band. But I think they're a little more popular now because I saw one of their videos on MTV.com.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

I don't know if they've been mentioned, but Opeth aren't particularly widespread unless you delve into death metal (0_0) but at the same time they're so accessible! Honestly, as long as you can brave 10+ minute songs, they're practically magic in a bag. They can easily be cited as one of the most unique (verging on being artistic lol) bands today.

Other bands who I think it is an injustice that they're not well known to their genres would be Nevermore, possibly Mastodon (they are pretty well known...) and Apocalyptica: cellos ftwun

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Ah... Yes, Flogging Molly are excellent... I really enjoy "What's left of the flag", live version.
Black 47 are actually quite good too, although somewhat different.
"Funky Cil (Bridie's Song)" is an excellent choice, as is "New York Town".

Ooh, yay. Someone else does know them! Yeah, I didn't realise they were playing until like a week before and so it was like .. can't get tickets ... or a ride... They have really gorgeous music though.
