You have excellant taste in music. I completely forgot about Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys, which is amazing since I also love Irish punk.

Streetlight Manifesto are another good band I forgot. Ska music in general is a lot of fun. I got to see Big D and the Kids Table at the Warped Tour a few weeks ago, and they had probably one of the best performances of the day. They need to have more bands like that. They're starting to move away from their punk roots and now have more mainstream pop-rock bands, which is disappointing.

I have to say that I have never listened to them, but my best friend just recorded with Dropkick Murphys and is going to be on their next album. I think that is pretty amazing. He is being credited for it by name too. So awesome.

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.
Are you kidding me? You think that song is unknown?! Quite the opposite! I've heard that song countless times on the radio and a million other places. I don't listen to Green Day much any more (I used to love them), but I'm going to defend them for a bit. Now it's not really my place to judge your critique of music (God only knows I bite the heads off of anyone who does that to me), but I don't think you quite get the point. Well, the point is that Green Day lyrics (besides 'American Idiot,' but I don't really count that) have no point. At all. They're not supposed to. And that's why I like them.

Okay, generally the bands I like aren't incredibly well known, but still vaguely popular.

-Ben Kweller (actually not many have heard of him, but a few of my friends have)
-Regina Spektor (okay, if you haven't heard of her by now, you're living under a rock)
-Snow Patrol
-Oasis
-Norah Jones (not that a lot of people don't know her, but a lot don't like her)
-Wizard Rock (only my closest buds know this)

Absolutely amazing. Flogging Molly, Streetlight, and Big D are my three top-listed bands. Last week I was at Warped and saw FM and Big D, but was unable to mosh much due to the heat. The index was registered at 110 F outside of the pits.

Another few I can name off (I stretch across many genres) are Five Iron Frenzy (broke up ) and Say Anything.

Yeah I know of Mogwai being from Scotland, I like them. They are part of the Reindeer Section too, some really great songs from that super group.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Flogging Molly are hilarious. I saw them supporting Story of the Year in 2006 and whilst I cant call myself a fan they sure were very entertaining.

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.
I love Lacuna Coil! They're great. THey're not very well known here in Australia I dont think.

Right now I'm very jealous of your friend. I wish I could record with any of my favorite artists, but unfortunately I don't actually play any of those instuments (or sing). I just play clarinet.

It was hot at our Warped Tour too, but not that hot. Luckily, it's always held right next to the lake, so we get a nice, cool, slightly fishy breeze. You just can't feel it while you're in the pits.

I'm also jealous of you because Flogging Molly didn't come to Milwaukee (or Chicago), so I didn't get to see them.

Oh right.. I forgot Indianapolis was their first show this year. We had 0 wind, but tons of guys standing around throwing ice and stuff. There was also a giant blow-up slippin' slide! I was still too hot to be able to get close and really enjoy FM though.. I was already blacking out and all that.

Ah, also, I forgot about Goldfinger. They broke up a little while back as well, but they're known for redoing Nena's 99 Red Balloons in English with their own lyrics. Nena herself liked it and sang their lyrics, too.

99 Red Balloons was my favorite song for a while, until I got into the Irish Punk thing (best genre ever)

And this was the other one I was going to mention. I can't stop playing Semiotic Love. It's such a great song to dance to.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

^ Hey, there we go, Opeth I knew there'd be some somewhere. I'd estimate all those tracks would come up to nearly 2 hours; I used to listen to them a lot when I'd play a certain MMORPG that I've pledged I'll never play again...

I recognise Communic from your list, who I've listened to a bit. They sound great but I don't really enjoy them as much as I do Opeth.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Opeth kick ***. But they are pretty mainstream in the underground, if you know what I mean. Most people know them.

Communic is amazing as well, but a style that is so reminiscent of Nevermore (More Progressive, perhaps) that you may get bored of them after a bit.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

I listen to a lot of metal bands who are not very known here, like Mägo de Oz, Elvenking, In Extremo, Edguy, Avantasia etc.

An also a lot of quebeker bands, Polémil Bazar, Mes Aïeux, Pierre Lapointe, Ariane Moffatt, Maharajah, etc.

I love music that sounds different. I'm listening Flogging Molly right now, thank you for that. ^^

My sister is into the Mad Caddies if you want to check them out. They're one of the most unique bands I've ever heard. They have songs that sound like circus songs, and pirate songs, and all kinds of stuff.

Blaqk Audio is amazing. AFI is my favorite band ever (I'm in the DF and all that), yet nothing like anything else I listen to, whereas BA is. So naturally, I adore it.

Davey tries to imitate the deep male vocals that are usually in dark electronic music, but his voice gets high by the chorus anyway. It makes me giggle, and I love it.

Anyway, here are a few (a FEW?!) bands I listen to, and I've met some people who don't know of them:
VNV Nation
Assemblage 23
Imperative Reaction
Apoptygma Berzerk
Covenant
The Birthday Massacre
Dope Stars Inc.
And One
The Cruxshadows
Emilie Autumn
Infected Mushroom
Ladytron
Freezepop
Combichrist
Wumpscut
Celldweller
Voltaire
Rammstein
Refused
Mindless Self Indulgence
Neuroticfish
Panzer AG
BlutEngel

A lot of that's electronic-y, I know.

I also really enjoy the 80's Goth music, like Siouxsie and the Banshees and Sisters of Mercy, which a lot of people don't listen to.

JoJ and scarling. are two of my favorite bands, ever...

I have almost nine days of music on my computer, so I could go on a while. And most of my music's slightly obscure. I like AFI, Madonna, Depeche Mode, Marilyn Manson, NIN, The Cure...those are the only ones I can think of at the moment that get played on the radio or MTV.

Eek.
