They can be any genre or style. Ill start:

The Mild Revolution(country/folk rock)

Mazza(Dubstep/Electronic)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OyXpe1o7F0

They apparently focus on polishing turds and they're made of the fucking awesomes.

Feeder
They had some success in 90s and 00s but that's about it. It's a shame they aren't that more popular because a lot of people will miss out on their newest album and it's one of their best albums.

First link was amazing. I'll stick this down as my contribution

Every single 90's British Shoegazing band ever....Seriously.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoegazing

It pains me everyday that no one knows about these bands, even in the genre's home country.

My Bloody Valentine, Chapterhouse, Ride, Catherine Wheel, Pale Saints, Adorable, The Boo Radleys, Slowdive, Blind Mr Jones, Sun Dial, Swervedriver, Lush, Curve, Kitchens of Distinction...all Great stuff!

Well...at least I'm unique with my taste in music, but I wish I didn't get odd stares when I explain to people that I like Shoegaze music.

Speaking of Britpop, Mansun needs more love. They are so much better than Oasis, and Blur.

I personally think too few people have heard of Clutch. I wonder if they try to deliberately avoid mainstream success, cause they seem to be more of a club band than a stadium one. I recommend them to any fan of blues or classic rock. Here are four songs from four different albums of theirs- what I really like is that they're always changing their sound. Also, THOSE BEARDS!

Poets of the Fall. They're the only band I can listen to constantly and not get bored of. Unfortunately, I can't link any of their songs since Youtube is blocked on my home network, but hey, you should go look them up yourself anyway, because your ears will love you forever.

I've written this on here before, here it is again:

I don't care much for the song but I WANT that bass.

On topic I loved the New Jersey trio, Shades Apart, and I think they never got the recognition they really deserved, despite their awesome cover of Tainted Love (which the following song is not)

Brad were very good. Totally not grunge. More like Faith No More, mixed with the smoother elements of Living Color.

Siobhan Donaghy - Made two great (+ critically acclaimed) indie pop albums since leaving the original Sugarbabes line-up (of which she was by far the most talented it would appear ...)


... and yet at one point had so few sales that she gave up music altogether. Meanwhile Rihanna could made a track of her farts and sell 3 million copies. Seriously, fuck this world sometimes.

Fair To Midland

Granted they have picked up a bit more success since Arrows and Anchors, but this band deserves to rule the world as far as my opinion is concerned.

Full Scale

Shame what happened to them. Normally I'm not the biggest fan of this kind of rock music, but there is just so much passion and conviction in Ezekiel Ox's voice it just grabs me and doesnt let go.

Scrabbel might be so underground that they don't exist anymore, but I think they're fantastic and wish they hit the big-time:

Starsailor. At least in my area anyway. Nobody's heard of them around here and everyone I show them to instantly likes them

There's always Maximum the Hormone too but I feel like I've posted enough videos from them on here already lol

That Handomes Devil... had tracks on a couple of RB and GH games... but that's it... they're not even on a label yet they've released like 3 albums...<.<

They're pretty awesome... somewhere between Nick Cave, The Ventures and Warren G spliced with a bit of an ironic satirical middle america attitude...<.<

And of course Elephant Bones is their most famous track...

The World/Inferno Friendship Society. Big Band Cabaret Circus Punk.


I rather like Carbon Leaf. They got some radio play here in the states with "Life Less Ordinary". They're more lighter rock and some what closer to folk than I think a lot of people like but I think they deserve more fans for songs like this:

Most definitely one of the most underrated bands out today.... GPN Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

The Kinks. Fuck The Beatles. The Beatles are nothing. The Kinks should have been fucking massive. Instead they had a few top ten singles and faded into obscurity, becoming a cult band.

hell yes dude. as a kid, one of the reasons i landed in anti-establishment (without sounding like a tool...), anti-capitalism, anti-consumerism, pretty much anti-everything america has turned into, was because i LOVED the song Ape Man by the Kinks, i listened to that CD all the time. in my teens, i tried opening some of my fellow punk-rockers up to the song, but unfortunately, the message never sunk in. But the message, pure punk rock, though the music is clearly not.

'Dedicated Follower Of Fashion' is my fav song of theirs. It's so acidic without coming across as hostile or with an undercurrent of jealousy. I really wonder if the Carnaby St, self-absorbed, twats actually twigged at the fun being poked at them through that song.

The Dear Hunter
I wasn't that big of a fan the first time I heard them, but they really grew on me. Their project "The Color Spectrum" is really cool too.

Surprised a band like Renaissance fly's so low under the radar, they had the big epic songs and little pop songs as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF4ff2KrDWY - Mother Russia

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTI1oP762rw - Ashes Are Burning

A chance for me to plug Momus ? Hooray!


InMe should have been huge, especially in the UK, years ago.

The Hold Steady.

Yeah, they're not the most marketable guys. But boy, they are awesome...

Susumu Fucking Hirasawa- The man doesn't so much compose music as he does craft absolute perfection and he's practically unheard of in most of the circles that I'm in. Granted, he's a Japanese composer but that's no excuse!

I mean honestly, how can a man who composed something as beautiful as this NOT be a well known name outside of a few select circles?

I want to love feeder again. They keep saying things like we're getting back to our roots, but instead of releasing metal/grunge like their first album, they release shitty indie pop albums(although I havn't heard much of the new album), except for Renegades, that was a great album.
Although that said, some of their "shitty indie pop" as I called it is very fucking good.
But the one thing that annoys me the most is the fact that they only release their best style songs as b-sides. Like this one:

Two words my friend, FUCK YES! Basically the band I would have put here myself. Not my favourite band in the stoner rock genre but definelty the one most people would like.

Separation Sunday and Boys and Girls in America are 2 of the finest hard rock albums of the 00s.

Ninja Magic, Best Metal band ever!

Could only find one of their songs on youtube so..

Yeah man, great band. Personally I'd count them more as blues rock, although they have changed their sound quite a bit over the years. Stoner rock for me is stuff like Kyuss and Sleep.
