The best bands that nobody heard of/listens to

Post by Pennyroyal Tea »

Don't you hate that disgusting feeling? When I say bands, I mean solo artist as well. Here is a place where we can compile a list of the bands we find like at a concert or whatever way, that nobody has probably heard before.

If they have a music video that's been played on TV, or a single on the radio then they wouldn't really be considered for this.

Unless it's like a band like Senses Fail who didn't really catch on.


But here's my short list for now.

Punchline
Bright Eyes
City and Colour
Tegan and Sara
Boys Night Out
P.O.S.
Tsunami Bomb
An Horse
Ryan Meeking and the Few
The Early November
Meg and Dia
Walls of Jericho*
Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer
Patent Pending
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

X-ray spex, but then again people have heard it, they just died out way back in the 70s.


THAT COUNTS, RIGHT?


oh and casket architects, but then they got popular.
OH AND mad conductor


then they got really popular with pill heads and gorefunks. :(

Just recently I found out there are rock fans on here who have never heard of Death Cab For Cutie. Very shocking/upsetting. Almost every rock fans in my high school and Southern California knows of them. THIS BAND IS SO POPULAR!! Oh well. =]
