I need to finish filling up my iPod. I have a
bunch of stuff that I already like on there,
but I was hoping that I could get some
suggestions as to some other groups.
Here are the artists currently on the iPod:
So, given this eclectic list, can someone
suggest some stuff that I might dig?
edit: the more obscure the better
You're admitting to being a Frou Frou fan here? Damn you're going to get gigged for that one.
Then again, most everyone here lives with their head in the sand, so they probably don't even know who Frou Frou is.
black label society
Floater ("The Sad Ballad of Danny Boy" is exceptionally good)
Hey, that is a pretty good album. Don't
knock it just cause she is some Brit
I'm counting on that fact to save me
from getting goofed on.
I heard some of their stuff on the
Garden State OST, but it didn't grab
me. I'll try it again. Thanks.
Added to my
You want obscure?
Fiona Apple (not really obscure, but wtf did she dissapear to?)
it wouldn't be ARFCOM without Alizee
on the hard side...
German 1970s electronica band, they influenced a lot of performers and, I think, are still around.
I remember listening to them in the late 70s and early 80s. Not since though. Look for their album called Autobahn.
Not knocking, just razzing.
Well seeing as you delivered on the boobies I'll give you a couple of suggestions for some real music: First and foremost you need some Clash, then throw in some Dropkick Murphys, Rancid, Flogging Molly and the Pogues.
A +100000000 on Black Label Society. New album is fucking awesome definitely my favorite one.
If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd type southern rock/country try Shooter Jennings. He is Waylon Jennings son and I'm really liking his debut album. Put the O back in country.
Monster Magnet (Especially the old stuff, frickin amazing)
High on Fire
Clutch (These guys cannot make a bad album)
Queens of the Stone Age
Son of Sam
The Dead Milkmen
Opeth (Seriously some of the best music I have ever heard)
At the Drive in
The Mars Volta
Manowar (Awesome cheese Metal, probably the best cheese Metal in the world)
Death from above 1979
Kings of Leon
Team Sleep (Chino Moreno from the deftones side project)
The Murder City Devils (This band is awesome, it sucks they broke up recently)
Trail of the Dead
Hot Water Music
The White Stripes
These a just a few bands that I really like, I could go on and on but Ill stop here.
Short and simple.
Blue Man Group
Loius Armstrong - A kiss to build a dream on
Daft Punk (no its not punk or anything like that)
Checkout radioiorock.com we share simular tastes in music and this is where I hear the new artists that I want to pick up.
Here are a few suggestions.
Placebo- Once more with feeling
Shivaree- Who's got trouble?
Snow Patrol- Final Straw
The Postal Service- Give Up
The Killers- Hot Fuss
Hot Hot Heat- Elevator
Doves- Lost Sides
Block Party- Silent Alarm
Judging by your current selection, at least the stuff that doesn't suck.
Coheed and Cambria
Fall Out Boy
Queens of the Stone Age
A Perfect Circle
If you really like Rammstein, Alice in Chains and Tool but want some heavier stuff, or what I like to call, more motivational. Might I also suggest the following.
Dry Kill Logic
Lamb Of God
The Acacia Strain
Between the Buried and Me
Bury Your Dead
Full Blown Chaos
Thanks for all the ideas, guys!
Now I regret getting an iPod Mini because
I am running out of space.
I don't see any Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Shame on you.
I concur. There are countless that I could add but you wouldn't want any of it. Like Jackel. I like they're "Redneck Punk" "Down on Me" and "Dirty Little Mind". One could say that they're a little obscure and not very clean. Then of course there's the song that has a chainsaw as the lead instrument, "The Lumberjack".
Autobahn is best listened to in a seriously altered state. LOL ! I still have that on vinyl.
You also need some Tokyo Ghetto Pussy and maybe the soundtrack from Office Space
Warren Zevon is definately a good choice. But asking people what music you should listen to is like asking them which food and beverage is the best. We all have our preferences.
Add APC, and Tool, if they haven't been listed.
based on what you have, you might like the following:
(trip-hop akin to portishead)
mandalay (both are very highly recommended)
cafe del mar (especially aria 2)
(darker and more melancholy)
black tape for a blue girl
emiliana torrini/dead can dance
lust murder box
(just check them out)
fury in the slaughterhouse (not a metal band)
(mainstream stuff you really have to have)
garbage and garbage 2.0
the crow soundtrack
the cleopatra label has released tribute albums to floyd and the cure. worth checking out.
I don't see:
The Flaming Lips
Death Cab For Cutie
on that list!!
other various eclectic moods
Dead Can Dance
