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:



Alice in Chains
Bjork
Blink 182
Coldplay
The Cure
Frou Frou
Kraftwerk
Modest Mouse
Muse
The Pillows
Pink Floyd (lots of Floyd on there)
The Pixies
Portishead
Radiohead (lots of RH on there)
Rammstein
Smashing Pumpkins
Tool
Warren Zevon
Weezer



So, given this eclectic list, can someone
suggest some stuff that I might dig?

edit: the more obscure the better

Bump!

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.

Hey, that is a pretty good album. Don't
knock it just cause she is some Brit
chick.

I'm counting on that fact to save me
from getting goofed on.

I heard some of their stuff on the

me. I'll try it again. Thanks.

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.
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 2:40:45 PM EDT
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.

Bury Your Dead
Full Blown Chaos

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
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 6:16:20 PM EDT
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.
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 6:33:59 PM EDT
Goldfrapp

The Dears

Kasabian

Ladytron

­The Stills

Snow Patrol

The Redwalls
