I'm talking about bands that rock, maybe had one hit and then basically disappeared. Not necessarily unsigned bands, but bands that you almost never hear on the radio. Here's my list:

Clutch
Jimmy's Chicken Shack
Anthrax
I Mother Earth
Local H
Mad Season
Sex Pistols
The Ramones
Social Distortion


Off the top of my head that's it, but I think it's a good list. Your entries please:

Are you kidding? Tool is MASSIVELY popular. I can't go to the mall without seeing 5 guys with their Tool shirts, and Perfectcircle gets a ton of airplay too.

Any group that has a platinum album is mainstream, and then some.

Bah, blame it on hot topic. I still meet people who have no idea who they are. But when I mention "schism" they are like OH, them.
Not really mainstream to me. Hell even the kiddies (13 and so that my brother brings along) some of them have no idea and get introduced to it.



I bet if you say Green Day/Linkin Park they will know who they are. Big difference. Then again most of this crap having to do with the music industry in general is subjective.


But I found it funny when MTV interviewed him...


Loder: Tool fans are pretty intense. Some of them already appear to think of you as a legendary character.

Keenan: That's kind of weird. How'd that happen? I don't even know how to process that statement. I can't be a legend yet. I'm not dead.

Damn guy, are we lost brothers? I have albums from every single artist you mention. Dramarama & Candy Skins, damn I thought I was only one alive who remembered them. Supergrass is great, too.

We gotta compare collections, I'd bet we could swap albums all day!
