    Can anyone name me bands that i most-likely never heard of, but
    a) are good and
    b) popular enough that they would have a decently good wikipedia page(lol)

    i'm at a phase right now where i'll only listen to two bands(artic monkeys and streetlight manifesto) and i want to dl something i've never heard of

    1)Dream Theater. dubbed the most popular band you've never heard of. Amazing Musicians. all 5 members virtuosos at what they do.
    2)Liquid Tension Experiment. Instrumental group. 3/4ths Dream Theater. it was a side project.
    3) Opeth. Once you get past the growling parts, the singer is actually REALLY good. fantastic musicians.


    I could go on and on, but i'll stop. i need to go to bed anyway. PM me if you want more.

    Dream Theater (as mentioned above), Would help if you mentioned bands you already knew about.

    And last i checked, torrent talk isn't allowed on here.

    Some of these may be more known than I think, if so, sorry. Recommendations:

    Lovehatehero - I suppose some would consider them emo? Their appearance is emo, but I still like their music.

    Hard-Fi - Poppish

    In Flames - Metal/Heavy Rock

    Rise Against - Rock

    Say Anything - "Alternative" (they switch between a ton of different styles)

    Tokyo Police Club - Alternative

    Unearth
    Arch Enemy
    Dragonforce
    Symphony X
    Bullet For My Valentine
    Trixter
    Warlock
    ZONE
    The Pillows
    All That Remains
    Allele
    Soilwork
    HORSE The Band
    Violent Work Of Art
    Kix
    Tyketto
    Accept (go for the song "Balls To The Wall")
    Twisted Sister (really popular)
    Faith No More
    Pantera (about as famous/popular as Megadeth)
    Anthrax (^ Same as above)
    King's X
    David Lee Roth (when he left Van Halen)
    Ronnie James Dio (about as legendary as Lee Roth, if not more)

    Eh, there are a few rad bands on that list
    I think most of them are terrible tho, imo.
    Seeing Dio live with black sabbath was rad as hell.
    oh, and I highly recommend you listen to more Death, highly influential band, seeing as they were the first death metal band. : D
