I just got into At the Drive in and I can't say how much theyve influenced me. Are there anyother bands close that sound like them, or have that kind of skateboarder persona?

try listening to Drive Like Jehu. they were around before ATDI. also listen to Bear vs. Shark. they are definatly ATDI influenced.

oh, and ATDI is in no way skateboard related

i'd say try fugazi or the fall apparently they were heavily influenced by both those bands during the ATDI days. also maybe refused, cap n jazz, desaparicidos, sunny day real estate they sometimes give me similar vibes

I would say Fugazi as previously mentioned. At the Drive-In were in a league of their own though. Part of me wants to say check out Minus the Bear, but they're not really very much like them. Sparta of course. De-Loused... era The Mars Volta is good too. Husker Du maybe. Mission of Burma...

Maybe Million Dead? I always thought there earlier stuff had a bit of an Atd-I feel.

Totally Desaparecidos - they're much more straightforward than ATDI but they've got the same energy.

Also check out Spy vs. Spy and Archers of Loaf. SvS are a bit more melodic than ATDI but with the same stop-start, random feel. AoL are more just 90s indie rock, but noisier and weirder than most and more people need to hear them goddamit

Fugazi is probably your best bet.

You might like Glassjaw if you don't mind a little nu-metal thrown in lolol
