I saw the Cancer Bats, but I'm not sure how "famous" they are really.

EDIT: But my dad saw G N' R, Van Halen, RHCP, AND Soundgarden before they got big. How the hell he managed that, I have no idea. Lucky bastard.

Avenged Sevenfold, believe it or not.
I also started watching metalocalypse and buying their albums as soon as the show aired and the albums were released, if that counts.

I saw them at Warped Tour in 2002.

I saw five finger death punch just as they released their first album? Does that count? :P I think it was before they started getting big in the magazines and stuff.

When it always feels like autumn

And the flowers die

Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the cake this morning!

RHCP for my family, not for me though.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

Dragonforce I got into them around 2003.

and I heard of the Jonas Brothers back in like 2006 but never liked their stuff so I ignored them and believe it or not I saw a Jonas Brothers tour bus at a local mall in my town a few years ago before they got as big as they did.

You should have burned that tour bus with them in it well you had the chance., and spared us all from their wrath.

I saw Radiohead in about '93 I think. In Toronto. Nobody had heard of them. I used to work in a club called RPM, they played and I remember being really impressed with the singer. Saw them again at Glastonbury '97, a few days after they released OK Computer.

I saw Tenth Avenue North at least half a dozen times in concert before they got signed and started getting big. They're only really known to people who listen to CCM though.

I live in the same town Anthony Green grew up/currently lives in. The Circa Survive guys actually hang out at the same places my friends and I do. From what I've seen, Green is quite full of himself.
