Simple question, what do you guys think is the most original band that you've heard (most original sound or style)


I'd say 'HORSE the band' is the weirdest combination of stuff, an indie band including screamo/metal with keyboards that sound like videogames

their genre is 'nintendocore'

What about your refrigerator itself? It's gotta come in with its badass hum solo sometime.

Ever heard of Hurra Torpedo? You're not too original. On topic, Mogwai.

Genesis (Peter Gabriel era) i have yet to see a band in the early seventies in which the lead singer dresses up as a fox in a dress and played amazing music. after 1975, they just sucked

Quote by BluesHombre
I second The Mars Volta and Radiohead.


I cant believe it...i never thought this could happen! I was seconded! I have no idea what to say..um, im totally unprepared...um (slowly pulls glasses and paper out of shirt pocket) I want to thank first and for most, Satan, who without there would be no God...and second i would like thank God, for bestowing this talent on me...and then theres my baby's momma, i love you mary and i wanna thank BluesHombre for the support he gave me through all of this. I love you all!

um, another original band is From First to Last, becuase they incorporate alot of different styles that Ive never heard blended before.

A lot of avant-garde stuff is pretty original. Konono No. 1 (mbira/African music) and Huun-Huur-Tu (vocal music) are also very original.

Placebo has a pretty original sound as far as I know, I haven't found another band who really sounds like them.

The Mars Volta. They are the most diverse and amazing band I have ever heard.
