Depends what you like.

I'd recommend the following to anyone with a set of ears and an open mind

Adequate Seven --- sadly now defunct. mixed punk and funk to produce politically and socially charged, melodic music. often aggressive but often groovy and dance-inducing.

65daysofstatic --- post-rock band that combine guitars with electronic beeping and glitch drumming to make something pretty unique.

the Bronx --- punk rock and roll, combines the swagger and riffs of rock and southern rock and turns up the distortion and attitude, retaining melody.

Thrice --- post hardcore but more progressive than most of their contemporaries, can range from aggressive tracks like Paper Tigers to lighter stuff like Atlantic.

None of those are really obscure but i'm just throwing some out there.

Genesis is fine to me, I just felt like laughing at something.
Phil Collins FTW!

That's so true. I love the music and only read along with the lyrics for a laugh.

"I Cum Blood." Great lyrics indeed.

Indeed. Truely poetic.
