The Good the Bad and the Queen
Porcupine Tree
The Mars Volta
The Clash
Modest Mouse
Muse
Radiohead
Coheed and Cambria
Brand New

The Shins
Bright Eyes
Elliott Smith
Kevin Devine
Pavement
The Postal Service

To appeal to the mellow rock side of you.

And

At the Drive In

Just because they kick so much ass.

Edit: And I'd hardly say you have bad taste, anybody who likes Brand New likes the right kind of music.

No, its just that a lot of people have arrogant views on music (especially on UG), maybe its because of pride, or maybe ignorance, probably both

The Fall of Troy is an awful band. The music they make is trying so hard to be different and weird but it sounds like complete shit.


Some bands that I like, some have been mentioned, but I agree:


-Explosions in the Sky is very good.
-dredg
-Anathallo
-The Arcade Fire
-State Radio
-Thom Yorke's solo shit.
-John Butler Trio
-Kayo Dot

I would agree that it is quite a good list (even though I don't like some of the bands) but any list that size is hardly all one could need musically.

Thanks a lot guys, I have to say, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE PORTUGAL THE MAN, oh man it's so great, and yeah I already listen to some of the bands posted, (RATM, RHCP, QOTSA, etc)

But I have one thing to say about Fall of Troy, I do like them, but I think that they have overproduced their music on some songs, (FCPREMIX) it just lost all of it's edge and the whole feeling, but when they aren't overproduced I can enjoy their music, keep it coming

and I've been meaning to check out Phish for a long time now,
