Muse, I know they have a pretty big following in the US, but I've only met a few people that have even heard of them. It just might be where I live though.

Sonata Arctica are the worst kind of metal you possibly could get IMO.

Then perhaps they're just not well known where I'm from. I live in the middle of a cultural wasteland, the people around here are litteraly mindless drones....our local pass time is drinking yourself stupid, and complaining about liberals....I don't know why I still live here.

I'm glad more people don't, they're like the 50 Cent of power metal. Just like there's better hip-hop/rap than 50 Cent, there's much better power metal too, power metal without SNES sounding guitars and horrible vocals.

H.I.M is pretty well known in america, and so are cradle. the 69 eyes are pretty obscure in america though
#33
why is it that almost every band thats been posted, I've heard of, and most of them i listen too, and most of them all my friends listen to? I live in the US, those bands really aren't that obscure. you could of course go into some of the black metal, falkenbach and naglfar? those guys are fairly obscure

thankfully almost none at all. although i've heard all of them play. Franz Ferdinand have a decent following though
#36
All I have heard of is Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, and Franz Ferdinand.
All I regularly listen to is Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand though.

i must say though, when people ask questions like this, most musicians have heard of the bands. i have heard of all the bands on this page, and heard most of them play music on CDs. but someone else (not a musician) probably wouldn' t have heard of most of these bands.

I'm a musician... I just classify 'heard of' as meaning I could name songs they play, and identify them. Of course I have heard there names before.
