Right this is what i am into at the moment!

Sum41 - all the hard hitting songs
Bright Eyes - Lifted album, and wide awake.
Circa Survive - on leting go, havent heard their first album. Actually i don't like alot of it just the medicine poison dose song and the all your friends are gone.

So basically something that feels like the writer is in a big rut and wants to get out by becoming something amazing yet at the same time thinkin maybe he'll never get there. Something lonely, and lonely out of choice because he's ditched everyone 'cause he has no time for them but then he still feels lonely but better than before now he's away from it all...

I really need a band that just rocks. I'm looking for something in mostly major keys with fun, happy vocals and lots of power chords. I want one of those bands that you just blast in your car and it is EPIC.

any suggestions?

Not power chords, but Algernon Cadwallader is perfect for that.
#52
thanks guys. those were great.


and here's a thread I posted in the pit. but as I suspected, I got a bunch of songs that no one would know save a couple that were suggested. since most of what I'm looking for is in this genre, I think you guys would be able to help me a bit better.

yeah, a thread that's been done before a million times. However, the threads I've looked through when I searched just didn't have what I was looking for. :/

so I just need some quick suggestions and then I'm off!

I'm looking for songs that are well-known (singalongable) and have pretty easy chords.

some examples:

accidentally in love-counting crows
brown eyed girl-van morrison
dare you to move-switchfoot
wonderwall-oasis
good riddance-green day

kinda get what I'm going at?

and by well known I mean well known . I would play it for a group and everyone would be singing along. all help is very much appreciated.

Like alot of Pop-Punk bands?

Idk...All Time Low?
Can You Fill In The Blanks?
#54
^ but a lot of pop punk bands have good, fun songs but they just aren't as powerful as they could be. I'm yet to find the perfect "rockout" band.

Most of you are likely to have already heard of them, but if you want to submerge yourself into some deep stuff, Say Anything is the ticket. Between their unpredictable guitar/instrument changes and out-of-the-box yet grounded lyrics... it's hard not to get lost in it.

okay here are a few that i remember from living there for the past three years. im not saying these are the best, many of them i dont even personally like, but there IS a hell of a lot of pop-rock in and around the cardiff/valleys area.










those are all just the best known. the top three are the best three IMO.

EDIT: is what last.fm has to say. im clearly in a helpful moody today!

OLD a static lullaby is half-decent. sounds a bit like old FATA.

Not really a recommendation, but I figured this was the best place to ask since I haven't noticed the Jimmy Eat World thread for ages, should I buy Static Prevails? I've been meaning to for ages and now I finally have some money...

that's the best JEW album imo. go for it.
#63
What's some really chilled out, but catchy bands I could check out? I'd rather it not be acoustic, but maybe something like American Football.

If you're fine with acoustic, OWEN!!!

Yeah I already like Owen and but imo:

American Football > Owen

I just don't know pretty much anything at all that sounds like American Football and I love them. Why did they break up?
#66
Yo, I'm big on Powerspace, Forever The Sickest Kids, and Hellogoodbye at the moment, who's got some reccomendations (sp?) for moi?

If you're looking for somethin chilled out get some Mogwai

Some bands with some actual rock in their veins:

...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead

Hot Water Music

Far

New End Original

Glassjaw

The Get Up Kids

So called emo now is pure anaemic bull****!

</end rant>

Because virtually anything with the name "Kinsella" in it ends within a year and a half

But try;

The Appleseed Cast (download Mare Vitalis)
The Album Leaf
Braid
The Early November has some very AF-influenced songs... (Figure it out?)
Jimmy Eat World
The National League (it's some random dude's solo project, but it's exactly like AF)
Sunnyday Real Estate

Not all of them are EXACTLY like AF, but they're all damn good bands.

Srsly they're my favorite band. Although I DO switch quite a bit, but I haven't put Two Conversations down in like 3 months...

Hard-core influenced emo bands such as "Thursday" "Saosin" "Taking back sunday"?

anyone?

Personally I just like their styles
Recommend me any good post-hardcore band

Try:

Funeral For a Friend
Brand New
Thrice (older)
From First to Last

and maybe you could check out some screamo like:
Hot Cross
1905

Can anyone give me anything like The Early November, songs like "All We Ever Needed"?
