Could anyone be so kind as to reccomend me some music I might not have heard of.
Two bands that they should sound like: (if they only sound like one, that's fine too, because I have no idea how to combine these two.)

Red Hot Chili Peppers
&
The Pixies

I would greatly appreciate your help, I've been stuck in a music rut.

Thank you in advance!

Lol @ LazySandman

I've checked out Pandora, but right now, it's not working for me?!?
It's a great site though, so I come to UG in my time of need.

Edit: I like Sublime, I was hoping for bands I haven't heard of so much.

To be honest, I find it more enjoyable not only finding music that sounds similar to my favourite bands but also finding out whom their inspirations were. Try it... you'll find so much more rather than simply picking out similar artists.

For the Peppers, try any of these groups out:

Funkadelic.
Parliament.
Grandmaster Flash.
Kool& The Gang...

Then keep going and keep going, find out whom their contemporaries and influences were. Ahh, such do I love music!


You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine


When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

Yeah, I've listened to Cannibal Corpse before, I agree with your opinion...

And I friggin love the strokes!

Edit: Yeah, I've done the whole influence thing before, that's how I got to The Pixies.
And thank you for those RHCP influences, I didnt think of them

I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Thanks again

If I ever see you in real life, I'm buying you a beer. Even though I'm underage.

in the Pixies vein of things i'd go with:

Modest Mouse
The Thermals
The 90's
Frank Black (dur)
Flaming Lips (cause they kick ass)
Tokyo Police Club
Helio Sequence (for mellower moments)

that's all i can think of right now.
