What are some very special bands? I mean bands that are unique.

Mine would be "Orphaned Land". Oriental metal. They are unique. They combine occidental metal with oriental instruments and music. One of my favorite bands. They spent 7 years working on their last album (Mabool), which is a concept album about the great rain. You know, the Noah ark's story...
Post youtubes!

I always thought soundgardens Grunge was pretty unique. It didnt really follow any kind of patterns. Plus Cornell's voice made it even better. But the off beats and the unexpected turns always had me surprised.

I agree with Coheed and cambria and tool.
Coheeds new album isnt very unique/special though.

"Never Wanted To Dance" will even be on the new Madden game.

MSI is awesome. I saw them live and they were just as good as on the record.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

Well, you might make her think otherwise.

You could just show her that you have a PS3 and BANG.

A chainsaw can take a girl off her feet pretty nicely. Then there are less limbs to worry about while you rape her.
