I agree with Ilona and Hailey...I really like the Killers because they have a cool sound!!!
I also like the group called Hellogoodbye I dont know if anyones ever heard of them but they are really good! The only thing is that their cd only has 6 songs so that makes me sad!! I also like Relient K. They are alternative rock except i was surprised to find out that they are actually a christian band too...i couldnt even notice! Usually I dont listen to christian bands because i think that they are just going to sing like...i dont no songs about church or god but they dont at all! not that thats bad...

oooh...i loooove recommend threads. I recommend you listen to Floord They are a local band in my town but you can go online and buy their cd. They are so awsome. One day they will make it big and it'll be sooo awsome. The lead singer is a teacher at my school and we hang out all the time.

I love recommending music (: So sorry if this is long.
Anyway, I listen to The Get Up Kids quite a bit. They do the whole "emo" thing without sounding as whiny as many bands in the genre do. Their live album, recorded in Lawrence Kansas isn't too bad, but it doesn't have some of their best songs on it. The best songs by them (in my opinion) are Campfire Kansas and Mass Pike --- though the most well known song is probably Holiday. They've broken up - but before they did, they put on one hell of a show.
I found the Feathermerchants on accident. I picked up the CD in a small local music shop, and I've been hooked ever since. The vocals are great, and the lyrics are the kind that kind of draw you in and tell you a story.
I also love 311 - I got into them when I was a lot younger, and they kind of stuck with me. They're this weird blend of marijuana-laced rock/rap, and I kinda like that they're different. Good songs to check out are Come Original and Down.
Someone already mentioned Nine Days, but their song Bitter Days, on the Madding Crowd album is one of my favorites as well.
Anna Nalick is an artist I heard on the radio really late one night, and I kind of fell for her song "Breathe", that's on the radio right now. I didn't expect the rest of her stuff to be so good. Then I bought Wreck of the Day and was pleasantly surprised. The album's emotional without sounding whiny or needy. My favorite song is Wreck of the Day. The line "I'd cheat destiny just to be near you.." is one of my favorites.
Last, but never least is Iron and Wine. My drama teacher/theater advisor who is pretty awesome introduced our cast to them, and we've all been kind of stuck. They, for no particular reason make me think of roller derby. They have a unique sound, which is something a lot of people miss in music today. My personal favorite is Promising Light.

I would definately reccommend Kenny Loggins In the Woods. That is one everyone must have. I have an eclectic personality for music. I also think Gerschwin is wonderful! I also love Barbera, ok,it me but it's true.

An amazing album that I bought on a whim and fell in love witn is A Grand don't come for free by The Streets. It tells the story of a young "bloke" who is having a really bad couple of weeks. I have never listened to an album that has a story running through all of the tracks on the album.

Favourite tracks on the album are Blinded by the lights, Dry your eyes and Empty cans. Hope you give it ago,also they released a track a few years ago that I discovered on launch called push things forward, really great. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Also one of my all time favourites are Crowded House. Temple of the low men or woodface are 2 of their albums which you would probably recognise a few tracks from.

I'd have to recomend Phil Collins. Most of his songs have a lot of meaning to them or, at least, his songs from 'Brother Bear' do...

This is a great thread. I have so many bands I'm going to look up now to get a taster, and a lot of the ones mentioned I already know and love. Especially Travis as I met them 2 years ago before one of their gigs in Glasgow. It was just before Neil broke his back.

Anyway, back to the point of this reply. I would definitely reccomend The Bluetones. They're my favourite band and keep surprising me with where the music can go. They have so many great ballad type songs, and up beat jumping songs it's easy to find one to suit whatever mood you find yourself in. Also, they're playing "up north" here in Scotland a few times this year which is even better, with another album on the way soon. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Here's one for you "Trance/pop" lovers out there that hasn't been suggested yet:
Belgium's DHT. The music is all remakes mixed and then sang by a girl named Edmee Daenen. She has an amazing voice, and all the songs are either Trance-y or piano ballad-y. *nods* Listen to them.... it's all really good.

Recommedation thread Whoot! /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> I recommend Simple Plan. They're just so awesome, especially their song, Untitled. Shut Up and Welcome To My Life are worth listening. And I give Green Day and Good Charlotte two thumbs up! Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani, and Aly and AJ Michalka's songs are cool too! I recommend you getting their recent CDs, they totally rock!

I think I've heard of them before, but I'm not sure I've heard their songs. Well the Philippines Sarah Geronimo's Can This Be Love is so awesome! Sheryn Regis is so cool too, belting out those high notes perfectly...I admire both of them!

Well, in case someone else hasn't reccommended them, Flogging Molly is an awesome Irish sort of rock band, it's kinda hard to describe, but definetly check them out. And then I have to reccommend another artist, Jem , she was a welsh electronica DJ, but now she sings and it's some good stuff. Yeah, go check them out!

Oh, and Hyde , a japanese rock singer, or his band, L'arc~en~ciel , awesome songs. /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" />

I highly recommend Muse, The Postal Service and Dispatch! Three great bands with three completely different sounds...they're all worth checking out though! Other good ones are Dashboard Confessional, Guster, and Hawthorne Heights....oh and Head Automatica too!

A band I recommend is Green Day because they are really cool. Their music is punk. They write their own songs. Most of the songs are about life and what goes wrong in life. I recommend them to people aged 13-whatever age as they have swearing in almost all of their songs.

Time to add a couple more to this list of artists to recommend:

Deep Dish is a DJ duo that do their own albums, but also mix songs for quite a few mainstream Pop artists. They're newest album, George Is On, is quite an impressive collections of their current work. Definitely a great Dance / Trance / Techno / Electronica /Get Up And Shake Your Groove Thang kind duo.

Mediaeval Baebes is another group I like quite a bit. Some of their stuff is way too mellow for me, but that's what you get from a group trying to recreate Renaissance music...with a modern twist. I'm really liking their latest album, Mirabalis though. A few mellow songs on there, but none that make you sleepy.
