Based on his/her preferences, most of these recommendations are terrible...ah, wait a second...I get it.

Be warned cdo478. Most aren't taking your request seriously.

But I will.

You seem to lean classic rock. You should give this a spin.

If you like Longwave, I highly recommend Ride, Slowdive, and My Bloody Valentine.

I figured I'd mock his laziness. I'm all about new non-regulars coming in here to discuss non-U2 music (it's always a breath of fresh air when they do so in a way that isn't by coming in and making a " hey check out this band, they sound like U2!" Thread. Those bands are either terrible, sound nothing or too much like U2, or--usually--both). But there's something inherently lazy about saying ok, I like these bands. Now tell me what I should check out. How about you read some threads, click a couple of those ubiquitous YouTube posts, and start there? There's plenty of guitar-based music, often video links are prefaced with overly verbose descriptions that despite their pretentiousness actually describe the songs pretty thoroughly. But you would have to actually READ to do that, and that sounds like it may take too much effort.

The old me would have laughed and asked if those are all the bands you've ever heard, then told you that you had pretty boring (the playlist of your standard classic rock station) bordering on shit taste (collective soul? Haha!) and left.
