There's this Irish punk rock band called U2 that I thought never got the credit or attention it deserved...

I'm sure someone already posted it, but I'll add Interpol to my list. Their album "Turn On The Bright Lights" is a must have for anyone that likes Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths, and any other 80's influenced acts. Plus they have, what I consider to be, the best song title of the year: "Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down." Now that Im thinkiiiiiiiing, here's some more bands:

Interpol
ON
The Twilight Singers
Brendan Benson
Nikka Costa
The Push Stars
Blonde Redhead
And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
At The Drive In/Mars Volta

I LOVE the Smiths and I like the Cure and Joy Division, but I don't like Interpol. His voice just doesn't do it for me. Ah well....

Anyway, Mars Volta, Brendan Benson and The Push Stars are all awesome.

Well, at least you gave `em a listen.


His voice IS kinda nasally, but I think when you're in the right mood it's cool. AND dead sexy. LOL.

George Michael gets so little respect for his singing, songwriting and playing. "Listen Without Prejudice" is breatlessly amazing, as are tracks on his other albums, but he's mainly known for scandal or being cheesy '80s.

Anybody mentioned the Urban Dance Squad yet? No? Then I'll do it.

The Squad were a great rock band, one of the first to make a truly innovative and combusting blend of rap and rock. They came to the scene together with Living Colour (another underrated band) at the end of the Eighties and while they inspired the good (RATM) and not-so-good (Limp Bizkit ) they never got the credit and success they deserved. Sadly they broke up in 2000.

Oh yertle, I don't think Kylie is that underrated. I mean, even Dave Grohl likes her. Kylie's cool!

Did they sing "Deeper Shade of Soul????"


And for the record, Dave Grohl DOESN'T like Kylie. He likes her ASS.

And it's strange cause I love 2 unique voices (Morrissey and Michael Stipe) that many people can't stand. I may give Interpol another try, I only listened to parts of three songs.

And Headsonsticks and anyone else with good music taste (paxetaurora) - If you haven't given the Pernice Brothers a try yet. You must! I don't know if you like the Jayhawks or Wilco, but it has a similar core sound only with other hard to describe great qualities. Some songs almost evoke a touch of the Smiths. They are great.

Yeah, definitely Rufus Wainwright. Sooooooo underloved. He's like a flamier Elton John. I liked his first (self-titled) album best.

Of course, his song on the Big Daddy soundtrack, "Instant Pleasure," is one of my all-time favorites:

I don't want somebody to love me
just give me sex whenever I want it


It's a hilarious, swaggering song.

P.S. to womanfish--thanks for the compliment!
