I love Relient K - I’ve been listening to them since ‘Sadie Hawkins Dance’ was their popular new song, and I got to see them in concert about a year ago. They put on an amazing live show, so if you ever get the opportunity to see them in concert, GO! You won’t regret it...
Other good songs from little-known artists:
You Know - Pivitplex
Sing Me To Sleep - Showbread
George Romero Will Be At Our Wedding - Showbread (yes, this song is about zombies)
Eyes - Rogue Wave
Child of Dust - Thrice
“Crazy On You” and “Magic Man” by HEART
Personally, I've been on an Alice Cooper kick for the past year. He's phenomenal in concert, an underrated writer, and "one of us" when it comes to political philosophy.
My personal favorites: anything off Welcome to My Nightmare, Alice Cooper Goes to Hell and the criminally ignored Special Forces.
Other great songs:
I Don't Want to Fall in Love by She Wants Revenge (modern band, new wave vibe)
Taper Jean Girls, Red Morning Light, Molly's Chambers by Kings of Leon (a great new band)
I've also rediscovered Mott the Hoople. All the Young Dudes out-Bowies Bowie.
Another group I recently heard
The Shins - New Slang
A couple more
Joe Jackson - It’s Different for Girls
Eric Johnson - S.R.V.
cKy — Flesh into Gear, and Familiar Realm
I scrolled down, looking to see if anyone had posted anything by the Junkies. Low and behold, there you were. So, thought I’d add a few of my own favorites to your list.
Oh, and I forgot “I Hope I dont Fall in Love With You” by Tom Waits
