Just one? Screw that.

"Weird Al" Yankovic- White and Nerdy though almost all the songs are hilarious.

Nirvana- I can't decide. Pick a number between and included one and four. 1234 essentially the ones I've heard so far.

Rammstein- this time one and two. 12

I'd have to say Blind Guardian. Symphonic power metal FTW. Mirror Mirror and Otherland are good starting songs. If you don't like those, you probably won't like Blind Guardian. But if you like those, then definitely check out their album Nightfall in Middle-Earth, it's widely considered their magnum opus. (Wikipedia says it, so it must be true!)

Can anyone recommend some softer Indy Rock similar to what the Shins did with Chutes Too Narrow and to a lesser extent their other two albums, the Kaiser Chiefs newer Album, Starlight Mints, Interpol, Modest Mouse's last 3 Albums, Magnetic Fields, The Hidden Cameras, Architecture In Helsinki, Nikola Sarcevic, Cold War Kids, Decemberists(Not so much but just so I don't get this as a response), The Hold Steady? I'm kinda running low on Indy/Alternative stuff that wouldn't normally get radio play.

As for good music that I like that I think other people should hear:

Astronautalis - A local battle rapper turned rockabilly country rap fusion who I won't miss if he plays here. His shows are great as he sings songs from his albums mixed with free styles he makes up on the spot using topics provided by the audience. I haven't listened to the first 2 songs on his myspace but the other 4 are great.

Grand Buffet - A rap duo from Pittsburgh - Very nerdy type rap but extremely fun to listen to and most of their live shows are half comedy act.

Rickolus - You probably won't ever see a commercial album from this dude. He looks like Buddy Holly and his on-stage performances are akin to interpretive dance. His myspace is hideous but I am die hard in love with his songs. If you like what he has out on his Myspace there should be more on his web site.

The Edguy suggestion was pretty good. They actually sound a bit like Queensrÿche (particularly during the chorus). If you don't know Queensryche (yeah...only doing the umlaut once), they did an incredible concept album called "Operation: Mindcrime":

Here's one I haven't yet seen recommended.

Brendan Benson. If you're a fan of The Raconteurs, he's the guy that sings half of the songs and is not Jack White. In fact, when I got The Raconteurs record, my first thought was, "Wow, this sounds exactly like I would've expected: Jack White mixed with Brendan Benson."

He's got three records, and a fourth is on the way, and it's a shame he isn't more well known outside of his collaboration with White. His first album, One Mississippi, is just a little slice of great, and it was completely ignored when it came out in the mid 90's. Due to lack of sales, Virgin Records dropped him, and the album became impossible to find (I am quite proud to say that I have an original pressing of it :mrgreen: ). A couple of years ago it was re-issued with additional tracks and some alternate takes, etc, and can be found at places like Amazon.com. This is the type of record that will be discovered one day, twenty years from now, by someone important at Rolling Stone and they will declare it a "lost classic" that everyone should own. Get a copy now and you'll be ahead of the curve. :lol:

These two videos are for songs from his second record, Lapalco (couldn't find any from the first one, sorry), but they're a good indication of his stuff.

the vocal harmonies are amazing, Steve Howe is a master at the guitar, Bill Bruford is by far my favorite drummer of all time next to John Bonham, and all the songs on these albums are put together really well in my opinion

Lifter Puller - Let's Get Incredible

If you've ever heard of the Hold Steady, they've got the same singer. I tried finding something on youtube, but it was a bad quality live song, and they seemed pretty drunk.
Too bad all their albums are out of print. If you can find the album Fiestas and Fiascos, I strongly recommend Lifter Puller vs the End of the Evening and The Flex and the Buff Result.

Fragile and Close to the Edge for the winnage.

Speaking of prog rock, I reccomend Premiata Forneria Marconi, an italian band, especially their album "Per Un Amico". http://youtube.com/watch?v=esHEPt41Sjc

I think part of the reason why I like ACBHY so much is because part of it is about reminisce. I used to talk the streets of Dallas when I was younger, and it really brings back feelings of living in the moment, of people watching and things going on.

I really have to be in the right mood to appreciate Trying to Find a Balance.

Earlier I said I would share. Luckily for you I'll keep that promise.

Anyway: It's Mystery Repeats, the second album by Pete Philly and Perquisite. Their first got a lot of critical acclaim, so a lot of people, including me, feared the second-album-syndrome. Luckily, they lived up to the expectations. Mine anyway.

Image

How can I describe it? It's as if these guys took jazz, hip hop, classical music and sounds from all over the world and threw them in a big blender. There's the Clap Kick Flow, which is actually comprised of nothing but Pete Philly's vocals, Traveller, with a 3-minute Spanish-influenced intro that reminds me of Ojos de Brujo, the very very spacy piano-driven song aptly named High Tide, Mystery repeats with its violins and of course Q & A, which comes closest to pure hip hop. Perquisite seems to be able to turn any sound into an awesome song. The lyrics are just as good: "My lyrics ain't gotta be deep / Nope, they gotta be real / Represent something that I feel". My description doesn't do the album any justice, I guess you will have to see (or rather, listen) for yourself. In any case, even if you're not that into hip hop, check these guys out.

Now check these guys out and buy their album.

edit: I forgot - lamahange.

If you are into heavy metal, hard rock, progressive rock, post metal, ambient, drone, whatever you want to call it...Isis is the band for you.

Their most recent album, In The Absence of Truth, was released in 2006. The band itself is only ten years old, but they can be pretty easily divided into two different eras. When they were younger, they were very heavy, employing a muddy sound with strained, screaming, vocals.

Their Oceanic (2002) release sort of changed everything, and this album, along with Panopticon (2004) and In The Absence of Truth, has expanded on their post-metal sound.

It is difficult to think of Isis in terms of single songs. Each album has tracks that are all linked. I would say it's easier to think of their music as telling a story or exploring a theme.

Their website:

I like 'sunday morning'. The feeling that there's something nasty you're better off not knowing.

I recommend Mogwai.

From the depths of youtubes: Friend of the Night, Hunted by a Freak, Stanley Kubrick, Christmas Steps (live) and Punk Rock:, which I'm just about to watch.
Also they have a podcast of some of their songs. and I love Explosions in the Sky - I wanna see them next January :)

Man, you want epic, I give you Godspeed You! Black Emperor. These guys are a bunch of Canadian anarchists, but if you can get past that, they make some of the most amazing instrumental music you will ever hear.

To Victorkm, and anyone else who wants some good indy rock: The Bedtime and Colour Revolt. Sorry to break the rules, but these bands are simply fantastic at what they do. They are both pretty small, so you might have to hunt for their music, but its worth it.

RUSSIAN ROCK/METAL is the real deal.

Specifically, I would recommend Ария, Би-2, Кипелов, and Слот.
Argh! I can't embed urls with cyrillic letters, so I'll just paste the links to their last.fm pages:

Кипелов: http://www.last.fm/music/Кипелов

Also, Apocalyptica is a good Finnish band. They play metal on electric Cellos.

Re: Recommend one artist

Josh Ritter is an artist I would wholeheartedly recommend. His music is in the vein of folk-rock; a mix of guys like Dylan and Springsteen, but also very unique and with a lot of energy.

This is a Youtube video of one of his songs played live. Check out other stuff of his, too, because it's very varied.

Hidden excitedly, containing laughter.
Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind
Cannot bear very much reality.

WAIT!

Did someone mention The Velvet Underground and not mention Venus in Furs?? Surely not!
