What non-mainstream bands would you recommend?

    Non-mainstream = any band that is rarely talked about on TV, radio, MTV, magazines, etc. or has very few music videos shown on MTV channels.

    I know there are a lot of great bands out there that aren't as talked about as Linkin Park but a particular few come to mind: Brand New, Further Seems Forever, Hiding With Girls, From Autumn to Ashes, Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice, A Perfect Circle, Tool.

    Most of us here have probably heard of these bands but I bet if you tell them to the average person on the street (esp. in the UK) he/she wouldn't know who the hell they are. At least my friend doesn't. :wth:

    Please stop typing in caps, it's annoying. And the fact that you like them more than all the other bands doesn't make them better. :p
