The Prodigy - Invaders Must Die

In The UK The Prodgy have 4 #1 albums, and two #1 singles. I wouldn't call them unknown by any stretch of the imagination. Firestarter was perhaps one of the biggest club songs of it's generation.

 

Their live show is Epic, btw, and they're still regularly on the festival circuit.

 

Personaly I'd say Flogging Molly deserve a bit more love. Especially in the UK.

Dismal Euphony

 

They disbanded, I believe in 2001, and I've only met one other person who has heard of them before I showed it to them. They were a Norwegian Heavy Metal/Black Metal band and I think they are pretty KA.

Some of you have bizarre standards for what counts as unknown. If you can Google your band and get well over a million results, that probably means they're not unknown. Just sayin'.

Not certain on that score. If I can pull up 30,000 results for the Peatbog Faeries, who are pretty much unknown, then I can see how some slightly better known but still not famous bands might just hit over the million mark. Suffice it to say that if a band has had a chart hit, they're not unknown.

 

I will grant, though, that a band may be very well known and wildly popular in one country and relatively unknown in another. eg: Terrorvision. Quite a big band in the UK (of their time, anyway) but almost unheard of in the US.

Having just had my mind pinged by the metal genres thread I felt the need to say that Skindred seriously deserve some more love.

The only related band to this i can think of is Lo-bat (8-bit music) but he/she's not really a musician anymore?

 

And lol at The Prodigy being 'unknown'. I heard Firestarter on the radio just last month and went to a concert of theirs in Febuary.(and I'm listening to their music right now butthatsnotthepoint)

I mean, if I'm hearing them in Australia AND when I was in the U.K I think we can safely say they're not unknown?

I would not say that The Bravery is an unknown band per-say, but it certainly, no one ever seems to recognize thier name when I bring it up in conversation. The Bravery is really an amazing band, more people should give them a listen. (Their genre is Alternative Rock)

Animal Kingdom:

the vocalist voice is mesmerising. I think those who are into Placebo and that sort of music will like this band.

Besides, The Maccabees is a nice british band, their music is very relaxing, always helps me to calm down smile.gif

Also The Ting Tings: they have very dynamic songs, energetic drums + lively vocal.

The Ropes too is a vastly under-rated american band, their style is kinda similar to Garbage and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Ima Robot--indie-punk-dance-awesomeness

 

The Fratellis-- Crazy, rowdy Scottish indie

 

The Wombats and The Pigeon Detectives--also good British indie

 

WOLFMOTHER!!!

 

They're not entirely unknown, but they deserve infinitely more love than they get. They are Led Zeppelin reborn, I'm not even kidding. If you love classic rock at all you will look up Cosmic Egg (their newest album)

Vermillion Lies (Met em, they're such lovely women).

Doctor Steel (doctorsteel.com! DOIT. ....He's helped me with homework before, he's a dear.)

Gogol Bordello (...no story here, sadly.)

And, they're not really unknown, quite popular actually, but I only know a grand total of three people who like their music (excluding myself), so I'll toss in the GazettE. X3
