    Exclamation i need your brains!!

    the mainstream stuff is killing me! i'm looking for bands who aren't too hard core or too weird, like they have a really good sound (yeah i know that's kinda subjective) but who aren't mainstream. something i can kinda call my own. it doesn't have to be something i've never heard of just something that isn't being constantly played on the radio or something everyone is singing. prefferably punk, rock, metal, or alternative. so far i've only found a couple like peirce the veil, cute is what we aim for, vampire weekend, bayside ... and a couple others. but if you know anything like it please inform me. give me something newww!!

    ps: i posted this on a couple different genres to contact different users on the site.

    I just went to Warped Tour and got a few free CDs. So I have new artists and stuff.
    There may be more.
    And I'm always looking up new music, everyday.
    So I'll probably come back with more soon.(:
    If you want more, just ask.

    I'm horrible with genres though.
    I hope I did an okay job describing them.
    When I say pop rock, its kind of along the lines of like The Maine or We The Kings.
    Which I both like very much. Lol.
