Thread: Need recommendations for "new" music

  1. #1


    Default Need recommendations for "new" music

    Lately I've been feeling that I'm listening to the same songs over and over again - which is great cause they're great songs - however, I'd like to discover some "new" music. The radio is a waste of time and I have no music channels that play alternative rock/punk. Therefore, I hope some of you would help me out by recommending some bands or songs I should listen to.

    My taste in the alternative/punk genre is as follows:
    - The Offspring (everything they've ever released)
    - Bad Religion (not so much the early stuff but from The Gray Race and so forth)
    - Rise Against (everything before Endgame)
    - Blink 182, Sum 41, Millencolin, AFI, Green Day, Billy Talent, Against Me, All-American Rejects, Midtown, Bloodhound Gang,

    I also love rock and soft rock:
    U2, R.E.M., Longwave, Manic Street Preachers, Blur, Cranberries, Travis (their earlier stuff), Coldplay (just their first 2 records), Stiltskin, Thirteen Senses.

    Hope you guys could help me out with some recommendations! Thanks!

    Recently I discovered The Living End, quite good in my opinion.

    Hi! Thanks for the tip! I actually have a handful of The Living End's songs (incl. those you sent me) and I really like them! Have you heard All Torn Down? Great song.

    Give American Pyscho or Famous Monsters by the Misfits a listen. While the original Misfits records were pretty edgy, they really embraced the pop punk sound with these records.

    Hate to be that dude, but no one should ever really subject themselves to Danzigless Misfits ever.... Such awful records.

    I still maintain that the first two records with Graves weren't bad. I cannot speak for anything afterwards.

    Also, if you're not into the Ramones, I'd say Rocket to Russia is a great starting point, taking into account the bands you've listed.

    Default You're reminding me of school again...

    Hello!
    Hello!
    My name is Mark, what's your name?
    My name is Frank. How are you, Mark?
    I'm fine, thanks. How are you, Frank?
    I'm fine as well, how kind of you! What music do you like?
    I like punk rock very much, especially pop punk.
    Me too, that's so cool!
    Do you think you‘d sell your soul
    To just have one thing to turn out right?

    Well I think your problem is you like 80s/90s alt rock. A long time ago someone on this board recommended Gaslight Anthem.

    Otherwise you need to branch out to similar music from that time period from more obscure countries. Luckily for you, I'm here. At that time, D-A-D and Sort Sol were popular here. I'm more into Sort Sol personally. Song Recommendations:
    D-A-D
    Sleeping My Day Away
    Laugh and a Half

    Sort Sol
    Rhinestone
    Holler High

    You recommended this song ages ago and I still have it on my computer - it's an awesome song. But unfortunately, I didn't really care for the rest of their stuff.
