  • Lesser known musical artist that you really enjoy

    I am making this thread for ANY genre of music, hence why I put artist rather than band. I don't want this to turn into a rock vs rap debate or anything like that. Just say someone that you like that many people haven't heard of; and if possible give a comparison.

    Slightly Stoopid: I know a lot of people have heard of them, but I am still surprised by the number of people who haven't. Brad Nowell signed them before he died, and they are a lot like Sublime, but with more reggae.

    Josh Grider Band: I don't listen to much country, so I can't really give a comparison. Hell I don't even really like country too much, but I love them.

    I'll post some more as I think of them.
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

              These may be not lesser known but I feel they aren't as appreciated as much as mainstream artists:

              Thin Lizzy
              The Kinks
              Public Enemy
              Ted Nugent
              Jethro Tull

              and the lesser known acts I like are as follows:

              Acid Bath
              Red Sparowes
              Human Waste Project
              Eyes of Fire
              Explosions In The Sky

                  I'm really into this guy they call 50 Cent. He's a lyrical genius.

                      Dude those bands were pretty mainstream in their time. Nuget was hella popular. Thin Lizzy was revolutionary (dual lead guitars baby!) and the Kinks were the fathers of punk.

                      Tull even won a grammy!

                      I'd like to nominate Porcupine Tree for this topic. Although I have no idea if they're unknown or not, they're pretty awesome.

                            Porcupine Tree!!!!!!

                            I cannot stress that enough. If you like Rock, you will probably find something to like about them. They are fringe successful, despite being around for more then a decade.
