Arcade Fire
"My Body is a Cage" seems very Twilight applicable. I also enjoy the video of the band playing "Neon Bible" in an elevator.


Local San Diego band that has an international following. Maybe one of the city by the sea's most well known exports - "Penelope", "Tripoli", "AFK", "Non-Photo Blue", and "From Nothing to Nowhere" are highly recommended by myself for you to become acquainted with this band. If y'all like Muse, you might like Pinback.

Since everyone else is dumping a ton of names, I may as well mention some others. Sorry if these have been mentioned, I was just linked to this thread from a PM and it's way too ****** huge to try and read every name-spam post.

Rob Zombie

One of the first CDs that I bought was "Hellbilly Deluxe". I had to buy it twice because my father threw away my first copy. Listen to the whole CD. It's good.

Murder City Devils
The song "Rum to Whiskey" always moves me, and not just in an emo-way either. Moves me like bloody lighting in my black heart. "Bear Away" is another cool song.

Edit: I have been seeing Dropkick Murphys here and there on this thread. You may like the sound of MCD if you like the Murphys.

As I Lay Dying

The song and music video - "Forever". The music video was filmed at Soma which is here in San Diego. These crazy SOBs are from San Diego (North County technically, I believe). My friend Jeremiah and Tim used to tackle each other in full football pads - and not on the football field, in the house with music blasted. Jeremiah also participated in helping my cauliflower ear swell to the size of a purple, juicy mango. Thanks Jeremiah. AILD is metal. You may like it, you may not. I hope you do.

Band from Temecula, CA. They recorded one of my favorite records in North County, San Diego. The album is "What It Is to Burn". I recommend every song on that album especially the title track ("What It Is to Burn") with the violin instrumental intro - not the techno, choppy intro - blah :-P

Silversun Pickups
An LA band that doesn't sound like they are trying to be Orange County suburban screamo (think everyone trying to be Avenged Sevenfold) or sounding like anyone else really. Not the kind of depth that I expect from LA. Their CD "Carnavas" has been compared to the Smashing Pumpkins early grandiose stuff... I guess if one really needs to prove their super-music knowledge by trying to confine the sound of a band to a hip reference then sure, you could say they sound like the Pumpkins.

You could also say that "Kaliphornia is a state of mind".

I would say, "Check out 'Lazy Eye', 'Melatonin', and 'Little Lovers So Polite' from that Pickups CD and chill."

More recc's to come. I will TRY and read through this thread and drop some names that have not been recommended. SpamspamspamspampostcountpostcountspamIloveEdwardblablabla

i recommend alll of this.
some other stuff
- opeth
- Led Zepplin
- Black Sabbath
- Beastie Boys
- Slipknot
- System of a Down
Team Emmett- EDC, Inc. Emmett Demolition Crew.
Team Rosalie- Every Rose has its Thorns
