Ok for years i've been listening to the same stuff and i am a little bored to say the least, this is who i like in no particular order.

1) Bruce Springsteen
2) U2
3) Simple Minds
4) REM
5) Coldplay
6) INXS (not anymore though)
7) Snow Patrol (just started)
8) Gary Numan
9) Busta Rhymes
10) Pet Shop Boys
11) The Cure
12) LTJ Bukem
13) Faith and the Muse
14) A lot of others but too many to count

Sorry i listen to a lot of music a lot of the time. Hopefully out of that you have a picture of what i like and can suggest new people or groups to me.

The new Head Automatica cd is incredible. Also I thought I was the only person on this board who loves Against Me! and Alkaline Trio. If you like a bit of weirdness check out Happy Hollow by Cursive. It's strange, yet great!

dodgey post alert :p - I prefer the term acquire... That's what I say when I nick stuff....

back on topic - I heard something in a cafe on holiday and was puzzled who it was (iPod was playing it through tthe stereo) so I asked - and they checked and said it was "The Waifs" some Australian girl band - so go eMule that (or whatever!)....

Happy listening - thought I'd suggest something random to help with the mix here....

PS just to be "old" never forget Fripp and the marvelous Brian Eno - google him if you like, but please do not ignore my suggestion - he is an incredibly talented musician/composer IMHO

Hey lancer, I listen to much of what you listed in your first post. So based on those, here's some I think you should check out. If you do iTunes, then I'd suggest you listen to previews of some of the Top Songs for each of these.

Death Cab for Cutie (latest 2 albums)
The Postal Service (Death Cab's singer is in this one)
The Fray
The Killers
Keane
Pete Yorn

I've been listening to Snow Patrol a lot, but you've already caught-on to them! :)

The Killers Another good band, like their new song
Keane Funny this, i was just about to post i found a new band called Keane just yesterday, really, really good.

So thanks for the suggestions, but i already listen to all of them haha.

I'm waiting for the new Killers album patiently, and I hope I'm not dissappointed with it.

I haven't gotten around to listening to the new Keane album, is it worth getting Ryan?

lancer: Look up Bloc Party.

I think it is, its a little different from the first album, but a good progression.

I just read up on them ,after i've finished listening to Hopes and Fears i'll give them a go.

Here's some bands that might fit in with what you listen to:
Fuel, The Postal Service, Live, Seether, GooGoo Dolls, Staind, Blessid Union of Souls, Stone Temple Pilots, Lifehouse, Audioslave, Collective Soul

Edit: Looking back on the thread, I see the Postal Service was suggested a couple of times ;)

listening to their first album, seems pretty good, a couple songs could have been left out, but mostly pretty good especially closer to the end of the album, "So here we are", is my fav so far.

I like the googoo dolls, but not really there new album, the others i think are too grunge for me.

That's great! Seeing as how our taste is so similar I'd like to hear about what else you come across. :)

I haven't purchased the new Keane album in its entirety, but I really, really, really like the song "Nothing in My Way."

Here's some bands that might fit in with what you listen to:
Fuel, The Postal Service, Live, Seether, GooGoo Dolls, Staind, Blessid Union of Souls, Stone Temple Pilots, Lifehouse, Audioslave, Collective Soul

Edit: Looking back on the thread, I see the Postal Service was suggested a couple of times ;)
I've always liked Live and STP and I like much of Audioslave (Chris Cornell is amazing). The more recent Live albums haven't been too special, but the old stuff is great. It's cool that many people seem to know of the Postal Service -- I hope they do some more stuff in the future.

Awesome! It took me a few listens to warm up to Bloc Party at first, it's hard to get through accent with all the crazy guitar riffs and super fast drumming. They are my favorite band at the moment.

And I just got floor tickets to see Bloc Party in November! :laugh:
