    Thrice (dunno what the deal is with the extra ambulance sirens)


    Again, similar playlist to what I listen to, so here's a few of what I'm additionally playing.

    I'd add some more but that's enough of a break, time to get back to work.

    Jonathan Coulton is awesome - got some cover songs, and hilarious songs of his own.
    Dream Theater is good if you like alittle progressive metal. The music is meant to be enjoyed as full albums. Scenes from a Memory and Octavarium are arguable their two best.
    Rush - Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves are two great albums.

    last of all.

    Queen. They have tons of different flavours of music. Their greatest hits albums cover a nice range of music, however, they have some other songs that are to good to miss. Keep yourself alive, doing all right, ogre battle, tie your mother down, stone cold crazy.

    Those are all of my favourites that I think most people would enjoy.

    *EDIT* Please let me know what you think of these, should you try them out.

    How'sabout:

    The Starting Line

    and MSTRKRFT for good measure. Because MSTRKRFT rocks. But seriously, your taste in music is probably more appealing to people than my love for emo, pop-rock, and techno.

    I'm noticing a lack of 'Cake' in that little list of yours. Cake is awesome. You've probably heard of them, but if not, *look them up.* If you just know of them, than *look them up*...they are worth a least three looks.

    I could draw up a huge suggestion list, but I think it would be more helpful if I just boiled it down to the three bands I think you would enjoy the most based upon the type of music on your playlist:

    1. Thrice (begin with The Artist in the Ambulance)
    2. Coheed & Cambria (begin with In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth)
    3. At The Drive-In (begin with Relationship of Command)

    All three bands fall into the post-punk/post-hardcore genres in very different ways, and all are highly worth your time.

    Well, I'd start by listening to older Against Me! and going through Fat Wreck Chords current stock of bands. Look for the Lawrence Arms (avoid their first 2 albums but the next 3 or 4 are some of the best punk of the decade) and the Loved Ones.

    Finch is also lumped in a lot with Glassjaw, I don't hear it myself but if you want to check them out start with their first album.

    I second the Streetlight Manifesto recommendation, they're the band that got me into punk and its subgenres.

    Go here for a decent list of the more important releases of 2007.

    If you like those bands like Protest (yay!) and Senses Fail (NAY!) then you could probably start getting into more hardcore. Go for The Refused (The Shape of Punk to Come is a classic), Boy Sets Fire (one of the best hardcore bands of the 90s, was part of Victory's original crop before the bulldog started to cry), Dillinger Escape Plan (technical mathcore at it's best and the only one of the four still around), and The Blood Brothers (Probably my favorite hardcore band, they take a genre filled with people who just try to shout and be manly and mosh and totally turn it on its head. Trippy, sometimes poppy, sometimes creepy. It's probably not for you but you have to listen to em). They are all incredibly influential and its good to try 'em all.

    For good pop punk go listen to Say Anything's ...Is a Real Boy, if you like it check out the new album, In Defense of the Genre.
    Oh, yeah, and I have to mention the Gaslight Anthem. Best band to come out of 2007. Period.

    For those of you guys who like the white stripes you might want to check out the black keys, a couple of dudes from ohio i believe that play similair music but less punkish and more bluesy.

    also there is a really kick ass band from england called oceansize that kinda remind me of tool in the fact that most of their songs are longer than 5 min but arnt like them at all, here lemme see if i can find a video on youtube of em.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8OzPvNrzP4
