We've all got them, What's your favorite band no one has ever heard of (in Off-topic)
Please list the name of band and type of music they play, as well as a link to their webpage/profile/ect. Please only list one or two to avoid huge response threads. I figure this may help us CB'ers get turned onto some music we would otherwise miss out on. I'll start.

Freakwater - Two women, primarily. Folksy, alternate country. Harmonious.
Dieselhed - West Coast stoners. Alternative punk country. Whack.
The names are unique enough that folks can Google themselves, if interested. I don't think Dieselhed is together any more, and not even sure they have much of a web presence.

One of my all time favourite bands who did absolutely nothing:
Band: The Prisoners Type of music: 60's influenced psychedelic garage punk pop
A mix of The Doors/Small Faces/Hendrix/Stranglers/Zeppelin who burned brightly for a few years in the 80s then imploded; very influential on a lot of British bands who all achieved much much more success.

Type of Music: Rock (worth a listen)
My Space: Cog on My Space
Keep in mind that I know a lot of obscure music and could probably find a Gregorian rap group if I were in the mood for something like that. Unusual combinations are always fun to explore for the first time, and these are two groups that I've seen live (snicker) in Columbus, Ohio at some point over the past two or three years.
Vampire Beach Babes
Gothabilly (with a little bit of surfer music thrown in during their early period)
Lester Tombstone Raww and the Pine Box Boys

An old band of mine Slinky with a fantastic singer, Kirsty, who now performs around the world singing opera and with several choirs. Very successfully too.
July 17 2007 8:34 PM EDT
Though maybe they are getting better known now. A dark avant garde symphonic metal band from Adelaide, AU.

The Get Up Kids
July 20 2007 7:21 AM EDT
Apocalyptica is awesome... although I question the "classical" classification. :D
4 cellos is what makes it classical metal rather than just metal :)
I actually went to see them live a couple of years ago, pure brilliance.
I can't remember the website right now but the band is called:
lets call them : Symphonic metal i like them :)
im not actually sure if its not nationally known or something :D
July 20 2007 9:25 AM EDT
D'oh. I misread the initial post and only read classical, and not classical metal. My bad.
Nightwish are one of the most famous bands in their genre and most people will have heard of them (not necessarily heard them)
July 20 2007 11:32 AM EDT
and yes nightwish rules
most of the bands i like people havent heard of lol.
2 of my current faves are Systematic and Soilwork
I've never actually met anyone that knows about Nightwish. i ask them all though :) Thats why i thought that most people didn't know about them. <b>I</b> heard about them via <i>wikipedia</i>. some obscure link =D.
Sorry didn't pick HTML :)
July 20 2007 4:15 PM EDT
The Getup Kids aren't a band that no one has heard of. In fact, up until their demise they were quite popular, having had several songs on [main stream] radio stations across America.
July 21 2007 6:39 PM EDT
Does anyone know of any bands that sing in sotto voce? I like that style, if there is some acoustic guitar, or instruments in there that made it sounds nice.
July 21 2007 8:30 PM EDT
I've said it before and I'll say it again:
you probably haven't heard of them but the music is soo good (if you like rock)
July 22 2007 12:35 AM EDT
Iced Earth, listen, they rule.
I'm not sure if people have heard of it or not but anyway I really like Lostprophets.
July 22 2007 2:46 AM EDT
you guys wanna know bands?
Tomorrow's Hero - Its Only July
Kiss Kiss - Vagabond
My American Heart - The Shake
tops all your underground music :)
July 22 2007 2:48 AM EDT
<b>READ MY POSTTTT above!!!!
Im sure you will be pleased!
July 22 2007 5:28 AM EDT
I've heard of The Get Up Kids.
Oh, and lostprophets, a lot of people know of them :P
A band that I've liked that I don't think many people have heard, maybe its just hear in Australia, but Amber Pacific
have taken to my liking.

Band Name: Social Code

Fusion Orchestra - skeletons in Armour (album)
White Noise - Electric Storm (one for the oldies)
July 26 2007 2:00 PM EDT
Yes, nightwish are awesome. They are releasing stuff with the new lead singer soon. She has *amazing* eyes.
I love Within Temptation - similar music to nightwish. A lot of people have heard of them.
My favourite band not many people has heard of is Dry Cell, but a lot of people know of their song "Body Crumbles" because of the queen of the damned soundtrack.
July 26 2007 2:07 PM EDT
Any listen to a genre called "zydeco"?? It's like french//caribbean music combined.
This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb
- But only because that name is funny and someone got arrested for putting one of their promotional stickers on their bike. I've never actually heard their music though.
Noxious Emotion - Because the front man for the band runs Seattle's only industrial music shop.
Static Engine - The main guy is cool.
There are a ton more but, I can't think of them right now.
July 26 2007 5:16 PM EDT
This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb is almost as good, musically speaking of course, as Plot to Blow Up The Eiffel Tower.
Jack Off Jill
Only for their funny name, don't really listen to them :P
