There may be a couple more recognizable names in there, but I decided to make a list with links to various bands I like that most people have not heard of. Think of it as an alternative to alternative. . Most of my music collection is metal, but I'd like to keep this topic focused on non-metal music (or bands that have a mix of non-metal and metal). If you have a favorite band that you think is a bit obscure and can find something to link to from them, please add your recommendations.
