Thanks, I did it for irony, a non-mainstream way of spelling it. But anyway, people that go around correcting peoples grammar make me sick, kill yourself.

10 Bands You Must Listen To Before Death!l

There are so many great under-the-radar bands out there that nobody listens or pays any attention to yet they’re incredibly talented. If you don’t know them, search them on youtube or spotify, but just make sure you give them a fair chance. 

  1. 88 Fingers Louie - Back On The Streets (1998) - Punk Rock 101 right here. An underground punk band from Chicago set the scene on fire with their last album before breaking up to from other bands such as Rise Against. If you ever wondered where Rise Against got their core punk lining then listen to this album. It’s fast and in your face but very passive as it’s lyrics are not malicious or violent. These are the straight edge punks that believe in eco-friendliness and ‘meat is murder’ hokum which gives a fresh twist on the stereotype of drug-addled punks monging out on the mosh pit floor foaming at the mouth. It’s a fantastic album from start to finish and doesn’t let the pace go for one second. Must listen!
  2. Tool - 10,000 Days (2006) - Tool are an extremely niche band that requires a certain kind of ear to really enjoy. It’s lyrics are puzzling, the time signatures are irregular, the songs are upwards of 5 minutes so why should you bother? Because once you get past the fact that it’s not ‘mainstream music’ and it’s a bit unconventional, you find an expertly precise piece of music. It didn’t win a grammy for the snazzy cover ya’know? The influence of heavy metal and punk rock are evident in the palm muting and heavy kick drum but also the ideology of freedom and restriction. ‘The Pot’ turns the tables on the average marijuana hater and asks them the questions they need the answers for. It’s an absolutely incredible album, but sad that we haven’t heard anything from them in 6 years…
  3. At The Drive-In - Relationship of Command (2000) - The third album of progressive post-hardcore rockers At The Drive-In is generally considered one of the most important albums of the past 25 years. A fusion of heart felt lyrics about drug addiction with striking riffs sets At The Drive-In apart from others. Unfortunately breaking up to form The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In’s hardcore sound was young but the maturity of the lyrics and music was enough to drive the band to new found popularity. Thankfully they’re back together and are performing this year at various festivals.
  4. Bombay Bicycle Club - I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose (2009) - Indie Rockers Bombay Bicycle Club didn’t have the easiest of start-ups. After an arduous journey on TV show ‘Road to V’ they managed to fend off other bands which secured them a spot at 2006’s V Festival. 3 Years pass and they release their first full length play which was an absolute shock to the indie culture. Bands like Kooks, The Pigeon Detectives and The Wombats had all began to fizzle out but Bombay breathed new life into the sub-genre. Their unique blend of relaxed indie rock and elements of blues, jazz and pop was a sure fire hit. Utterly beautiful music.
  5. Brand New - The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me (2004) - No words can describe how amazing this album is. The lyrics are deep. The music is chilling. The simple yet beautiful guitar mixed with the mad thump of a heavy drum set and power chords creates a truly genuine take on the pop-punk/emo rock genre. This album for me though was their masterpiece. The undeveloped Your Favourite Weapon was too young and naive for my liking but this albums shows their maturity. The petty writing and teenage angst is too visceral in Your Favourite Weapon but in this album they really matured their sound to perfection. A must listen. Please, go listen. The opening track is probably thee best opening song ever.
  6. Deaf Havana - Fools and Worthless Liars (2011) - The brilliant thing about Deaf Havana is that they realised how awful the first album was so not only did they improve musically dramatically, they decided to sing about it. They sing about what they know and what they feel which is why I listen to music. To see something through someone elses eyes. His voice echoes through your mind hours after listening as you can hear his passion clattering through the speakers, poking at your heart strings. I listen to every song on this album, I do not skip one!
  7. Francesqa - We Live EP (2011) - The saddest story out of all of these bands. A band that was finally getting the recognition they deserved proved all too much for one of the band members and they decided to call it quits. Such a loss to music as their take on the alternative rock genre was one to be remembered. The only EP on the list but what an EP it is. The quiet bridges that lead into the strong choruses really bring through the emotion. Go listen.
  8. Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight (2008) - A brilliant album from Scottish indie rock outfit Frightened Rabbit. Great album from start to finish with heavy influences from folk rock and indie rock. The album is a bit lovey-dovey for my liking but nevertheless really nice easy listening. 
  9. The Gaslight Anthem - Sink Or Swim (2007) - Brian Fallon’s finest hour was when he pumped this gem out. It’s hard, New Jersey style rock from the boys inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Miles Davis. They fuse nu-school and old-school together in a majestic cocktail of fast paced lyrics about the James Dean style days of quarter-mile drag races, pin-up girls and make-out point. They bring a generation forgotten into the 21st century with  one of the best albums of the noughties. 
  10. Man Overboard - Man Overboard (2011) - I had to put these in this list. They’re my generation, they were influence by the same people (even taking their name from the blink-182 song I so dearly love) and sing about the things that affect/affected me as a teenager and as an adult. They bring my life… well to life but with a punk-pop beat of fast paced drums and power chords. I love it. Thee best pop-punk band out there, go take a listen.

I am fucked.

You never understand how much a person means to you until they’re taken away and all that’s left is loneliness. All that’s left is a pit in your stomach, tears in your eyes, shaken hands and an empty spot in your bed. She meant the world to me but I was too fucking stupid to realise it before it was too late. I mean, I hope she realises that we love each other and that’s what matters. But I doubt she will. Obsessed with the story book romance of rose petals and candlelit dinners, she won’t ever accept me saying ‘i love you’ as enough. I love her with everything inch of my being. She made me feel like me. I can’t give up on her, I really can’t. I understand love songs now. Your mind tells you that you must get over it but this deep thought from inside tells you to keep fighting. I would wait an eternity for her but that’s not realistic. I need to start moving on just in case she doesn’t want me back. The worst thing about it was that I never got one last kiss, one last cuddle, one last hug, one last dinner, etc. If I knew they were my last then I would of cherished them as if it was my last day on earth but I took them for granted, like I did with her. She was beautiful, amazing and everything I wanted/needed in this world. I know I’m a hopeless romantic that wants everything to be fine with some sort of restored equilibrium, but it’s not. She’s fucking gone. She’s left my distraught and dead inside. I feel numb. Like I’ve had my heart ripped out. I understand what love is now. Now that it’s too late to do anything about it. I love you, if you read this, you are the girl I would give up breathing for and the girl I will wait for as long as I can. I will leave the space in my bed ready for when you jump back in it and give me a cuddle. I will leave your make up just the way you left it in my bathroom. I will hold on to our memories for as long as I can. I am in love with you, I hope you realise you are too and we can work this out.
