Ok so there semi-big but not big big...

They are though way better than what they get credit for, when NSYNC, Britney and bloody Backstreet Boys get No.1 hits and the Jebs awesome new single, Fall Down can only reach 24 on the Aria charts....well its just wrong.

Well they aren't big now, but they will be soon!!!!!

In Bloom

Their sound is alternative, with a real 70s feel........ an interesting combination that really works. 2 of the 3 band members do happen to be Wilsons. BUT their sound is like heaps unique. They are popular around LA at the moment but are slowly gaining recognition, and yes, I had a word in Justyn Wilson's ear and one of their first stops when they get Carl in the damn plane is Melbourne. :D :D :D Their music is like NOTHING I would normally listen to, but I LOVE this stuff!!!!!!!!!! :D

You can hear some of their sounds at:

Jebediah are a semi commercialised band anyway so they are always gonna get in the aria charts....but they wont get in the top 10 cos they arent a boy band are they!
only boy bands or britney spears wanna bes get in the top 10.

Segression are reasonable but there are much much better metal bands in australia.
Earth deserve some recognition - they go off!!
Incubus are only just starting to get the recognition theyve deserved for hte past 6 years.
Sevendust get no recognition at all but are a bloody good band.
Amen have the best live show going around but very little people know about them in Australia.

I heard a song on Rage friday night called Fat Lip by a band called Sum41. It was a cool punk rock song and they seemed to have a whole lot of energy. Anybody know anything about them or heard of them?

That's not punk rock, that's just manufactured fodder.

hmmm.....

Well i really like Fuel but im not sure how much recognition they get overseas. In Australia they get very little recognition, especially lately with their single "bad day" (which i love! :)).

*note: i might be totally wrong..... but than again thats not new!

Fuel are quite big in America. They've headlined their own tours on many occasions.

I was gonna say them...

They really do sound good live, I haven't seen 'em live, but I have heard them live, and they sound great and the so does the crowd.

Dallas Crane are guys I went to school with quite funny catholic school boys being rockstars!!! Though they've just signed a European recording contract I believe, can't believe I've had a few beers with Peter (guitarist) at Hawthorn games!!
