I'm really into (what I call) the "Green Day" knock off bands. Basically it's that punk/fun rock stuff. Here are some of my favotites (to give you a better idea of what I'm looking for): A New Found Glory - Dressed To Kill A New Found Glory - Boy Crazy Andrew W.K. - We Want Fun Blink 182 - All the Small Things Bowling for Soup - Ohio (Come Back To Texas) Bowling for Soup - Life After Lisa Bowling For Soup - Down For The Count Butch Walker - My Way Fountains of Wayne - Stacy's Mom Good Charlotte - Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous Good Charlotte - Girls & Boys Good Charlotte - Riot Girl Good Charlotte - The Day That I Die Riddlin' Kids - I Feel Fine Simple Plan - (Every song) SR71 - Kick Me When I'm High Sugarcult - Memory Sugarcult - How Does It Feel Zebrahead - Playmate Of The Year Hopefully that's a good sampling to give you an idea of what I'm looking for. I guess "Bowling for Soup" is the best band to compare this fun/punk stuff to. Can anyone suggest bands (that aren't well known) that fit this category? They have to be heavy, but not really heavy. They need that melodic/fun/alternative sort of edge to them.
