Most Exciting Bands in America

17 10 2008

I’m not sure how I missed this back in August, but NME put out a list of 25 acts making America cool again here with videos of the bands and ‘sounds like’.  They followed up on it with an additional list Most Exciting Bands In America – NME.COM Users Have Their Say here with a lot of bands I’ve never heard of. 

Do you listen to any of the bands on here? Love/Hate?  It seems a pretty narrow range of music – the indie side of rock, hip hop, rap, etc.  I’ve starred the ones I listen to regularly.  Give a shout out for bands on here (or you think should be) that you love. I’m dying to check out some new stuff!
