That's strange. Even the cheerleaders at my school know what NIN is.

Contributing to the thread by trashtalking Green Day? A lot of people know that Green Day is the "fall" of punk. Some just choose to ignore it. On the other hand, there is a lot more to music than lyrics. If people ignore the genre of Green Day as punk, some people can choose to enjoy the band just for the music.

ok, how can someone not now that NIN is Nine Inch Nails? Are they really that old now? I guess maybe -_- (start looking around for my walker and reading glasses...)

I'm reasonably well versed in music but Interpol and Norma Jean are nowhere near well known bands... I don't think I've even heard of Norma Jean before. Like Kyo said, the vast majority of people aren't aware of them.

As far as I'm concerned "punk" died sometime in the early 80s. Everything since then has been necrophellia. It was dead long before Green Day started raping it's corpse in the mainstream. The only purpose punk has now is to let suburban teens feel like they're rebels when they hang out at the mall and go to shows - that and make a Hot Topic a shit ton of money.

I'm not saying the newer music is necessarily bad, it just all feels so uninspired to me. Like a bunch of kids trying really really hard to prove that they belong to this subculture... but failing miserably. I think the "punk spirit" has gone to different scenes, but it's been long absent from what is called punk today.

I never said well-known. I said fairly well-known. Just because it is not a band one person has not heard of does not make the band somewhat known. On the other hand, as a person heavily into rock and metal, my opinion could be very biased.

A while ago I spent a good time searching for new bands to listen to. I relied heavily on the site:
http://www.hamanaka.com/pilgrim2/eng_review.htm
It's a very good site to find progressive metal, progressive rock, melodic metal, power metal, etc bands that not everyone is aware of. DGM is a very good band. I only own two albums right now (Misplaced and Hidden Place), but the music is very good.

EDITED
Hm, I apologize. I misread your post on the top of this page about NIN.

I got into NIN a few months ago, really good stuff and a really cool name for a band.

I didn\'t know that they were that old.. formed in 1988

Fav songs :
-Wish (ok, to be honest. I heard the Linkin Park version of this and when i checked the real version i luved it, which then got me started on NIN)
-Perfect Drug
-The hand that feeds
-March of the pigs
-Starfuckers Inc

Commenting upon the statement that "Greenday caused the fall of punk";
In my book Greenday aren't punk!
The only real surviving punk I've found is German (Die Toten Hosen and Die Aerzte)
I consider Greenday to fall into "American Punk-Rock"
They still produce good songs though.

5 Songs;

Brothers at Arms - Dire Straits
Us and Them - Pink Floyd
Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
Hotel California - The Eagles
Airplane Song (Miles Between Us) - Stephen Speaks

Yes all but one of them's old school, but still, those bands made the best music.

I wish I could put more songs, I have too many to chose from (over 7 days on my computer alone - ie. not counting my LP's and recent aquisitions)

I liked NIN's hurt. Johnny Cash re-did that song. It was pretty good.

For a metalish band, look up A Breed Apart. I saw them live and they were really good. (I got them to autograph my cd and everything. ^_^.) Also, Life of Agony is pretty good too.

And for punk, I'm more of the Rancid/Misfits/The Casualties/ect. xP I think another good band that should be put down in history is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pink Floyd too (if that wasn't already stated before.)

Hmmm i think the OP was referring to bands that aren't well known but are just as good as popular ones based on 5 songs... I think Pink Floyd - although very good - is practicaly worshiped as demi-god and can't really be considered "unknown."

I agree with the Depeche Mode - Violator choice - that album is awesome and you don't really every hear about them anymore.
