I endlessly run down a rabbit hole on spotify of 'related artists' and end up checking out tons of bands i somehow missed or wrote off over 17 years. my list would be very long.

Finding a lot of 80's brit power pop and realizing that the smiths are way over hyped and there are way better bands ie: Close Lobsters 'Foxheads Stalk This Land' record smokes any of that shit.

Inepsy.

Literally, I heard them only this year .. at the new years party and was like: whoa, those guys sound cool. Granted, I haven't heard another song apart from "Rock n Roll is the only way" and maybe I enjoyed a ton more because I was drunk but I'm checking them out later. I hope I'm not disappointed.

Same. I always ignored them thinking they we're boring generic stuff. Their new record is damn good.

But my real answer, Nirvana.

Metal basically. I was more into hardcore during high school, but I hung out with metal heads and I would listen to stuff like Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Slipknot, etc. But I've dug deeper into metal these past 5 years. I just got into Obituary, Crowbar, Morbid Angel, Sepultura, Bolt Thrower, etc.

Good Old Boys is an amazing album. I know he's probably a billionaire for the stuff he did with Disney, but I think he's criminally underrated as a songwriter.

Getting into different branches of metal, more death metal (Grave, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse) and doom metal/stoner stuff/groovy stuff (Sleep, Pallbearer, Baroness, Kveterlak). Have listened to stuff like it but very casually. Also stuff like Ride, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus And Mary Chain. Probably all cliche trendy stuff to get into now but fuck it shit is good and wish I was into it earlier.

Super late post: I literally started getting into early-mid 2000s metalcore in like, mid-2015. Norma Jean, Misery Signals, Every Time I Die, etc. I missed out on "the good ol' days" for sure. Also got into Baroness and Isis and Neurosis around the same time.

I only heard unwound for the first time a few months ago. I was mindlessly clicking through youtube vids, and I stumbled on their self titled that came out in '95. It was a fucking revelation. I listen to it all the time now.

90's Earache bands. I never had any interest in Metal, maybe Metal-influenced hardcore, but I was always aware of Earache releasing the good Metal-stuff. Now I'm into it, although not all of the time.

Every Deathwish band that came out the last 10 years sounds like 90's Entombed.

how about I tell you what I most frequently listen to and you tell me what you think I ought to love. Cuz aside from newer shit like PWR BTTM there really arent any "how did I miss this?" acts that come to mind.

Against me
Brand New
Weird Al
Radiohead
Godspeed you black emperor
Slowdive
Modest Mouse
Replacements
Alcest

thats whats up.

I mean, how does Weird Al not have his own XM station? There is so much material. Not just his 30 years of music, but all the old Dr Demento stuff and any kitschy pop music. Hes gotta be a historian of sorts when it comes to odd music.

I mean didnt he open up for Godspeed you black emperor at All Tomorrows Parties?

I never ever thought I'd listen to wizard rap or blackened metal. I've been into MGLA, Ad Nauseam, Adversarial, Leviathan, Mispyrming, Nahtrunar. I usually listen to metal for riffage, but I'm starting to feel atmosphere is more important than riffs.
