    For alt/indie Butthole Surfers, Modest Mouse, and Sonic Youth. If you want some lighter stuff Gomez, The Killers, or Muse. For more experimental music go with Mars Volta. Radiohead is another good one, if you want alot rock go with their first 2 albums, if you want somethin a bit different and more towards electronic go with their newer stuff. Also based on the bands you named try out the bands The Rasmus or Sparta too.

    PHS, see you took my Fall Out Boy recommendation.......rocking....so more good stuff you should have a look at

    If you like the Emo Punk kinda sound
    Motion City Soundtrack
    The Early Novmeber
    The Movielife
    Matchbook Romance
    Count The Stars
    From First To Last
    Hidden In Plain Veiw
    Saves The Day
    The Starting Line
    If you feel like more stuff, check out pretty much any band on Drive Thru Records, its a sweet label


    If you like Coheed and Cambria two bands you need to hear

    My Chemical Romance and Brazil

    If you are into the whole accoustic emo rock Dashboard Confessional kinda thing Copeland is good

    the anniversary/rilo kiley for indie pop

    get up kids for indie rock/emo

    saves the day...couldn't agree more with you guys on that one

    the faint/postal service for electronica indie rock, the faint is edgier than postal service

    the new amsterdams for acoustic indie rock

    the strokes/hives

    the cure, they may have their roots from the 80's, but they are still amoung the best in terms of excellent pop rock

    Agree with Yrocks on Sublime and Pepper. My wife and I are surfers (she's top 3 in our state) and dig all the surf culture stuff:
    Donavon F./Jack Johnson/Sack Lunch (old school Rob Machado)/J Swift/Mason Jennings (the man!!)/Ben Harper/Pennywise/G Love/
    White Buffalo. Also really dig Big Head Todd (way underrated)/Bonepony/Indigenous/Paul Westerberg. It's all good. Grateful Dead/OAR/Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies. Rarely hear stuff I hate. Pretty open to tunes.

    Hey Yonex, I've been jamming to Pat M for over 10 years. I grew up and went to undergrad in VA (Pat is from northern VA) and probably saw them 20 times during college. Some other great VA bands that were just getting their groove on in the early to mid 90's were Agents of Good Roots, Everything, BabyFat, Jimmie's Chicken Shack (from Maryland actually but played a lot in VA) and of course, Dave Matthews Band. Twas a great time to be in college.

    Lifehouse and 3 Doors Down are two that come to mind, or maybe those are classified as pop/rock.

    I'm not too into the hardcore rock.

    There are alot of bands, that have good music, but really bad vocals. My favorite bands are:

    Yellowcard
    The Starting Line
    Story of the Year
    New Found Glory
    Fallout Boy
    The used
    Something Corporate
    My chemical Romance
    Brand New
    Linkin Park
    Breaking Benjamin
    Switchfoot
    Simple Plan
    Matchbook Romance

    And I'm surprised no one mentioned them, but Mae is a really really good band.
