    I love Built to Spill, the Shins, and of course Ugly Cassanova, but I will DL a few songs by each of the other artists and if they seem like my cup of tea I will come back and ask which albums to purchase. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'm looking for some great psychedelic tunes, specifically from the 60's. Don't mention Jeff. Airplane, as I already have a lot of them.
    I don't know if this is much help, but I suggest early Steve Miller Band and Joe Cocker (not physcadelic, really, but 60's hard rock). wo0O

    Alright, the stuff afterstasis listed was good, but here's a few more.
    Pink Floyd - Piper at the Gates of Dawn (obvious but Syd Barrett era Floyd is good stuff.)
    Tomorrow (UK)
    United States of America (kinda Jefferson Airplaney but more experimental and electronic based.)
    The Pretty Things

    And Cubecubed, I would look into a band called Fair to Midland...there isn't really much to compare them to, but I think they're most like Coheed.

    It's not old, but I've been listening to Carla Bruni a lot lately. Very folky.

    francoise hardy, anna karina, france gall, alice dona, sylie vartan, chantal goya, marie laforet, claire dixon, sheila, christine pilzer, ria bartok, cleo, and patricia carli.

    a lot of these artists can be found on the "ultra chicks" series of compilations, so that may be a good place to turn for more names.

    Everything Afterstasis mentioned

    Where to start with Darkthrone? I already have Transilvanian Hunger, is that good enough to start or should I get anything else?

    yeah, i'd say that's a great starting point (and their finest album).
    if you're into exploring their more punk-influenced material you can check out "F.O.A.D." and if you'd like to hear their take on death metal then check out "soulside journey".

    if you'd rather work your way up to "transilvanian hunger" then the two preceding albums are also fantastic... "a blaze in the northern sky" and "under a funeral moon".

    What genre? There's tons of rock genres from the 90's, but if you're looking for grunge, then go with what instantdeath said. Especially Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. and the Backstreet Boys
    good grunge? the band Tad: inhaler and infrared riding hood are awesome!

    it's hard to recommend a bad brains album, because the "self-titled", "i against i", and "rock for light" are all pretty damn close in quality, but i'd start with the self-titled and then get one of the other two if you like it.

    black flag's "damaged" is definitely the place to start with them.

    i'm afraid i can't help with bad religion... they never did it for me.
    for bad religion, start with generator, then recipe for hate

    Check out Fragile. One of the best prog albums ever. Also, you should check out The Yes Album, which Starship Trooper is on.

    I would recommend listening to Tales from Topographic Oceans last due to the length of each four songs. Other wise that is exactly what I would suggest besides possibly trying Drama.

    Hey, I've been looking for some good Prog metal lately. I already know all the obvious ones though (Dream theater, Opeth, Between the Buried and Me, Pain of Salvation, Symphony X, Cynic). Thanks!

    If you don't mind Prog. Death, try Gojira.

    Those are great records, and Welcome to Earth is AMAZING. The next record was actually more synthpop, but I love it anyhow. the last record though, 3 years ago, was just awful.
