Ive only bought few songs from the RBN, Powerman5000, Drowning pool and Lemon Demon. But i never really got into RBN But i hear lots of good things about it. Every time i check it out all i see is Hardcore metal songs. I like Industrial, Alternative, and rock songs.

Anybody know any good artists or popular good songs i should hear? Much appreciated.

    I can relate to the whole finding mostly "Hardcore metal songs" and preferring Rock, Alternative, and the like.
    And to that, here's my list of the artists that I'd either highly or might recommend (with each list representing the level of recommendation based on your criteria)...


    Artists of Songs I Currently Have on My RB Library That I'd Highly Recommend:
    The Shins
    of Montreal
    Longwave
    The Hold Steady
    Third Eye Blind
    Band of Horses
    Seether
    The Apples In Stereo
    Sunny Day Real Estate
    Surfer Blood
    The Get Up Kids
    OK Go
    Jukebox the Ghost
    Alien Ant Farm

    Artists of Songs I Currently Have but I'm Not Sure I'd Recommend (It's probably up to you):
    Machinae Supremacy - Yes, they're metal, but they're SID/chiptune-infused power metal
    Free Spirit - reminiscent of Bon Jovi
    John Parr
    Buckner & Garcia

    Artists of Songs I Currently Don't Have but I Might Consider and/or Probably Recommend:
    Less Than Jake
    Nerf Herder
    Parry Gripp
    brentalfloss
    Paul and Storm
    Godhead
    Taproot
    Stroke 9
    The New Pornographers


    If you find any of these artists interesting good or at least one of them, then we're good.

    I think you would really like both "Things That Make You Scream" and "Break Away" by Memory of a Melody. I'll try and edit this post later with a few more recommendations when I can look through all my songs.

    Good list by Aerrow101!

    Here's a list of things you may have heard before :)
    Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire
    John Parr - St. Elmo's Fire
    Jerry Naylor - That'll Be The Day
    Jerry Naylor - Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On
    Eiffel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee)
    Til All Are One - Stan Bush
    Going Under - Evanescence

    Some other good tunes;
    Ok Go - White Knuckles
    Melissa Otero - Angels & Demonos
    Eden's Curse - No Holy Man
    The Trews - Hope & Ruin
    Kaipa - In the Wake of Evolution (Awesome Prog song, almost 10mins long)
    Halcyon Way - Mouth Without A Head (It's down as metal, but worth a listen)
    Ghost Brigade - Into the Black Light (Again Metal, but also worth a listen)
    Scratch The Itch - Why Bother?
    Dance For The Dying - Kiffy Fight Song
    The Heist - DnA's Evolution
    Anything from Free Spirit & The Apples in Stereo, but TAiS do not have pro-drums :(

    There is plenty of others, just takes time to listen through them all :)

    Thanks, I haven't got these and yes after listening to the previews I recognize them!

    I got the other Stan Bush song, "The Touch" a while back because it was a free song on GHWT.
