Yeah, that would be them. Mahadeva, Let There Be Light, and Kabalah are some of their bigger songs. Though, I like almost all of them. I have 80 of their songs right now, most of which I got off MP3.com
Raymond Wave and DJ Mary-Jane are also really good... but again, mention those names in a room...
Well if it's time to pimp the underground, allow me to throw out some of what I asked for this year for Xmas, so others may benefit
Godspeed You Black Emperor - any of their albums Silver Mt. Zion... - "Born Into Trouble..." Robbie Fulks - "Couples In Trouble" New Pornographers - "Mass Romantic" Kelly Hogan - "Because It Feel Good"
I'll give a shoutout to Lostprophets here, who's debut album has just been released in the States.
Hundred Reasons coming your way next, I believe. Another unbelievably kick-ASS British band. Their live shows are excellent. I'm not sure how they'll do in arenas, but they rule in the intimate club shows...
Couple days ago I was in my car, driving about a mile and so I left my CD's behind. Stupidly, I turned on the radio and heard some syndicated program. It was hosted by Carson Daly and he started talking about Bad Religion. I think my head exploded.
Well, Annihilator was not big in N. America but were huge in Europe. They were Canada's answer to Metallica and they did well. I was actually engaged to the original bass player's niece last year but that is a different story. A couple of songs that are must listens are Alice in Hell, Phantasmagoria, Fantastic Things (which is a super rare track) and Phoenix Rising.

Weee! Time to make another plug! Well...more of an extention of the last plug. Now, it's a plug for Frou Frou. Frou Frou is Imogen Heap teaming up with Guy Sigsworth. I have no idea who Guy Sigsworth is, and, as of right now, they don't have any full length songs, just 2 samples, one playing on their front page at http://www.froufrou.net/ and the other one at http://lancaster.virtuetv.com/clients/virtuetv/outsideline/froufrou/letgo1min.wma
But, despite that, I'm still hyped for it, because it's a new Imogen Heap album! April 23rd bay-bee!
Found this on the Globe and Mail's website, and thought I'd share since people here seem to like Weird Al. The best part comes courtesy the kid from Columbus. I think the writer of the article missed a hilarious joke. http://www.theglobeandmail.
