I've got an iTunes gift card. And I don't know what to get with it. I've tried taking suggestions,
but here's my problem. I like certain bands. Not necessarily certain genres. So when I say I like this band, and someone says I would like that band because if it, I often don't.

My top 5 (in no particular order):

Get Set Go
Reggie & The Full Effect
Oingo Boingo
The Dresden Dolls
Ben Folds (& Ben Folds five)

See, with the exception of The Dresden Dolls and Ben Folds both being piano rock, none of those have anything to do with the other. Shoot, I don't even know what genre I'd assign to Get Set Go...

A band can't just be Rock, or Punk, or Electronic or whatever for me to like them. They have to grab my ears and swing me around the room a little. I haven't figured out just what it is about these five bands in particular that did this for me.

I just want some rad new music. Is that too much to ask?

That is all.

Modest Mouse
Brand New
Bright Eyes
Alkaline Trio
The Appleseed Cast
Arcade Fire
Band of Horses
Built To Spill
Pedro The Lion...

Start checking out some of that, or I can give you some. They are all very different, so it's not just a genre.

Crap...I thought of three good ones, now you come along with all this magical stuff. I need more than 15 bucks...

I love Alkaline Trio and have been meaning to start on Pedro The Lion and Arcade Fire...
