Soo, i've been listening to my favorite songs over and over again, and eventually i got bored.
Can't actually talk to my real life friends because their taste in music is much different than me, they listen to Pop, Rap, Kpop, Justin Bieber, or whatever. Not that i hate Pop or whatever, it just that i mostly didn't enjoy a Pop songs.

So i need you guys to recommend me band/singer to listen to. I'm not good at identifying what genre of my kind of music i like, so i just throwing out some name of my most favorite band/singer, and here it is.

Paramore
Avenged Sevenfold
Breaking Benjamin
Disturbed
System of A Down
Jimmy Eat World
Foo Fighter
All American Reject
Audioslave
30 Second to Mars
Bullet for my Valentine ( well, just some of their song is good)
Coldplay
Papa Roach
Oasis
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

So, please recommend me some music with the same kind of genre, or style, or beat, or whatever.
I just need to hear a new songs entering into my ears and projecting awesomeness into my brain. icon14.gif

Just to say considering that list and your lack of stigma against mainstream music, you might enjoy My Chemical Romance, I never thought I'd be reccomending them, but they're actually quite good mostly considering Gerard Way is an amazing front-man. The Black Parade is a damn good album, and Danger Days is god damned incredible and a really great example of how a band can mature.

Also, a few more from my library, all of pretty widely varying styles of rock:

Weezer
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Sea Wolf
Metric
The White Stripes
Vampire Weekend
Maximo Park
Minus The Bear
This Town Needs Guns
Ben Folds
Death Cab For Cutie
Meg and Dia
Portugal, The Man

If you like Oasis, you might like Blur, pretty much the same but Blur don't usually have the fake American accent. And often aren't as cheesy as Oasis.

Check out 36 Crazyfists. I used to be stuck in the same genre as you and they were my first step to heavier sh*t. They are really unbelievable

Placebo, Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park, Sum 41, Yellowcard, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails and MCR are some "emo punk" bands you could like. If you're up for some harder music, try Bring Me The Horizon, Anthrax, Lamb Of God, As I Lay Dying and All That Remains.

I've updated the list above, and keep it simple on what kind of band i'm really into, and what isn't.

@Cheat : Cool. Added to list.
@Ccrogers : Black Eyed Peas suck ( no offense), some of dubstep and techno are cool, but that's not what i'm after. Paramore is awesome. Don't know about Aaliyah and TLC. I'll try it.
@Waste : I ain't afraid of anything. I'll try it.

Kudos for trying out all the suggestions icon14.gif

A lot of what I would have suggested has already been mentioned so I'll just name a few that I can think of right now:

Nico Vega
Jeff Buckley
Adema
Imagine Dragons
Frank Turner
The Weeknd
Low
The XX
Passion Pit
Dirty Heads

I think that's enough for now, don't want to bog you down, so I hope you enjoy most of them. I've tried to go for some varied tastes that branch off of what you like.

@ The-King: It's odd that you mentioned The Black Parade. Like yourself, I never really thought I'd recommend it to anyone but I found myself doing that just the other day with someone in work. It took me a while to find merit in some songs, but now that I have I definitely agree that it's a pretty damn good album.

Well, judging by the list of bands you've listened to and the current list you've been assembling, here's a few recommendations:

The Verve (Bittersweet symphony, Lucky man)
The Smashing Pumpkins (1979, Disarm) Not a huge Smashing pumpkins fan, but I really like those two songs.
The Sheepdogs (I don't know, feeling good) New band, play a more 70's style of rock though. You might like it.
The offspring (Self esteem, Original prankster)
The Decemberists (Down by the water) I really like this tune.
Stereophonics (Maybe tomorrow) Heard this song in a movie and had to find it.
Spacehog (In the meantime, The last dictator, Zeroes) 3 good tunes.
Radiohead (Karma police) Didn't like this song at first, but it really grew on me. Now one of my favourites.
Live (I alone, Lightning crashes)
Greenday (Boulevard of Broken dreams, Holiday, Jesus of Suburbia, When I come around)
Collective soul (December, Shine, The world I know)
Billy Talent (Devil in a midnight mass, Rusted from the rain, Try honesty)
3 doors down (Kryptonite, be like that)

So I hope that helps a bit. Keep us posted. I'd also recommend you check out more of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. That's one of my top bands.
