This isn’t a list of the most underground groups I could think of or bands that have never experienced any level of success. Many of the songs I listed have been radio and/or commercial hits, but most people don’t seem to recognize them anymore. So I wrote this list to bring attention to some great acts, new and old, that I feel deserve a little more of the spotlight. Hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone! I'm a philosophy student at Fairhaven College in Western Washington. My musical interests range all across the board, particularly indie, punk and pop. I've also spent a lot of time writing my own songs and playing in bands. I'm not a huge fan of critiquing music because after all, who are any of us to judge someone else's creation? But I love sharing music and hopefully you'll enjoy my unique perspective here at LifeAfterNirvana. View all posts by tcapps123
