I might get shit for Shinedown and Three Days Grace because of how mainstream they are.

First of all, there are a bunch of bands mentioned here that really shouldn't be, because many metal fans either like them straight up, or at least wouldn't give anybody shit about liking them...Ravenheart or someone else mentioned Lynyrd Skynrd, I think - I saw a bunch of hard rock legends mentioned such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, Rush, etc. - ya know, stuff like that. Nobody's giving you shit about those - they're just "non-metal" bands you like, but they don't really fit this thread. The only reason I make this clarification is not to give anybody grief for posting those band names, but because the next list of bands I'm going to post don't fit into that category. You'll see what I mean in a second...just bear with me.

So, I'm taking a different approach to this thread, just to try and make for an interesting post. If it doesn't work out that way...oh well, I tried.

Bands who have been posted in this thread so far, that if anybody gives you shit for listening to them, let me know and I will kick their ass and let you watch for free:
Collective Soul
Muse
Live
Depeche Mode
The White Stripes
U2
NWA
Bob Marley
Bela Fleck
Secret Chiefs 3
STS9
Les Claypool (or any of his numerous incarnations)
The Prodigy
Filter
Nine Inch Nails
Public Enemy

Maybe experimental, indie pop music at that - but it's pop music. Now I'm not saying pop music is necessarily a bad thing, but I can't stand people who try to pass it off for something it's not - and I hate that with any kind of music trying to be passed for anything else that it's not.

And yeah, I just don't get what people are talking about when they say they're "so heavy" - I mean, yeah, I've heard songs with riffs and heavy distorted guitars - but it still didn't really change the big picture for me.

Oh yeah, and I've spent so much time telling people that frankly I don't hear a lot of difference between Muse and bands like Coldplay and The Killers, and they all treated me like I was fucking crazy, so I looked at their last.fm page.
Artists similar to Muse:

Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Coldplay, Radiohead, 30 Seconds to Mars, Keane, and The Arctic Monkeys.

Yes, but I'm the one who's crazy.
Well said!

I fucking HATE Muse as well. Overrated and have no business being in the category with anything Rock, Metal, or Progressive.

Not sure how Muse isn't even "rock." Feel free to say they aren't metal or prog, because they're not. But they're definitely rock...or else I'm not totally sure what rock is.
