Top 50 Bands on lastfm

Saw this while looking up the Good Clean Funs page. The 50 bands Ive listened to most recently.

1. Brand New
Back in 2003 I worked at a Less Than Jake gig in Aberdeen, on the street team for one of the support bands Allister. A week later, the street team people (Traffic Marketing) sent me Brand New's first album, Your Favorite Weapon as a thank you. I mostly remember listening to it on repeat on a school trip to Manchester/Alton Towers. Seen them twice since, once at King Tuts and once at the Carling Academy. Was meant to meet Jesse Lacey, the lead singer, after the King Tuts gig, but had to get the train back to Edinburgh and he called me instead which was nice :)

2. Jawbreaker.
Pretty much my favourite band at the moment. I think I got into them late last year, but more intensely the past couple months. I heard about them through an online punk cartoon strip Nothing Nice To Say by Mitch Clem, where one of the characters is obsessed with them,

3. Alexisonfire.
I always loved the song "This Could Be Anywhere In The World" when they played it out in the Garage Attic. I never thought much about who it was by, until I asked someone. But then didnt investigate much else. Until my friend Stacey, who I know through the band Allister's message board, had a spare ticket and asked me to go to the gig with her. She sent me all their songs and the rest is history.

4. Dashboard Confessional.
I think it may have been Pete who told me about Dashboard. Either him or the book I mentioned earlier. I barely listen to them anymore, but when I did it was constant.

5. Fall Out Boy.
Again, a Pete band. We were in some music shop buying albums, and I had no idea who they were and never took any notice of it. I must have eventually clicked and as much as people slag them and their fans off, I still love them.

6. Saves The Day.
I think everyone knows the song "At Your Funeral" that was on a Kerrang album. It was that book that made me check out other albums.

7. Jimmy Eat World.
Summer 05, I was in Aberdeen and picked up the Bleed American album for Matthew. I remember it was playing while we sat out back with his family. 

8. The Bouncing Souls.
I cant remember how I got into these guys. Maybe they were listed as a similar artist on lastfm. Possibly Mitch Clem
