Answer on What are some really good bands/singers/rappers?

Since you like The Killers you might like: Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol, The Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs, *MGMT, & Coldplay.

Popular bands similar to Goot are: Mercy Mercedes, The Maine, Valencia, & Mayday Parade.

Hey Monday can relate to these well known bands: Paramore, *Forever The Sickest Kids, All Time Low, The Academy Is..., Sing It Loud, The Cab, The Summer Set, Cute Is What We Aim For, There For Tomorrow, nevershoutnever!, etc.

If you like Jacks Mannequin give these bands a shot: Augustana, Something Corporate, *The Format, Forgive Durden, The Morning Light, & The Hush Sound.

Try Big L, Atmosphere, & Dead Prez since you like Immortal Technique.

Kid Kudi and Asher Roth are closely related to Drake.

Some R&B stuff similar to Day26 and NeYo might be Mario, LLoyd, Danity Kane, Trey Songz, Ray J, & The Dream.

*the star next to a band is one my personal favorite recommendations.
