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.
Now if you want to try something new, I have plenty of great bands to suggest.
(In no particular orders..)
Modern Rock (this is very broad):
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Thirty Seconds To Mars
Taking Back SUnday
Three Days Grace
Bullet For My Valentine
The Mars Volta
Black Label Society
A Perfect Circle
No for rap, I personally enjoy old school rap (Tupac) rather than modern rap (Lil Wayne.):
The Notorious B.I.G.
Big Daddy Kane
I know I am forgetting a lot of great bands but some that I have listed are very well deserved to be given a shot.
NOW you say you want more hidden music...
Listen to these less known bands which are great:
Neutral Milk Hotel
The Apples In Stereo
The Hush Sound
