FFDiscussion
It's been just over 3 years since FFD opened, and it's been a close knit community, one which we've all been able to share our problems together, talk freely and discuss any kind of topic that we wanted, from Final Fantasy to problems with school.

Unfortunately, the decision was made to archive the board while it still had some minimal activity, rather than let spammers come and take over, which I think we will all agree on. Although there was the fair share of drama, people leaving and not much activity, the fact that we managed to keep it going until now is a statement to say that we weren't going to let it go down without trying our best to keep it open.

So after 3 years, 50000 posts and over 1000 topics later, with one of the best and closest communities on the web, FFDiscussion has closed on the 1st December 2010

Alright, here's the lowdown on what I'm looking for:

I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing when it comes to music.

So far, I've found myself drawn to random songs that I've heard here and there, and they mostly tend to be punk-rock or along that line, like Green Day, Fall Out Boy, etc...

Can anyone suggest any other bands like this? Or maybe just anything you think may interest me. I want to be a rounded individual.

Also, no screamo or really hardcore rock, please. The lyrics are just as important as the instrumentals, and I'd rather be able to hear the lyrics.

Incubus(1), The Killers(2), and Red Hot Chili Peppers(3) are some.

Like Anna Molly(1), When You Were Young(2), and Dani California(3).

Look up a song called "Let the Drummer Kick"

I've taking a liking to that song.

Please ignore what Tif said about Red Hot Chili Peppers... No offense to her, or the band, but Dani California just isn't anywhere near what they really are. It's just turned into a big pop hit because Rock Band brought it back. If you want the "real" Red Hot Chili Peppers experience so to speak, check out the albums "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" "Mothers Milk" and "Californication." Stadium Arcadium wasn't a bad album, it's just that it was a tamed version of Californication.

Though if you want really good lyrics and instrumentals, just listen to anything by Rush. Seriously, their music is incredibly orchestrated and just really really really well written to put it simply. Then Neil Peart writes incredible lyrics. He's such a good writer that he's even become a best selling author (though his main job is drumming and writing lyrics for Rush).

Linkin Park: In the end, Leave out all the rest
Hellogoodbye: Here in your arms
Boy sets fire: Requiem (I love this one ^^Wink
Jordin Sparks: Tatto

You can try Nickelback too they have many nice songs. One Republic is nice too or Savage garden ^_^

The rest I hear too is more RNB so I don't think you will like it lol

Well I would support Mia's choice about One Republic and Linkin Park and with Nickelback as well although One Republic and Nickelback are slightly different from Fall Out Boys and Green Day.
Anyway I would suggest something more like AFI December Underground or SUM 41 whichever album you choose, they are something more alike Green Day and Fall Out Boys.
But I would recomend you to visit last.fm and search for band you like on your own for you can listen to parts of some songs and well you can see who are similar artists so I would recommend that above all.

Well you can listen to whole songs and albums if you have an account but I'm saying if you don't cause as I see lately they had some problems with creating new accounts or so I've been told.

If you look up AFI and like them, I also recommend these cds by them:
Sing The Sorrow (he screams in one whole song, but no screaming after that!)
The Art Of Drowning
Black Sails in the Sunset
Answer That and Stay Fashionable (this is, according to other AFI fans, a punk rock album. It's their first, and really good)

AFI is my favourite band, and they have been for 5 years now, so I know quite a bit about them! Decemberunderground, however, is nothing like their other albums.

You taste in music is just like mine! Hahaha.

Blue October is good, (Into the Ocean and Hate Me are their two most popular, but I like the unplayed things like X Amount of Words).

The Used is also amazing.(Smother Me, Liar Liar((Burn in HEll)), Blue and Yellow) They're kinda rocky, but the lyrics are amazing and you can hear most of them.

Nickelback's Dark Horse album is my current favorite. (Just to Get High, Gotta be Somebody)
And Dream Theatre's Panic Attack.
