Can you guys point out some commercial rock sounding bands, preferably melodic, in the vein of early 90's radio rock, im looking for bands that put out solid complete albums, full of production, and catchy choruses, along the lines of Firehouse S\T, Blue Tears. Von Groove, that kind of shit, just list anything that comes to mind, I will go through and weed out what ive heard, and check out what I have not, keep in mind most of the more well known stuff I do have, or have heard, im looking for shit that flew under my radar, that I will kick myself if I never get to hear, hey thanks, and merry christmas.

Wall of Silence. You probably have it, but I had to say it. Easily one of my all-time favourites.

The Creek

 

Hmmm, I don't believe I know these guys. Might have to check it out.

 

Some great recommendations here. A couple I don't think have been covered:

 

Attraction - 'Get up n' shake'

Rockarma - 'Bring it'

Hotshot - s/t

Sage, Asylum Suite, are new to me, I hadn't ever heard that Mitch Malloy song, but im very curious how I missed it, bands im looking for comparatively are ones like the first 5 listed, those are all along the types im looking for, with Melidian almost being one of the bands I would've used as an example, so is Saints & Sinners, are there any albums like these that might have fallen from my sight? do you all kind of understand what im getting at? I know all our interpretation of music is different, like the fact I like all the bands I hadn't heard of that have been posted on here, being the ones I named, id never heard Sage, Or Asylum Suite, and am now glad I know of them, but im looking for stuff with huge production, lots and lots of backing vocals, and songs that sound like they were written for the radio, I know most bands like these don't go undiscovered very often, cause if something is that good, eventually it's going to make it's way around, and the albums ive listed examples of are few and far between, and are special, at least thats how I view it, I will make a list of example bands, and you guys tell me if you can see all the bands I list and draw comparisons to every band I list, and tell me if you can make out the pattern im getting at, or tell me if the bands I list have nothing in common with each other, and i must be high on crack, because if you can see the comparisons then you will be able to tell what im getting at, and maybe that can narrow it down for you, better yet, if you do see comparisons, maybe you guys can point me to what it is that is alike, and what it is im looking for, thus making it easier for me because I cant describe what it is im trying to explain, and to find. sheesh, im a blabbering idiot arent I? help if you can, but Id really like your feedback, not that what you all have posted isnt something im interested in, because I actually am very happy to have the heads up on those 2 new bands, but just read y examples, thanks.

 

Blue Tears ST

Firehouse ST

Von Groove ST

Melidian - Lost In The Wild

Saints & Sinners ST

Y&T - Contagious

Sic Vikki - Kiss Me In French

 

Okay, these are perfect examples of the sound im talking about, do any of you see the comparisons in every single one of these albums??? and if so, what is it? if you do not see any comparisons in any of these albums, please also tell me that, so I can quit confusing people, ok

Storm The Gate is a great album - a few fillers but also some gem like mhr as well.

Exactly like Shark Island, Jesse Strange(though I wasn't impressed from start to finish) Babylon AD debut kicked ass, so are there any bands like these who either are absolutely obscure for some reason, that were released in the early 90's, or whom are recent but have kept or play that 90's style and flew not only underneath the radar, but perhaps missed the radar all together? cause of the radio station that played that stuff in Salt Lake in the early 90's not only did I stay up on that type of music, I also was exposed to many many bands who played it, but being I heard it every day, did not realize just how many people who didn't listen to KBER never got a chance to hear many of these kind of bands, and in turn, found out just how unknown the bands were, so I am looking for these kinds of bands or albums, that may have slipped by me, and I understand that there might not be many, but Ive learned when you strike a good album from this time period, or sound, it's generally a fucking kick ass album all the way through, so I'm just trying to see if theres something I totally missed, and see the bands that were just listed recently are all pretty mainstream bands cause as far as KBER went, those were bands that basically made up that stations rotation, along with the usual Warrant, White Lion, Motley Crue, you know your basic bands everyone heard, bands like Shark Island(Paris Calling) Dirty Rythem (I Can Feel The Fire)Mozart (Japan Is Calling) Hittman (Partners In Crime) Baton Rouge (Walks Like A Women, Price Of Love) Eyes (Calling All Girls) Syre (Flaunt It) American Angel (How Can I Miss You) these are all songs that lived on that radio station for years, and there were probably hundreds of bands, that would get their new single played, and I'd hear it once or twice, then it would vanish and I'd never hear of the band again i.e. Triangle (Chain The American Heart) Collision (Love Not War) Heavens Edge (Find Another Way) Blue Blud (I Cant Wait) Shy England (Give It All You Got) Marchello (Every Man's Lover) Valentine (Running On Luck) So as you can see, theres a list of examples here of things I heard on that radio station, looking back it was truly heaven, and I never realized just how good I had it at the time, and I now understand that people had Z-Rock which was more metal based, but really there weren't all that many radio stations that covered so many of these kinds of bands, at such a rapid rate, in the country, but enough explaining, just post what you got, and when I see something I haven't heard, I will snag it, and try to find it, I am jonesing for this kind of music, you know as much shit as that station played, I never heard Jaded Heart on there, nor did I ever hear Harem Scarem, which stumps me, they played Voivod and Wrathchild America, but somehow left out what I consider to be 2 of the greatest bands to ever play this type of music? puzzling. but I cant really list what Ive heard and not heard, so now you get the drift, just post whatever you know to be this kind of music, I am more then sure something has gotten past me, and we cant have that happen.

I don't know if you can get more "under the radar" than DC Drive. I doubt anyone outside of Michigan has heard of them. Great CD from 1993.

Yeah, I downloaded the album from the Motor City Rock website, but the sound quality isn't so great. Very groovy stuff. I need to track down a copy.
