Tool
System of a Down
Gorillaz
Tenacious D
Bloodhound Gang

I don't know if they're considered mainstream yet, but also:

Opeth
Iced Earth
Dimmu Borgir
Richard Cheese
They Might Be Giants
Weird Al Yankovic
The Aquabats

I list these because... I really don't know what mainstream is anymore. I don't have cable tv, I only listen to public radio, and I haven't been in highschool for a few years now. I just know that me and my friends all know who these bands are and listen to them often enough.

I like 'em. Good stuff. :p

Opeth, Dimmu, TMBG, and Weird Al are all pretty mainstream, at least for their scene;  the aquabats are almost; You won't see any of the high school kids with an aquabats shirt, but whatever.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I've never liked The Doors. But if I had to pick one thing that was wrong with them, it would be the fact that the guy from The Cult sings with them now.

Same here, though if I had to pick something wrong with them, it would have to be, no question, the organ solo in "Light My Fire", or rather, the entire song.

When I speak of the Doors, I am of course speaking of everything before Jim Morrison kicked the bucket. (I.E: LA Woman and before).



and their self titled is the best thing they ever did. rawk.

The Doors have some great songs, but alot of their stuff screams of adolescent poetry done over repetitive sixties rock music. "Light My Fire" is completely unable to hold my attention for any significant amount of time.

Except me = )! Actually, I know quite a few fellow highschoolers who listen to the 'Bats.

Anyways, on the subject of the Doors, all "Light My Fire" really needs is a 10x faster industrial remix with one of those programs where you type text and the computer speaks them for the lyrics.

Actually, I would be morbidly interested in how that came out. Just like I was curious enough to hear what Limp Bizkit's cover of Behind Blue Eyes sounded like.

...that may have been one of the worst decisions I have ever made. And I don't have much common sense in the first place.

If you want to hear how NOT to do it, get hold of Train's cover of Light My Fire. It was never one of my favourites anyway, but that permanently ruined it for me.

Man

It is so hard to make that song sound not the total antithesis of industrial.

I need to strip it down and go all Laibach on its ass with military drumming, I think.

Slow the actual music down to about half tempo, and kick it down into a minor chord.  Then add a heavy backbeat, somme effects and samples, and you're golden.

I suppose I like a lot of mainstream bands, because I don't really care whether a band is mainstream or not. I listen to what I like, really. Most of the bands I like now are just outside the mainstream, fairly obscure, or were popular a long time ago, but aren't anymore, really. However, I do enjoy System of a Down, The Mars Volta, and Radiohead, who as far as I know, are all fairly popular right now.
