The etc is as follows;

3 doors down, Arctic Monkeys, Clap your hands say yeah, Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Embrace, MCR, New Young Pony Club, Paramore. That's about it.

I'm mainly into alternative Indie stuff though. They usually sound refreshing and different unlike the usually somewhat genre-standardized music coming from major labels. Which was the reason I posted here.

Damn, I'm having difficulties explaining what I like. IMO, good songs are
-Red Flag (Billy Talent) with its catchy beat and clear vocals
-Coldplay (What if) slow at parts but exudes an engulfing, meaningful feel
-The Killers (Spaceman) refreshing, emotional
-RHCP (Otherside) Bass owns.
-Say Anything (Yellow Cat / Red Cat)

Within the genres mentioned, anything slow, repititive/boring is out.

Hope you are having a clearer idea... :/

Well since you're an indie pop sort of person:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Morrissey
The Smiths
Beirut
Women
Elliot Smith
The Shins
Ratatat
Phoenix

And just a a recommendation, get a last.fm account and just listen to what you have. Listen enough and last.fm will generate recommendations based on your music taste.

Getting bored of listening to the same songs over and over again and have for the past few weeks been searching for groups from the same genre but to not much success.

No offence to fans, but some are too slow and soft (RA RA RIOT, Cold War Kids) and some are boring (Pixies). Billy Talent and Breaking Benjamin have been the only revelations.

Any suggestions from my fellow music lovers?
try star****er!

I think of myself more as a rock rather than pop person. aha. Great suggestion for the last.fm account btw, I just made one.

I strongly recommend that you do. They are really good. They have one album already out and I believe a new one is coming out this year. The one that is already out is amazing.

I have to do a presentation on depression in Psychology and the teacher is allowing me to play music that is depressing. Any ideas? It has to sound depressing. It can't be the kind of sadcore where it has an upbeat sound but has depressing lyrics. It'd have to be the kind where it strikes you as depressing once you hear it. Well?

Tom Waits can be pretty fuckin' depressing. Opeth's Damnation is a pretty sad album, too. I'm trying to think of specific songs ...

Mozart's Lacramosa (sp?) if you're going for the classical bit as well.
