Default Music recommendations please!

Hi, I am a rabid Foo Fighter fan, and also like Nirvana. I've been trying to get into other music, but it's very difficult as most other stuff sucks. Some bands I've tried recently, and hated, include:

-The Pixies
-Sonic Youth
-Pearl Jam
-Radiohead
-Led Zeppelin
-KISS
-Alice In Chains
-Soundgarden
-Stone Temple Pilots
-Dinosaur Jr.
-Mudhoney
-Fu Manchu
-Metallica

There's bound to be others that I'm forgetting, but this should give you some idea. Basically I'm dying for some hot new music to listen to, but the more and more I try, the more I get discouraged and start to think "Is there ANYTHING out there that I'll like?"

Basically if any of you good people could give me some suggestions of new music to try I'd greatly appreciate it. It can be "grungy" or not, but please keep in mind what I like (which is obviously very limited!) and what I do not (based on the above list).

Thanks for any help!


P.S. What does my man Dave Grohl see in Lemmy Kilmister?!? Man that Lemmy has an AWFUL voice! Damn!!!

I'm glad that you hated a lot of those bands *coughledzeppelincough* and am a little dissapointed you hated some others. :[

Anyway:

www.myspace.com/circletakesthesquare
www.purevolume.com/snakesstrikefirst
www.myspace.com/hotcross
Immortal Tecnique
www.myspace.com/thefalloftroy
www.myspace.com/kenotia

If that isn't your style try:

Cat Power
Neutral Milk Hotel
Belle and Sebastian
Bright Eyes
Animal Collective
The Smiths
The Go Team
Sigur Ros
Explosions in the Sky
The Arcade Fire
Bob Dylan
The Blood Brothers
Broken Social Scene
The Decemberists
Deerhoof
Devandra Banhart

All great musicians.

You like the Foo's and Nirvana but hated PJ, AIC and Soundgarden?

Strange.

Give the Meat Puppets and Screaming Trees a go for starters. Tried Guns n Roses, other then their hits? What about ACDC? Though hating Lemmy's voice will probably be an indication of whether you'd like these guys or not.

Most people who like the Foo Fighters love Mr. Bungle and Fantomas
