    Maybe eclectic isn't really the word, but maybe just non-mainstream stuff. There's lots of good (of course that's subjective) stuff out there that I've heard over the years, most of it I can't even remember now. Here's just a few rock bands I like that are not very mainstream.

    Alien Ant Farm
    Deadsy
    Sevendust
    Dark New Day
    30 Seconds To Mars
    Coheed and Cambria
    Flyleaf

    Anyone got some favs they'd recommend?

    If you like 30 Seconds to Mars, check out Strata. They've got a new one coming out soon. http://www.myspace.com/strata
    Others you might enjoy would be:
    The Used
    Hopesfall
    Underoath
    Thrice
    Muse

    If you like any of those I'll give you plenty more.

    This might appeal to only me (old guy alert!), but I used to catch guitarist Kevin Breit every weekend at a club that was just down the street from my place. He still plays there all of the time... but I moved. He's usually a jazz session player, but he teamed up with Cuban percussionist Cyro Baptista to form the group Supergenerous. Their self titled debut CD was well received by critics but I think it sold like 58 copies... 59 if you include mine. I've had it for years and I still listen to it all of the time.

    Here's some You Tubage of Kevin and Cyro live...

    Honestly, those bands aren't that far out of the mainstream - fairly well known post-numetal stuff..

    Since the request is for eclectic choices I'll throw out some bands I like that are coming from different "places" musically..

    TURBONEGRO: These guys are Rock legends in some circles. Straight up anthemic guitar rock from Norway, but with a sick twist. Think The Stooges, classic Alice Cooper etc, updated with a more recent Rawk vibe ala Supersuckers, Nashville ***** etc.. Throw in outrageous subject matter and you have Turbo.. Where's my sailor hat?

    SHE WANTS REVENGE: I heard their tune "Tear You Apart" on XM's Fred a few times and just had to get the CD.. Reminds me of maybe Skinny Puppy at times but more upbeat and obviously for the dance crowd but the music and lyrics are way cooler than anything that scene usually puts out.. The singer is great and the spooky ambient guitar/synth stuff works perfectly..

    THE OLD 97's:
    Their first coupla records are really great shuffle-beat high octane country-alt-rock stuff. Blazing twang Texas guitar, brilliant vox/lyrics, Can't get enough of their early stuff..

    HANK 3:
    Straight To Hell is hands down the best slab of 06. Pissed off old school Country recorded on a 4 track in East Nashville. Songs about Jesco the Dancin' Outlaw, raggin the piss out of Kid Rock, Drinkin with George Jones, OD'ing on pills. Yeah he's Hank Jr's son but he belts it out more like his grandad..

    THE SUPERSUCKERS: Twin guitar Goldtop Les Paul assault. Fun, evil stuff. The Suckers bring the rock no doubt..



    PM me an address and I'll send you the last Creeping Cruds CD.. We got some outstanding reviews: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=3386855&MyToken=41990f61-17d5-48d1-af1e-5ec43654ecabML

    See if Morphine is your thing.

    There are some videos up on youtube.

    Drum, sax, and bass, with vocals.

    They called themselves "low rock" but it was a kind of psychedelic jazz in a way.

    Yeah Morphine was a great unique band.. Very sad that Mark Sandman died onstage...
