Guns N Roses
yea you're right, I made that mistake too.
Guns N’ Roses
Alice in Chains
Stone Temple Pilots
Which Powderfinger album would you recommend? Huge fan of The Church (and thus Ian Haug).
To me, Double Allergic through to Odyssey number five are quite brilliant.
Double Allergic has a somewhat more indie-rock thing going on.
sample songs for the flavour -
Pick You Up
Internationalist is a little more polished, but not in a bad way

The Day You Come
Odyssey number five is a little more polished again, but also a little left of centre

My Kind Of Scene
Like A Dog
I like all those, but Odyssey number 5 was pretty special in my opinion. Some folks would be all about one of the other two, depends on your musical positioning to a degree.
If you ended up liking all of those, it would be hard to go wrong with any of them. BUT the debut Parables For Wooden Ears, although pretty good, sounds like a band trying to be part of the US semi-grunge scene, and I think it is quite forgettable... from then on they developed their own thing thankfully, that is much better than the debut.
Couple of others that I think deserve mention...
True, but both of those albums were released in 1979.
Thing is, I'd argue that Simple Minds' real success and impact was in the 80's, and beyond. Sure, their debut sold a bit in the U.K., and then not much else until their third album in 1980. Then Sons And Fascination was the release in '81 that essentially changed everything.
+ Nada Surf
Really? I thought they were unquestionably a '70s band. Their first 3 were '70s, with the debut and LC being their most famous works.
People may say the '60s and early '70s are the golden era for them but for me that shifts a decade forward to the '70s and '80s, being a big fan of hard rock and heavy metal.
Iron Maiden (first and foremost)
Judas Priest (crossover from the '70s)
Guns N' Roses
Van Halen (crossover from '70s)
Rush (crossover from '70s)
I could go on but those are just some that popped into my head.
Ah ! Ok, thanks for the info
Saga ? Saga ? Yes
1. Son Volt
Thanks! I read the title as post-1980s, and not post-1980.
Yep, I can go R.E.M. now, too!

I never think when people use the word "bands" that they literally mean only bands unless they specify that. In my experience on music boards over the years, people tend to use "bands" interchangeably with "artists," "musical acts," etc.
Thanks! I'll listen to samples of their various albums asap.
