    Mr. Drinky, you have great taste in music. I love Chuck Ragan; I've seen his band Hot Water Music over 20 times, including the time I flew to Florida to see their first reunion show back in 2008. I've also seen Chuck Ragan solo countless times. I used to see him all the time when he and his wife lived in LA and he was just getting the solo stuff going.

    Lots of intersting stuff here...my Amazon music wishlist just got bigger.

    Here are some of my favorite underappreciated/obscure songs/bands.

    Aquabats...just a bunch of goofy colleges guys having a lot of fun making ska-fusion music...one of their classics:


    The Violent Femmes seem to be a rather underrated group, particularly for their work after the debut album. Here is a nice satrical piece from their sophmore effort, with video from a film school project:


    Not sure what category this guy falls in...but he's having a lot of fun making music:


    Can't miss Judge Dread...the first non-Jamaican to have a reggae hit in Jamaica...and the most banned musical artist of all time...warning: HIGHLY suggestive lyrics:


    A bit of Leonard Nimoy speaking the Desiderata:


    A bit of pre-nerdcore...M.C. Hawking doing "Entropy":


    A bit of sarcastic ska fusion from the Bay Area:


    Of course there is the j-Pop surf music fusion of the 5, 6, 7, 8's...made famous by the Kill Bill scene with the Crazy 88's:


    Apocalyptica...the chello quartet that covers metal songs, here is Metallica's Fade To Black:


    Which of course brings up Iron Horse...bluegrass cover band...here is their version of Fade To Black:


    The Asteroids Galaxy Tour...kind of euro-pop? This particular song came to my attention a Heineken commercial:


    This is, to me at least, techno type music...one of the few that I like:


    The Breeders are another band that had a couple of big hits but seem to be generally underrated, here's a nice track from their Title TK album:


    One of the best of the "southern rapp" genre, Bubba Sparxxx:


    Another under appreciated band, Cake, from their debut album:


    The absolutely brilliant combo of Shakti and John Mclaughlin doing a fusion of acoutic jazz and traditional Indian classical music:


    One of the founders of ska, Desmon Dekker:


    I'm going to stop scanning my collection now...

    If you enjoy any of these, I probably have more like it...
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
