Okay I don't know who has ever used this but it is really cool and has helped me discover many new bands that I like. This will also eliminate the "Can you give me some similar bands" threads. It is really cool pretty self explanitory you just type in a band you like and they will give you like a song by them and start playing music that is like them. I have used stuff like this before but this one is really good.

http://www.pandora.com/

Just go there.

Also I forgot you have to register in a little while but its free and easy to do. You can also only skip a certain amount of songs an hour.

I can see some people don't like to use it so you can also use this thread to find similar bands. Post a band and then people will try and give you similar bands...I'm sick of all the stupid threads made about finding other bands.

This is actually a pretty good thing. My friend showed it to me a while back.

BUMP
Because people are dumb and make threads asking for similar bands.

That's a good idea, unfortunately the system doesn't always work. I used Taking Back Sunday as a band, and it gave me something like Minor Threat because of Minor Key Tonality. It's a good idea, just not put into action very well.

Well you can go on the bottom where it says "Guide Us" and say that that wasn't the kind of music you were looking for and they will play different stuff.

Lol. I said that in the pit a while back, and a couple of other people said that.

Well yeah I did that, but it just kept getting farther and farther off.

I had a mess around on there a while ago. I didn't like the fact that you have to make up a zipcode if you're not American - that's pretty dumb. But yes, there were some good suggestions that came up, but some daft ones as well. I discovered Lucky Boys Confusion through this, on my Allister station. Good stuff.

Hey guys, this is awesome, good find dude, i'm gonna be playing on this all ngiht :)

EDIT - The only beef i have with this is that it doesn't recognise that many artists, i prefer the last.fm player.

I don't like the site. Either the bands they suggest have nothing to do with the band I'm searching for, the band sucks, or I've already heard of them

For anyone with a decent knowledge of music, this site is not worth using. For every decent suggestion, you have to wade through about ten horrible ones.

Sometimes it's just silly. I was searching for other acoustic bands like Spill Canvas and it gave me...taproot.

It would be better if you could search by certain criteria, instead of only being able to search by band.

Searching for Wilhelm Scream is gave me...Slipknot and System Of A Down. Oh god, now I remember why I hate this thing.

That's quite amusing.

NEVER!!!

My name reflects who I am, where I'm going, and what I'll do when i get there.

And it makes about as much sence as that sentence did.

Pandora is alright. It'll give you some bands that have nothing to do with what your looking for. For example I typed in Circa Survive and it gave me Audioslave and Staind. Also, it can't search some bands such as The Fall of Troy, Circle Takes The Square, ect. But I foind this band I like a lot called Thunderbirds Are Now!

IMO this thing works pretty good. Sure, it might come up with a band your not exactly looking for, but if it does, just skip to the next song, I found these bands by using it:

Swift
Embrace the End
Life in Pictures
Stretch Armstrong
A Love Ends Suicide
Skys Of Fire
Over it
Hopesfall
The Red Chord
The Confession

Props on finding it.

Pandora can be frustrating at first, it takes a lot of effort to make good stations. You really just have to give it feedback for almost every song it plays at first.
