So I have been living in Florida almost two years after moving from the rmusical wasteland that is Maine. To honor this, I have decided to make a top r20 of favorite Florida artists and bands
Thugs Are Us
Baby Cuz I'm A Thug
I Know A Girl Who Develops Crime Scene Photos
Intense grindcore band who broke up before reaching their full potential
There is something really fun about the poppy riffs
With Roy Khan, these guys created a string of unbelievable power metal albums. One of
the few power metal bands that is recommended for everyone
A seminal and excellent grind core group.
|15|| ||Matchbox 20|
Yourself Or Someone Like You
Band could write some fucking radio rock songs.
A band more often overshadowed by the shenanigans of Glen Benton, they are still one
of the best known metal bands of all time, with multiple classics of the genre.
Slowly We Rot
A Florida DM band? No way! One of the first big selling Death Metal bands, helping
pave the way for many other greats of the genre.
|12||Less Than Jake|
A punk band that has persevered with surprising consistency while also being
torchbearers for 90s punk
Full Moon Fever
An artist that I never appreciated until recently, he is considered a legend for a reason.
Define The Great Line
A band that aged like fine wine during their tenure, hitting a peak with DTGL and
keeping that quality until their death. They are missed.
Yet another in a huge list of fantastic Florida DM bands. Having released two
unbelievable full lengths, they have cemented their place among the greatest metal
That Within Blood Ill-Tempered
One of the landmark bands of their genre. Whenever you think they're finally dead for
good, they release an album that knocks you on your ass.
Another band that hit me at the right time. A band that truly grew alongside me.
One of the best technical bands to ever exist, and after 17 years away, has returned with
Altars Of Madness
Searching For A Former Clarity
Laura Jane Grace has created some of my absolute favorite songs, and is an inspiration
to everyone who feels trapped within their own body.
|3||Poison The Well|
You Come Before You
Poison The Well is one of those bands that struck me at the perfect time, and were
incredibly consistent throughout their career. I miss them so much.
|2||Hot Water Music|
Maybe my favorite punk band of all time, Chuck Ragan (aka punk Jesus) and company
have never released an album I didn't like.
Of course this was going to be number one. One of the best bands of all time, true
