1 year...Sputnik...we lauhed, we cried. We owned and we got owned. We found out what a large bundle of sticks we were. We found out how to make someone feel like a large bundle of sticks. We did our first track-by-track review, we used the term gluttural instead of guttural. We learned that growling is an artform and emo isn't a garbage genre. We learned that even elitists can over-hype garbage bands (Thrice, Underoath, Fear Before) but we also learned how to be an elitist and scoff at the views of the puny mainstream listeners. We still don't like Opeth as much as everyone else, or that much at all, but its okay. We feel cool because we liked DragonForce before Guitar Hero, but feel cooler because we hate them now. We know you can always have MOAR METUL. Sure I had great taste before sputnik...but now i have great taste and know bands from Sweden that have 13 fans and haven't released an actual cd yet. Sputnik rules and here are 20 bands that i came to love because of Sputnik.

|3||Between the Buried and Me|
|6||maudlin of the Well|
