Intellectual Music

This list is for music that has a genuine purpose. Something that love was clearly put into and that has a meaning bigger than just music. Something you have to truly think about to fully comprehend.
1Whitehouse
Mummy and Daddy


The kings of underrated, these guys were legends from the beginning. They just never got the proper attention they deserved. Listen if you must, but if you don't like Power Electronics you'll be dissapointed. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xKdKaAjw-o
2Tool
Undertow


An amazing debut from an equally amazing group. These guys define genius and everything they put out never ceases to amaze me. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klOnDr9Xrvc
3La Dispute
Wildlife


One of the most emotional bands of the last ten years, this group is absolutely amazing and extremely talented. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUJScmvFmSM
4Rest
Rest


The most hated band on Sputnik, and probably one of the most popular, this group gets ragged on literally every day, but they take it in stride. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FvC8OOHz4w
5 Throbbing Gristle
The Second Annual Report


The creepiest, most sadistic music to ever come out of England, this group is amazing. This album especially. Listen to Slug Bait and tell me it doesn't send shivers down your spine. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXsWBMXorhM
6Dir En Grey
Kisou


Beautiful Japanese band. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyCrxhbOAUc
7 The Number Twelve Looks Like You
Nuclear, Sad, Nuclear


Great and intellectual Grind. Not for the faint of heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsLqgTfo2dI
8Rose Heyworth
Sigil


Just plain creepy. Couldn't find a sample, but it really makes you think. Especially about what may be under your bed at this very moment, or watching you shower.
9Rage Against The Machine
Evil Empire


If you hate this, you have no soul. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cudtwv-sAfs
10 Jewel
Pieces of me


So emotional. It's amazing that she can even put pen to paper and write like this. I know I couldn't. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSjVikRlE7o Song makes me cry every time.
11Between the Buried and Me
Colors


The next Pink Floyd, I swear to god. Not as intellectual as some of the other bands on this list. Still amazing. Sample:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-OagFHpYYs
12Tool
10,000 Days


Not as good as undertow, but still amazing. Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-HRa06KVA4
13 Pink Floyd
Dark Side Of The Moon


You really need a reason? Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbKAh3zJmH8
