Florida Music Can Be Good!

Grizzly Adams DID have a beard!
1Poison the Well
The Opposite of December

South Florida metalcore and a pioneer of the genre.

Another pioneer of a genre, but this time, it's death metal. RIP Chuck!
3Less Than Jake
Hello Rockview

I'm not really that much of a ska fan. In fact, I despise most of the genre, but goddamn, is this catchy.
4Against Me!
Reinventing Axl Rose

Against Me! is like a movie that starts off really good, and you're expecting it to just lead to this glorious conclusion. But all it does is end with a splat. 'Nuff said.

Listen, I'm sentimental, okay? This came out when I was probably 16 or 17, and I couldn't stop listening to it. Hell, I'll still throw it on here and then. Plus, I was in one of their music videos, so I got a soft spot in my heart 4 Elias and the boys.
6Shai Hulud
That Within Blood Ill-Tempered

This is as close as I can find to real South Florida hxc. Yes, I know, they moved to New York, but this is still where they found their place in music. Classic album from a classic group.
Cause of Death

I cannot find, nor think of, any great Florida-based thrash acts, so I had to choose a death metal act that I felt had major thrash influences, and the first band that popped into my mind was Obituary.
8Matchbox Twenty
Yourself Or Someone Like You

The best example of Florida pop I could find, these guys had 5 Top 20 hits come off of this album. If you are my age and you never caught yourself singing along to any of those 5 songs, then you must not have a heart.
9New Found Glory
New Found Glory

Well, here's my token pop-punk act. Yes, their music is/was catchy. Yes, they blew up. Yes, they got worse as they got older. Should have seen that coming. Jordan's a prick, and Chad, well.... Chad should have never left Shai Hulud. Too bad.
102 Live Crew
As Nasty As They Wanna Be

Any group that get's banned in Miami is okay with me. If you lived down here, you'd know it took a lot back then to get into any trouble. The 1980's Hurricane football program should be evidence enough. Luther, you're still the man, too.
