    Maybe the solution is to rename the thread. "Good Band Thread" is very general and also very subjective cuz what I like might not be what others like. There also have been many (myself included) that have posted music that is older than 20-30 years old. And because this forum has members as young as 18 and as old as over 60, there is going to be a very wide range of interest.

    Maybe change the rules. The intention was that it should be music/artists that are not well known. That can span decades. But maybe add the rule that it can't be music that is considered top 40. Pretty much, if it was ever in the top 40, most everyone has heard it... probably a million times.

    Just my thoughts...

    It originally started as the "Obscure Band Thread". Then someone posted something that was from a known band but kind of an obscure tune and at the same time the thread was dying off, so that's when we went to "Good Band Thread" to get more interest.
    But your idea isn't bad.
    If it was ever on the TOP TEN BILLBOARD CHART it don't belong here. :D

    Yes, I remember it was the "Obscure Band Thread." Maybe change it the "Obscure Music Thread" with one of the rules being no top 40.

    Obscure; "of little or no prominence, note, fame or distinction." Given top 40 music is well known, receives a lot of recognition, and/or becomes famous, it would not be considered obscure. And I admit, I posted a song that was #1 on the charts.

    as I said any music could be considered obscure. something popular years ago may not been heard or even know about by todays audience.

    IMO, just leave the thread as is, any music instead of only music a certain member likes.

    In my humble opinion, we should change the name and update the rules. As the OP stated, this thread was started with one purpose...to share new (er) / obscure music that we may not be aware of. I absolutely love Jonny Cash, but I already have his songs on my phone and am very familiar with this work. I want to hear new (er) bands that I am not familiar with. I think we already have a thread for Favorite Music. That's where we can post our favorite tracks of all time, and reminisce. If we don't have one....let's start one. That makes it fairly simple. One thread to share our all-time favorites and another to share obscure music that is not familiar to many people. Again, that's just my opinion and I am not, I repeat am not, saying anyone is wrong or broke any rules. It would just be nice to get this back to what it was and move on.

    Love it, Sajo️! I'm starting the "Favorite Music Thread" with one of my favorites. We can keep this as the "Obscure Music Thread" with rules that it is for music that is not top 40, not well known, new bands/music that needs more exposure and should be discovered. I think this should work for everyone.

    Edit: Oh, guess I won't start the new thread. Sajo beat me to it.... or rediscovered the one that already existed. So I'll just have to post there.

    Of come on, Mr. Salty. First of all, as I've said more then once now, there is plenty of music in this thread I didn't like. Plenty of MODERN music. When I started this thread I wanted to be turned on and turn others onto: new music. It was never intended to be used to... get kids into 80's music. I just have a feeling you are one of 'those people' that think there hasn't been a good song written in 15 years. At least. Amirite?
    Have you found anything new in this thread that you like? I hope you did.
    Do you click links we share, or just post?

    Bottom line: But you know what, the more I think about... It's my thread! I started it. I decide da' rules. Not you. Go away and post in that other thread. or start your own!
    :D bwahahahaha :D

    Yeah, but 60's & 70's music is the best!
