Define unknown ? Stannard Ridgeway only printed a few copies of his album, but he's in Wall of Voodoo. Wall of Voodoo isn't known at all these days until you mention "Mexican Radio", to which about 20% of the people say "Oh yeah!" and then move on with life.

I dont' know any Clutch songs. ergo, unknown to me.

Okay, sorry I didn't analyze this as deeply as you did. I thought unknown meant unknown, like, unsigned, local, undiscovered, obscure. Like I said, if they are on the radio, in a movie, or have a shirt at Hot Topic, they hardly qualify as unknown. But, enough with semantics...

Check out Anomalous, preferably the album Cognitive Dissonance.

Actually, I found a Kraftwerk t shirt at hot topic at the beginning of the year.

Everyone knocks the HT but really, when it comes down to it, they are offering designer labels that simply aren't found anywhere else except the LA / NY boutiques from whence they came, and the t's are officially licenced, meaning a more expensive wholesale buy.

just sayin :)

I don't mind Hot Topic at all. My point was only that if the band shirt is there, they are officially mainstream. Like, I love Opeth, who was never on the wall until their new album and tour and now somehow, they have three shirts? It seems to cheapen the music in a way.

Most band shirts are designed by the member's wives, girlfriends, good friends or even their children.

I learned this when I worked for The Mountain. Oh and Abby Terkuhle is a riot.

+1 for Opeth.

My whole HS wrestling team was obsessed.

Holy crap, Hondaswap has a wrestling team?!

Everyone else said:
blah blah non-wrestling stuff

I can't believe you people aren't wondering about this secret Hondaswap wrestling team as much as I am.

I dug further and discovered the truth.

It turns out that B runs an underground wrestling club under the guise of a swap site. My sources have gone to great lengths to uncover this photo of him in action:

Next Flag Day cover? :ph34r: Remember, the truth is out there!
