    Always looking for cool new or old music. What are some bands that are basically incomparable in sound.

    for example.. no band ever sounded quite like the frantic yet operatic energy of System of a Down. Who are some bands that are totally unique?

    I’ll add Crash Test Dummies. Couple good songs, very unique vocally.

    Skindred didn’t really have very good music, but their blend of reggae and metal was definitely unique.

    Good one! Lol. They do what they do really well though!
    I heard a more obscure LZ song on the radio the other day. Legitimately thought it was GVF until I shazamed it.

    Nobody sounded like these guys, and anything more than their first couple of albums would be hard to take...
