    Not sure how many people outside Canada really know this band... But I really enjoy this Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip from time to time. They have lots of really good songs imo (although not for everyone on this board I'm sure). If you want to check them out (they have 10+ cd's) I suggest the tracks - Locked In The Trunk Of A Car, 38 Years Old, Looking For A Place To Happen, Blow At High Dough, New Orleans Is Sinking, Little Bones, and Grace, Too.

    Nah I'm not ashamed lol. I grew up with them. I used to live across the road from a venue concerts used to be at and they played there every summer so I'd just sit out and watch them all the time with binoculars haha (it was an outside venue). I think they're good just a lot of my friends don't like them :loco: .

    my most guilty thing is Deadsy, which is a weird synth rock band from california. I saw them open for Korn and I loved them. other than that, I don't listen to much light stuff. does KMFDM count as guilty?

    Fuck NO. KMFDM are just weird industrial-synth pop.

    Aren't they MDFMK these days? Apparently it has something to do with Raymond Watts?

    Lamb of God is my guilty pleasure. Sort of watered down but the intensity attracts me...

    Great thread...

    I'm not guilty about these, but these are probably unexpected from an Opeth fan:

    Kenny Rogers
    Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet"
    Ben Folds
    Elton John
    Billy Joel
    Joe Cocker
    Los Lonely Boys
    Foreigner
    Norah Jones
    Toto
    Whitesnake

    Coheed and Cambria which I listen to more than I do Opeth. It's just happier sounding to me:kickass:

    Simon and Garfunkel
    Cat Stevens

    Like I said, no guilt but probably unexpected. :)
    I don't even like other metal bands than Opeth, Disillusion, Nevermore, Tool, Katatonia, Dream Theater, Devin and PoS.
    So I am listening to as much unexpected bands ("guilty pleasures") as to metal bands. :rolleyes:
