Great Unknown Music

Every once in a while I like to highlight fantastic music that I feel is being unfairly ignored by the world. With the Stone Temple Pilots in the news recently and everyone raving about their taking on the lead singer from Linkin Park in place of Scott Weiland (due to his refusal to ever kick the drugs)--all of which I find sad, since the new single they released with the new singer just isn't very good--I thought I would focus on Army of Anyone.
Have you heard of them? Even some people who have heard of them have pretty much forgotten about them by now. It the musical members of Stone Temple Pilots with the singer from Filter. Why it got ignored by most people, I have no idea, since their album rocks. I have five songs from their sole album rated as five stars in iTunes, and that ranks them up with the better albums of any band in my collection. It is true, I think, that the songs need some time to grow on you, but it's worth giving them several listens to allow this to happen.

Check out my five favorites from this great but overlooked album:


  1. They remind me a little of Green Day.
    I could name dozens of prog rock bands that are overlooked here in the US. Fortunately, many are massively popular in Europe.

  2. I haven't heard of them, but I love the Stone Temple Pilots, so I guess I'll have to check out their album.

  3. Weiland is a nutcase, but a brilliantly talented singer.

  4. They sound all right. Not really grabbing me, though. Like the muppets in the the video.
