some crappy American "scene" bands I haven't heard that term in ages...like, fall of troy, fear before, etc? The little seattle bizzy I lived next to my freshman year of college was really into that stuff. I always kinda liked fear before and portugal.the man! Not me, not at all. I listen mostly to metal and electro stuff, which would suggest a pretty dark vibe. Although I guess I'm heading that way these days, so maybe? Neat idea for a thread, although it seems like most people listen to too many kinds of music to be directly influenced by one genre or another.
