Alternative, Post-Punk and Rock music recommendations please!?
+++Before you answer my question, please make sure that you will bother looking through the lists of artists below and your answer will follow my specifications.+++
Hey there. I'm really into alternative, post-punk and rock music and I would like some help finding some different bands and artists to listen to.
I'd prefer old than new (maybe around 70's-late 80's), that are NOT on the list and it would be GREATLY appreciated if you kindly leave some recommended songs along with the name of the artist.
You're probably thinking "Oh my god, another question asking for a music recommendation, just search for some music on a song searching engine yourself!" But I want to know your opinions so I can expand my music library with music I can really relate to and enjoy.
I know that my list is ridiculously long, but I REALLY hate those really shitty overrated bands that people recommend in almost every Yahoo Answers music recommendation question so I thought I should list some of them down so you can avoid listing them.
You can recommend less popular songs that you feel are really good by artists that are on the 'They're okay' and 'Have only listened to a few songs' section of the list as well!
Again, please, no punk, metal or techno or any other genre for the time being (you can see what sort of bands and artists I DO NOT WANT recommended at the bottom of this post).
Foster The People
We Are Scientists
Cage The Elephant
Matt & Kim
Of Monsters And Men
Have only listened to a few songs:
The Click Five
Death Cab For Cutie
A Fine Frenzy
Mumford & Sons
The Naked and Famous
Peter, Bjorn & John
The Postal Service
The Smashing Pumpkins
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Tokyo Police Club
Two Door Cinema Club
The Velvet Underground
Walk Off The Earth
The White Stripes
NONE OF THESE!!!!!!:
The Academy Is...
The All-American Rejects
All Time Low
Boys Like Girls
Cute Is What We Aim For
Fall Out Boy
The Foo Fighters
Gym Class Heroes
Jimmy Eat World
My Chemical Romance
New Found Glory
Panic! At The Disco
Plain White T’s
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Taking Back Sunday
30 Seconds To Mars
Three Days Grace
You Me At Six
We The Kings
...or any other bad overrated artists
Also, I'd prefer less popular bands that aren't too mainstream or underrated bands, because I think it's easy to find popular bands by myself with time.
Thanks for recommending me The Dickies! I heard them in Kick *** and completely forgot about 'em!

A GREAT TRICK TO REMEMBER: Within Amazon in MP3 catergory, enter the name of band you like; click on an album; when the page opens, under that album's tracks it will say" Customers who bought..."; it is a list of other albums you might like. Sometimes you have to scroll through a bunch before U get lucky, but a lot of times it can worth the search :)

Check out The Dickies, Dickies are from the 70's and early 80's. They're hard to categorize, some say pop, I think they're just weird, but really good.
