at time of release this was pretty well known, 69 love songs was a relatively big album and bunny rabbits was the most played song on it.

Great idea for a thread

Everyone here knows I'm a huge Jedward fan, (I don't exactly keep it a secret ) and everyone knows them as celebs, but when I tell people I'm going to see them live, the biggest response I get is "doing what"?

So I think maybe that they are pretty good live and quite major pop stars, gracing the covers of many music magazines, with adult fans, males and females,and sell out gigs all around Europe, probably qualifies them for music that I like that not many people know about (in the the UK anyway)

Example of a Jedgig in Helsinki

Going by the lack of response to a thread I started about her, no one has heard of "Do"

Examples:

Beautiful Thing

I Will

Funny thing is, she has had a UK number 1 that everyone knows here:

Nerina Pallot.

She's brilliant but forever on the brink of commercial success. She deserves so much more recognition.

I really wouldn't say Pretty Reckless were 'unknown' they had relatively good chart success over here and in the US shes known well as a model.

I've recently been listening to some of my old industrial stuff, so unless you're about 40 and like punk / alternative there's a fair chance you've never heard
