Six Great Bands That Aren't Nine Inch Nails

4. Front 242

When he's not posting about trypophobia or making pornography, my good buddy Chad has been on a hyper-worship kick of Front 242 lately. As another band I've ignored for years (maybe because of the name's similarity to Frontline Assembly), I am now kicking myself for not taking an interest in these freaky Belgians sooner. I guess they called this stuff "Electronic Body Music" (EBM) which pretty accurately describes the urge to dance around while wearing sunglasses, short shorts and a leather jacket with no shirt.

3. My Life With Thrill Kill Cult

This might be stretching the word "great" a bit, but it's definitely worth a mention. I heard about this band from a tall dude I used to hang out with in high school who wore a choker, freaky contacts and vampire teeth. I never gave it a listen because of the awful name, much in the way I've never seen the movie The Crow because of its pasty goofball fans.
