    Alright guys, I'm bored of music... kinda. Well I just wanna pick up something new. I basically like everything (cept popular hip/hop or rap)

    Let's see what I listen to with just a quick browse through my media player:
    The Avalanches, Basshunter, The Beatles, Cage the Elephant, Coldplay, cornandbeans (from newgrounds), The Cure, Daft Punk, David Byrne, David Gray, Electric Light Orchestra, Elton John, Elvis Costello, Eric Clapton, Explosions in the Sky, Fall Out Boy, Five For Fighting, Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand, Gomez, Gorillaz, Green Day, Hello Madness (torrent only release), Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Jet, July for Kings, The Killers (old stuff), Linkin Park, MGMT, Moby, Modest Mouse, Neil Young, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Phoenix, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, R.E.M., Sigur Ros, The Smashing Pumpkins, Sting, Tiesto, TV on the Radio, U2, The Wallflowers, The White Stripes, Wilco, The XX (just DL'd, pretty good)

    Among many others. (Including happy techno from 4Chan and newgrounds)

    Anyway, I'm kinda looking for an instrumental band, or happy techno, though whatever suggestions you may have, I'd appreciate. And if you haven't heard of any of these groups, I'd recommend all of them!

    You could use LastFM to find music you would like.
    You can either make an account and set it up, and then the site will start suggesting which artists you may like.
    Or you can go to some of your favorite artists their page, and you will see similar artists there.

    From your list, i have 3 for you:

    The Fratellis - A scottish 3some. Kinda the party flair of Franz Ferdinand

    Envy On The Coast - A harder Incubus. (i also recommend Incubus lol)

    and
    Jimmy Eat World - They've been around since 1993 and have not had a bad album. I saw them live and they were stunning. More melodic, and emotional (you could say on the forefront of the Emo scene... but not the current black clothing whiny emo... just very emotional in sound.) GREAT music, one of my favorite bands.
