Of course The Cramps are an obscure band, even though they did the very ocassional TV appearance, they never had a hit, they never a high selling album and even though they influence a crap load of people and practically invented a genre (psychobilly) they are barely acknowleded.

So yeah, I would definately consider them as obscure.

The Misfits were not meant to be a best-selling band. And yes they played some heavy sh*t. They influenced a lot of thrash metal and speed metal in the mid 80s-90s.
Everyone must've listened to at least one Misfits song, one way or another. If it's not the fck-you-up-the-ass attitude, then it's the haircut.

Great bands, one and all:

    Rare Bird
    Captain Beyond
    Armageddon
    Noah
    Fat Mattress
    Rhinoceros
    Blodwyn Pig
    Atomic Rooster


All old, all difficult, or impossible to find these days.

Another, very underrated and often misunderstood band that still shows up on those stupid "Soft Rock" collections from the seventies, is Ambrosia. Few realize their first album was virtually psychedelic, and several later albums, though there were a few soft rock hits on them, actually kicked ass. Don't know what possessed me to buy any of them at first. Maybe it was the freaky one man band character and giant "palm" tree that was actually a huge marjuana plant, on the cover of Road Island:

They weren't excactly obscure, but their true talent sure was.

last time i checked the original inventors of psychobilly happened to be the meteors. the cramps were just a horrorpunk band and the very concept of psychobilly hadn't come around until the early 80's when the meteors started taking rockabilly and throwing in sci-fi and horror themes.

The Mars Volta! First three albums inspired by odd trips on acid. Album 4 inspired by a whole LIFE inside a ouija board.If thats not odd, i dont know what is.

Having said that, The Mars Volta have had THE biggest influence on my drumming in the last 12 months, so on that note, i take my hat off to Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Cedric Bixler Zavala, Thomas Pridgen and the rest of TMV for coming up with some of the most inspiring music ive ever heard in my life!

Hey I know Metal Church [thrash metal] and Mars Volta.. well I can't put that in a genre, but it's kinda shoegazing/alternative spacey pop?

Dude, Morbid Angel is so not obscure. They've been one of the leading death metal bands since the 90s I think.
