5 BANDS I THOUGHT I DISCOVERED
before I realized everyone else had discovered them as well
- •Fun.I was really really excited in 2012 when I listened to Aim and Ignite on repeat for three months. Then I realized We Are Young, the biggest song of the year, was by the same band and felt like my secret obsession had been violated.
- •The ScriptNone of my friends were listening to them! Apparently, though, the rest of the world was.
- •The FrayThe Fray had had two top 10 albums released by the time I was listening to them. Maybe I shouldn't've bragged about the cool new band I was listening to.
- •Plain White T'sThey were the opening band at a concert I went to! Obviously they were nobodies. I didn't quite grasp that they were formed before I was born until a bit later.
- •Cage the ElephantMaybe alternative bands just always feel like you're the first one to listen to them, because that's surely what I thought.
