Bands That Should Be Bigger

Originally published on Wed November 21, 2012 10:59 am

The halls of music history are littered with bands that should have made it big, but never did. Maybe they put out a couple of amazing records and you feel like you're the only person on the planet who appreciated them. Or maybe they're still trying, and you're holding out hope, along with the band, that that big break will finally come.

We recently asked listeners to tell us their picks for bands that should be way bigger than they are and we were surprised by how many we didn't know. On this edition of All Songs Considered we share some of the discoveries we made, along with some of our own candidates for bands that should be bigger.
