    The Arctic Monkeys in fact!

    Never got them at all when they were first around (High school for me), and was only recently that I got very into them. Even more so with their new stuff after watching Peaky Blinders!

    They are a bit obscure but The Posies passed me by as I actually thought they were someone else ....what a great band, especially the Dear 23 album.

    Loads of them. Belle & Sebastian the first that come to mind. Used to think they were a silly bunch of weegie art students that deliberately took ages to change their instruments between songs to prove how shambolic they were but I saw the light eventually.

    Muse and Embrace are two that spring to mind.

    Belle and Sebastian are ace, by the way.

    Not a band, but a singer/composer. I really didn't take to Michael Marra on first hearing, however, he is now one of my all time greats. Alas, he died in 2012.

    Coldplay. Didn't pay any attention to them until last year. Love a lot of their stuff now thanks to YouTube!

    Agree about belle and sebastian, one of my favourite bands - they do take a bit of getting though, eaxh song is like a wee story.

    Pulp. I did like them in my teens but it is only when I was in my thirties that 8 would say I "got" them. Listening to them now the lyrics are a lot stronger and resonate a lot more with me than they did when I was a youngster.

    My chemical Romance, wasnt sure what to make of them. A couple of their songs are up there with my favourites.

    Similar to me with Pulp. Something Changed is one of my favourite tunes from the 90s now but I didn't think that much of it at the time. I thought they were alright but looking back there was far more depth to them, particularly JC's lyrics than a lot of the other britpop bands that they were (probably unfairly) lumped in with.

    Pulp are/were amazing. One of the best bands of that era.

    Remember listening to "underwear" and "Like a friend" for the first time as a student. Bit of issue with the bird at the time and sort of thinking.. ach well, those songs will do me fine if I don't get where I want with her

    Brilliant band.
