MySpace Music

Updated on April 29, 2011

Discover New Music on MySpace

I created this lens several years ago, at the height of MySpace's popularity. Now that Facebook and Twitter have taken over the Social Networking world, a number of people have moved away from MySpace and are missing out on a great deal of great music that is offered up directly from the artists that create it.

After a number of my favorite bands started creating official MySpace pages, I decided it was time to finally break down and create my own.

I was shocked by how many amazing artists were on MySpace Music and what a great opportunity this was to find new music.

Shortly after creating my profile and adding my friends and family, I started receiving invites from a lot of great bands of which I was unfamiliar.

I am assuming that there are many other music lovers that would appreciate a list of the official MySpace pages for these great metal and rock bands.

Please feel free to contact me, and let me know about other great official pages that I may have missed.

Even after all these years. this lens is always work in progress, so expect it to grow and change over time. I'm in the midst of a fairly major redesign of this lens as it's been several years since it was first created and since so many things have changed on MySpace, I think it's time to redecorate.

    I review artists that other people haven't heard of on my blog, Melodyhunt. Contrary to popular belief, most of the bands I find are found while searching through Myspace. Sometimes I'll find a band on Myspace, I'll see the band is touring, and I'll then go to the website for some of the events they'll be touring to. This gives me a whole list of bands that sound like that artist.

    For some reviews of the bands I have found, check out http://www.melodyhuntblog.blogspot.com

    It's a shame about myspace. I had one for my music for so long, but it simply wouldn't get plays because no one went on myspace. Now I have a purevolume account, it doesn't get as much traffic, but it uploads music faster. I'm in and out, unlike myspace. Great lens!

    Hello! I have a Myspace "bands" profile (even though I'm a solo musician, LOL) at http://www.myspace.com/karenthelairmistress . I've gotten gigs and met a lot more new musicians and bands on Myspace than I ever did at Sonicbids. Not that there's anything wrong with Sonicbids (aside from the fact that it costs a bit to maintain one's EPK)...

    Anyway, thanks for the Myspace lens!

    Great addition to Squidoo... bands need to check into this for suggestions. I think one problem is that people overload their pages with too much video and graphics - it makes people avoid the page because it takes so long to load and use.

    My group has a MySpace page - but I no longer see it as a way to get our music out there - more of a place to send people to and communicate through.. mostly because there's no recommendation service, you have to be lucky which can be time consuming! Blogging has become the most popular way to promote music and I use the Hype Machine to keep up to date with other artists - I'm trying to get my music up there too.

    Hey, Julianne. I love your lens... and your profile. You're a very well-rounded person, indeed. I do have a myspace music page, with one "work in progress" posted. Just got my recording studio set up and am learning the ins and outs. I'm at myspace.com/poppaleelee if you care to listen. My main influences are Bjork, Faith No More, Chimaira, and (gasp) Korn. (I'm kind of a modern semi-mainstream kind of kid!) Thanks so much for this page, Julianne!

    It's always amazing to see how one's idea that starts off small grows into something so big, that good writers all over the net start writing and talking about it. I am looking forward to the day that JamBuzzer reaches the same milestone, and am looking forward to the day that music artists and bands reach a level of success that they thought only existed in dreams, as a result of what I am trying to make possible for them with it ;)

    Nice lens, and looking forward to watching it grow ;)
