People hear the bands I listen to and start asking about this or that song, and they tell me that I'm not a real "fan" of that music because I have limited knowledge on the songs from the band. I have to get music from a crappy free music app on my phone, so I just download specific songs I already know that I like. Do you guys have any suggestions for songs I should look up from the bands I already listen to, or ones from bands you think I'd like?
