Titus Andronicus, Real Estate, Senses Fail and The Front Bottoms. 

What do these bands have in common? 

They’re all from New Jersey’s northeast-most county. They were all featured in an NJ.com feature about the area’s local music scene. And they’re all relatively well-known.

We’re here to posit a different question: Who are the Bergen County performers we should be talking about?

Hardcore, indie, rap, reggae, bluegrass—the genre doesn't matter. 

Making it in the music industry is a tough gig and we want to help, link your homegrown band—or your favorite local band—in the comments below and get noticed.

We'll compile a list of our favorites and publish it on Patch sites across the area.

On the playlist so far:

Woah, didn't expect to see The Burnt. You could also add The Misfits, they were from Lodi.
