    I added squirelly's usage of the word 'cryptic' to the hint list. Seems to fit along with clue, code and key.

    but of course I'm probably completely wrong and gonna throw ppl off the correct path now!

    It's not a 'legendary' band such as Metallica, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, etc...
    The RS1 relation was someone's speculation, not my clue; it is not related to RS1.

    But something else back there in the thread in green is not on your list. Re-evaluate what people have discovered.

    It's not Franz Ferdinand.

    Here, I put them together.

    It's not Metallica or the Crowes

    It's not Black Keys next week.

    I would love it to be Spinal Tap, Nirvana, or Dethklok but it is not.

    If it was Beatles, Pink Floyd, or any of the classic artists we know everybody wants, you would be more likely to see it in a press release than one of my little puzzles.

    It's not Silversun Pickups.

    Sorry,no falling on suns in holes this week.

    It is not Hootie & the Blowfish. Darius Rucker is not involved

    The RS1 relation was someone's speculation, not my clue; it is not related to RS1.

    It's not Franz Ferdinand.
