10 Texas Bands That Don't Get Enough Credit

BABOON Baboon has a rare gift for squeezing the dense guitars and brawny drums more often heard on post-hardcore records into bittersweet pop-rock tunes. Some of Weezer's better albums mine the same territory, but for our money this Denton-based crew had better songs, especially on 2002 personal favorite Something Good Is Going to Happen to You Today. Once badly burned by the same label that unleashed Creed on the world, Baboon have largely curtailed their recording and touring activities, although they still play out in the Metroplex from time to time.
