Speaking of Meade Skelton - somebody from FFXU had to have contributed to the Meade Skelton definition on urban dictionary.com. Especially definitions 2 and 3.

The fact that you're talking about him, reading his blog, and looking at his pictures means he accomplished what he set out to do.

Even if you hate him and think he's a no-talent hack, you still watched his videos and listened to his songs.

Epitaph is my fav song. Didn't they lose/drop a drummer recently? I think he works at Reston Music now in Fox Mill

another +1 for darkest hour.

Nobody mentioned Driving east....haha. They aren't bad if you're into the poppy kind of rock they do, but they really aren't worth mentioning i suppose.

and my favorite highway has gotten a little more popular than i expected. I've been listening to them for a few years for some reason.

Some good bands are:
Listless
Milk Carton Mug-Shots
All Access

And an older one that isn't together anymore is Crime Brigade. I think you may still be able to find them on myspace though. I think they stopped once they moved to Cali.

You can either find these bands on myspace or facebook :]

One of the lead singers from Rain Fell Within is now fronting a band called Todesbonden. But I think they are from MD.

Ronnie Dove from Herndon had some minor Top 40 hits in the mid 1960s and country Top 40 hits in the 1970s. Then there's Dave Grohl.

Wiki says the following are FFX natives as well:
Kate Jackson (a singer-songwriter)
TobyMac (formerly part of the Christian group dcTalk, which I have heard of)
