I've always been about lyrics more than popularity. Every once in a while I get lucky and a great lyrical song gets popular, but then the group tends to water down their music to stay popular, which is a travisty.
Here's a couple:
My newest addiction, Thriving Ivory. The music and lyrics are very moving, and really make you think. Songs create imagery in your mind. If they don't, you don't listen to them again. Thriving Ivory's music creates a different image for me every single time I hear a song. In today's music world, that's pretty unique. Enough, in fact, that their self title debut disk (indy label) is the first full album I've purchased in 15 years, or more. I'm that impressed. Research them and you'll be impressed.

The other that has a similar effect on me is Secondhand Serenade. Very powerful lyrics, delivered subtly. Essentially a one man band with an incredible voice, a story to tell, and the ability to tell it so it hits every listener differently.
It's your life, live it!
