For the past few weeks, we've been slowly providing you with 100 of our favorite lesser known and up-and-coming bands from this year. It's been fun but now, it's time we wrap up. Last, but most certainly not least - Part Four of The Absolute 100.

It's finally here: Part Three of The Absolute 100. Our annual up-and-coming band feature is now more than halfway through - only 25 more to go. Have we helped you discover a new favorite or two?

Last week, we premiered the first 25 of The Absolute 100, a beautiful beginning to a massive feature containing many of our favorite up-and-coming acts of this year. We hope you found a few gems, but now it's time for 25 more.

Last year, we introduced a new feature called The Absolute 100. As a list of our favorite up-and-coming and lesser known bands, we hoped to start a fire with all the blossoming talent. This time around it's no different. Now introducing, Part One of 2008's The Absolute 100.

We've begun the creation of this year's Absolute 100 list. Though we already have a bunch of bands in mind, we're wondering what bands you think should make it. We're looking for smaller bands that many haven't heard of. No genres are restricted, so throw some great recommendations out...you may just see them on this year's list. Check out last year's list to see what it's like.

Absolute 100 band The Hsu-nami will have their music played during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
