Bands you discovered thanks to Rock Band?

Which bands or artists you didn't know before, heard in a Rock Band for the first time, and ended up liking (beyond the song in RB)?
The first ones coming to mind for me are Interpol, Silversun Pickups and Lacuna Coil. I had never even heard of the first two before RB2, and of the latter I barely knew that they were Italian but hadn't heard any song from them. RB2 made me discover them, and Spotify did the rest

The Mother Hips.
Time We Had was on Rock Band 1's disc and I didn't care for it (and I still don't particularly love it). But all of the DLC songs are amazing. The first two, Time-Sick Son of a Grizzly Bear and Red Tandy, are fantastic. Especially Red Tandy, because the album cut is like 2 minutes long with a fadeout... and the DLC version is an insane 6 minutes jam session.
The next two, Third Floor Story and White Falcon Fuzz, are the two songs that got me into the band and converted me into a huge fan. They are now essentially tied for slots 8 through 13 on my top-bands-I've-listened-to-the-most-in-the-past-9-years list.

The main ones are Amberian Dawn and Andromeda. Never heard of them before they appeared in RBN.
I don't really listen to them daily or whatever, but Amberian Dawn has their own good touch on the power metal genre, and Andromeda is pretty interesting in their own way.

Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse, and from the RBN, the Apples in Stereo.
I haven't latched on to these bands as a whole, but thanks to RB there are now songs I like from the Killers and the Raveonettes. And thanks to RB I also now have more appreciation for several '90s bands I didn't really care for before, including Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Weezer and Garbage.
