These days, I tend to find out about bands through a sort of grapevine.
There are musicians I know online, mostly in Europe. Often the stuff
they listen to is stuff I'd be interested in also. I imagine a lot of
people have gone to this mode of discovering new music -- forgetting
about the pop airwaves, relying on the grapevine. Some artists are even
becoming "pseudo-famous" this way...not famous because of the mainstream
media, but famous because they've got the referal of other current day
musicians on the Internet that are widely known to be good artists.
It'd be nice if this trend continues. The more it does, the more
superfluous the mainstream pop industry becomes.

Yeah, that's happening again, Disney again. Miley Cyrus, Hannah
Montana, the Jonas Brothers, etc. Moral of the story: Mickey Mouse
