    I'm posting this mainly for reference but for anyone else documenting or researching bands on Riffipedia this is a list of sites that I've found over the two years on this wiki and just how reliable they can be.

For those who want to start digging into a story of that hip new stoner band or some mythical doom act from yesteryear, this guide may be of help with some personal examples applied:

    Official Websites - Most of the time this is the best possible source to go by in terms or raw information from the band be it touring, history or whatnot. One common problem, especially with old band pages, is how much of it has bee…
