Searches for new physics in the form of resonances are sensitive over a great range of energies and produce a wide variety of experimental signatures. Within ATLAS, resonance searches are particularly popular in exotic analyses because of their relative model independence. This talk will examine a variety of recent results in \sqrt{s}=8 TeV data which span boson, lepton, and jet-based final states. Exclusion limits from these analyses will be shown and include heavy boson, excited quark, QBH, and graviton models in addition to a variety of generic resonance signals designed for reinterpretation. The talk will thus provide a brief but thorough overview of the state of ATLAS resonance results at the end of LHC Run I.
