Re: Top 20 - Bands

Actual ranking shifts on kind of a daily basis according to my mood, so this is no particular order other than the order in which they come to mind...

The Clash
The Ramones
Social Distortion
The Beatles
The Rolling Stones
The Stooges
U2
Chuck Berry
Elvis Presley
Buddy Holly
Johnny Cash
Carl Perkins
Eddie Cochran
Little Richard
Bob Dylan
James Brown
Otis Redding
Booker T. & The MGs
Wilson Pickett
and, uh...

Er...

Hell. I don't know if I can come up with a definitive twentieth. It kind of drops off after that point to artists who have some songs I like but of which I am not any kind of especially devoted fan. Aretha Franklin? Sam & Dave? Marvin Gaye? Green Day? The Foo Fighters? Pink Floyd? Led Zeppelin? I guess most any of them could fit in, but I don't know if I could choose just one...

Oh--wait. It just came to me. Knew I was leaving someone out. Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, definitely. There we go--that's twenty.
