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.

It's sad I use to like Poison when first started. I remember Unskinny Bop was first on the radio. Could also add Warrant to that list.
You know, I was listening to their Native Tongue album the other day, that's the one after they fired their guitarist and tried to get serious. It was actually pretty good

Deal me in on that one! The only band ever to release something for free and I STILL bought the full release months later!

NIN could easily be on my list. My list was far closer to 20 bands I like than my top 20.

Re: Top 20 - Bands

I tend to follow artists through their whole careers, so I am doubling up and more on some bands with common key personnel as I consider them to be essentially the same thing.

Queen
Stone Temple Pilots
Pearl Jam
Bjork
Ry Cooder
The Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers/Greg Dulli
Mike Patton/Faith No More/Tomahawk/Peeping Tom
Screaming Trees/Mark Lanegan
Alice in Chains
Anthrax
Seth Lakeman
Radiohead
The Prodigy
The Almighty
Live
Leatherface
Jeff Buckley
Manic Street Preachers
Therapy?
Iron Maiden
Counting Crows

I think i had to cut out some really good bands there
