    Holy crap that's a lot of hair metal!

    At least you didn't say Poison or WASP, though.

    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.

    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.

    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 :eek:
