  • OT - 50 Greatest Bands

    The latest Spin magazine breaks out the 50 greatest bands. IIRC there are many music-types on this forum.

    Here are a few of their picks:

    1. Beatles (of course)
    2. Ramones (say what?)
    3. Led Zeppelin (not as good as the Ramones?)
    6. Parliament/Funkadelic (Who?)
    8. Public Enemy
    9. Rolling Stones (well, they're no Public Enemy)
    10. Beastie Boys (excuse me while I puke)
    13. U2 (they can only hope to be as good as the Beastie Boys)
    17. Sonic Youth
    18. AC/DC (behind Sonic Youth???)
    27. Grateful Dead (behind The Stooges, The Smiths, N.W.A. and Kraftwerk????)
    32. Kiss (Man I loved them when I was young)
    39. The Who (Only one spot behind Bad Brains)
    43. Guns N' Roses (one behind Husker Du)
    45. The Beach Boys (one behind Outkast)
    47. Lynyrd Skynyrd (one behind Massive Attack)
    49. Pink Floyd (one behind Korn)

    Now I admit I've never been hip to current music, but these are absurd.

    I'm curious to hear from those who are more into music than I am.

        What irks me (maybe its too soon for the truth), DW was a 16-oval WIN specialist, yet the vast majority those boohooing for him, hardcarders & fans, alike are the same ones trying to kill anything with more than 9 deg banking & 4 corners, where Dan ultimately made his home...

              Never be influenced by the opinions of anyone when it comes to your individual music tastes. The best is who you think it is.

                Spin's demographics seem pre-pubescent.

                Besides, they forgot Butthole Surfers and Meat Puppets.

                        Bands, not artists, in no order:

                        The Who
                        Buffalo Springfield
                        Pearl Jam
                        R.E.M.
                        U2
                        Led Zeppelin
                        The Beatles
                        CCR

                        Artists are people like Hendrix, Miles, Coltrane, Tom Petty, Neil Young....

                        VH1 did like a million of these "100 Greatest" lists.

                        The TF demographic may like those lists better.

                            You're not going to break out into the Jitterbug are you? I bet you are a big Lawrence Welk fan. And a one, and a two....

                              As opposed to the likes of Kenton? Goodman? Teagarden? Shaw? (I'll give you Glenn Miller and maybe Dorsey).

                              Shaw was delving into new territory before Diz and Bird and just as talented as an instrumentalist (if not more so). While he played with heart, I must concede that his desire was not with music, but with writing. How interesting it would have been to hear is sound develop through the 50's, 60's, 70's - heck, even today.

                              And again with Kenton. He reached past the traditional mode of "big band" and pushed his groups to new musical hieghts. I'm not sure there has ever been groups as vibrant and dynamic of this size.

                              And take a quick listen to Goodman's '38 Carnegie Hall concert and tell me that it's not full of life.

                              In the case of Davis and Coltrane ... well, they did have "a little bit of melody." At least for part of their careers.

                              Don't get me wrong, I dig them all, just want to step up for the slighted big bands.
