Wait a minute...a music poll without the Beattles at #1?

I don't think I'd say Gnarles Barkley "Changed the world"

They made the world a little more annoying. I guess that's changing it a bit.

Brian Wilson nailed it with his pick. Perfect pop and led to the Jesus and Mary Chain (aka best band ever)

Once again, synth music is totally overlooked. Where is Gary Numan's The Pleasure Principle, or Human League's Dare, etc. Those albums changed the face of popular music completely. At least they throw us a bone with Kraftwerk.

Bollocks.

Odd? Except for a couple (like #100), I think it's an excellent list of songs/albums that took popular music to the next level, and influenced a new batch of artist that would go on to influence others.

Even if it's not Little Richard's best song, I'd say it really defined and deeply influenced that first rock 'n' roll generation pretty well, the Beatles included.

And by the way, I am a Beatles fan.

Brian Eno's Discreet Music is in there too, although obviously that influenced ambient more.

A lot of underrepresented genres, especially classic/hard/progressive rock, but that should be no surprise.

No Cream, no RUN DMC (more influential than NWA), no Pink Floyd except for a single? No Grateful Dead?

Well, the list only goes to 100. I'm sure a truly comprehensive list of hugely influential albums/singles would number in the 1,000s.
