"Favorite" Artist Tournament: Selection Thread(Please Post Your Top 10s)

For those that are unfamiliar with how these work. Everyone interested in participating needs to post their top 10 favorite artists, order is unimportant. I will take those lists and compile them into a master list, with tallies going ownh for each artist. Any artist that is on two or more lists is eligible for the tourney. Once the selection process is over(Usually 7-10 days), I will seed out the tourney into single elimination bracket format. All ties are broken with Random.Org's List Randomizer. Once it is seeded out we will start voting in the polls and eliminating artists until we have one left standing.


Top 10 List Deadline: 10 AM ET: 6/15

So get your lists in. All artists are eligible for this tourney. We will move on to album next, from there we will decide.


My Top 10:
Beatles
Nirvana
Rolling Stones
Beastie Boys
Dave Matthews
Tom Petty
Bruce Springsteen
Pearl Jam
U2
Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Well here's my top ten (ask me again 30 minutes later and they'd probably be different) :

Stevie Wonder
Earth Wind & Fire
The Beatles
Miles Davis
Louie Armstrong
Tupac Shakur
A Tribe Called Quest
Michael Jackson
Prince
Bob Marley

I concur. Any one of the genres I chose from could have easily filled my entire list. And, I didn't even get to list any Blues or Country artists.

At The Drive-In
David Bowie
Eels
Manu Chao
Massive Attack
Michael Franti
N.W.A.
Roots Manuva
Saul Williams
The Pharcyde

...this was very difficult only naming 10. I was able to take off some by who has already been named and I took off others I think will be picked later. My original list had more than 30.

On a side note, I don't know what forum it would fit under, but "Favorite Stand-up Comedian" would be a fun tournament.
