Re: Your Top 10 bands/artists of all-time

I may have missed it,almost put it up, but I am surprised there is not one mention of Chuck Berry. Or maybe I put too much value on him.

I think it's just that there are literally countless thousands if acts to choose from. I love a bit of Chuck but just not in my top ten, but when I hear his songs I am totally rockin' along.

Re: Your Top 10 bands/artists of all-time

Trying to narrow the list to only 10 bands is like asking me - "out of this 100,000 dollars, which ten ones do you like the most"?

But, off the top of my head, for this moment in time (it could easily change in ten minutes time) and in no specific order, I'd say...

Cheap Trick
Alice Cooper
Thin Lizzy
KISS
The Beatles
The Replacements
AC/DC
Nada Surf
INXS
The Cult

Re: Your Top 10 bands/artists of all-time

My all time favorite band is a local act called Junkbutton, but since they'll never be on a stage near you, I didn't bother to include them on my no particular ordered list:

Blue October
Bob Dylan
Jack White
The Doors
Guns n’ Roses
The Hold Steady
Kings of Leon
Micah P. Hinson
Okkervil River
Warren Zevon
