But first we need nominations. I was thinking of starting out with 50 bands or so and going from there. So nominate a band, or bands, you think are the best ever. Doesn't matter which genre, period, or anything they are from! So lets get this started!

Here's a few staples just to get it started


Led Zepplin
Pink Floyd
The Beatles
The Rolling Stones

Are we talking just bands, or individual artists? I'll start with bands (that haven't been mentioned yet):

Steely Dan (I know, they can't win, but damn I love 'em)
The Police
The Mothers Of Invention
Devo (yes, I'm serious)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions
The Stooges
The Kinks
and just for fun: T. Rex

It's actually a little difficult to come up with just bands. It's much easier to pick out individual artists. I guess 'cause most bands don't have much staying power.

As long as they're solo artists that's cool. So Bjork or Neil Young is cool, but Kurt Cobain or Robert Plant then no.

I'm afraid i cannot stand U2. I normally can tolerate bland stadium rock, but taking into account the cliched rock star posturing and sanctimonius preaching disguised as political awareness I'm prepared to make an exception and actively hate them.

My nominations:

the velvet underground
kraftwerk
sonic youth
pavement
the beach boys
the stones
the fall

Lock up your daughters! Yeah, yeah, yeah
In sometimes you're acting the fool
Sometimes you're breaking the rules
Sometimes you wanna run away
Sometimes you stay out of school
Well it's a dirty old town
And you know it's where we all belong
Tell your mama back home
She was just the same when she was young
I wanna give you some advice
Lock up your daughters right now
Will give you a smile on your face
Lock up your daughters somehow
This is the time, the time of the place
Yeah, yeah, yeah!


Fuck Yeah, eh...

Seeing as though there is so much U2 hate going down in this thread, and I ain't particularly into them myself but I don't feel the need to slag em. Therefore, why the love for Bowie? I simply don't get the love, he has pretty neat intro's, but beyond that... hmmm, Dance magic dance? To sum this man up, all style, nay content, just like his bulgy ziggy crotch. Inflated ego beyond comprehension due to coke, and, and, he got a mighty slapping off Lou Reed. Take that Bowie.

MOR prog rock comes no hollower than Bowie. "But he's the jagger of prog rock!" I hear you cry, no he ain't, he sux and doesn't even know the meaning of the word soul. He's the musical equivalent of the WWF and village gossip, scandal and outrage for its own sake. I guess at the end of the day, I hate his voice.

While I'm here, 'nother one to add, Van Morrison.

Bowie/Eno trilogy of LOW, HEROES, and LODGER are three of the greatest
albums ever made. Way ahead of their time; just pure genius.

Eno's solo work is amazing too. BLANK FRANK is one of my favorite songs
of all time.

Blasphemy! Blasphemy! I'd add "Ziggy Stardust" to the previously mentioned Eno collaborations as truly fantastic rock albums. In addition, Bowie is one of the few (possibly the only) artist of his era still putting out interesting music. "Cactus" and "Never Get Old" are great songs.

Oh, and Van Morrison's Astral Weeks is one of the top 10 albums of all time, if you ask me. Which you didn't. But still, I'm just sayin'.

I agree, but Eno wasn't involved in the creation of Ziggy Stardust.
He and Bowie didn't really collaborate directly until LOW (the Berlin years).

I've never been to Berlin, but would love to. Isn't it funny how the city
became like this locus of art and music -- Bowie, Eno, Iggy Pop, Neu!, Nick
Cave, Einstruzende Neubauten, Kraftwerk all called it their home at one
time or another. Seems like the 70s and early-mid 80s Berlin was like the
ground zero of interesting artes; all the while the Wall loomed in the
background... neat stuff...

Sorry, poorly worded sentence. I just meant that Ziggy deserves to be celebrated along with Low, Heroes and Lodger as classic albums.

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) is right up there as well.

Watching the rise and fall of various "scenes" has always been interesting. I would argue that the very reason the Berlin sound was so unique was that damn wall looming outside the studio. The idea (if not the reality) of oppression has done wonders for modern music.

U2 is as much a marketing campaign as any of the other big name musical act. That is to say, they exist to create music and to sell it to an audience, all to turn a profit. It's the business of the music business.

And while I know many folks are turned off by Bono's extra-U2 activites, I'm here to say that the causes the man champions are quite noble. I love the band because of their music, but I respect the shit out them for using their celebrity to raise both funds and awareness to causes the rest of the world aren't focusing on but should be.

Bono's not a messiah--nor does he believe himself to be--just a damn fine Christian.

We could start a huge pro/anti-Bono arguement here... but I'll just state that I hate their music, and that while the causes he champions are worthy, the way he does it most certainly is not, and that I feel he's a pompous Struggling Background Artist who thinks his views are more enlightened than those of everyone else.

If you want to refute it, fine. I'm not going to threadjack this into a 'fuck Bono up his stupid ass' thread (any more than I have done), and as thus won't argue with your reply.

I've found the anti-U2 sentiments quite interesting. Very few people seem to take the "meh" view, but a whole lot actively hate the band. I'm not a U2 fanatic by any means... I like them quite a bit, and a couple of their albums (Joshua & Achtung) I think are remarkable. I just don't see how their music is "hateable".

Now Britney, J-Lo, etc... that I can see. But U2? They may be droll at times, they may be pompous at times, but I can't see how that all gets translated into "suck".

And so this isn't a total threadjack, I'll nominate The Pogues as well.

U2 = most overrated band in history.


No, no, no. If you're talking overreted by its fans, then The Grateful Dead is by far the most overrated band in history, followed closely by KISS.

Watch it Dennis! The Kiss Army might come to your house and stomp you with their 20-inch platform boots. :wink:
