my opinions of course:

1. So much Radiohead?
2. Yoshime Battles the Pink Robots is a gamechanger and should be top 10 (and ahead of soft bulletin)
3. Arcade Fire's The Suburbs is a rare 3rd album that improves on its predecessors & is near perfection. #16?
4. The Strokes Is This It should be a little bit higher.
5. No The White Stripes in top ten?
6. What happened to metal and real "rock" music. Jeez.

The above post is 100% medically accurate

Most of that makes me want to kill myself and my family in a cult style suicide pact while listening to Motley Crue Too Fast For Love.

You're so emo. tongue.gif


I just noticed a glaring omission from the list: Nine Inch Nails "The Fragile". I could easily put that at #1.

I doubt it, I don't see any My Chemical Romance on the list.

Wilco? The only reason they are there is because a bunch of people think they must like them because the "experts" keep telling them how Wilco is the best band in the world. Unfortunately, Wilco sucks like a renegade Hoover. However, they may be helpful in cases of stubborn insomnia.

I like Radiohead too, but seriously now.

As far as I'm concerned Jack White in his various incarnations could occupy most of the top 20, with a sprinkling of Joe Bonamassa and JJ Grey & Mofro.

Yeah, I don't get the Radiohead lovefest there, either, unless they are just absolute huge fans of the band.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

Well it just proves these so-called "best of" lists mean absolutely nothing. redface.gif Kanye West....tssss give me a break! And about Radiohead, I guess it just looks more clever to love their "cerebral rock"... rolleyes.gif
