Your Top Ten Musical Acts


#1

Recently I got a new car that came with Sirrus satellite radio. As part of the service you can load in your favorite songs and bands and it’ll tell you when they have a song on any of the 100+ radio stations. It’s quite a smart feature, but there’s a limit to how many favorites you can have.

So I’ve been spending the last few weeks deciding on my top ten bands. Here’s my list:

  • The Who
  • AC/DC
  • Led Zeppelin
  • U2
  • ABBA
  • Fatboy Slim
  • Queen
  • Madonna
  • Iron Maiden
  • Dire Straights

What would your favorites list be?


#2

I imagine my list will draw a lot of blank faces, but here goes:

  • Broken Social Scene
  • Pinback
  • Do Make Say Think
  • Godspeed! You Black Emperor
  • Wolf Parade
  • The Morning Benders
  • Beirut
  • The Album Leaf
  • old AFI
  • Blur (at least this one isn’t obscure! although they are still in America)

#3

:no_mouth:


#4

I knew it…


#5

The Monkees
The Beach Boys
Depeche Mode
Donovan
AC/DC
Mano Negra
Daft Punk
Bob Seger
Queen
Something…I’m gonna steal Kiel’s Blur


#6

Oooo. What kind of car did you get?

Here’s my list.

  • Beastie Boys
  • Blink 182
  • Johnny Cash
  • Coheed & Cambria
  • Daft Punk
  • Miles Davis
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Bob Marley
  • MxPx
  • Smashing Pumpkins

Edit: I decided to go with my current buying proclivities. Though there is a lot more punk, rap, country, reggae, classic rock and others that could easily be added.


#7

Kanye West
Nas
Jay-Z
Led Zeppelin
Wu-Tang Clan
The Notorious B.I.G.
M.I.A.
Beck
The Clash
TV on the Radio or Frank Ocean


#8

Chrysler Pacifica 2017. Yes a Minivan. It’s like driving a space shuttle. I love it. I’ll be driving minvans for the next 20 years now.


#9

I actually really like the Honda Odyssey. My old boss had one and my sister has one. They’re amazing, comfortable and I even fit in the rear seats without odd contortions. Minivans have ascended above the soul crushing, this is what I have to buy now that I have a family machines into a realm of drivable and actually enjoyable vehicles.


#10

Right to change my choices at any time invoked :wink:
Eels
Curve
Rush
Portishead
Brian Eno
Kraftwerk
Radiohead
10CC
Temptations
Carpenters


#11

With the caveat that the list can and will change…

Queen
Nine inch nails
Depeche Mode
David Bowie
Nirvana
Alice in chains
KMFDM
VNV nation
Covenant (the Swedish EBM/industrial act, not the American metal/industrial one)
Front Line Assembly


#12

Massive Attack
Prince
Superfurryanimals
Orbital
Leftfield
Kate Bush
Blur/Gorrilaz (a slight cheat but I like their best stuff pretty equally)
Pink Floyd
Portishead
Peter Gabriel


#13

I call thee brother.

I’d go with:
GY!BE
Jaga Jazzist
Tord Gustavsen Trio
Deaf Center
Portishead
Photek
Sufjan Stephens
Radiohead
Badbadnotgood
Jonathan Wilson


#14

Sufjan’s right up there for me too, but I have to admit I wish he’d gone a little further with the state-album conceit!


#15

Peaked with Seven Swans, for me. But his new stuff beat Beirut for a place on the list, as they’ve kind of rehashed Sunday Smile for their whole career. :slight_smile:


#16

Fixed that for you :wink: I don’t totally agree, but I understand. I also love Sufjan’s recent work, but I thoroughly enjoyed the offbeat take on American history those two albums in particular gave.


#17

There’s a few ‘acts’ who would have been on my list for years but dropped off because of some of their later output so I’ll go with a criteria of acts I enjoy pretty much everything they’ve done -

Nine Inch Nails
Ron Trent
Ian Brown
Larry Heard
Aphex Twin
Danzig
Robert Hood/Floorplan
Roots Manuva
Theo Parrish
Kevin Saunderson


#18

Nice one.


#19

Allman Brothers
The Clash
Rancid
Drive By Truckers
Queen
Wilco (first few albums, not a fan of their latter stuff)
Hank Williams
Avett Brothers
KISS
U2


#20

I came close to buying their new album on vinyl over the weekend. They’re going to be playing in Cleveland with the Dropkick Murphy’s sometime in August too.

I had tickets to see them once but had to give them up as I had a midterm the same night. After the way that semester turned out, I should have just went to the show. :wink:
