Well, I'm not really a musician aside from singing in church choir, so I can only reply as to how musicians have influenced me personally. They are:

1. U2
2. Bruce Springsteen

Least influential? Hair metal (please don't ever let it make a comeback), boy bands, Brittney and all her clones, rap (just don't care for it), and Creed and all the blah hard rock bands like them.

A bit of a contradiction isn't it?
First you name an artist least influentialand after that you name their imitations------> which probably are quit few so they did have some influence and probably aren't the least influential artists after all. They may not make new, refreshing, original or good music, but they surely had their influence, whether you like it or not.

One of my personal favorite of most influential artists ever:

Kraftwerk

Least Influential:

"Eig & Eibig", some no-talented band that existed for 8 months, played a total of 2 very bad and short gigs and drank loads of beer. It was the only band I've ever been in, i was the lead "talker-singer-yeller-rapper-making-sounds-with-his-throat-guy"

most influential - Lindsey Buckingham
least influential - the rest
