Thanks for the post mikal.

I don't know about Korn though?

And the Beach Boys at #45? Pet Sounds alone should land them in the top 15.

Hey, I was just going to post this!

But here's some more about their criteria..

This is "Spin's" definitive look at 50 great bands from the 1960s forward. To qualify
the editors at "Spin" set out clear criteria, these groups had to have a roof-raising,
history-changing sound, presence, or hairstyle. They also had to clearly influence
today's music in undeniable ways. Finally, they had to be bands that spawned a
special emotional attachment to their fans.


Hairstyle?


These lists are silly anyway-but who could argue w/ The Beatles-not me.

Hey! Thanks for the info Gina! Looking at that criteria though, it still seems like U2 should be higher on that list.

That's somewhat debatable. Both Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson were competitive inspirations to one another. Rubber Soul influenced Pet Sounds which influenced Sgt. Pepper's. The Beach Boys only briefly dwelt on the same level as the Beatles.

Silly me-how could I have forgotten that?

Would that be the Beach Boys with or without John Stamos as the drummer?

just because The Beach Boys were along long enough to become god awfull terrible in the end doesn't mean you should mock them

rubber soul influenced Pet Sounds in making Brain Wilson see that he should use all of his talents to make every song on an album worthwhile and that an album is not just a collection of singles and some fillers

Wilson practically invented all of what modern music has to teach us about harmonies and inventive use of instruments + studio

I'm surprised at the absence of Nine Inch Nails from that list. Despite any personal issues I have with them, NIN deserve to be on that list before Korn.

Oh Spin. Spin. Spin. Spin. Never ceases to amuse me.

Brian Wilson is VERY talented-as are The Beach Boys.

But that Stamos thing -oh well, at least he has good taste in music.

He can only DREAM of being as gorgeous as Larry and of being half the drummer he is as well.

I agree
Korn shouldn't have been on that list though

It's nice to see Fugazi on that list! They are such a great band. But no Smashing Pumpkins? I would say that they're the best band to come out of the 90's! Man I wish they were still together!

People,people

There was never a top-something list of all time that didn't came out strange or unbelivable. Don't get so excited - next year there will be another top-20,50 or 100 bands, singers, songs or managers of all time, and than we will be saying something simillar to this right now...
