Most underrated band here. So many after them wouldn't even exist (see Killers, Kings of Leon, etc). As important at Nirvana to rock, but a better band overall.

70The Talking Heads

They belong on this list. Top 20 at minimum. The punk leaders of the punk era. The Stop Making Sense your still one of the best shows I have seen out of the 200 I've been to. Maybe not THE best but certainly ground breaking.

Top ten for me. This music sounds just as good today as when it was released. I hear their sound in LOTS of current bands.

Korn is such a wonderful and cool and amazing band. Johnathan Davis knows how to rock the nation! He's an inspiration and a leader in this messed up world. He was bullied and beaten in high school, and a lot of his songs are about the traumatic experiences he suffered from those evil teenage bullies. Korn should be in the top 3 along with Evanescence and Paramore!

75Operation Ivy
76Bad Brains
