Top Ten Bands and Artists You'll Always Find in The Bargain Bin in Stores or Charity Shops

I love flicking through the CDs in charity shops and always amuses me to keep finding the same bands and artists that people have given up on but I can hardly ever find the genre or artist / band I'm looking for. Feel free to add any of your own band or artist you'd gladly give to charity or vote for an existing item you agree with.

Mostly because the original owners have passed on, and the younger heirs may not be fans, so they are donated.

It hurts me to add this man because I love his songs so much. But it is fair to say that his CDs will always be found lurking somewhere among others (more deservedly) mentioned in this list. - Britgirl
