Top 10 Most Creative Music Artists and Bands
The Top Ten
Is there the slightest doubt that they are the most deserving of the number one spot on this list? They put in so much effort into making all of their songs creative and to express areas of human life in spectacular beauty utilizing the power of music to their advantage of expressing what they have to say through the song. Wikipedia also tells that they had put in a lot of creative effort in producing the Dark Side of The Moon and at some point of time, they had to drop off and disband because of fear of loss of creativity which means to say that they always wanted their music to be flawless. But they never stopped and they've released the most memorable tracks we know today. Compared to artists like The Beatles and overrated modern pop artists, Pink Floyd hasn't gotten the recognition it most deservedly needed.
Of course Pink Floyd is they mastered the art of psychedelia through music and every album is different and has a distinctive sound. They have great studio experimentation. The best live light and laser shows. Awesome concept album ideas. And lets not forget the 3rd best selling album of all time witch stayed on the charts for nearly 29 years which broke a record for the album to stay longest on the charts. And lets not forget Syd Barret people (R.I.P Syd Barret and Rick Wright)
Every Pink Floyd Albums are distinctive and original.Their music have great bass foundation, tremendous dynamics while some of the most interesting music belies in subtle and more quiet messages. Roger Waters' lyrics should have earned him Noble prize for literature (Bob Dylan is good also). After hearing thousands of times, I can still find something new and fresh. If you are for timeless music... there is no other band than Pink Floyd.
How did they think of things like Interstellar Overdrive, Atom Heart Mother Suite, And Echoes? Incredible to say the least
How is Pink Floyd more creative than Queen? One can not even count the genres Queen played and they change their style midway in a song to embrace many styles in one song. How can PF at all compare. Beatles can but they wrote many childiah songs.
Just listen to Who Needs You, Sleeping on the Sidewalk, Dreamers Ball, More of that Jazz, Sheer Heart Attack, Staying Power in order. You will understand. Of course there are lots of better songs, but these are more explanatory.
Combine opera with rock is the most creative thing in music!
"Bohemian Rhapsody" is the most creative song ever.
It may be one of Queen's most popular songs, and it is admittedly great, but if you dig deeper you can find even more creative songs such as my favorite Queen song, March of the Black Queen. As for the most creative song ever, my vote might have to go to Pink Floyd's Echoes, but there may be even more creative songs I have never heard.
Pink Floyd wouldn't have made "Echoes" if not for The Beatles Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's, and Magical Mystery Tour. Queen would not have made Bohemian Rhapsody if not for You Never Give Me Your Money.
Their music wasn't confined to a single or couple of genres. It was more diverse and versatile. Beginning with the Mersey-beat and Rock n roll, their stretched it to folk, psychedelic and even classical and what not. The fact that they chose to include sitar(Love You To, Within You Without You) and sound of moving tapes in "Tomorrow Never Knows" or even re-imagining music as another band(in Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band). It was altogether a perfectly synced quartet.
The beatles had a tremendous amount of creativity. There music and CREATIVITY had the biggest effect on music history. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were brilliant in there creativity during the writing of the songs they wrote. The Beatles have the best creativity of all time for any band anywhere. They are #1
"I am the walrus " is probably the most creative song ever!
I love Lorde but David Bowie should be higher. David has been the inspiration to many.
Songs are super unique and one of a kind. Listen to Green Light, Magnets, Yellow Flicker Beat, Homemade Dynamite... Yeah.
She's one of my favorite mainstream artists because she reminds me of the days music wasn't luxury brag.
Her sound was so fresh at the time ,she is exactly what pop music needed
Melanie is extremely creative. Who else has a song called Play Date, Mrs Potato Head, and Pity Party? Child-like topics with adult meanings. Her album, Crybaby is a story about a poor girl.
Finally. I've been waiting my entire life for Melanie to be in the top ten of something, and here it is.
I know she's better than ANYONE else.
From Cry Baby.
The fact that she is even on the same page as The Beatles, The Who, and Bob Dylan, much less AHEAD of them, means the world is coming to an end soon.
She puts out dark music disguised so beautifully and talks about our society now
Best rapper ever
Besides creating many great songs and mixing and crossing genres, Dylan records and performs in concert several very different versions of nearly all of his songs. He's constantly altering and rearranging, and it takes some excellent musicians to support him on tours and keep up with these changes, often from one show to the next.
Yeah I agree with @Billyv.Bob Dylan's voice may not be great but his songs are great especially the lyrics.he is a creative artist.
I mean, I still have yet find a band that does music similar to the Progressive Alternative Metal that Tool does.
One of the most creative metal bands for sure.
HER VOICE IS SO EMOTIONAL HOW NDIQJABIDHBIWBHW
I would quote a visitor comment on another list because I can't say it better: "A genius that merged classical music and rock with a guitar... Pure Genius."
What he did became the template for metal music (except some small subgenres like doom).
"Pure Genius" I like that phrase @Metal_Treasure,ritchie blackmore is a great guitarist.his solos are fast and heavy.he is the creator of heavy metal music.
Best band ever these guys are very creative!
Creative as they get. Every song is a new genre. Their most recent album blurry face has rock music, pop music, rap music, piano music, sad music, happy music, etc etc all in 14 songs. Impressive if you ask me.
People like to say they aren't actually creative, but I'd say they are creative because they make popular music that isn't just "I have a big butt, tons of money, I like sex, etc."
Every song is a take on a different genre. They have a sound that is unique to them but each song sounds nothing like anything else ever made.
I have never heard a band like Twenty One Pilots, they definitely stand out
I was expecting to see Radiohead in the top 5, but they’re definitely the most creative band of all time. The transformation they’ve made from Pablo Honey through to A Moon Shaped Pool is astonishing. Every album is unique and breath takingly beautiful.
This is one that needs no explaining
No explanation needed.
Creator of metal
25th? Seriously? The Who are literally the most creative band ever, apart from Pink Floyd.
