Should be top 20, remember godfather of grunge? Remember buffalo springfield? Remember one of the few to never sell out for the extra bucks or fame? All the younger groups love him, like pearl Jan, foo fighters, Dave Mathews. I could name a 100 more. Revise your list!

How are they so low? They influenced bands like Sum 41, All Time Low, and New Found Glory, and tons of other modern bands many people like.

Well, I give credit to both bands because both of them did this, Green Day brought it back, and Blink-182 perfectioned it and made it go widespread and popular. - AnimeDrawer
