One of the first hardcore bands, and one of California's best. So influential!
Too much emotion & hard pounding rhythm to be put into words. Maynard James Keenan is a vocal legend, and he doesn't really care what you think.
This guy paved the way for rock, pop and of course, jazz music. If it wasnt for his Carnegie Hall concert, There would be no rock music. No he was not a rocker or a popstar but with his swing music he paved the way for more popular music genres to come. Thank this guy for everything - AlbertAngrySami

I'm almost angry that these fantastic artists are ranked so low, especially with the influence they still have on the modern culture
Why are they so low what the heckV 1 Comment
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. Without them, all of your favorite modern bands would not exist, they popularized a genre and widespread it. People give all the credit to Green Day and literally no credit to Blink-182. 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
She is such a positive examples to young girls and even boys on bullying. She also wrote a book which is like a devotional so I think she could be higher
Todd Rundgren is a highly underrated artist. He is a multi instrumentalist who literally Kills on Guitar. He would play all of the instruments on a lot of his albums. He opened new doors for music. He made 30 minute experimental pieces! He was way ahead of his time. Not to mention he produced bands such as "New York Dolls", " Hall And Oates", "Meat Loaf- he played guitar in Bat Out Of Hell also" "Cheap Trick" "XTC", and "Patti Smith". Some works to check out by him are " Something/Anything? ", "A Wizard, A True Star", " Todd", "Initiation", " Hermit of Mink Hollow", "A Capella ", " Global" "No World Order".
