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.

102 Benny Goodman

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

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
