Amazing guy, he has literacy changed my life and my musical taste when I first discovered him! Love his work from old to new.
I don't know what it is. I just love Beck, he's genius. -
A highly proficient guitarist, anti-drug, anti-censorship and anti any thing that made him PO. Worked with mostly the best musicians of the day. He is an 'original' music artist in the best sense of the word. he took his craft seriously and had fun at the same time. Could he be called a Modern Classical composer like Phillip Glass and Terry Riley? -
He made an impression on all kinds of music
Interesting lyrics, interesting vocals and very few like her. -
She is one of the best musicians out there and artists.V 1 Comment
Listening to Michael Jackson songs today makes me believe the way his music sounds was totally different to what was considered pop at the time. He totally reinvented it by making it so much different.
His melodies were completely unique and flowed almost perfectly. People are still borrowing ideas and quirks from Michael to this day. A true legend.
This is the guy who created Billie Jean! THRILLER! He single handly created POP!
The most unique, incredible, original, creative band to ever live. So underrated. The best band, not only to the 90's but of all time. There is no comparison. This is where music should just give up no one will ever be as good as tool. theyre to intelligent nd musically inclined to match. It might seem like I'm taking this kind of far but I don't think so. Best Band EVER
The start of the end when it comes to metal, but despite what some people say, this is a very clever and quite a consistently great band. -
There is a reason they're high on everyone's list, it's because they're awesome. -
Definitely Radiohead. Grunge, arena rock, prog, electronica, ambient, jazz, krautrock, and rhythm all in one band.
Very unique sound. Damon Albarn is very creative and free with the Gorillaz, which is uniquely accompanied by Jamie Hewlett's original art style.
This band is just unique as hell. Using animated characters, it's hard not to pay attention to their zombie pop like style
Nothing else sounds like them, all of their songs sound different, and they mix genres together in a way that works.
One of my favorite bandsV 2 Comments
His songs have interesting lyrics that sometimes have a double meaning to them.
His voice is unique and he has an amazing personality.
The music is catchy and Jack White is a brilliant guitarist. -
They only have 2 members but they're better than half of the stuff out today. - InsertNameHere
Very Catchy. Love "Blue Orchid"
No-one like him, in some peoples opinion that's a good thing. He's just so varied and definitely one of a kind. -V 1 Comment
The creators of nu metal.
I know what you're thinking but when he started no-one did what he did and he changed the face of music forever. For that reason he's here. -
One does not simply get more original than Bungle. All of Mike Patton's other projects are 29 times more original than any of the other artists on this list.
He's the greatest guitar player that ever lived and has his very own distinctive style of playing music.
Just listen to his control of the guitar and you'll see. -V 1 Comment
She's very good. Kind of like a female David Bowie, in the art rock sense, doing music for the music and whatnot.
Interesting lyrics, interesting vocals and very few like her. This may or may not have been copied. -
Varying styles and the way he used the 'wrong' chords is great. -
