The Contenders: Page 4
Unlike most of the bands on this list Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band actually made a lot of music that broke musical rules in very radical ways. Have a listen to Trout Mask Replica - Lick My Decals Off, Baby - Doc At The Radar Station - Ice Cream For Crow -... And
The last two songs on Clear Spot
They did something incredible (yes they took inspiration from The Beatles) they brought together 3 genres of music...
Pop, Rock, and Classical
something that has never been done before...
In my opinion, this is THE most original rock band ever. They brought almost everything to the table, but somehow, it just worked. Brilliant and my favorite.
Punk rock?!? What's wrong with you. These guys are terrible and incredibly far from punk rock.
Who else could blend a violin into punk rock?
I gotta say that they don't deserve top 10 in terms of having a distinct sound yet they are quite distinct but there is too much competition but surely should be in top 50 and one of the best live performances you'll ever see but they are uniquely British sound that does not translate to all other palates like AmericaV 1 Comment
Pioners in indie folk and indie rock music, their lyrics and instrumentation make them one of the most memorable and original bands of all time
The strokes had an incredibly distinctive sound that could not be confused with any other group but in their last album their sound change 180° to an 80s synthesised rock sound from a very New York crunchy guitar 4/4 beat rock 'n' roll sound but both distinctive in their own rights but less distinct in the new experimental album
These people made nerd rock.
They really helped the pop punk genre grow
Fused country & rock & vocal harmony to perfection before anyone else. Changed the face of country forever but none that have followed match their mainstream appeal or influence. And #1 selling album of last century. From "Take it Easy" to "Hotel California" they had it all.
Definitely hybrid band one of the greatest bands in the history of music, not just the pinion but actual fact and their catalogue is absolutely loaded and a very very distinctive sound
Falling in Reverse is the most amazing band ever
This is the most original rock band of the 70s!
ELP's concerts was so amazing!
Saviors of rock n roll today
Modest mouse is a really good and original band. 30 seconds to mars is not original, so why are they on this list? - Imreallyboredrightnow
