I don't know...
I'd go... Best musicians
The Smashing Pumpkins/Zwan "I can say zwan cause I've actually seen them live three times now. and I'm a chicago kid so I gotta represent"
Does Bob Marley and the Wailers count?
The Beatles "at times i'll explain"
Public Enemy "greatest rap group ever IMO"
Most Influencial Bands
Rage Against the Machine "They really the group that spurred on this rap rock garbage "although Rage did it right IMO" that everyone seems to do now. Yet none of these current bands could hold a candle to RATM."
The Roots "is it me or does every hip hop group dropped the drum machine and decided to go and tour with a actual band? The roots started this."
Beatles "no brainer there"
Nirvana "again no brainer"
The Beastie Boys "really paved the way for white kids to rap"
Bands I hate
Aerosmith "is it me or does every song they have made over the at least 15 years sound exactly the same with different lyrics?"
Rolling Stones "Never been a fan of them. Their first hit wasn't written by them and my favorite stones song was a cover"
The Beatles "It depends they wrote some seriously great music but they also wrote some really dumbass ass shit that's why."
There are many others that I like and dislike but it would take me days to discuss all of that.
