That list had some interesting stuff on it... and some odd ommissions. You could tell that the list was from a modern rock station, because the other time i saw a list like that, #1 was when John met Paul (The Beatles). I'm not even a fan of there's but you can't deny the importance of that occurance. It's not even on there. I could talk about a bunch of them, but i'll just let it be.

obviously modern rock..

they missed out alot...

61. Kraftwerk releases "Autobahn." <--- thats right!

they seem to think highly of nirvana.. don't get me wrong, nirvana did alot for rock as we know it, but so did the beatles, led zeppelin, bob dylan.. each almost made up a new version of rock.

those are just examples. music wouldn't be what we know it without the little bands.
