You even put them in alphabetical order...WOW.

At 10:56 PM, Blogger WordWhiz said...

I'm guessing if I nominate Clay Aiken (Measure of a Man) you'll all spend days...weeks even laughing at me, AGAIN! So I'll try to come up with something more acceptable. Sigh...

At 10:34 PM, Blogger Cherry Moon said...

Ohhh, good luck with that list! That is going to be difficult to get through!

At 1:32 PM, Blogger Mr. Drinker said...

Better than Ezra? Green Day? Jimmy Eat World? How many High Schoolers were consulted in forming this list? This is top TEN artists since 1990...I am truly appalled that some of these names even show up on this list especially when leaving out such other talented artists that have actually made an impact on music. Por ejemplo

Tori Amos (Under the Pink - 1994)
Sonic Youth (Dirty - 1992, Goo - 1990, A thousand leaves - 1998)
Butthole Surfers (Independent Worm Saloon - 1993)
The Pixies (Trompe Le Monde - 1991)
Wu Tang Clan (36 Chambers - 1993)
Notorious BIG (Ready to Die - 1994)
Soundgarden (Badmotorfinger - 1991)
The Cure (Wish - 1992)
Sarah mcLachlan (Fumbling Towards Ectasy - 1995)
Neil Young (Harvest Moon - 1992)
Buddy Guy (Damn Right I've got the Blues - 1991)
Faith No More (Angel Dust - 1992)

This list can really go on so much further...but I think I have made my point. To put "Better than Ezra" & "Jimmy Eat World" in the same top ten artist lists such as these, are crimes against musical identities. Like stealing your ATM card and buying EVERY Indigo girl record ever made. Please Hof, by the beard of Zeus, take this into careful condsideration when you narrow this down.

shouldn't you be whittling away now dear sir?

At 11:39 PM, Blogger Dan said...

I will actually agree with Drinker. And I Can't believe I forgot my girl Tori. Well Played, Drinker. Well. Played.
Remonds me of when I was younger and my local newspaper interviewed people as to who they thought were the most influential artists of our time, and Zepplin and Uncle Kraker (who? Exactly.) were both on the list. Sigh.

At 12:14 AM, Blogger Cyrus said...

I totally understand Drinker's outrage and I'm a little miffed at myself for neglecting Sarah and Tori (Amos - not Spelling). I certainly would have included Sonic Youth, The Cure and The Pixies had the rules not stated: "The only requirement for consideration the artist's FIRST album had to be released in or after 1990."

I'm just sayin' is all.

At 5:44 PM, Blogger Dragonfly said...

Sarah McLachlan's - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy although a FANTASTIC and insanely great album is NOT her debut album... That would be her album, Touch released in either 88 or 89... (sorry Mr. Drinker.

But I agree.. Alannis Morissette's JLP is a great album. Worthy of mention.

At 7:41 PM, Blogger VegasGustan said...

Mr. Drinker: I will give you Better Than Ezra and Jimmy Eat World as a bit strange, but they were put on in reference to their entire cataloge...NOT THEIR SINGLES...which I agree are very high schoolerish (new word...woot). "The Middle" by J.E.W. is fun, but nothing of merit or deepness. Most of BTE's singles have been bubble gum too, but they are a band that are still around and making good music when a number of the bands from the mid 90s have long since given up. My top ten bands of all time would not include Better Than Ezra and would certainly include The Cure in the top five.

If you have not listened to every last song that have released, you can't fully make an argument.

At 7:50 PM, Blogger VegasGustan said...

And just in case anyone cares.....
Here are some artists that I would have put on the list if not for the rules.

The Cure
The Clash
Violent Femmes

I am sure I would have more, but those names came right out.

Is that any better?

At 10:00 AM, Blogger Mr. Drinker said...

When making this list in my rage I neglected the rules...figures. I do have more to add though, and I will do so when not so swamped at work.

Dan - How can anyone forget Tori? She is a "talent" and her music and lyrics inspire one to really reach down inside themselves. When I first heard her, I was blown away. Not by just her playing, but her passion.

note:"touch" was released in '89, so my bad.

vegasgustan - didn't mean to explode like that, but, while Better Than Ezra & Jimmy Eat World may put out decent "pop hits", I don't necessarily think that puts them as any type of musical force the past 15 years. To me, KORN has had more of an influence that them musically. Now, while not even being a huge Korn fan, they have a more impressive catalog then them both combined. But again, I don't mean to downplay your submittions. Just my opinion, and I get a little over-excited, especially when it comes to music.


At 10:41 AM, Blogger Mr. Drinker said...

I do have at least 2 more I can think of off the top of my head. Artists who have majorily influenced what is coming out today and tomorrow.

Pavement (Slanted & Enchanted - 1992)
My bloody Valentine (Glider - 1990)

At 11:23 AM, Blogger Dan said...

OOOH!!! I know it's a million years after the deadline, but I'd like to point out that, while she only produced one album, and then went batshit Cruise-azy, that one album has had some freaking LEGS, and has endured as simply kickass. Plus, homegirl starred in Sister Act II.

Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

At 9:29 AM, Blogger Mr. Drinker said...

As per our conversation...PANTERA has to be considered...

At 11:20 AM, Blogger Mr. Drinker said...

You also CAN'T deny this as well...

The Verve (A Storm in Heaven - 1993)

I know that people might not be familiar with them, but I can tell you that out of almost any band from the 90's they have the most impressive catalog as well as style. NO one is like them, and certainly of the the UK's best artists.
