    Top 20 Musical Artists/Bands of all time

    All-I am a music fanatic, I enjoy everything from early rock and roll to 1980s girl pop to hard rock. There are a few genres I'm not into but I like to search out [new to me] music even if its 30+ years old. Thought with the top televison shows list going on we could have music as well. I believe some have mentioned as much. Going for 20 on here since limiting it is so tough

    Here we go!

    1 The Beatles
    2 Buddy Holly & The Crickets
    3 Big Country
    4 The Doors
    5 Pet Shop Boys
    6 Depeche Mode
    7 The Beach Boys
    8 Madonna
    9 Jefferson Airplane
    10 Oasis
    11 Kim Wilde
    12 Belinda Carlisle
    13 Pink Floyd
    14 Rick Nelson
    15 Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
    16 Misfits
    17 Stone Temple Pilots
    18 Peter & Gordon
    19 The Byrds
    20 The Rolling Stones

    Hon Mentions: Gene Vincent & His Blue Caps, Bill Haley & His Coments, Love, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead,
    Kylie Minogue, CCR, Johnny Cash & Interpol.

    There you go, I believe that is 20 artists, sorry that I added song on the last section but I separate it to 4 sections, make it easier.

    Playing a three-hour Rush show is like running a marathon while solving equations.
