Coldplay should be 3rd like in the on site list, don't know how the hell they're so low, how are the white stripes higher than them? What is wrong with you people?


White Stripes were important for the Garage Rock Revival, whereas Coldplay just jumped aboard the Radiohead express, only way duller and way poppier. Saying they should be in the top 3 implies they should be ahead said Radiohead which is just a bazillion kinds of wrong

Yeah, I think Coldplay is fine at #9. I see the criteria breaking down for them like this: they do very well in popularity, but some artists ahead of them do even better, they're critically acclaimed, but some artists ahead of them are more so, and they have little influence or cultural impact.

If the list considers the whole world and not just USA, I don't think Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Missy Elliott should be in the top-10.
Shakira, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, and Bon Jovi should probably be top-100.
Sugababes, Depeche Mode, Oasis, Iron Maiden, Dido, Rammstein, R.E.M., and Anastacia might be outside the top-100 be should at least be considered.

I know it's been questioned, but could you explain why Kanye is #2? I'd think Radiohead, Jay-Z, or Outkast would be higher. Not that I'm calling for change.

Jay-Z and Radiohead both suffer from part of their body of work being 90s, particularly since Jay-Z's most important album was released in the 90s. his influence draws from that much more than his 00s work.

Kanye is the only other artist besides Eminem who is top tier in every part of the criteria. everyone else on the list has at least one weak spot. less popularity or no cultural impact or lessened influence or whatever. Kanye is pretty much top 10 in every part of the criteria.

Gotcha. Love his music anyway, so you won't hear any qualms from me.

to be clear, this is for the decade 00-09, not for everything after 2000. anything released in 2010 or 2011 won't matter here.

It was huge. It was like #37 on the Mainstream Rock chart for a whole week.
