Apart from being vaguely familiar with Hanoi Rocks, I don't know a thing about any of the music on this list. But it's nonetheless cool to have a list on so esoteric a subject. Nice job.

Should we be looking at putting this up as a page?

Thank you, I'll try to invite Smallows to this too if he is interested (another Finn from the forum).

It would be cool to have the page for this one but you admins decide it! :smile:

Oh man, I'm just about the last Finn to ask about Finnish music, but even when inspected with my feeble knowledge this list looks very accurate indeed. It doesn't favor any one genre, it takes into account popularity as well as critical acclaim, and you can tell you've given thought to the lower placements too. Must've taken you ages. Nice work, all in all!

Here's a scant few I came up with, who might have a shot:

Mikko Alatalo (the only big name that seems to be missing)
Antti Tuisku (imo deserves it more than Hanna Pakarinen as he is the most successful thing to come from Idols; has had some longevity)
Olavi Virta (this is an interesting one since I'm not 100% clear on your genre restrictions; popularity-wise should be a shoe-in)
Petri Nygård (if only to have another rap act there; not too high a pick obviously, but you can't deny the splash this guy's made; if we we're a monarch, he'd be the king right now)
Regina (this is my personal suggestion to tack on at the very end, maybe replace Haloo! Helsinki, who've had only one hit to my knowledge; it would add more variety as Regina have already achieved some sub-moderate indie faggy acclaim overseas/on Pitchfork and will most likely continue this hot winning streak of theirs by releasing a straight-up moderately received album this fall :parrot: )

If I come up with anything else, I'll let you know. And again, marvelous list. :tiphat:

Maybe Luomo/Vladislav Delay and Darude?

Do the list only consider artist that were popular in Finland? Otherwise Markoolio could be included. I think he has the record for most number-one hits in Sweden.

Thanks for comments!

Smallows, I actually got this done after 2 hours, but luckily there were Internet sources. Finnish metal bands are the hardest to rank, mostly because of their variety in general (their fans are deeply in love with them whereas critical acclaim may vary)... Good names, I'll try to rank them properly. Olavi Virta would definitely be high but I think that his style is too far away from rock and closer to tango and jazz.

Erikk, the list considers artists that were popular anywhere so Markoolio is pretty good suggestion. Darude is a good name, "Sandstorm" was huge hit.

... have to admit to a real enjoyment of Nightwish and their particular blend of metal and classical ... a truly wonderful and highly skilled band .... Take care

... and then there is their rendition of Howard Blakes "Walking in the Air."

Yes, Nightwish are extremely talented bunch. I love that cover of "Walking in the Air" too. I recommend checking out their long epic "Ghost Love Score", incredible composition:

The Who should be here. They've played in Finland before. And borders are just lines on a map, anyway.

Good list, Timi! It's nice to see HIM in the Top 20.
