STP over Mudhoney imo. STP may not have the critical acclaim Mudhoney has (or has acquired) but their popularity alone puts them ahead of Mudhoney. Btw, can we include acclaim into the criteria? Or at least have it as a tie breaker or something?

Acclaim isn't in the criteria? It should be.

New revision on the front page.

I have added the following 15 artists: Tori Amos (#65), Fiona Apple (#131), The Alarm (#161), Fall Out Boy (#165), Soul Asylum (#168), The Lemonheads (#173), Slowdive (#177), Broadcast (#184), Juliana Hatfield (#185), Sinéad O'Connor (#188), Blind Melon (#190), The Black Keys (#195), Cap'n Jazz (#196), Buffalo Tom (#199), and Miracle Legion (#200)

I have removed 13 artists, most notably Phish, Interpol and Ben Harper. The remaining 2 spaces that resulted in 15 additions are the results of removed duplicates in the list

Several artists have moved up significantly, with Redd Kross, The dB's, Let's Active, and Liz Phair being the most significant increases. All four of these artists have moved from the 150-200 range into the Top 100 (they should have been higher than they were in the first place).

Any suggestions or recommendations?

Lew has already been PMed this revision, as it corrects some typos and mistakes in the original one, but it would be easy to send him another one with you guys' input once this one has been posted.

Faith No More was on the list. I have no clue what happened there.

EDIT: Alright, done. Kicked Bright Eyes off the list and added Faith No More at number 91. Fiona Apple and Sunny Day Real Estate also received bumps. At The Drive-In has been added at number 193 as well.

My next revision will probably find a place for Sloan on here, perhaps in the place of Mercury Rev (but with a higher position).

man i was all ready to just burn this mother down over Arcade Fire being above Dinosaur Jr./Pearl Jam/etc... then i realized i was looking at the old list. came here to see all bands in question are accurately placed. could see PJ Harvey being a bit higher, but that's it. good list.


still don't get the whole David Bowie-as-alternative-Elvis thing. VU, The Stooges, and Neil Young seem like more obvious ones to me. but its all subjective. btw, where is Neil on that list? SY, Dinosaur Jr, PJ, Nirvana, Pixies, Radiohead, etc. how many Neil disciples can be in the top 30 without him being considered a major influence?

I don't see LCD Soundsystem on either main list or influence list. That is wrong. Other than that, Pave is right, this update is awesome. But I'd say Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Arctic Monkeys look a bit low. Surely they had a significant impact in early-to-mid '00s
