So??? I still like Marley but I am just not impressed all that much with his songwriting.

Noel Gallagher is the best songwriter of the '90s.

You're retarded. You haven't listened to enough music to make that claim.

Poem Electronique - Edgard Varese

Broke open the possibilities of electronic music. Inspired Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, among others. A lot of things would be different if it weren't for this man.

Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry

Because I said so.

Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis

I don't personally care all that much for his music but you can't deny the fact that he inspired an entire generation of white boys to find soul.

Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

This is American folk music.

Mood Indigo - Duke Ellington

If there's a heaven...this is what would be playing in the waiting room. (Jesus would play the clarinet.)

Purple Haze - Hendrix

Has that "WTF IS THIS?!" factor that I'm sure everyone was asking themselves at the time.

I like Bob's older stuff better, like Three Little Birds, and Crazy Baldheads. Most of the people I know who listen to regae seem to prefer Peter Tosh, who's a little more aggressive.

Elvis is a thief, Carl Perkins did the original and was better.

You basically listened to the bands that were shoved down your throat on MTV.

Here's a list I found online. Pretty decent.

Quote:
34 Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath (1970)

A mere 30 minutes long, this was none the less the album where heavy metal was first forged. Its ponderous tempos, cod-satanic imagery (bassist Geezer Butler was a Roman Catholic and Dennis Wheatley fan), Tony Iommi's sledgehammer guitar riffs and Ozzy Osbourne's shrieking vocals all went on to define the genre and shaped most arena rock of the Seventies and Eighties.

Without this ... no Spinal Tap, no grunge or Kurt Cobain and, of course, no Osbournes.
NS

Basically reiterates what I said.

Oh, and I have to choose one song off of Kill Em All for influencing the greatest sub genre of metal ever (thrash metal). Don't know which one that would be however. Four Horsemen, Motorbreath or Seek and Destroy perhaps.
