    100. The Clash (112 points)
    Voted By: Floria, tdc2000, android, Blondini
    Key albums: The Clash (1977), London Calling (1979), Sandinista! (1980), Combat Rock (1982)
    Key tracks: "I Fought The Law", "London Calling", "Police And Thieves", "Rock The Casbah", "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", "This Is Radio Clash", "Train In Vain (Stand By Me)", "White Riot"



    While The Sex Pistols were the more notorious UK punk band to emerge in the 70's, it was The Clash who persevered and reached a wider audience. With their political anthems as well as how great the pairing of lead singer Joe Strummer and guitarist Mick Jones was, The Clash continues to court new generations who discover their magnum opus London Calling (cited by Rolling Stone as the best album of the 1980's, even though it came out in 1979) every year.

    Over 400 artists received votes. The 100 "runners up" will also be listed.

    200. N.W.A. (45 points)
    Voted By: Lehmann

    One of the most influential bands in hip hop history, launching the careers of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy-E. A little surprising they had only one voter since several rappers got multiple votes.

    199. Smashing Pumpkins (45 points)
    Voted By: Blondini

    Billy Corgan's band that ruled the 90's alternative scene. Although many might've forgotten their debut album was in 1991 as 1993's "Siamese Dream" broke them big. Still making music, currently in a long set of vinyl ep's.

    The Clash are a very great way of starting this list off - a truly legendary act.

    NWA are legends of rap - but I don't know much of their stuff. Pumpkins were classic 90s rock, but again I don't really know their stuff.

    Missed the deadline for this, despite John PM-ing me, but I was either out or at work every evening in the last 2 weeks...

    The Clash are one of the acts who will suffer because of that, as they'd have been in my votes, absolutely classic act.

    Smashing Pumpkings IMO are a bit overrated. NWA - racist boring crap.
    Let's have a second referendum

    SP's Gish was a 1991 album - they were around same time as Nirvana and Hole.

    Can't believe i forgot a MAJOR pop duo and robbed them of 40 points. (their singer is to blame for being an absolute bore in her old age).

    Is the other half in a new supergroup with Mick Jagger and Joss Stone and recently produced an album for Stevie Nicks? If so, they're to come in the top 100

    I love London Calling, The Clash would've made my list had it been a 100.

    N.W.A. isn't my thing at all but I accept their importance and how they along with Public Enemy pretty much changed hip hop music forever.

    Smashing Pumpkins have been hit and miss with me. I loved the first three albums, got bored when Corgan decided he wanted to be Mr. Goth, but some of the recent music is surprisingly good.

    For years I was her only fan here, so its nice to present


    99. Yoko Ono (113 points)
    Voted By: NothingFails, crazycrazy, Vindrag
    Key albums: Yoko Ono And Plastic Ono Band (1970), Fly (1971), Approximately Infinite Universe (1973), Season Of Glass (1981), Rising (1995)
    Key tracks: "Approximately Infinite Universe", "Death Of Samantha", "Don't Worry Kyoko, Mummy's Looking For Her Hand In The Snow", "Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him", "Hell In Paradise", "Kiss Kiss Kiss", "Move On Fast", "No No No", "Walking On Thin Ice"



    Controversial amongst many Beatles fans, and known by many more just for being the title of one of her songs, "Mrs. Lennon". Yoko Ono has amassed a small but loyal cult following in her forty-plus year career. While her earliest recordings alienated her from ever achieving mass success due to the experimental nature of her music and giving her a typecast image that people hold against her music to this day, Yoko ventured into more straight-ahead singer songwriter music by 1973 and recorded some of the strongest music of her career. The early 80's saw heightened commercial success for her as she coped with Lennon's murder on record. Recordings since have been sporatic but whenever she does come back, her fans enjoy it. In the past ten years she's found the most unlikely source of success with the dance chart, as she's remixed many of her classic songs and the remixes are bringing her the success the songs should've had decades ago.

    198. Laurie Anderson (45 points)
    Voted By: Crazycrazy, Vindrag

    One of the most successful performance artists of all time. Laurie achieved surprising success in 1981 with the UK #2 hit "O Superman", probably one of the most minimalistic and least radio-friendly records to ever get airplay. Since then she's continued to make challenging and interesting records.

    197. Baccara (46 points)
    Voted By: AlexZ

    Spanish duo best known for their 1977 smash "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie". I know very little else about them, but they originally made two lists before Remiell sent a revised chart in.
