    Tough question but I'll give it a go (assuming just rock band- maybe we'll do this for other genres?):

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience
    The Minutemen
    Mission of Burma
    The New York Dolls
    Pearl Jam
    The Ramones
    Lou Reed
    R.E.M.
    The Replacements/Paul Westerberg
    Neil Young and Crazy Horse


    We're living on the edge of something big. It's a fantastic time in history to be alive.

    Jeff Buckley was only named as a solo artist because Sony insisted on it.

    He wanted the band to have a name when Grace was released.

    Great band too.

    Wow, I know a fair amount about Jeff Buckley but I never knew that! Thank you, that's very interesting!

    It was mentioned on the bonus dvd of the Grace legacy edition I think.

    Gene Bowen: I remember he talked about trying to come up with a name for the band, so that it wouldn’t just be Jeff Buckley.

    Mick Grondahl: I proposed the name Two Ninas and Jeff liked it a lot, and we all liked it. But the record company was against using another name because the Jeff Buckley name was so well known. Jeff liked the idea of a band name and that was the closest we ever came to doing it.

    The "bottom 5" was really tough to decide. I left a lot of worthy bands off this list.

    Iron Maiden
    Pearl Jam
    The Beastie Boys
    Arcade Fire
    The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    Wilco
    The Beatles
    Radiohead
    The Rolling Stones
    moe.

    OK. I need to rethink this. I have no idea how I left NOFX & The Hold Steady off this list. I say add them and bump the Beatles & Beastie Boys to confine it to acts that are currently active.

    And after seeing Cage the Elephant at Lollapalooza and then open for the Black Keys, I have a feeling they're going to creep into this list at some point.
