    So i was watching this show the other day on VH1 and they were doing a countdown of the 100 greatest artists of all time. What a joke! They left out some excellent talent and had names way higher on the list than there should have been. I found the list so here it is. NOTE...this is not my list, it was composed by VH1.

    30 Aerosmith
    29 Radiohead
    28 Elton John
    27 Aretha Franklin
    26 Neil Young
    25 Chuck Berry
    24 The Velvet Underground
    23 AC/DC
    22 The Clash
    21 Bruce Springsteen
    20 Marvin Gaye
    19 U2
    18 Pink Floyd
    17 Queen
    16 Madonna
    15 The Beach Boys
    14 Nirvana
    13 The Who
    12 David Bowie
    11 Bob Marley
    10 Stevie Wonder

    06 Jimi Hendrix
    05 Bob Dylan
    04 Rolling Stones
    03 Led Zeppelin
    02 Michael Jackson
    01 The Beatles

    Now Journey at #96? With Justin Timberlake and Public Enemy way higher. Don't get me wrong they are very good and have sold millions of records but really? And where's Hank Williams Jr., Foreigner, Garth Brooks, ZZ Top, and Bon Jovi just to name a few who failed to make the list. But i do think the top 10 is pretty right on. Anyways, thought the list could use some better artists. What do you think?

    Tell me about it....Coldplay and Joni Mithell better than Skynard! Joni who? The list is on VH1's site. I just googled it and it took me there. I hope other artists didn't make this list.

    At least it isn't the top 100 bro bands. It would only consist of KMK and ICP.

    You all need to check out some Soilwork, Sonic Syndicate, and slipknot.

    Metal is where its at.
