100. Alicia Keys

You guys love lists, and we love to start our holiday weekend early, so thanks VH1 for putting together this 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time countdown. (Spoiler Alert: No Wavves…) You should compare it to VH1′s 100 Greatest Artists Of Rock & Roll from 1998 (back when VH1 was VH-1) to see some of the overlaps/differences. For starters: The Top 5 “Rock” vs “Of All Time” is the same group, except for Jimi Hendrix who’s been pushed to No. 6. It’ll also give you an idea of how VH1 defines rock & roll. And how much it sucks to be the Eagles. Trivia: Which artist has drunkenly crashed his car the most times? Highest ranked artist to be pelted with plastic bottles? Did Biggie beat Tupac? Which version of Journey made it? But it’s not all about long-suffering has-beens: I, for one, am happy for Def Leppard.

Music suggestions needed

2011-01-11 21:22:10 by Timmahh

I have a hard drive with 74,000 files on it. Soundtracks, pop, rock, country, classical, hard rock, disco, heavy metal, thrash, folk, R&B, etc. You name it I may have it. I have Billboard top 100 from 1950-2002 as well.
My point is...I'm bored, and need more music. I have 7000 songs on my ipod, work from home and listen all day.
I need more suggestions for good music. No Keisha bullshit, or crap artists like her. I'm open to GOOD music...not trendy crap that relies on stupid phrases and ends up one hit wonders. Thinking music. Music where the raps are hitting to the core
