Thanks for the patience, back on track now so look out <img> The ranking is based solely on scores provided by members, I could have gotten fancy and put them thru my amazing math machine but that would take even more time <img> Agree the music mags could learn something from this kind of fan poll, but doubt they will as it doesn’t pay for them to cater to the indie crowd as much as it used to <img> The rest of the list features a lot of tied scores, we are a very eclectic bunch with an amazing & varied bunch of influential bands…very cool. So thanks for responding and heres the list…

11. Who, Pearl Jam, Songs Ohio, Hendrix, Minutemen…all 10 (1) Grateful Dead, Public Enemy 10 (2)
