    Well, the list is from a leading member of a band from New York that was quite influential itself, a band that started at about the same time as Sonic Youth….

    I mailed my own list to AGAP, I might dig that mail up from somewhere out of my Outlook-vaults and post it here sometime later….

    i don’t understand…is this supposed to be the most influential bands to you personally or on a more broader scale. my list corresponds to the former.

    in the first post allison says ‘most influential bands in your world’. and its supposed to be in order, which some people aren’t doing. i don’t mean to be a hard-on about this, but isnt the point of this thread to eventually tally up what bands are most influential to each individual poster…the whole point system thing allison explained?

    Whoops… forgot there was going to be a rating system in place. Please feel free to give all of my entries either ten points apiece or one point apiece to solve the problem. I am not putting one over the other only for the simple fact that I cannot and hesitate to say which has had a bigger influence on me. I hope this doesn’t sound like a smart-ass solution, but I think Allison knows me well enough to understand where I am coming from. Sorry to those of you who are confused or put off.

    Deviant to the end,
    Tom

    Hey,

    This is supposed to be a list of the most influential bands in your world, ones that changed your music experience in that oh so cool way. I know its hard to limit it to ten, god I could have put at least 50 without taking a breath <img> But if people feel their top ten fav is their most influential…cool with me as well.

    So all deviant type lists are cool with me, although when I do the tallying up of scores my deviant side may skew the ratings by giving scores to my side of the deal <img> <img> <img> Like freud said woman shouldn’t be given positions of power, they will always please themselves first…we can’t be trusted <img> <img> <img>

    Cool lists so far, gotta love the similarities and differences. Looking forward to the final list, no doubt will be a pretty cool thing <img>

    Very well, madam. I have let the Freud references pass before in good faith. Now you have forced me to break out the Dalai Lama of Misogyny: Yes, Mr. John Milton!!!!!!!

    "Would thou hadst heark’n’d to my words, and stay’d
    with me, as I besought thee, when that strange
    Desire of wand’ring this unhappy Morn,
    I know not whence possess’d thee: we had then
    Remain’s still happy, not as now, despoil’d
    Of all our good, sham’s naked, miserable.
    Let none henceforth seek needless cause to give proof of Their Faith’s obligation to possess;
    when they earnestly seek such proof, conclude, they then begin to fail."

    Paradise Lost, Book 9 lines
    1134-1142
    This scene depicts Eve’s response to being blamed be Adam for dooming mankind. The essence of the passge follows:

    "Being as I am, why didst not thou as the Head
    command me absolutely not to go
    Going into such danger as thou said’st?
    Too permissive then thou didst not much gainsay,
    Nay, didst permit, approve, and fair dismiss.
    Hadst thou been firm and fixt in thy dissent,
    Neither had I transgress’s nor thou with mee.

    Book 9 lines 1155-1162

    In other words, Allison, go ahead amd lop off my list at Marley. However I still want votes of some sort on the rest. "Hie! get thee to thy matter at hand!!!"

    hehehe

    Seems people have forgotten my contempt for mr freud and his spin on women… <img>

    I’m reading a pretty silly book right now, but somehow it seems relevant to this latest twist in things…Temptresses The Virago Book of Evil Women. Talks about powerful, "evil women", how cultures thru time have dealt with them, persecuted them, labelled them witches and fiends. How men find them terrifying and fascinating, while woman secretly admire their powerful image of mother and demon-the creative and destructive. (books description not mine) Like I said silly book but oddly hypnotizing <img> <img> <img>

    So all I’m saying is try hard to put numbers to your list or I will just randomly assign numbers. I always show my work though <img>

    Allison…evil powerful female

    ps you guys ever heard The Cramps song All Women Are Bad… <img>

    el jesus– the reason not many people have the beatles is because this list isnt supposed to be the most influential bands of all time on a large scale, but instead the most influential bands to you personally. i guess its up to you to decide how you’ve been influenced by bands, especially if you don’t play music.

    </font><blockquote><font>quote:</font><hr><font> Like freud said woman shouldn’t be given positions of power, they will always please themselves first…we can’t be trusted </font><hr></blockquote><font>Oh yes, and men are just brimming full of altruism, tact, and integrity.

    </font><blockquote><font>quote:</font><hr><font> On one issue at least, men and women agree; they both distrust women
    (H.L. Mencken) </font><hr></blockquote><font>Not true. Some of us don’t trust anyone <img> And then there are suckers like me, who trust everyone and are very generous when it comes to doling out "the benefit of the doubt".

    So yeah, my list of most influential:

    1-Pearl Jam
    2-Tori Amos (haven’t listened to her in a while, but definitely a big impact on my perception of voice, esp. in high school…this is a strange and scarred tale for me, as many of the people who made fun of the music I liked are now fans of hers)
    3-Dinosaur Jr
    4-the Doors
    5-the Allman Brothers
    6-Fiona Apple
    7-Marilyn Manson
    8-Diamanda Galas
    9-Wu-Tang Clan
    10-Flat Duo Jets (because their music is tied to so many different ‘genres’…after hearing the Jets, I started listening to much more country, jazz, oldies, garage, and blues)

    born every minute,

    Love the Cramps, but forgot to mention them in my list, so Allison, give an extra 10 points from den Buck to the Cramps!
    (or whatever you figure out to be the right amount of points in your unique voting system)

    im suprised everyone doesnt have the beatles on thier list,

    1. The Beatles
    2. The Rolling Stones
    3. The Doors
    4. The Kinks
    5. Black Sabbath
    6. Led Zepplin
    7. David Bowie
    8. Faith No More
    9. Spinal Tap
    10. Gratefull Dead

    1. The Beatles of course theres no other choice there for me

    2. The Rolling Stones, the were the dark side of the beatles the hard rocking side and the influinced almost every rock band ever

    3. Its more Jim than the doors that influinced people to write deep meaningfull lyrics, and be a smart person not just some idiot that gets fucked up all day long (a genious that gets fucked up all day long)

    4. The Kinks, I think they were the first real punk type band even though most of there songs had a reggae type feel, but the riff to you really got me now is as punk as it gets and maybe the most recognizable riff of all time

    5. Black Sabbath, even Dinosaur Jr was influinced by sabbath, the started heavy metal and the thought of scaring people with it, every rock singer wants to as famous as Ozzy

    6. Led Zepplin there led zepplin need i say more, and its cool how there being played a lot more now because people finally realize there are references to "Lord Of The Rings" in there songs

    7. David Bowie, well his style and knack for songwriting has inspired folk singers to hard rock bands like NIN, Marilyn Manson and so forth

    8. Faith No MOre/Guns N Roses, I love faith no more and im sad that there up here because they influnced all of those rap core bands that blow ass, Guns N Roses influnced everyong in music from there Hard Rocking Riffs to there monster ballads, and they did it all well, and not to mention there awesome music videos

    9. Spinal Tap, well spinal tap plays music and writes songs they are real, they influnced a lot of bands to write songs that are fun, and to take light of the whole rock overindulgence. they influnced Foo Fighters, Tenecious D, and all those other bands that do nothing but try to make you laugh during thier videos

    10. Gratefull Dead, I hate the dead but anyone that had a following that big is definetly a big influnce towards other bands

    theres my list, Now Dinosaur/J didnt make the top 10, they would be on my top 50 though, but hey im being serious here, they just arent more influential than these bands
