Ok /mu/ if its not the beatles who is it? Who is the most significant or influential rock band or person of the genre?
I'm not really sure, but any list has to have this murderer right near the top.
I'd say the beatles are definitely the most significant and influential. They were and are so popular its practically impossible to find a band or artist that isn't influenced by them to some degree. They also did a great job of bringing musical trends, psychedelic or otherwise into the mainstream.
If I were to pick a BEST band ever it would be swans/gira though. They have genre-defining and pioneering albums in so many different styles of music over so many years and their output is consistently fantastic
it sucks that most of the people i've had chances to make music with love them though. also kinda sucked that this 10/10 chick who liked me in hs got a beatles tattoo like right before trying to woo me
>The fact that so many beatles still name The Books as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" folktronica band ever only tells you how far folk and electronic music still is from becoming a serious art
but yeah VU
