Rok`n`Röl Hall Of Syg
I don´t think rock should never has put into museum or any kind of institute, but because everybody seems to think R´r HoF suck a way or another, maybe we should here make a true list of best R´N´R-artists? 20 best? One point to each of everybody´s list, I can count the points in the end. And I mean true R´N`r artists, that has made pure dirty bad ass R´N R, not a list of favourite artists. And even R´N`r came from blues, I have left away artists I think are more blues than R´N´R.

Here´s mine (not in any order, I try to put them somekind of age-order):
1. Elvis (of course)
2. Eddie Cochran
3. Chuck Berry
4. the Rolling Stones
5. the Who
6. Jimi Hendrix (If you have doubts to him, just listen his version of Johnny B. Goode)
7. Johnny Winter (more blues of course, but after Jimi & Chuck no-one else has made such a dirty version of Johnny B., also almost whole Johnny Winter And Live is just pure r`n`r, there are many rock pieces also almost his all albums)
8. Deep Purple
9. Led Zeppelin
10. Black Sabbath
11. the Stooges
12. MC5
13. New York Dolls
14. the Ramones
15. Ac/Dc
16. Damned
17. the Birthday Party
18. Sonic Youth
19. Jon Spencer
20. 22 Pistepirkko (Just have to put one Finnish band into my list, they´ve made really great, dirty R´nR).

Yeah, I know there´s many great artists missing.

To which the aliens might ask, "So, this rock n' roll thing is something only the white males of your species can do well?"

chocolate_ladyland 10.13.2014 02:38 PM

^ maybe ;)

Genteel Death 10.13.2014 02:49 PM

I've never been in contact with any males who made this sort of list or females interested in contesting them either. Not even on the internet.

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 10.13.2014 03:22 PM

Dont let the Republicans see that list, while they love white males especially who were alive in 1970s they HATE aliens yo ;)

chocolate_ladyland 10.13.2014 03:37 PM

chocolate_ladyland 10.13.2014 03:50 PM

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 10.13.2014 04:19 PM

Trolling us right?

chocolate_ladyland 10.13.2014 04:20 PM

^ no ;)

chocolate_ladyland 10.13.2014 04:25 PM

but all the trolling aside I was about to put Sleater-Kinney's last album on my list. that album fucking rocks. when I think of stereotypical rock n' roll albums I think of ones that are simple, stripped down and aggressive. I think those 20 albums are fantastic, fit the above description and I stand by them (not to mention that Jennifer Herrema, Adris Hoyos and Julie Cafritz are all involved in the making of 3 of the records).

Here´s few "not-white" great rock (loud) albums:
the Jimi Hendrix Experience: Are You Experienced
Death: ...For the Whole World to See
Bad Brains: Rock For Light
Living Color: Time´s Up
Fishbone: Give a Monkey a Brain and he´ll swear he´s the center of the universe.

As Band Called Death-document shows, there was racism behind that, the rock was so white specially in the sixties & seventies. Nowdays the colour of the skin doesn`t of course matter in rock, but as said, true rock has mostly disappeared. I just wondered why even seventies punk was mostly white? Many punks liked reaggae and was anti-racists, but still most of the known punk bands were white...

Rob Instigator 10.14.2014 08:03 AM

because musical instruments are expensive, amps are expensive, and rehearsal space is expensive?

and also because in the inner city, while white folks did punk, hispanics and African americans created Hip Hop.
