Houston Motherfucking Texas

Houston has a ton of "almost big" bands and musicians. I will try to mention some of the biggest I am familiar with


DJ Premier is from Houston, and Gangstarr was highly influential with their/his beats
Geto Boys - They scared the wanna-be gansta's with tales of true horror in the ghetto. Their shit is scary to this day. makes NWA look like the poser fucks they were Scarface is the most under-appreciated MC of all time.
DJ Screw - Took the syrup scene national, inspired countless imitators.

DRI - Originally from Houston (back when they were hardcore, not metal) and their first record set the tone for so many other fast-ass hardcore/thrash bands.
Pain Teens - One of the early experimental/industrial bands to really scare folks around Houston.
ZZ Top - classic swamp boogie. Untouchable.
Red Crayola - Psychedelic freakouts from way back, influenced many, not too known though
Jandek - Maybe THE outsider artist of the last 30 years?
Charalambides - Freakfolkscuzzrock .
Kings X - melodic power metal.
Kenny Rogers - did he get to fuck Dolly Parton?
Clint Black - Huge country star.
Lyle Lovett - He bones Julia Roberts, til he realized she was crazy.
Beyonce/Destiny's Child -...
Lightnin' Hopkins - Blues, baby. Blues.
Albert Collins - guitarist of the blues, extraordinaire
