My obsession/collection with weird charts continues. What do you reckon about this?
1 Coldplay 2 Radiohead 3 Green Day 4 The Beatles 5 Death Cab for Cutie 6 System of a Down 7 Foo Fighters 8 Gorillaz 9 The White Stripes 10 Weezer 11 Red Hot Chili Peppers 12 Nirvana 13 The Killers 14 Metallica 15 Pink Floyd 16 Beck 17 U2 18 Franz Ferdinand 19 Oasis 20 Led Zeppelin 21 Nine Inch Nails 22 The Smashing Pumpkins 23 blink-182 24 The Cure 25 Queen 26 Muse 27 Kanye West 28 The Postal Service 29 Bloc Party 30 Modest Mouse 31 David Bowie 32 Bright Eyes 33 Incubus 34 Pixies 35 R.E.M. 36 Jimmy Eat World 37 Interpol 37 The Offspring 39 Linkin Park 40 The Shins
Taken from Audioscrobbler/last.fm's weekly artist reach - ie this chart is sorted by the most popular played artists over the last 7 days from Audioscrobbler's army of thousands of well-meaning nerds, of which I am one.
Now apparently if it was down to me, the top 40 would apparently look like this:
1 Sultans of Ping F.C. 2 Blur 3 Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine 4 Radiohead 5 A 6 Art Brut 7 Kate Bush 7 Franz Ferdinand 9 frank and walters 10 Data Panik 11 ¡Forward, Russia! 12 They Might Be Giants 13 XTC 14 My Life Story 15 Coldplay 15 The Cardigans 15 British Sea Power 15 Bloc Party 19 Republica 19 Salad 21 Pulp 22 Stereolab 22 Manic Street Preachers 22 Echobelly 22 Kenickie 22 The Darling Buds 27 Ben Folds Five 27 The Clash 27 bis 27 Gorillaz 27 The Stone Roses 27 Saint Etienne 27 Marion 27 A House 35 The Divine Comedy 35 Pop Will Eat Itself 35 Super Furry Animals 35 Barenaked Ladies 35 Menswear 35 The Pipettes
how are Deathcab the fifth biggest band in the world? nobody knows them in Europe! The Beatles should be number 1 WITHOUT a doubt - based on the fact that they're the biggest band ever. Even though theyre not popular now,bands like Metallica or Kiss would still be a lot bigger than Coldplay. It seems to me you just wrote down a list of the trendiest bands in the world...
Hi, I'm sure the second list is made after a lot of thinking, but since we are talking about the whole world, I'd like to say something. I live in the other side of the planet, far away from the rock n roll scene. You guys are open to a larger variety of bands, so you can choose better according to your tastes. But if reaching out to a small country counts at all, I'd say the first list makes sense, though I wouldn't agree with the order. The Beatles, no doubt, are no 1. And other bands big over here in general? Green Day and Metallica. They're huge here. Queen, Iron Maiden, Nirvana, RHCP, Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, U2, and recently Coldplay. They all inspire our people like hell, and thats saying something. The second list...I've never had the oppurtunity to even hear some their names till now. So if my opinion counts, as far as reaching out goes....list one.
Seeing as this is the BIGGEST BAND list, I have to say the first one makes more sense. Most people don't even know the bands from the second list. I agree, Beatles should be number 1. since they ARE the biggest band ever. Led should be higher up, so should Pink Floyd, Oasis, Queen, U2, and Metallica. Green Day IS very big actually, everyone knows them, but still, they should be around the 10th mark or something. P.S. Kanye West isn't really a band, is he?
wow! you gotta be kidding me... Everyone knows U2 is the biggest band in the world. The Beatles don't count cos they're dead, Stones are not as "big" as the once were so they're out too. Blur?? get the fuck out! the chili pepers, Oasis, Coldplay, Metallica, even Nickelback are the biggest bands out there right now. Green Day too, same with the Foo Fighters
BIGGEST BANDS IS LIEK BEATLES N EAGLES N LED ZEPPELIN AND ALL THAT OLD SHIT AND THE ONLY NEW BAND THAT COMES CLOSE TO THEM IS LIKIN PARK!
DONT BELIVE ME? LOOK UP TOTAL ALBUM SALES U FUCKING DICKFUCKS?? GREENDAY LIKE FAILED AFTER DOOKIE AND ONLY GOT A LIL BIT OF RECOGNITION FOR AA BUT THERE STILL NOT SUPER POPULAR YET EVERYONE KNOWS LINKIN PARK. AND DUDE WHO WROTE THIS LIST - WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS DOING IN IT??? IM NOT SAYING THERE BAD BUT THERE MORE EXPERIMENTAL AND THERES NO CHANCE THEY ARE MORE POPULAR THEN LINKIN PARK. ALSO U FORGOT A BAND CALLED SLIPKNOT EVERYONE KNOWS THEM ADN EVEN PINK FLOYDD UR FUCKED!!!!!!
