Lakes Top 15 Artists

yes, i stole this from b4k. no, i do not care. these are my 15 favorite artists at the moment according to and my whims.
15Tegan and Sara

New pick 9.20.10
Very, very awesome indie pop catchyness from identical twin sisters that are both lesbians. Their last three albums are consecutively better than the ones preceeding them.

Spacey, progressive rock that takes you places.
13Paul Simon

Graceland is one of the best albums of all time. Man is one of the best songwriters ever.

Blue Album and Pinkerton are masterpieces of alternative rock that the band themselves were never able to again replicate, although most of their 2000s output is enjoyable to an extent, save Make Believe and Raditude.

Ramones got me into music way back four years ago. Their self titled was the first album I ever listened to all the way through, and accumulated hundreds of plays on my old mp3 player.
10Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

Recent discovery, and already climbing the ranks. Aeroplane is superior to the Beatles' entire discography, and I'm not joking. Rush is also tied for the position of my #10 band.
9Joanna Newsom

Innovating folk and making beautiful music like no one else.
8The National
High Violet

Beautiful, mournful indie rock that never fails to leave an impact.
7House of Heroes
The End is Not The End

Pop punk done right.
6Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" is easily one of the best songs ever, Paul Simon is a genius, etc.
5The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds

Pet Sounds and Sunflower are nearly as phenomenal as the Beatles' top three albums (Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper, Revolver).
4 The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

The most influential band of all time. Enough said.
Straight Up

Badfinger are always overlooked and unfavorably compared to the Beatles, but their early 70s output was nearly on par with any Beatles album. Straight Up and Wish You Were Here are their magnum opuses and essential pieces of classic rock.
2Barenaked Ladies

Musical and comedic gold that never fails to make me happy, BNL are one of the bands that has had a lasting impact on me. "If I Had $1,000,000" still gets me nostalgic for pre-K.
1Bob Dylan
Blood on the Tracks

The brilliant poet of his generation, Dylan defines folk and even music as a whole for me. His music never fails to reach trancendent levels, and never more so than on Blood on the Tracks.
