Here’s my list of my top ten artists. Other than the top three, the rest of the list will probably change within the next month. The order, that is. The bands themselves are pretty solid.
1. Queens of the Stone Age
I remember hearing “Little Sister” for the first time when I was in elementary school. The rest is history. Sweet, undying, unfaltering history.
I don’t really need to explain this one, do I?
Coldplay has helped me through some rough times.They make me cry more than any other band. Don’t know if that’s bad or good, but hell, I love ’em.
4. Them Crooked Vultures
I don’t know if this is fair or not because they only have one album so far. But I mean, the band is made of QOTSA’s Josh Homme as vocals/guitar, Led Zeppelin’s bassist John Paul Jones, and Dave Grohl on drums. The album is absolutely incredible. There isn’t a song I don’t love by these guys.
5. The Tragically Hip
Road Apples is one of my favourite albums of all time.
6. Led Zeppelin
‘Cause, come on.
7. Black Sabbath
Refer to #6. I don’t want to say how many times I’ve listened to the entire Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album on repeat.
8. Arcade Fire
Refer to #3. They also make me cry uncontrollably. I’m seeing them in August at Rexall, so that should be interesting.
9. Matthew Good
Also refer to #3. I’ve seen Matt Good three times and each time was absolutely unreal.
10. Our Lady Peace
‘Cause Raine Maida. Also, when Superman’s Dead is on, I lose it. Clumsy is amazing.
I had the worst time of my life making this list. I can’t commit to anything. But yeah, this is what I finally came up with. I was fighting for a spot for The Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam and Muse but in the end, it just didn’t happen. Like I said, this list will probably look different in a few months, except for the top three. Those three have always been the top three and will always be the top three, without question.
What do you think? Who’s in your top ten?
