Commentary: GNR imploded and drops on the list. I tried with some of the more modern groups. Megadeth and Slayer tied cause I do not know one from the other but know they are significant. Slipknot made it cause they are my son’s favorite group and it takes balls to perform like they do. I picked Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed cause I actually know and like a song they do – Hail to the King and Sound of Silence respectively. Feel free to throw in more newer bands cause there is only one left to come. I read that Pearl Jam had been around for awhile so I picked them. I know who Dave Grohl is – he sings and plays with everyone out there – and he is probably the only new person that I know and recognize. I really tried to give respect here so be nice. Young, Reed, and Morrison are what legends are made of. Surprise pick at #71 – Dolores O’Riordan was something special so The Cranberries make their appearance. Have fun with the comments.
