Re: AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

My bad if it seems like I keep questioning this poll’s results, but i’m just expressing my opinion on the results of them. The point of polls like these are to provoke discussion, and i’m simply just taking part in that.

Re: AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

R.E.M. got their acclaim in the Springsteen and Talking Heads mold, in which they’re all acts who started out as critics’ darlings, and eventually found mass commercial success as well to balance out that critical acclaim. And let me tell you, music history has shown that a marriage between the rec...

They are all far more important to "popular" music history than the Velvet Underground. It's not even debatable IMO. I can’t tell if this is a joke or not, but if we’re taking about sheer importance and influence on the history of popular music, none of those artists come close to The Vel...
