Not really that shocking. They have pretty decent acclaim from the critics.

These results are hilarious. Keep 'em coming, JimmyJazz! :laughing-rollingyellow:

Okay, this is pretty awesome, to be involved in something like this.
Personally, I'm not that "angry" that Nickelback etc. are on the list. Come on, we're all drinking the hate-aid on that one. Now, if One Direction or Justin Bieber made it, then we'd have a tussle.
I was the only one to vote for Paramore, huh? They're my personal #9 artist! This means that every single one of my top 8 made it as well, and probably also #10.

Top 5 already in 301-500:
#5 Joe Hisaishi (I'm surprised babydoll didn't put him down, maybe lower on his list?)
#9 Paramore
#15 John Mayer
#31 Kelly Clarkson
#71 Moby
The realest feel - "I can't sleep, it's too hot."

I haven't exactly listened to a soundtrack of his yet so I didn't. Great scorer, though.

Indeed, I've heard comparisons between ABBA and Hall & Oates, in that with the context shedded away, people just enjoy the music now.

I unironically love Hall & Oates.

And the first artists from my list have made a showing, The Allman Brothers Band and The Avalanches.

Dusty Springfield and Grimes (I assume) are both top 200! And Grimes didn't even need my vote!

That is the most surprising placing for me too.

I think it is a good thing that this forum can incorporate a wide range of tastes, so I'm not inclined to complain about any placements. Actually, I quite like Celine Dion as a singer even if she wouldn't break into a top 500 for me.

Now for some speculation about the top 200:

Santana (22/376) - very unlikely
Janelle Monae (89/299) - possible
Lynyrd Skynyrd (58/285) - possible
Tom Petty (54/282) - possible
Janis Joplin (129/277) - possible
Cream (75/242) - possible
Pretenders (62/241) - possible
Style Council (2/237) - possible
Foo Fighters (55/217) - expected
Peter Gabriel (59/168) - expected
Van Halen (133/163) - expected
George Harrison (92/163) - expected
Yes (3/157) - expected
Smashing Pumpkins (74/148) - expected
The Police (87/136) - expected
The Eagles (26/131) expected

Finally, these are the last of my votes that missed the top 100:

8. Frank Ocean (#132)
10. Bon Iver (#182)
27. Jeff Buckley (#140)
33. Arctic Monkeys (#118)
34. The Strokes (#153)
41. The Decemberists (#178)
48. TV on the Radio (#138)

Assuming no divine intervention, one of my highly ranked artists will miss the cut. I thought they would surely land at least in the back half of the list, but unfortunately, it was not meant to be.

Dammit, Henry reminded me of another missing artist, Santana! Should be right behind George Harrison... Don't worry guys, I will edit all of this later. There are no screw-ups in the Top 100 itself, though.

Perhaps we should see what the list looks like divided among those who didn't and did vote for Nickelback? You know, like we did with Stairway to Heaven a few years back? :whistle:

I think one notable feature of our artists poll is, for whatever reason, they generally allow entrants with a single vote. Compare this to the song poll, where even a #1 vote would only reach the sub-1000 range. This is likely due to the size of individual lists; going from 100 to 500 is a giant leap, especially compared to 500 to 1000. As such, the lower depths aren't really a consensus, but rather a strange mix of our odd favorites. In other words: don't take these lower placements too seriously. I imagine the difference in score is minuscule.

The Chemical Brothers being so low is disappointing. I guess we still don't have many electronic fans if they struggle to place.
Responding to comments belatedly...

Nickelback got by on the basis of 3 votes, but a score of 48.9, entirely from the "lurker" voters we were discussing. In fact, most of these stranger placements can be explained this way. Hence, why I will alter the list with variations later on.

Sex Pistols never usually do all that well on these polls. Personally speaking, I find numerous other punk bands more compelling, so others probably feel the same way.

Sex Pistols features in my top 100 by formula, but I generally dropped artists with only one main work. It feels more like I really like that one album instead of the band as a whole.

I feel the pain. I don't really like them, but I thought they'd be top 200 for sure.
Agreed, although I'm not really in a position to complain as I did not include them myself.

Post by babydoll » Wed Jul 13, 2016 1:14 am

Dexter, I voted for two of those artists. I thought this through and I put them on my list.

Anyway, Linkin Park at #128? I was too busy screaming for joy at Dusty Springfield's marvelous position and moaning the fact that Otis Redding would have actually been in the top 100 if it hadn't been for idiotic me to notice that Linkin Park was even in the top 500! This is bad.

And I JUST REALIZED THAT FRANK SINATRA IS IN THE TOP ONE HUNDRED! I DIDN'T EXPECT THIS! (I also think both Billie Holiday and Nina Simone may have made it in, too! Yeesh! I'm going to faint from happiness.)

Got a good laugh out of this. I voted for one of these, and another casualty of my non-updated list was that I placed them far too high.

Florence + the Machine improved. Last poll, I was their only vote.

Swans are a respectable 152, up from last year. I can take it.

This means Kendrick might have made the Top 100!

I don't have my list with me, so I cannot compare right now, but most of my picks did make it up high.

Sonic Youth is a for sure. Now I'm really concerned that Green Day made into the top 100, though. And I'm pretty positive Run-DMC has already appeared.

EDIT: Run-D.M.C. is #361.
