  • Most original musical artists/bands of all time

    I know literally hundreds of artists could go on here, but I'm listing the dozen IMHO the most original/innovative/unique artists of all time.
    In no particular order:

    Hank Williams-father of Honkey Tonk and his music was one step away from Rock and roll.

    Bob Marley and the Wailers-invented Reggae

    The Ramones-Fathers of Punk Rock

    The Doors-nothing like them before or since-wacky combo of rock, jazz, blues, pop, psychedelic, spoken word/poetry. My favorite band.

    Chuck Berry-father of Rock and Roll

    Allman Bros-Southern rock innovators

    Black Sabbath-first of the real heavy metal bands and invented the riff.

    Pink Floyd-I don't know what to say here--just Pink Floyd LOL!

    Grateful Dead-they were a movement, or a cult, let alone a band.

    The Beach Boys-created(or at least popularized) surf music-theyre vocal harmonies never duplicated.

    B52s-New wave masters. and just one of the coolest bands ever.

    Jimi Hendrix-no need to say more

    Honorable mention-The Who, Dick Dale-king of the surf guitar, Nirvana, David Bowie, the velvet underground, Kraftwerk, Devo

    who you got? (lets try to keep it to the more famous ones, as the list gets to infinity if we include anybody nobodys heard of). : )

          There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

                          Google - or YouTube - is your friend. The Bonzos, in particular, were wonderful. Don't be put off by the fact that they were a "comedy" outfit; their music is great.
                          Hocus pocus by focus! Lol! One hit wonders don't count!
                          Focus were hugely inventive, and massively talented. It's worth listening to their other stuff - not just their one hit

                            I think Focus had a hit with 'Sylvia' too.

                            Sparks are the American duo Ron and Russell Mael, better known in Britain and Europe than in the US. They always come up with something different.

                              Hello Abby,

                              Hank Williams

                              Agree

                              Bob Marley and the Wailers-invented Reggae

                              Popularised Reggae for the mass market, definitely didn't invent it. Should really be in the honourable mentions.

                              The Ramones-Fathers of Punk Rock

                              See above

                              The Doors

                              Definitely

                              Chuck Berry

                              Definitely

                              Allman Bros-Southern rock innovators

                              Don't really know much about southern rock

                              Black Sabbath-first of the real heavy metal bands and invented the riff.

                              First heavy metal, but Pink Floyd invented the riff on there first album.

                              Pink Floyd-I don't know what to say here--just Pink Floyd LOL!

                              Oh yeah!

                              Grateful Dead-they were a movement, or a cult, let alone a band.

                              Was never into the Dead personally, but you are right.

                              The Beach Boys

                              Yep.

                              B52s-New wave masters. and just one of the coolest bands ever.

                              Not a fan at all, found the music to obvious and derivative.

                              Jimi Hendrix-no need to say more

                              Top of any list.

                              Honorable mention-The Who, Dick Dale-king of the surf guitar, Nirvana, David Bowie, the velvet underground, Kraftwerk, Devo

                              Nirvana, Velvets and Devo are far more than honourable mentions.

                              Kraftwerk are top five in any list. Their influence changed the music world, literally!
