jayhawk88: Lulz. Tame Impala is one spot more influential than Led Zeppelin, according to this list. Let that sink in a bit.
Glitchwerks: FTA:23. BurialNo.Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, otherwise known as Basic Channel deserve this slot.I'm laughing that Oneohtrix Point Never made this list and Wolfgang Voigt and Autechre did not.These lists are always so silly, do these journalists even try?
thamike: jayhawk88: Lulz. Tame Impala is one spot more influential than Led Zeppelin, according to this list. Let that sink in a bit.Who?
LewDux: thamike: jayhawk88: Lulz. Tame Impala is one spot more influential than Led Zeppelin, according to this list. Let that sink in a bit.Who?They invented sampling(stealing)
thamike: At any rate, if we're truly adhering to "influence," I think the sheer number of blatant Radiohead ripoffs filling arenas these days is fairly strong evidence.

Killer Cars: Yep, although I'll give Muse a little credit and say the ape just as much of their sound from a mix of Queen, Bach, Rachmaninoff, and a slew of prog bands as they do from Radiohead. Coldplay is basically just a mix of watered-down Radiohead & U2.
Mr. Oizo: Hole ranks higher than Nirvana? Ok then.
iron_city_ap: Mr. Oizo: Hole ranks higher than Nirvana? Ok then.Looking at it from the perspective of 'don't be fronted by a crazy, strung out biatch who probably contributed heavily to her husband blowing his brains out', I'd agree with listing them higher.
WhackingDay: Hahaha,.... Tame Impala > Led Zeppelin.Troll article is trollish.
scalpod: Whenever I hear them they immediately influence me to change the station/track that's playing, so there's that.
farkeruk: The Strokes remain one of the major touchstones for modern indie. Were it not for them, there would be no Arctic Monkeys, no Franz Ferdinand, no Killers, no Libertines and no Cribs; and their ardent pace, Julian's no-fi yowls and Albert Hammond's high-end twangs can still be heard in Palma Violets, The Orwells, Parquet Courts and Twin Peaks.[i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x341]
ParadisePornoTheater: Not impressed. It's as if they just picked the names out of a hat, one by one./apology to Kate Bush//like the xx - but WTF?
NKURyan: I've never really thought Coldplay had all that much in common with Radiohead outside of the fact that Farkers seem to hate both of them and they're both British. They really don't sound anything alike at all...
Brokenseas: thamike: jayhawk88: Lulz. Tame Impala is one spot more influential than Led Zeppelin, according to this list. Let that sink in a bit.Who?'70s rock band. Led by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. Combined bluesy rock with nascent hard rock and Tolkien nerd-rock. Their first five or six albums are really good, you should check them out.
karmachameleon: Kanye West is indeed a huge influence on my bowel movements, but I challenge anyone to show me in what way he is the #3 most influential musician of all time - or how he's even a legitimate musician at all. (A commercial entertainment sensation - yes. A legitimate top-flight musician? Heh...)And while they were kind enough to include Led Zeppelin much farther down than they should have, and a couple of other classic rockers here and there (nice shout-out to David Bowie), not even a mention of The Beatles, except when they finally mentioned Radiohead. The farking Beatles, who virtually perfected the templates for pop/rock and progressive songwriting, arrangement and instrumentation that's still used in 90% of pop/rock music to this day, 50 years later, even if the bands who use it don't know they're using it. In fact I'd make the argument that if somebody is being influenced by somebody else but doesn't even really know it, that's a bigger influence still.No Who, no Rolling Stones, no Black Sabbath (would heavy metal even exist if there'd been no Black Sabbath?), no Eric Clapton, no Steve Miller, no Jimi Hendrix, no Eddie Van Halen, no Miles farking Davis (who really has a great argument for being #1 himself, much less just belonging in the top 50)...I mean look, you don't need to be some nerdy classic rock junkie to acknowledge that these are many of the guys who left lasting imprints to this day. Frankly, at least half this list should have been composed of music at least 25 years old - I mean, isn't part of the definition of "influence" is that it has legs and has stood the test of time? Where do they think Radiohead's vaunted "wall of sound" got its genesis anyway? Surely they don't think Radiohead invented that themselves? Do they even know who Thom Yorke's influences are? (Hint: a couple of them actually made this list - so how does Radiohead get placed above them?)
