    I would like for everyone to list a musician or band that revolutionized music. On top of that lets hear why? If you don't like someones choice, explain why (tastfully of coarse).

    Nirvana, they took the MC Hammer Hip hop music and flushed it down the toilet and lead the way for vast music change.

    Mmm, tempting choice...

    Gotta go with Black Sabbath. They created metal as we know it.

    Metallica

    They saved heavy metal and have influenced virtually every metal/hard rock band after them. They also took metal in a new direction. They have ridiculously fast tempos, harmonized guitars and almost-10-minute instrumentals that don't get boring. Who else is talented enough to play instrumentals that people want to hear?
    They've always played what they felt (true meaning of music) and broke through all sorts of barriers. James' lyrics are more diverse than any other and could be promoted as poetry. Kirk's solos are massively complicated and amazing, as is the way Kirk's and James' guitars seem to speak to each other. And Metallica is still relevant today, going on 30 years (unlike the friggin Rolling Stones who only play that annoying Satisfaction song).
    The true measure of a band's success in music is their ability to inspire people to play music who wouldn't otherwise. And hundreds, probably thousands, have cited Metallica as that inspiration.

    I was expecting this response. We can have this argument all day. You are allowed to believe this, you are wrong, but you can have your opinion. All I can say is that they play what they feel, and their music has literally saved my life (along with countless others).
