A Top 50 Bands Announcement

Lists, lists, lists. This one contains the 50 best music artists I could think of in 10 minutes, plus one song from each that best defines them. I’m an optimistic move, I’ve tried to arrange them so that similar artists are grouped together. I hope that if you see something you know and like, the adjacent items will also be up your alley. Of course, these songs are for promotional purposes only, and if you own them and would like them withdrawn, please leave a comment and they will be removed within 24 hours. Support these great bands and buy their music.
