Hmmm. An iconic and underated STRONG female band leader with bags of attitude. Yeah I see where you are coming from. How dare poetry be in modern music?!

^ Perhaps he is referring to her 'influences'. I would prefer to think she influenced PJ Harvey rather than Madonna.

I especially don't see the connection to Franz Ferdinand, which along with Bloc Party were influence more by the rebirth / rehashing of 80's new wave & particularly the band the Police (who were not listed).
The strokes have influenced a very high percentage of English Indie bands since they started, and those bands would not exist if it had not been for them and their influence. If it was not for The Strokes and The White Stripes guitar music would still be on the decline except for nu metal bands like Papa Roach and the like. I think they are pretty vital as a band that changed music.

I do not agree with Patti Smith, Although I am a fan of hers I don't think she changed music in any way along with Nirvana. Although they gave people an easy way in to grunge music or heavier music they only really opened the door to what was already there rather than changing music itself.

Changing music for better or for worse is still changing music.

The Strokes didn't change music they just made a certain form of it more popular.

Thought I might resurrect this thread to provoke some interesting discussion... My votes for the off-ones:

Mary J. Blige - What's The 411?
The Spice Girls - Spice
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Chic - Chic
The Strokes - Is This It?
Nirvana - Nevermind

It's not that I hate those albums (well, maybe the Spice Girls), but that I don't feel like they brought anything new to music, even for the time in which they were made.

I think Thriller should be there, it's one of my favorite albums and it had pretty massive influence, even though it was mostly negative influence, it was still influence.

Anyway, what a bunch of idiots, what horrible reasoning and a horribly written article overall. They really make me wish The Smiths never existed the way they describe it. No Libertines? Oh noes.

And yeah, In The Court of the Crimson King pretty much f*cking started progressive rock but that ain't important enough, that's nothing compared to the massive influence and innovation of The Spice Girls, right? And you gotta throw in more punk albums than you need, as usual.

Clearly kids made this, because their music history is incredibly faulty. Without DSOTM there wouldn't have been as much prog rock?

Um no, by 1973 prog rock was already declining in popularity. Dumbasses.

I can't stand lazy articles like this. "This album changed music. Really it did. We're not going to go into any detail in telling you why, but TRUST US."
