The Strokes -

I can imagine they felt the need to include an album from this decade, just as they chose obligatory picks from other varoius music genres. But besides it being difficult to gauge the influence in such a short period of 6 years, I don't find anything the Strokes did to be that original. 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).

LFO. I would have substituted that with U.F.Orb by The orb. Much more influential.

18 The Clash
London Calling (1979)

The best record to come out of punk, or punk's death knell? On this double album, The Clash fused their rockabilly roots with their love of reggae, moving away from the choppy snarls of the scene that birthed them. This was the album that legitimised punk - hitherto a stroppy fad - into the rock canon. Its iconic cover, and songs about the Spanish Civil War brought left-wing politics firmly into musical fashion.

Without this ... would the west have come to love reggae, dub and ragga quite so much? We certainly would have no Manic Street Preachers ... or Green Day, or Rancid ... or possibly even Lily Allen.
They make the Clash never existing sound appealing

They do the same thing to Radiohead.

Quote:
38 Radiohead
The Bends (1995)

Without this ... Coldplay would not exist, nor Keane, nor James Blunt.

Quote:
4 NWA
Straight Outta Compton (1989)

Without this ... no Eminem, no 50 Cent, no Dizzee Rascal.
KE
That's an insult to NWA becuase it makes that album seem like a bad thing.

Quote:
19 Mary J Blige
What's the 411? (1992)

Without this ... no R&B/soul divide, which means no TLC, Beyonce, or Ashanti, to name just three.
WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE STOP HER!?

Quote:
21 The Spice Girls
Spice (1996)

Without this ... five-year-olds would not have become a prime target for pop marketeers. Most of all, there'd be no Posh'n'Becks.
NS
I'm sorry but are they serious?

Quote:
47 Nirvana
Nevermind (1991)

Without this ... no Seattle scene, no Britpop, no Pete Doherty.
KE
How do they figure that last one out? The first one makes me laugh, Seattle has had plenty of scenes before and after grunge, grunge wasn't even the greatest one.

The list is not that bad. I've seen worse lists but the placements are WACK!!! Some of the commentary on the artists the albums influenced are retarded to.

Actually grunge did have an effect on Britpop. After Cobain died nobody could face having to listen to Pearl Jam so we started looking around to see what bands were on our own doorstep.
