Finally, a list where I fuckin' recognize over half the bands...

The Velvet Underground - New York's best band produced, ever.
Public Enemy - I think they started hip-hop.
The National - Great indie band.
Deltron 3030 - IMO one of the best (yet most underrated) rap groups ever.
Spoon - Contrary to what most ppl believe, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga wasn't a step up for them.
Bon Iver - Best album of the year. Great lyricist, excellent songwriter.
Porcupine Tree - One of my newfound joys. Love 'em.
David Bowie - The quintessential musician. He did a little bit of everything, and most of it was great.
The Jesus and Mary Chain - JAMC and the Bunnymen had a bigger influence on modern music than REM and Sonic Youth. Certainly an excellent act.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Okay, don't really listen to tho...
Gentle Giant - Crazy but great.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Overrated by a lot of people here, but certainly good.
Tom Waits - Bob Dylan Lite? He was a great songwriter but was on and off with his work. I wouldn't call him a legend like many suggest.
Radiohead - Biggest band of the decade. Everything after Pablo Honey was good.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Post-rock meets experimental? Strange but otherwise excellent.
Cannibal Ox - Heard of, but never listened to.
Bright Eyes - Conor Oberst has some of the most overrated lyrics ever and is by no means a good songwriter or musician.
Leonard Cohen - Okay, but not my type of cheese.
Elliott Smith - Overrated here, but a great songwriter nonetheless. (I would put him in the top 20 greatest songwriters ever).
MF DOOM - Loved him in Danger Doom and Madvillain. Great rapper.
Grateful Dead - My father was a Deadhead. I never saw anything special about them. =/
Steely Dan - Excellent, underrated act. One of my favorite '70s acts.
King Crimson - My absolute favorite prog band.
Dr. Octagon - Heard of him, but never listened to any solo works.
Faust - Great Krautrock.

Some of my shit was accidentally on when I was importing CDs, so I'm gonna ignore it for what I actually listened to...

Hawkwind
Gang of Four
The Pretty Things
Black Flag
Atmosphere
Stereolab
Kula Shaker
David Holmes
John Coltrane
Mickey Hart
Graham Coxon
The Go! Team
Manic Street Preachers
Mansun
The Eels
The Auteurs
Belle and Sebastian
The Offspring
Suede
Lou Rhodes
Nine Inch Nails
Hum
Alice Cooper
Against Me!
Jamiroquai

Proggy:

VU - Already stated my opinion on them, they had some great songs and VU&N is a great album but beyond that I'm not big on them.

Public Enemy - Hell yes, got me hugely interested in hip hop. It Takes a Nation and Fear of a Black Planet are undisputable classics.

The National - Bllaaaaaaaaaah. I don't like these guys at all, I hate the Nick Cave wannabe vocals and the music overall is so inredibly undercooked and boring.

Deltron 3030 - ...

Spoon - Now if there ever was a stereotypical indie band it's these guys, so plain and average to me.

Bon Iver - ...

Porcupine Tree - Amazing band, I seriously don't understand why they are not more popular. They have something about them that should appeal to both prog fans and casual musicgoers.

David Bowie - The great chameleon, what else is there to say? This guy is a god.

Jesus and Mary Chain - Said it before, I can't really bear listening to these guys anymore.

Brian Jonestown Massacre - Meh. If I want to listen to garage rock I'll listen to Nuggets, because those songs were actually made in the 60s.

Gentle Giant - Make love to me.

Nick Cave - I think he's got some great stuff, but I don't quite get all the hype.

Tom Waits - Brilliant and one of the best crossover artists ever.

Radiohead - Well I'm hoping to see these guys in a week, so hell yeah I love em.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Amazing, unbelievable the kinda sounds these guys can get out of a guitar.

Cannibal Ox - ...

Bright Eyes - *vomits*

Leonard Cohen - I put him in the "great songwriter but you wont catch me listening to him" category.

Elliot Smith - A great songwriter and a great voice, was a huge loss.

MF Doom - Hell yeah. Danger Doom was where it's at.

Grateful Dead - I think they're an amazing band but I'm not the biggest fan, I love their country songs the most.

Steely Dan - Think they're great.

King Crimson - Like I have to say anything.

Dr. Octogon - ...

Faust - Pretty sweet stuff.

Sam:

Hawkwind - Excellent stoner band. Most prefer their real hard rock stuff but I prefer their spacier prog works, like Warrior on the Edge of Time.

Gang of Four - Entertainment! is all I know but it's soooooo good.

The Pretty Things - Stuff I've heard I quite like but I need to hear more from them.

Black Flag - Required listening for anyone that gets angry every now and then.

Atmosphere - ...

Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup is a fantastic album, thats all I know from them.

Kula Shaker - Only heard a few songs, nothing spectacular and just seems like by the numbers rock to me.

David Holmes - ...

John Coltrane - Amazing, love his work with T. Monk too.

Mickey Hart - He has solo stuff? O_o

Graham Coxon - Not familar with his stuff outside of Blur.

The Go! Team - Not bad, but this sounds like something I would have been obsessed with when I was 10.

Manic Street Preachers - Holy Bible, screw everything else and **** Nicky Wire.

Mansun - What in the hell is wrong with this guys voice?

The Eels - They have some cool mellow kinda songs.

The Auteurs - ...

Belle and Sebastian - They bore me to tears.

The Offspring - Used to love them when I was a kid, dont listen to them anymore.

Suede - Not a big britpop fan but they have some pretty good stuff.

Lou Rhodes - ...

Nine Inch Nails - I like them, not their fans so much.

Hum - ...

Alice Cooper - Hell yeah for his earlier stuff.

Against Me! - Not into that stuff, my brother is.

Jamiroquai - Uh.... That guy with the hat?

The albums that I have are folk compositions. In them he abandoned all techniques of songwriting instead preferring to jam on a djembe for 40-45 minutes. It's hilariously unorganized but surprisingly relaxing music. I found it in my dad's dust bin (he was a huge Deadhead).
