Frank Zappa
Yes if only because he once asked why he played so many genres of music, he replied "because I can". He was scatological but backed it up with musical chops. He was intelligent and could have gone the serious music route but he understood the transient nature of fame so he decided to have a bit of fun.

The Clash
Yes and although they turned their back fairly quickly on the raw Punk sound, kudos has to be given for their determination to try different sounds and genres into their music.

Bob Dylan
No although a couple of his albums are really good (Highway 61 revisited), I don't listen to him enough and I hate his voice.

Pink Floyd
Yes. Do I really need to answer this?

Big Black
Yes. Sod it. I love their sound and listen to them a lot. Even if people dislike Steve Albini's production style, he went for something a little different away from the DIY garage ethic.

Tom Waits
Yes, because the more i hear of him the more I get into him and appreciate the smosgaboard of sounds he conjures up.

The Smiths
No. I like The Smiths but I just prefer other 80's guitar bands.

Chuck Berry
no. Just don't listen to him.

Frank Zappa: Damn straight.

The Clash: N/A

Bob Dylan: Good songwriter, terrible musician. He gets my yes.

Pink Floyd: Yes. You'd be pretty damn insipid to vote otherwise.

Big Black: Sure.

Tom Waits: Yes.

The Smiths: Fuck 'em, they're overrated and put on a pedestal by every "edgy" and "independent" listener on this forum. Definitely no.

Chuck Berry: A great musician, a great man. Thumbs up here!

Frank Zappa: Why not, he had the right ideas about music and life in general. I find myself listening to his music less and less but I still think he deserves a spot in there.

The Clash: No, sadly, I don't really like this band. Never hit it off well with London Calling or any of their other material. I can appreciate them for the looming influence they have over other artists I enjoy but I really can't see myself listening to them.

Bob Dylan: Abstain.

Pink Floyd: Of course. One of the first bands I saw myself getting engrossed in and I love their music to death. Everything they made from '71-'77 is positively sublime.

Big Black: No. Steve Albini has made better contributions to the world. And he knows it, too.

Tom Waits: Easily one of the strangest songwriters to grace this fair planet, and yes, one of the best. Absolutely yes.

The Smiths: Nope. Heard enough hype about this band already. I find them not in the least bit interesting.

Chuck Berry: Abstain.

Frank Zappa: Chyea, good musiks.

The Clash: Yes. I find some of their material rather bland but London Calling is a gem.

Bob Dylan: Yes, he's god.

Pink Floyd: N/A. I don't really listen to enough PF to care either way.

Big Black: Chyes. Songs About ****ing is a great album.

Tom Waits: Big yes. A man for the ages.

The Smiths: Personally, nah. I own a few Smiths/Mozzy albums and judging from my taste in music they should be way up on my list, but I can't really dig it.

Chuck Berry: N/A. Don't listen to him.

Hmm, I remember the one of the rules being you had to have 100+ posts to vote. You voice may go unheard my friend.
