I even like Reveal. Think it's pretty underrated. "Imitation of Life" being one of their more underrated singles - with probably the coolest music video they ever did.

Anton Lavey was a good humored circus organ grinder. Probably an exciting guest for your cocktail party, but calling him Satan seems like a bit of an overestimation.

For the record, I voted for the Smiths. But I love REM too - I mean, what would be wrong with me getting a Michael Stipe tattoo on my left asscheek?

I wonder how it would look if we threw The Cure in as a third option

That's a good question. I'd be inclined to put The Cure at #1.
