I think overall it's an okay list, obviously people are always going to have problems with it and bands are going to be left off. I'm guessing it's mostly newer stuff which would excuse the fact Sonic Youth, Pavement etc aren't on there.
Although that Fratelli's vote, tssssk....

Isn't Interpol on a major record label? Still this list is ok but barely.
