From jackbrown8786 10/24/2016 22:52
just barely in the top 150 artists... they have at least 150 live albums, lol, some of which are nearly 100 CDs long (not a typo, see: 30 Trips Around the Sun). define epic, lol. they probably have the record for "most side project bands" as well, most likely in the lead by twice as much as the #2 band, w/e that might be. they're not just in a band, they didn't just influence a ton of bands, but they're actually directly responsible for 2 dozen bands. how they did it in a single lifetime is puzzling. you can't even rate these guys properly b/c you aren't familiar with a significant enough fraction of their work.

this music was their entire, long lives. easily top 5 most underrated artists on this site. I know an awesome guy who likes all older music and this is his fav band.

this site says enough: "Members who like this artist also like: Pink Floyd, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones." I could have predicted that.

An outstanding force. Maybe the most inventive of all who followed the Beatles, either in songwriting as for opening new spaces. The sweetest harmonies, the darkest dissonances, the wisest words and the dullest moments, the most caring and the most demanding to their fans.

Unbelievable that the Grateful Dead isn't in the top 10 artists. Seems like people's ratings are based on which artists can produce the most hit singles in a recording studio.

The Grateful Dead has played thousands and thousands of shows, each show being unique and each song being played in a unique way. Their instrumental talent is top notch, the lyrics are deep and far reaching. I really can't say enough.

Bands like R.E.M. and U2 literally manufacturer their music for the masses. Their music is catchy at best.

They're OK, but the music doesn't match the cultural presence.

The Dead sound lives on and on and on. Spirited music for the ages. Have you got it now? Give it a try -- you will never be the same once you get it.
