I was going to put this in sig form, but I thought it'd make for an interesting thread. Acknowledging that musical acts vary so widely that quantification into list form is difficult, I'm doing it anyway and inviting you to do it to. What are your favorite (Top Ten) artists of all time?

Here's mine:

1. Rush
2. The Beatles
3. Green Day
4. R.E.M.
5. The Who/Pete Townshend
6. Pink Floyd
7. Blake Babies/Juliana Hatfield
8. Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis
9. Queen
10. Weezer

Honorable mention: Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler, XTC, Yes, Weird Al Yankovic, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, the Police/Sting, U2, Simon and Garfunkel/Paul Simon, John Cougar Mellencamp, Garbage, Billy Joel, Elton John, Living Colour, Celine Dion (j/k!).

This was harder than I thought, so I put a lot in the honorable mention. Some of those were in the top ten until I remembered somebody who dispaced them.

I wasn't sure if there had been a thread like this in the past. Any Axiom historians who find may find one - link away, but let's update, too, shall we?

1. Regina Spektor

4. Metric
5. Cake

I have too many other favorites, but I can only list those 5 with conviction.

Somewhere, the members of Catatonia are sobbing.

I can't even name any of the guys from that band, even though I have all of their stuff.

I'm sure that Regina will be relieved that Martina has not stolen her mojo. What's the gap between your #1 and #2, and is it narrowing?

Nah, Regina is on a different level, but Marina does crack me up.

I'll have to get some Cake. I think I've liked everything I've heard by them, but I haven't heard much.

They don't change their formula much from album to album, but I don't mind. I like singing along to each one.

Hmm. I always mix them up with Barenaked Ladies.

I thought I'd add mine since it's probably much different than most of you. In no particular order.

1. Gipsy Kings.
2. Shakira.
3. Ana Gabriel.
4. Jethro Tull.
5. Satana.
6. Paul McCartney.
7. Idina Menzel.
8. Laura Pausini.
9. Lila Downs.
10. Dave Matthews.
