Re: Not classic

So can you please outline the criteria?

If Jon Bencer Sues Explosion don't count, why not?

I did that on a post above. But to repeat:

An band/artist who transcends their genre and/or has longevity, is iconic and/or massively influential...

So, Nirvana fits, Chuck Leavell/Modest Mouse-not so much.

The Velvet Underground/The Stones/The Beatles-yes, The Holy Modal Rounders/The Fugs-no.

James Brown-yes, Shuggie Otis-no.

JBSE are more cult than classic, imo.
