Now that industrial is coming of age I have a feeling that it will be as beloved by the nominating committee as prog seems to be. But, if they do ever pay the genre any attention, this is really one of the first and only bands they'll have to look at after Throbbing Gristle.

The innovation and influence are there, with a bit more name recognition and accessability than most other early industrial bands, but we all know the old saying about shitting in one hand and wishing in the other.

A band who pioneered the seminal sounds, equipment and techniques of Inustrial and forthgoing electronic rock on par with contemporaries Throbbing Gristle. They also evolved into one of the best Synthpop bands and most important EDM influences of the early 80s.

Often overlooked, but an indispensibly influential act reaching all the way to the current rise of EDM.

Just noticed for the first time that Ferris Bueller had a Cabaret Voltaire poster in his room. Good man.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
