Like the Phish call. I have pushed for them here and there without much traction. I personally don't care for their music, but they undoubtedly can stake a claim as the tops of their genre.

Will definitely vote for Billy Idol as I usually do.

Love Liz Phair.

Hard to not support Beyonce, but she is not exactly a high priority for me.

Still like Sting.

Would love to vote for Foreigner.

Can get behind Aphex Twin, Anthrax, R Kelly, Fatboy Slim, Cyndi Lauper, Pet Shop Boys.

Really can get behind Sweet and Hawkwind.
