You’re missing out bud. 2 is a really good rock group. 3 is a wierd kind of group. They do a lot of everything. 14 is the best funk group ever IMO. 15 is the 2nd best reggae group. 19 is a great old school hip hop group.

I like Pink Floyd but havnt heard enough of them to put them on the list. Dark Side of the Moon is amazing tho. Gotta love the Wizard of Oz sinc.
