Bands Yinz Should Listen To #0: Introduction

Oh hai there.

So, this is a music forum and I want to be a music journalist. Unfortunately, too many times now I've been faced with the startling truth that people on the 'Top 5 Songs By' thread don't know any songs by massively influential bands like The Pixies and The Strokes, both of whose sounds aren't too distant from Green Day's. When I were a wee lass I don't think I knew songs by these bands either, but my excuse is that I didn't have broadband - no YouTube or Spotify on which to discover these bands. People on here don't have that excuse! So I'm going to try and introduce people to mindblowing albums like Daydream Nation, White Blood Cells and The Velvet Underground & Nico by writing short, concise but (hopefully) fun articles about 20 influential artists.

Hopefully I'll convert you to at least one of the artists. Even if you don't like the artists in question, at least you'll be able to hold a brief conversation about them with other music-lovers.
