I went with favorite influential. I think you have to when it's covering an entire decade

your fav influential artist from the 1970s is the bee gees?

They had some jams and were incredibly influential and I really don't like classic rock

And for straight influential it would definitely be James Brown. Really I should have listed him first because I like his songs more but he was best like 65-74

Also, your list is as pop-centric as humanly possible

I took "top musical artist" as just that and not crap that I like. The list of stuff I like would look very different.

The not being able to choose between Celine Dion and Tupac for the 90's while also accusing everyone of having tastes that were too white was pretty great.

One was a massive pop star and the other was, possibly the biggest rap star of the decade. I spent that entire decade living in two mid-sized Kansas cities. You couldn't turn the radio on in the 90's without hearing Celine. Even before Titanic and the Falling Into You albums she was the queen of one huge hit per album, we were learning Celine songs in French class in 1992.

I didn't really listen to Tupac until I got to Manhattan but I don't think there was one single time that I went out that i didn't hear at least one Tupac song. IMO he was much bigger than Biggie, Snoop, and Dre. I preferred Snoop but I think pac was the bigger star. That being said my wife grew up in upstate New York and she didn't know Tupac at all. She knew all of the Bad Boy guys and Wutang. I didn't know anything about wutang until Chappelle's Show, although I did know ODB.

Because Pac didn't differentiate himself enough from other rap stars of the decade I probably should have picked Celine but rap in the 90s should have been represented because of the overall cultural influence. Same could be said for Nirvana but I didn't want to pick a group that was a shooting star, but for only 2 years. But they were the unquestioned kings of 90s alternative which, like rap, was highly culturally significant.

If I had done the 60s it would have been Sam Cooke And Otis Reddy. The 50s would have been Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry.

Snoop v pac was the hardest decision on the list, mir.

I remember riding the bus in 5th grade and my friend had stole his sister's strictly for my niggaz CD and I was blown away listening to it on my discman. I had my mom buy it for me the next week.

Thinking back now though it's kind of  :sdeek: buying an 11yr old that album.

Your mom is/was a G. Some Wichita fuckos stole my discman with my chronic and doggystyle CDs while I was running in a track meet in Hutchinson.

I had a very similar experience on a bus in sixth grade where someone had a Chronic tape.

Except no way in hell would my parents buy it for me.

MIR, if I were going to pick a female pop artist from the 90s, I'd go Whitney. At least in my mind she was bigger than Celine Dion and had a bigger impact in terms of influence on subsequent artists.

That's fair. Certainly her most popular single was in the 90's, but for me her best work came in the 80's. She had very little impact after I Will Always Love You and that was in 1992. She had some good singles after the bodyguard soundtrack but I doubt many remember them. Heartbreak Hotel? It's Not Right but It's Okay?
