Top 5 musicians/bands out of the LA area:
1) Beach Boys
2) NWA (and the solo careers spawned)
3) The Doors
4) Bad Religion
Mentionables: Santana, RHCP, Love, Sly & the Family Stone, Stone Temple Pilots, Flogging Molly, X, The Cramps, NOFX
You named some real stinker up there and left out Van Halen, The Eagles, Guns And Roses (and the whole hair metal scene, which probably underrated because they wrote a ton of great pop songs), Los Lobos, The Bobby Fuller Four, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Flag, The Germs, The Circle Jerks, Thelonious Monster, and the best of all L.A. bands - X.
Plus, Sly & the Family Stone were from Oakland.
