Who is the best band or artist ever? I want to keep this discussion to modern music rather than classical. Any genre - electronic, jazz, rock, pop, indie, country, hip-hop, etc. I know it's nearly impossible to do this, and nobody is right or wrong. Just put who you think is the best and for what reason. I haven't made up my mind yet, but I'm pretty sure it'll be Foreigner, Richard Marx, Styx, or Boston.
