Apples in Stereo. Neutral Milk Hotel gets all of the hype out of the Elephant 6 Collective, but the Apples actually had a career. Maybe they should've been recluses as well.
Mudhoney. Still the greatest band out of Seattle, and the foundational band of grunge. And still actually putting out good albums.
Kurtis Blow. First rap artist on a major label, and he's virtually forgotten today.
Alkaline Trio. Probably the most consistent punk band of the last decade, but they don't get the cool points that post-punk does.
Archers of Loaf. Along with Pavement, probably the most important indie bands post-Nirvana. It was the conscious retreat back to the underground. Pavement got to play Central Park last year, the Archers? Not so much.
Sleater-Kinney. Best band of the aughts. Not best girl band, best band.
