Trent Reznor, The White Stripes, Radiohead among Pitchfork’s 200 Most Influential Musicians Over 25 Years – 105.7 The Point
Pitchfork has unveiled its list of the 200 Most Influential Musicians of the Past 25 Years to coincide with the site’s 25th anniversary.
The ranking is divided into 50 “Icons” and 150 “Essentials”, each presented in alphabetical order. Trent Reznor, for example, is listed among “Essentials”, while groups comprising The White Stripes and Radiohead are found among the “Icons”.
“The key to Reznor’s longevity is his willingness to experiment,” writes Pitchfork of the Nine inch nails leader. “He’s a connected industry guy who thinks like a cult artist – he’ll be doing some weird instrumental music aimed at his most dedicated fans for a while, then his next project will be the soundtrack to a Hollywood blockbuster.”
Other rock and alternative artists who made the rankings include Arctic monkeys, Billie Eilish, Paramore, Lorde, Arcade Fire, Björk, Fiona Apple, Lana del rey, Shots, Taming Impala, Vampire weekend, The 1975, Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben gibbard, Fall out and Gorillaz‘s Damon albarn, Brittany Howard, The xx, HAIM, St. Vincent, Phoebe bridgers, TV on the radio and Yeah yeah yeah.
