Jun 2 2014, 0h38 por maplejetLiking a band is one thing...but if you want similar artists, will you be able to find some?
I've decided to investigate several bands/artists myself and determine whether what last.fm gives as similar artists work out or are off. Today, it's the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are classified as mainly alternative rock...though that genre is broad. Styles explored by the band include funk rock, pop rock, funk (specifically freaky styley, funk metal (earlier albums), and sometimes, rap rock (aka, rap-like vocals) and psychedelia influences, but rarely.
So, let's see what last.fm considers similar. I have filtered out the first 50 bands/artists that showed up as similar on 6/1/2014. And I made comments under each of the bands/artists based on what I know.
--Well, he's the guitarist of RHCP...but I don't think his music is similar to RHCP.
John Frusciante and Josh Klinghoffer
--Well, more RHCP side-projects. But once again, I have no idea if they are similar

Dez 7 2013, 8h25 por stationinmyroom300 all-time greatest rock bands.
This list has been created for more than five years. For more than ten years I have listened a lot of very good and very bad rock music. I have some general knowledge about music theory and music history. Every band is rated with numeral mark (max 100). Mark is just my subjective opinion. Band's technical ability, overall quality of their discography, originality, innovativity and influence were considered. Also negative points were added for plagiarism.
It's just my opinion, so don't take it too seriously.
The list will be changed and updated with time.
Every comment is welcome and every suggestion will be considered.
