Solo artist: Townes Van Zandt...While he could have never been much of a commercial success, he should have the same name-recognition as Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash. The fact that even Rolling Stone completely ignored him on all of their "greatest ever" lists appalls me.

Band: Television...As far as technical and creative prowess goes, they stand far above almost any other punk band. I don't know why their name doesn't pop up more.

Ive Heard alot of stuff by Townes van Zandt, but nothing by television :O
sometimes there isnt any justice in music. Its consumerism and capitalism at a ground level, and sh*t stinks :|

I'm gonna say Genesis on account of them not being in Rolling Stone magazines Top 100 artists of all time at the expense of bands like Nirvana, The Eagles and The *** Pistols.

As for solo artists i would pick David Allan Coe. One of my favourite artists of the 70's, and if he died i doubt it would even make a small passage in a newspaper in the UK.

They'll cover whatever is popular. they did mostly pop in the 80s, and they've done more pop and country music covers this year than rock :|
