    A research project which is to find out the level of popularity of individuals and groups in the contemporary music.
    There will be series of threads with randomly selected lists of 10.
    It is going to culminate in a chart list.

    1. Simply give to each of the listed names points according to the scale below.
    2. Do it instantly, don't search for the name here or there.
    3. Don't cut the points of artists just because they are not your cup of tea.
    This is not about your favorites.

    The Scale:
    level of your knowledge of the given performer

    5 pts - Yes, Absolutely
    You know well considerable part of their careers and works.

    3 pts - Known
    Basic knowledge. You know couple of songs or even an album or more.

    1 pt - Vaguely
    You know this name for sure but just in general that this is some musician/band and not much more even if you probably make a connection with some tune.

    0 pts - Not at All
    Never heard or you are not quite sure about this name even if you've probably came across it in some magazines, web-sites, etc but you don't remember anything.

    Okay, here is the first group of names, just give to each 0, 1, 3 or 5 pts depending on the scale above:

    Group 1

    Fleetwood Mac
    The White Stripes
    Guided by Voices
    Modern Talking
    In Flames
    Joe Satriani
    Etta James
    Monster Magnet
    The Animals
    Saxon
