Another 100 Greatest on VH1

VH1 has had a slew of "100 Greatest" shows in recent history. These shows include "100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders," "100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs," "100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs," "100 Greatest Songs of the 80's," and "100 Greatest Songs of the 90's."

Now just in time for Labor Day, VH1 will be airing the newest edition: "100 Greatest Artists of All Time!" They gave an early viewing of the first segment (100-81) today, but the shows will be airing nightly starting Monday through Thursday.

Lists like these can be argued over endlessly: Who was left out? How can The Kinks be better than Journey? How can The Beach Boys be better than The Police? How can Justin Timberlake be on the list at all? :)

The results are highly subjective, but I am happy to see many of my personal favorites on the list (even if they are not listed where I think they deserve): Rush, Madonna, The Cure, Prince, Rage Against the Machine, Mary J. Blige, R.E.M., Nirvana, and U2.
