BilliPod 2007: Top Artists

From my unpublished 2007 drafts:

So how do you fill a 60 GB iPod? It helps to have a lot of live bootlegs. I thought it would be interesting/fun to see how the artists rank, in terms of the number of tracks on the BilliPod. There are not a lot of surprises, but here are the top 10:

1. Pearl Jam 939 (982 if you include Eddie Vedder solo efforts)

2 . The Beatles 293 (379 if you include John, Paul and George, solo)

3. Bob Dylan 169

4. Red Hot Chili Peppers 156

5. U2 150

6. The Rolling Stones 139 (157 if you include Keith and Mick's solo efforts)

7. The White Stripes 114

8. The Doors 113

9. Nirvana 112

10. Fishbne 105

11-20. Iron Maiden (101), Warren Zevon (94), Led Zeppelin (91), Metallica (90), Foo Fighters (89), Beastie Boys (86), Thelonious Monk (86), Guns 'N Roses (85), The Who (84), Judas Priest (83)

Honorable Mentions: Jimi Hendrix (82), Neil Young (81), and The Donnas (81).

Artists with 50-75 tracks: R.E.M., INXS, Green Day, Radiohead, Peter Case, Smashing Pumpkins, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Ramones, The Mountain Goats, Lucinda Williams, AC/DC, Van Halen, The Clash, Ellliott Smith, Sonic Youth, Outkast, Elvis Costello, Jane's Addiction and Miles Davis.

And in the 40-50 range: John Lennon, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, The Strokes, Queen, "Weird" Al Yankovic, The Killers, Audioslave, and Black Sabbath.

A relatively pointless exercise, but still interesting, I guess.
