Depends on your definition of popular.... m.i.a., crystal castles, the ting tings, amy winehouse, beyonce, kelly clarkson, ace of base, abba, james brown, martha and the vandellas, everclear.... Just some of what i've been listening to the past couple months. My new year's resolution was to stop going to the record store. It's been hard so i've had to start raiding my friends' ipods...

I've honestly never really delved into non-performing bands before, but just today I listened to:
Meet The Beatles- The Beatles
Harvest- Neil Young
Dark Side of the Moon- Pink Floyd
Tommy- The Who

So I guess those could be added to my list.
