Honestly a great list. My biased take is no CSH or even Will Toledo? he seems pretty important to the Bandcamp scene and Indie rock in general imo, but I am just salty fanboy moment

Are you kidding? No PJ Harvey???
October 5, 2021
yeah I gotta cover @choumah, where is Simz?

I swear yall are fucking dumb as hell. The top 50 leaves out quite a few artists but many of the ones you dumbasses mention like Arctic Monkeys is on the full 200 list. Fucking dumbass mother fuckers.
