Teen Survey Lists METALLICA And NIRVANA As Two Of All-Time Greats
According to the Lawrence Journal-World, a recent survey of more than 1,000 teens conducted by Sam Goody stores listed THE BEATLES as the greatest band of all time, raking in 27 percent of the surveyed population. METALLICA ranked second with 20 percent of the vote; and NIRVANA rounded out the top three with 17 percent.
Sally Campbell, a junior at Free State High School, says the Fab Four likely garnered so much of the teen vote because of their pervasive influence.
"They made such headway in music and broke down so many barriers that they really brought rock 'n' roll to the forefront, where it stayed for a very long time and remains today," Campbell says.
The study also asked teens which of their parents' favorites they would most like to burn in a fire. The results indicate classics such as ELTON JOHN (28 percent) and JOHN DENVER (21 percent) would fuel the blaze.
