138. Leonard Cohen

Working as a writer for most of the 1950s and 1960s, Cohen became a folk singer in the late 1960s. His minimalistic, yet impactful style would produce several noteworthy albums and songs, including “Hallelujah.” His lyrical themes and musical style would go on to influence future folk artists, noise-rock enthusiasts and indie musicians.

Thanks for posting, if only to illustrate that after all these years there are still many who really have no clue about Leonard's work. Rankings like this are always a bit silly because they are comparing apples with oranges with bananas, etc. and dealing with an art form that has and will always evolve in significant ways.

Sorry for the cynicism, I didn't sleep well last night.
