60 Blur vs. 69 Bob Marley

Blur have never been content to stay in one spot, instead constantly shifting their sound and adding new elements. They’ve gone from shoegaze to pastoral pop to electronic through their career. Frontman Damon Albarn has has even stepped into animated hip-hop with Gorillaz.

Bob Marley & The Wailers introduced reggae to the masses, sold millions of records, spread the message of the Rastafari movement, and inspired countless college students to put his posters in their rooms and grow dreadlocks. Marley died in 1981, but has continued to be a major musical and social force.
