Where do Faith No More rank among all time greats?

As per title. Love me some FNM, Ashes to Ashes one of my favourite songs of all time.

Thoughts?

This. 

Huge fan.  Mike Patton doesn't get enough respect IMO.  Dude's a legend.

They have one song that received major radio play... They have A LOT of great songs. Phone Post 3.0

I read quote about the Velvet Underground  that I think is relevant to FNM, too.

"They only sold a few thousand albums. But, everyone who bought that album started a band."

I think FNM has an influence on musicians that is out of proportion with their influence on the general population. They've been blamed for starting "nu metal" and I think there's some truth to that.

 

But, I'm a huge Mike Patton fan, so I'm hardly objective.

Which begs the question, who actually are the all-time greats?!?!?!

#3... of all-time.

#4 in their genre.

LOL not even top 1000. Are you serious? With all the great musicians from classical, jazz, rock, world music, etc., you think Faith No More is even open for discussion??

Now, if we are talking strictly rock, I would say they were a band with a good album with a very good song (for its time) but that is about it.

Black Sabbath



Led Zepplin



There are probably some others but they don't fucking matter.

Culture Club has to be in any top-5 discussion.

Faith No More is not even in the top 500 of "One Hit Wonders"

Wrong.

 

 

Sum 41 should be higher.

They are an amazing band. Lots of people that have only heard Epic, in here.
