I think that bands like Tool and Meshuggah are ahead of their time. I love music with unusual timing.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

The guitarist if Focus... something Akkerman I think.

He was shredding and sweep picking in 1973! Look up on youtube Hocus Pocus, greatest song ever.

Kevin Shields comes to mind.

While shoegaze and dream pop did take off for a VERY short while across the pond, his influence wasn't REALLY felt everywhere else until years after the departure of MBV.

I know some people would love to argue with me about this but also believe Radiohead is currently ahead of their time. They're just so "out there."

Beatles, Hendrix, Pink Floyd.


I guess I'd agree with Hendrix and Pink Floyd, but I don't know about The Beatles. They more or less just helped pave the way for modern rock n roll.

Wow, where's the love for Jim Morrison?

There was nothing musically about Jim Morrison that was ahead of its time really. He was just an awesome singer. He is mostly remembered for his persona.

I applaud you.

Kramer and the gang were definitely FAR FAR FAR before their time.

Love were a bit ahead of their time with their song 'Seven & Seven Is', very proto-punk

Yeah, because Focus are HUGE

Oh, and listen to "Nile Song" by Pink Floyd. That song is so 90's grunge, it's pathetic.

Stravinsky's Rite of Spring has very unusual timing and came out in 1912.
