    Underworld's been around longer than 15 years, how are they more okay to put in this poll than Kraftwerk? For that matter, Daft Punk's been around longer, I don't know, maybe all of them have.

    Daft Punk hasn't been around longer than 15 years unless we're counting pre-album work, which we're not. Dubnobass was 93, and frankly that's when Underworld started mattering.

    Fuck 'Flow Coma' is a great track. Maybe even the greatest acid track ever. But it is 20 years old, and thus, out of the running.

    I'd take that as a compliment actually but I don't think it's remotely accurate.

    the fact that you would disagree with me and take unoriginality as a compliment is expected.

    As much as I hate to admit it...

    Okenfold and the album Tranceport, in my opinion, really brought rave culture and everything that goes with it out of the underground. However, a lot was going on back then to bring electronic music to the forefront. Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Moby and the rest of the track-by-track pretend album DJs were responsible for bringing electronic music to car commercials. Fuck em. Moby was better when he was suicidal. Call me whatever you will, but the legendary mix albums of the mid to late 90s brought real electronic music, and the scene, out of the swamps.

    That said, I fucking hate trance....and that pyramid was pretty neat.

    Oh, and AT was by far and wide one of the absolute innovators of electronic music. Ricard D James is like the Velvet Underground of EDM.

    By best I assume you mean "Who sold the most albums"...judging by the poll list. You forgot about the troopers who've been rocking since back in the day and innovating all along. Icey, Irene, Ron D Core, Ronni Size, Diesel Boy, Bad Boy Bill...all innovators...and wayyyyyyyy better than anything on that poll...

    Basement Jaxx and Future Sound of London are the only ones I'm not totally familiar with and if I become familiar with them, you'll be waiting for my vote for an eternity. I already can't decide! (And that's with Daft Punk as choice even!)
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
