I voted Aerosmith, but only because there was none of the above option. Look I dug NIN in my late teens/early twenties, but Aerosmith has the lasting power here. Aerosmith spans generations were NIN does not. This is coming from a guy that bought his sister a NIN Emek yours ago.
Now if I could pick a music them for a pin it would be Red Hot Chili Peppers all the way. Only if the translite does not look like this:
Second best would be The Reverend Horton Heat.
