The Top Ten

1 Ween
  Ween Ween is an American experimental rock band that was founded in 1984 in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The members are Dean and Gene Ween.

Truly a bizarre band that spans genres, space and time. They are the least accessible band out there. Many bands can not reach this level of inaccessibility, as Ween has done.

Fantastic group, but even as a long-time fanatic, I must admit that not all their work is easy to hear … [19659008] 2 Sonic Youth
