Alphabetical List of the 68 Groups/Singers WIth At Least 4 Incredible "Turn It Up" Songs

We will return to baseball this weekend, but a random side project diverted me from the sports board games I normally use as my break from work. Here are the 68 groups I define as GREAT based on having at least four songs I consider so awesome that I have cranked them with headphones.

As I posted on Facebook a couple of days ago, I walked out of Daily Mass at the Cathedral and a local group called the Foo Foo Dolls was doing an incredibly great job with Cake's "Girl with a Short Skirt and a Long Jacket," which I posted here. After watching them I thought to myself that Cake actually four songs I consider incredible and would turn up and replay anytime - that one as well as Going the Distance, Will Survive and Never There.

I thought, "Wow, there can't be too many bands that have four or more songs I consider that good."

Anyone who knows me knows that thought led to a spreadsheet and dump of all the greatest bands and songs. Well, it turns out there are actually 60 additional bands which I listed below alphabetically along with the decade in which they primarily performed, and my favorite four songs from each band starting with my favorite - but the other three not necessarily in order.

I am more Classic Rock but also Kanye, and a couple of country etc. I listed the bands alphabetically, and did not put "the" in front of words, so the list starts with AC/DC and ends with (The) Who, meaning my favorite band is listed last.

For fun, how many groups would say are responsible for at least four of your favorite songs?
