Thought this might be interesting so we'll see how it goes.

Name a music category/genre/whatever and the pinnacle performer/group belonging to it. Naturally this is opinion based so I personally don't care what MTV or VH1 thinks.

I'll start.

Classical music, Baroque - Johan Sebastian Bach (aka JS Bach)

Metal band - Black Sabbath

I was very tempted to put up Metallica

Since you're shooting for the Pinnacle of a genre, instead of the most influential (aka oldest band you can think of). My own personal view is that in order to be the pinnacle of a genre, you not only had to bring the sound to the masses, but you also had to stay true to your roots and put out such a good album that it almost transcends genre.

Punk: Rancid

Rap: Snoop Dog

Metal: Metallica

Jazz: Miles Davis

Country: Johnny Cash

These aren't my personal favorites (Except for Rancid and Johnny Cash)

That was my working definition too :thumb:
