10. Neil Young
Neil Young almost disproved his theory that ‘rock and roll will never die’ when he released ‘Trans’ in 1982. The folk-icon (and later grunge icon) decided that Kraftwerk looked like they were having wayyyyy too much fun, and wanted to get into electronic music. Leave it to ze Germans Neil. With song names like ‘We R in Control’, ‘Computer Cowboy’, and ‘Sample and Hold’, a retro-futurism artwork, and a shiny new vocoder, Young certainly walked the walk, but it really led to an album that fans would rather wasn’t mentioned. He got it out of his system though, following it up with the Rockabilly album and a country album after that. Good to have you back Neil.
