Being the compulsive numbers cruncher that I am, I thought I would compile a list of all the nominated Best Band or Artists by Decade.
This way there will be a fast and easy way to see which bands or artists were nominated and how many times. Any band or artist that was nominated more then once will have the total number of nominations next to their name.
I apologize for any spelling errors or phony names listed that I did not recognize. I do enjoy quite a bit of current music, but there is still a lot I have never heard of and if some one posted a phony name in jest I may not have caught it.
I hope people find this list useful.
Good listening everyone!

Oh Eternity ! One must really love these types of inquiries. On a more serious note, quite odd that nobody claimed Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Gentle Giant. To me at least, the likes of KC, Zappa, MO, Miles Davis and to a lesser degree Weather Report, exerted their constant influence across decades (Miles, KC, Zappa - My Holy Productive Trinity, if you like).
