13th Floor Elevators
Despite drug troubles and electric jug playing (or perhaps because of), Roky Erickson's band, 13th Floor Elevators are true music pioneers. They have legitimately influenced nearly every psychedelic-minded artist in US history. Their career only spanned a few years, as well as a couple reunions, but their impact on the music industry will last forever.
