100 SKRILLEX Look, as far as we know, our asymmetrically coiffed party pal has never held a guitar in his life. But no contemporary musician has a more primal understanding of adrenaline-pumping, pulse-raising, chest-caving bulldozer riffs than dubstep mosh ambassador Skrillex. Somewhere between the unfiltered piston-pumps of nü-metal and the twinkling emocore melodies that weaned him is a gaping sarlacc of yawping melodies and buzzsaw edges. The bass drop to "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" might just be this generation's "Smoke on the Water" — look no further than the obscene number of "Skrillex guitar cover" videos on YouTube! Most Heroic Moment: Korn's "Get Up," even if Munky technically plucked the strings. CHRISTOPHER R. WEINGARTEN

Yeah, but the label of the article gives the impression that it will be a regular list.
Read the intro. No troll, it's a list specifically tailored to certain guitarists.

I'm glad they picked Mick Barr too, cuz he's just preposterous.
So I decided to scan through the rest of the list because of this. Josh Homme, Wino, Dylan Carleson, Buzzo, Iommi. At least they made some good picks to help balance out the awful ones.
