    I'm not going to name them but looking at your list I can comment on the best songs from the artists you name.  The Beatles best song is, by far, not Twist and Shout.  Gun to my head I would say Day in the Life or Let it Be.  The Rolling Stones best song is Gimme Shelter.  Led Zeppelin it's Stairway to Heaven.  Aerosmith it's Dream On.  Lynyrd Skynrd it's Free Bird.  I'll give you your picks for Dire Straits, Nirvana (that's an easy one) and Green Day.

    Since antichrist (born to a 12th generation prostitute, flying, big-nailed, gloved, pale-faced, red-eyed, Satan-possessed since he's 12 years old, homosexual man from the tribe of Dan, who wears blue robe over left shoulder while red/pink robe is underneath just like Jesus, and is surrounded by demons but people see angels of light) is around, there is no need for disputes. 666 is not forgivable; it leads to permanent hell. 666 is given with World Passport with no name on it (grey plastic card). Police 666 people on highways. Food stores and prisoners (released by the antichrist) 666 people too. Reject vaccines. Don't go into UFO to be healed by demons. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can't track you.

    There is NO epidemic. There is NO pandemic. It's all bs. 5G kills as many people as gov't wants dead but COVID is blamed. Gov't will blame new death on people who didn't wear masks. COVID VACCINE will be MANDATORY. but COVID VACCINE = MARK OF THE BEAST (at worst) ... or it will work together with 5G to kill people (at best) for depopulation (population control of keeping population under 500 million as per Georgia Guidestones)...

    Source(s): Alaska was given by Creator to Americans so that they can evacuate there (from the lower 48) last minute before mandatory chipped COVID vaccine (aka mark of the beast); Alaska (the last frontier) = your last chance to evacuate the lower 48; forgive me...
