The seventh greatest band of all time, and one of the most influential. Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Björk, The Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, and Beck may be better, but none are as influential.
The Pixies paved the way for many bands, some better than them, but none as original. And Kim Deal's the best bassist ever.

Not a band consisting of Frank Black (vocals/guitar), Joey Santiago (guitar), Kim Deal (bass), and David Lovering (drums), those afore mentioned artists make up the band name "Pixies", not "The Pixies", get it right.
Pixies not The Pixies
by Pixies Fan October 07, 2004
A legendary underground band that consists of Frank Black (vocals/guitar), Joey Santiago (guitar), Kim Deal (bass), and David Lovering (drums). They formed in Boston on 1986, and after releasing five albums on their label 4AD, they disbanded in 1993.

The Pixies are the most influential pioneers of the late '80s alt/rock movement, and effectively blazed the path for groups like Nirvana, Radiohead and Pearl Jam to rise to superstardom.

In 2004, The Pixies have reunited which is indeed, very good news for music.
The Pixies are co-headlining the 2004 Coachella festival with Radiohead. This will be the first time they have ever performed together in more than a decade.
