BEFORE DYLAN, PEOPLE USED GUITARS LIKE OARS

To mark the 100th edition of Uncut, they asked musicians, artists and other people without proper jobs what the artistic moments that changed the world were. Bob Dylan's Like A Rolling Stone won. Of course, this is all a bunch of eyewash anyway - how can you boil down a tipping point in the culture, and if you could, why would the Sex Pistol's Never Mind The Bollocks be a more crucial point than, say, their Today appearance on Thames, or a proper punk release like the Damned's New Rose- but, for what it's worth, these would be the top ten:

1. Bob Dylan Like a Rolling Stone
2. Elvis Presley Heartbreak Hotel
3. The Beatles She Loves You
4. The Rolling Stones (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
5. A Clockwork Orange
6. The Godfather and The Godfather II
7. David Bowie The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
8. Taxi Driver
9. Sex Pistols Never Mind The Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols
10. The Prisoner
