“Spin” magazine has put together a list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All-Time, but this isn’t your traditional list, with JIMI HENRIX and ERIC CLAPTON at the top.

Instead, this one includes names like SKRILLEX and JAM MASTER JAY.

“Spin” explains that this is an “alternative” list that, quote, “embraces outsiders, trailblazers and outliers . . . [it doesn’t] worship ‘guitar gods,’ but prefers guitarists to be resourceful, egalitarian, flawed, and human.”  Whatever that means.

Here’s the Top 10:

1.)  Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth

2.)  Kevin Shields from My Bloody Valentine

3.)  Folk guitarist John Fahey

4.)  Kurt Cobain

5.)  J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr.

6.)  Prince

7.)  Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd from Television

8.)  Johnny Ramone

9.)  Eddie Hazel from Funkadelic

10.)  Jam Master Jay from Run-DMC

(–OK, so you’re either feelin’ this list or you’re not.  If you are, you can find the complete list, with brief write-ups on each one, at Spin.com.)
