Musical identity is more important than actual date of release. Try to keep bands that are more iconic/representative of the genre closer to the beginning of the list. If you violently disagree with an existing categorization, talk about it in chat before you edit. If a band is mostly a one-hit wonder, or is super famous for something, list it next to the band name.

Be friendly with your merges.
