Best songwriters of our generation?

Here's my rough list, in no particular order...

Kurt Cobain
Elliott Smith
Thom Yorke, et al.
Beck

Shoot my picks down and add new ones.

Wesley Willis, RIP...

All the greats die young.

But honestly, I don't really like the songwriters from our generation, besides a handful of the aforementioned.
