Found this great website where you enter 2 band/artist names and it works out the connections between them.

Literally minutes of fun!

Any interesting ones you've found?

Best I could manage was 11 steps between Billy Ray Cyrus and The Prodigy.

6 Degrees: Billy Ray Cyrus to The Prodigy

Wonder how they create the path score?

The above one scored 200, while my Public Enemy to Hayseed Dixie path has only 4 steps but scored 443.

There's some mad close links. Cradle of Filth and Vanessa Paradis aren't that far apart either!

Good job on the 23 steps.
