  Stevie King: The Cramps, "All Women are Bad": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtg...
Jul-30-15  ljfyffe: The Three Little Pigs....<Well, the big bad wolf/ Well, he huffed and he puffed, all that he could/
And low and behold the little pig's house stood/
'It's made out of concrete', the little pig shouted/
The wolf just frowned as he pouted...

And the moral of the story is:
A band with no talent can easily amuse/
Idiots with a stupid puppet show.>

  morfishine: <HeMateMe> Well, this is priceless: <Pink Floyd got boring. It's over for them, after The Wall> You moron, they were basically done at that point anyways, idiot

*****

Jul-30-15  diceman: <Stevie King: The best American band is The Eagles, that's for darn sure, no arguing about that one. For the rest you can argue amongst yourselves.>

...it's a good thing they kept their hair.

...just think of all the bald eagle jokes.

Jul-30-15  HeMateMe: <You moron, they were basically done at that point anyways, idiot>

Morf-turd, there have been a couple PF albums since The Wall that were incredibly boring with no sort of consumer satisfaction, and also a couple of solo Roger Waters albums that sucked, and maybe a solo Dave Gilmour album that sucked. I don't have the discography memorized like you might, but I do know when a group is finished.

Pink Floyd WAS a great band, but their output is relatively small, compared to a lot of other top notch groups.

Watch the insults--you'll always get that kind of language put back in your face.

  OhioChessFan: Little Feat and The Band belong in the top 10, for sure. I think CCR is #1 by a mile but there's a lot of room for argument on the other 9.
Jul-30-15  Jim Bartle: My list, heavily weighted toward old groups (nothing post-2000), and cheating a little with one.

1. The Band
2. Grateful Dead
3. Hendrix
4. Beach Boys
5. REM
6. Jefferson Airplane
7. Buffalo Springfield
8. Crazy Horse with Neil Young
9. Booker T
10. Creedence

No space for lots of good ones. Little Feat, Velvet Underground, Quicksilver, Pretenders if they are American, GoGos.

  Stevie King: Dude, you forgot the Eagles.
Jul-30-15  HeMateMe: Crazy Horse and Jimi are not groups; they are solo players using a bunch of fellows named 'Crazy Horse' and a bunch of fellows named 'The Experience' as backup musicians.

I love Jimi too, but if you let him in, then you have to relax the rules and let ALL of the great solo artists in, such as Michael Jackson, James Brown and Cheryl Crow.

Jimi was also in something called Band of Gypsies, which is also Jimi and some back up players.

  Travis Bickle: <Jim Bartle> Neil Young & Crazy Horse is a fine selection but Neil was born in Canada & didn't make his way to the states (Laurel Canyon) until he was an adult. He probably has dual citizenship by now though.

  Travis Bickle: <HeMateMe> I disagree, Whatever band Jimi played with was a band whether it be The Experience or The Band of Gypsy's... Same thing with Neil Young, whether he plays with Crazy Horse or another band they both chose their players.
Jul-30-15  zanzibar: <JimB> Funny to see Hendrix and the Beach Boys side-by-side...

after all, as Jimi said -

<You'll never hear surf music again>

Jul-30-15  Jim Bartle: Crazy Horse was a group on its own, and put out a number of excellent records. They weren't just guys who backed up Neil Young. They wouldn't rate a spot in a top ten on their own, though.

Probably their best song was "I Don't Want to Talk About It," which was covered by Rod Stewart and became a hit. The Crazy Horse version is better.

Jul-30-15  Jim Bartle: <Crazy Horse and Jimi are not groups; they are solo players using a bunch of fellows named 'Crazy Horse' and a bunch of fellows named 'The Experience' as backup musicians.>

I said I was cheating. If those two can't go in, I nominate Little Feat and the Allman Brothers.

And I did not forget the Eagles.

Jul-31-15  ljfyffe: <Bickle>To the best of my knowledge, Neil Young, like Donald Sutherland, be Canadian; neither has taken out dual citizenship.

  PhilFeeley: Way past time for an Andorra page:

http://en.chessbase.com/post/granda...

Jul-31-15  ljfyffe: <Bartle>To get The Band, Buffalo Springfield, and perhaps NeilYoung and Crazy Horse in there, the category would have to be top Canadian/American bands, don't you think?
Jul-31-15  Jim Bartle: They all sound very American when I listen to them.
Jul-31-15  HeMateMe: What about the Alice Cooper Band? That was the original name of the group. Vince Fornier, a Michigan lad, later legally changed his name to Alice Cooper, so he wouldn't lose the important trademark name.

  harrylime: Well I'm playin "catchup" here and can see some cool top ten lists of Yank bands have been posted! lol

For me, The Beach Boys, The Doors, and The Velvet Underground are all essential nailed on top fivers ... Just because they all changed the course of popular music and have uber influenced so many bands.

After this it's open to subjecture.

A work in progress <MrDJ> ! lol lol

I've been distracted by all the American dentists catching flights to Africa trying to wipe out nearly extinct species to be honest ....

But I'll get back on it . lol

I'm with <HeMateMe> on this ..

never thought I'd say this either lol lol

A "band" is a "band" ... It's a creative unit and entity going somewhere and staying somewhere ... not an ephemeral set piece put togeher to augment a particular muscian's prowess.

  OhioChessFan: Let me give mine a shot. I think I've done this before and I'm sure this will be different than last time. Five minutes from now it would be different.

1. CCR
2. Lynyrd Skynyrd
3. Beach Boys
4. Aerosmith
5. Little Feat
6. The Band
7. Guns N Roses
8. Allman Brothers
9. Eagles
10. The Byrds

Sorry to the Seattle bands, they belong, but I couldn't find room for them. Sorry to the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but only Jimi was American. Sorry to Motown, maybe they weren't bands. Sorry to the Silver Bullet Band and Steve Miller Band, I wouldn't include backing bands. Kansas, Starship, Boston, MC5, Van Halen, not enough spots.
