    though to be honest, no American band is probably in the top five.

    though the chicks will say Bon Jovi. Mötley Crüe is a very close second.

    It just is and nobody else needs to apply.

    I will give special mention to the Talking Heads. Not really rock, but Psycho Killer is messed up enough to warrant some attention.

    Elvis and Chuck Berry win.

    especially when it was "The Band"

    .....also Velvet Underground.

    Van Halen sucks

    someone has some sense. Allman Brothers are one of the best bands in history and influenced countless artists.

    Also the Bill Evans trio with Scott Lafaro and Paul Motian were arguably the best jazz trio in history, an all of them were American. Damn, I love the Black Crowes, but come on, the best ever?

    And 80's hair bands are not and cannot be the best bands in history. Damn.

    And just as a side note to Shmuley, I honestly like Joe Walsh's stuff better than the Eagles, but thats just me.

    honorable mention to Skynyrd, Allman Bros., Aerosmith

  25. #25

    Pack Mentality: Greatest AMERICAN Rock Band.

    Actually, I'm going to go with Skynyrd.

    And Jackyl. Anyone who can use a 17ing chainsaw as an instrument has to be mentioned.

    do we have a separate Heavy Metal category?

    I also throw in votes for the Eagles, Skynard, and ZZ Top

    Elvis and Chuck Berry aren't really "bands" though, I think that is the distinction. They are without a doubt rock and roll though.

    They are all HUGE, but I don't think they qualify as bands.

    But one thing we all should agree on... Metallica sucks.

  33. #33

    Pack Mentality: Greatest AMERICAN Rock Band.

    It's either GnR or Metallica with my pick being GnR. Van Halen could get an honorable mention, but the rest of the bands thrown out aren't touching the first two. Bottom line, GnR could have been a top 5 worldwide, all-time had they stuck together and kept making music with only the Beatles and Stones firmly edging them out.

    ETA-Black Crowes would get an honorable mention from me as well.

    I've seen him three times and each time I think, "the guy can write, but the guy can't put on a show"

    Comparing Dylan to someone like Neil Young and the shows they put on is simply unfair.

    Now maybe Dylan would be better in a small less than 150 people type setting, but I just found him to be terribly overrated.There I said it.

    Bon Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, ZZ Top, The Eagles, and Phish. Not greatest of all time but currently: Kings Of Leon, MGMT, and Vampire Weekend

    I am mortified to see how many votes the Eagles and Skynard are going to get.

    Of course, we are talking about one of the most subjective topics in the world, but my American favorites are:

    The Dead, The Band, CSNY, GNR, Allman Brothers, The Doors

    Although, you may have a point there with Jackyl . That chainsaw solo is truly bad ass.

    was revolutionary, for me Talking Heads which is considered American (even though all the talentwas born in Scotland)is very underrated and underplayed. Most people don't know what good music sounds like.

    I'll also second RHCP.
