    ...but they are 4/5 Canadian, so I don't know if they count as American. NORTH American, but maybe not Ameican. Plus Robbie they seemed to have a deep respect for the South because of Levon, Ronnie Hawkins and other blues idols they were friends with.

    What would rock and roll bands be like without Buddy Holly and the Crickets leading the way?

    The Doors and Metallica get honorable mentions.

    but dude, to say that a band that puts out a cd with 12 three minute, cookie cutter songs is the best "active" american band is ludicrous.

    To name a few that are better than KOL:

    The Black Crowes (as mentioned earlier)
    North Mississippi Allstars
    Tea Leaf Green
    Umphrey's McGee
    The Black Keys
    My Morning Jacket

    All of those bands are more original and play better music than KOL.

    but you have to include them if anything based on sales and longevity alone.

    I forgot about the Crickets. Buddy Holly is an American icon, as are Roy Orbison, Frank Sinatra, and Hank Sr.

    Never seen a group personify "rock band" more than those guys. Kick ass music, partying way too hard, etc.

    Their last album kicked ass, too. It was good to have them back - I had grown tired of Stipe's whining.

    Their first five albums were amazing. For Whom the Bell Tolls is one of my favorites- when Lars makes the bass drums sound like horses running- that's freaking awesome. Like many, the first time I saw Metallica was on MTV when they came out with One, and it absolutely blew me away how fast they were playing.

    I really like REM a lot to. Some of their stuff sucks though- like Everybody Hurts and Happy Shiny People. But "It's the End of the World and I feel fine" is awesome.

    Nirvana, Van Halen, Aerosmith, the Eagles- all great to.

    Yeah, free copyrighted music via napster was wrong. But Metallica fought legitimate digital distribution channels kicking, screaming, and whining. They even spoke out in front of Congress against it. If it were up to Metallica, mp3s, iPods, etc. would not exist.

    They are a joke now, but this is a non-debate. It is Aerosmith. Think of all the rock bands that subsequentally ripped them off. Guns-n-Roses for example.

    What is your rationale for having the Eagles in the list but not CCR?

    It's like Miles Davis on a guitar solo sometimes. Factoring song writing, mastery of instruments, and chemistry within the band, it's really not that close in my book.

    I'm a little surpised no on has mentioned the Pixies. Not only are they great, but they are possibly the most influential band over the last 25 years.

    Also on my list:
    Don Caballero (instrumental, I'd be surprised if anyone else on the board has ever heard of them)
    Caspian (another awesome unknown instrumental band)
    Sonic Youth
    Talking Heads
    Fugazi
    Isis (incredible metal band)
    At The Drive-In (Hispanic members, but from El Paso)
    The Mars Volta (former At The Drive-In members)

    Lynyrd Skynyrd is, hands down, the best American rock band ever.

    ...I called Lynyrd Skynyrd the best American band ever while sporting a Jimi Hendrix avatar.


    OMlawdog & olemissbydamn will be providing the stalker link to this glaring contradiction in December.

    I grew up listening to my dad playing his CCR Chronicles record on the record player. Everytime I here a song of theirs on the radio or in a movie it takes me back to being 5-6 year old. BTW, I dont know if any of you have heard them recently, actually Credence Clearwater Revistited now that Fogerty split with them years ago, you wouldnt know he wasnt still there. I saw them in Tunica a couple years ago and they had this guy that looked like a Mechanic doing lead and a blind man couldnt have told it wasnt Fogerty.

    Second the Grateful Dead. Allman Brothers should be up there. Phish is the best band still touring, although not mainstream.
