I'm sitting here watching the Pearl Jam Live at the Garden DVD. Are they the greatest American rock band? The music has more than stood up over the past fifteen or so years. I'm gonna say, yup, they're the greatest American rock band. :D:D:tup:

 

Who else could it be?

It changes depending on my mood, but I really like The Doors.

The Doors.

 

And the only reason I say that is because the Rolling Stones weren't smart enough to die when they were at their prime, and then went ahead and made every album from Tattoo You on.

Rolling Stones are British. Somebody must've kicked me in the nuts as a kid when the Doors were on. I can't stand 'em. Stones on the other hand :D. Including British bands makes it a tough call.

I knew I'd miss a few. I should've had them on the list too.

Aerosmith hasn't been a rock band since about 1979.

Was that before or after the Sgt Pepper movie?

As far as influencing music, Pearl Jam and Nirvana are tied, but Elvis was the friggin Man hands down.

I voted for Van Halen only because they were the first American band to pop into my mind (after first thinking of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and The Who).

Well, well, well. Look at the reading comprehension skills on wiegie. :D Show off.

 

Elvis and the Beach Boys are two that definitely deserve mention. But the Ramones and Velvet Underground? I like them, but I don't even consider them in the running for best Rock 'n' Roll band.

Elvis is / was a rock band? :D Elvis was all sorts of things, including great but not a rock band of any description.

This poll is kind of flawed since Creedence isn't on there.

I have that too. Excellent. I also have the Springsteen at the Garden DVD.

 

I went for Guns'n'Roses because they were harder edged than the rest, arguably. Where's the Dead Kennedys option?
