Britain seems to have produced most of the legendary bands that get mentioned quite often (beatles, zep, stones ect...) but America dwarfs Britain when it comes to great solo artists.

The Beach boys get my vote anyway i think.

well obviously dylan, sinatra, cash, elvis are all out, because they're individuals, not bands.

i'm also throwing out all time great acts such as bruce springsteen & the e street band, tom petty & the heartbreakers prince and the revolution and the jimi hendrix experience... if the lead singer's name is in the name of your band, you're eliminated on the fact that, although the band includes great musicians who have become famous in their own right, when it all started you were really nothing more than the backing band for the main attraction... the guy with his name in lights. so they're out.

i would have included bon jovi on that list, but i'd rather wipe my ass with a pinecone than listen to them.

so that leaves us with CCR, The Doors, CSNY, The Beach Boys, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Velvet Underground, Metallica & Aerosmith.

Frankly? take your pick.

wow, never thought I'd see that here.

what a phenomenal band. too bad they didn't stick around longer.

another recent band I'd mention is Spoon, who have put out a nice run of albums.

OK, so it seems we are all in agreement that Jane's Addiction is the greatest American band of all time, followed very closely by the Pixies.

Thank you for participating! I will now publish my findings.
