The Jacksons where the greatest band to ever grace the stage with perfection of dance, vocal, style and fashion. Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, Marlon, and Michael became icons before they became adults. The first group to have all four of their releases to hit number 1 their debute year, and became a global success.

as much as I appreciate AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac ruled the 70's, and it all started when rumours came out
Do not underestimate the creativity.
They have produced great music for decades, vastly underrated in my humble opinion.
One of the greatest bands to come out of the American Midwest. Heck, out of America!
And they are still rocking to this day with all four original members. Only Rush and Aerosmith can make that claim today.

Top selling group of the 1970's deserves better than 61.
I believe they deserve a place in the top 10!
R.I. P Karen Anne Carpenter
A joke that the Carpenters is this low down when they are the greatest selling!
God bless you Karen C!
Never equaled... Day After Day, Baby Blue, No Matter What, Take It All, Without You ^^ Lonely You... just some of the many great songs Pete Ham ^^ Tom Evans wrote in their short-lived career... Badfinger, one of my favorite band next to The Beatles.
THE pioneering heavy metal band, simply no one could match their style back then and one of the greatest things to ever come out of Great Britain. period
Van Halen came out in 1978
they were the best band I ever heard
they definitely deserve to be in the Top 10
No other band can touch them... Their output was immense and varied (50+ studio albums) and constantly evolving. One of the trippiest and heaviest bands there ever was! Their fantastic lightshows took their music to a whole new level!
Wow, this is a surprise... I love Sparks! They are clearly the best on the list so far.
I'm surprised to see them this high on the list... They're one of the best lesser known bands
Awesome band. Went to see them at Summerfest in milwaukee, Wi (worlds largest music fest- 10 days of every kind of music), rained out. Went to bar nearby. Who walks in, right, Allman Bros. Small stage with instruments. THEY WENT UP & PLAYED!
Listen to blue sky, ramblin man and Whipping Post. Great songs
Has influenced so many musicians in so many ways. One of the most original and yet most copied thereafter bands of its time. Still valid and amazing today.
the first punk rock group guys if you listen to blitzkrieg bop and loudmouth or even ramona (which is one of my favourites) you will see why
I wouldn't expect them to make the top, but if yr going to mention The Who and other great (60's & 70's) bands, you can't go past Alvin Lee and his fellow Woodstocker's. Check their set out towards end of Woodstock DVD. I'm Going Home played (loud and hard), by these hard "rockers", makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up every time!
Not in the top ten but, were incredible just the same; hard to beat their first 2 albums rod evans of deep purple fame, one of the greatest vocalists of all time; rhino shreds the guitar on the 1st album, spacey acid rock at it's finest...
One of the best rock bands of all time their 1972 album argus a masterpiece beat out deep purple machine head for best album of the year in the U.K. on my list they are #1 for sheer output and musical ability, even with a diff. Guitar player after their wishbone four release, most bands couldn't hold a candle to them, also check out their 1st lp, and the new england lp
