The Contenders: Page 5XW
Wow, this is a surprise... I love Sparks! They are clearly the best on the list so far. - asdfalexiaV1 Comment
I'm surprised to see them this high on the list... They're one of the best lesser known bands
Solid country rock -- associated with Linda Ronstadt, Eagles, Pure Prairie League, Poco.
Should be ranked much, much higher. Probably not because of some country, or too much.
A great band. They sold more records in 1970 than any other band. To put them at #94 is completely bonkers. The were easily in the top 20 bands of the era.
Great band to grow up listening to--rock at its finest.V2 Comments
Many hits. Their voices also were the sound of the 70s, at least in NYC.V1 Comment
Great Party band. Knew them.
Should be in the top 10 range. 1 of the best lead guitar players of all time, eddie hazel
Always underrated. Great rock.
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 - randomstofil
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
102? 102?!?!?! "Helplessly Hoping," "Judy Blue Eyes," "Our House," "Teach Your Children," "Find the Cost of Freedom"...classics, I say! And I was born in 1996!
These guys should be way higher. They have so many amazing hits and they're an outstanding band. I love the J. Geils Band. They need so much more credit and recognition.
Top 5 live band of all time... Limited catalogue yes... But enough for 2.5 to 3 hours of the most high energy- well played soulful R&B with outstanding lead showman...
Without a doubt one of the best - incredible harmonies and a unique guitar sound with a wide range of songs from ballads to rock.
A great Australian Band... I put them in the same category as The Eagles.V2 Comments
Really? #125? The best band of the 70s is #125? I think you people really need to adjust your music choices. It is just sad to see that you think so low of the Bee Gees. I am very disappointed in all of you!
How can you not love the pitch perfect harmonies of the Gibb brothers. The group that made disco dancing a night club favorite.
The bee gee is like the best band everV2 Comments
I love Marquee Moon! - MusicalPony
