I love the Cars. These guys have a unique style and many great hits. The Cars are so great and so underrated. It makes me sad that Benjamin Orr died. R.I.P. Benjamin Orr. You will be missed. Cars forever!

142Lynyrd SkynyrdLynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s.

The greatest band ever with the greatest song ever baring none.

Putting Skynyrd here is just an act of spite.

Are you kidding? By the end of the 70s they were one of the top bands in album sales and an arena icon! Incredible singers and musicians. What's not to love.

But at least they edged out The Partridge Family.

At the time the only band to ever have 4 consecutive triple platinum albums! How can they only rank 131st! Top 10 band for sure!

A great band, they deserve better than this

146BlondieBlondie is an American rock band founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s.

Debbie, Chris and the gang were great and they were flexible doing a lot of genres. Not a lot of bands can make that claim.
