Greatest Rock Bands of the '70sisoldmysoulforrocknroll
The Contenders: Page 5XW
Truly underrated band, often sharing members with the Eagles, Buffalo Springfield, Loggins and Messina, and Steely Dan, among others.
One of the best selling groups of ALL TIME! They were so much more musically talented than the majority of bands higher up on this list; they incorporated jazz into all of their songs. They had great vocals too. Top ten material.
Chicago transit authority is the go to album really good good rock
Great first album - then down hill from thereon.
They are the most underrated band ever!V3 Comments
Camel are great and worth adding to anyone's collection. I don't remember too much about their music so will refrain from comment.
Maybe a little more jazz than rock influenced but a great band
Buy the mirage album and you be the judge
Awesome group! Loved their songs!
Love Hurts.. if you go to the Philippines, you will find it on all good videoke machines, and you can belt it out unashamedly without criticism (well u don't understand the language anyway), but it lends itself to anyone being able to sing it well, and enjoyably. The only judge is the machine, which will no doubt score u highly. Worth a trip for that alone. Naz rated too low
This band is also underrated.their hardcore music was amazing - zxmV1 Comment
How can a band that has China Grove, Listen to the Music, Takin' it to the Streets, Black Water and other classics not be found on this list! The Doobie Brothers belong!
True doobie brothers are great and for sure should be on this list super underrated I even saw them live a few nights ago believe it or not
Unforgettable songs for rock loversV4 Comments
By looking at these ratings I wonder how many were actually around in the 70s. I was and wish this music would return
VERY UNDERRATED BAND, crank up "Man on your mind"
Wow... People should go out & buy a greatest hits album to get reacquainted with this powerhouse group! Lady, Lonesome Loser, and Happy Anniversary Baby.. Got you on my minnnddd!
