104 The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

One of the best front men in rock

I admit not everyone's cup of tea but one of the most entertaining bands I ever saw. Their Christmas shows in Glasgow were legendary.

A great band for the 70's. Saw them many times live and really enjoyed them

108 Steve Miller Band Steve Miller Band The Steve Miller Band is an American rock band formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California. The band is led by Steve Miller on guitar and lead vocals.

They didn't do many real big songs but the about 10 they did do are amazing. So they should be in the top 80 at least

I absolutely love this band, and these really are some amazing songs JET AIRLINER! THE JOKER! ROCK'N ME! COME ON MAN!

112 Duran Duran Duran Duran Duran Duran are an English new wave/synthpop band formed in Birmingham in 1978. They were a successful band of the 1980s and a leading band in the MTV-driven "Second British Invasion" of the US.
113 The Cure The Cure The Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member.

Great band, but I respectfully believe they don't belong on this list, more of an "alternative" band than Rock and Roll, but definitely amazing musicians.

Amazing music. Everyone has to listen to them

What nobody remembers them? That's insane

What a shame so many great bands are missing. Kansas, Caravan, 10cc, ABBA to name a few

120 The Specials

Ska-Reggae-punk with a social responsibility and attitude at it's best
