Greatest Southern Rock Bands Ever

mdp1970

The Top TenXW

1Lynyrd SkynyrdLynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s.

These guys and the Allman Brothers are the best, but these guys win by a little bit. The new Skynyrd line-up isn't too bad either, with Danny Van Zant being the new singer. The only original member left is Gary Rossington, and Artemis Pyle but he got kicked out. It sucks tragedy hit such a good band.

They are simply irresistible. Surprise why they are not at the top. To me they are the best rock band from the South. Their legacy will live forever. Long Live Lynyrd Skynyrd.

close between allman brothers, these guys and ZZ Top but Lynard Skynard is really the best - sharm7064

There is no doubt the legacy Lynyrd Skynyrd has left will be remembered for years to come.. Greatest band in my opinion

2The Allman Brothers BandThe Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman, as well as Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson.
3ZZ TopZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

Really look at all the stuff ZZ Top has put out over the years. I bet if you're a true rock n roll fan you will know, like, and be able to sing along w/ minimum 30 songs! I recently started downloading a few ( 5-6 ) of their earlier songs & ended up w/ 63! And actually knew all / most of the lyrics for

4Charlie Daniels Band
5The Marshall Tucker Band
6Creedence Clearwater RevivalCreedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

If CCR were a southern rock band, which they are not (from California) they would be at or near top of this list.

The top 4 here (Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR) are all great, but I'd change the order to 1. CCR 2. ZZ Top 3. Lynyrd Skynyrd 4. Allman Brothers.
