197UFOUFO are an English rock band that was formed in 1969. They became a transitional group between early hard rock and heavy metal and the new wave of British heavy metal.
This band should be on this list because of guitarist Michael Schenker alone, even though he didn't last long in the band. His work on songs like Rock Bottom, Lights Out and Out In The Street makes the band worthy enough to be on this list!
198Lenny KravitzLeonard Albert "Lenny" Kravitz is an American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer, whose "retro" style incorporates elements of rock, blues, soul, R&B, funk, jazz, reggae, hard rock, psychedelic, pop, folk, and ballads.
Seriously?! Some crap I've never even heard of is somewhere close to 10 and Lenny is not even on the list?! People are you even vaguely sane?

Loverboy's hit singles, particularly "Turn Me Loose" and "Working for the Weekend", have become arena rock staples and are still heard on many classic rock and classic hits radio stations across the United States and Canada.
