47 Grateful Dead Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead embodies Americana, a true national treasure. By far the greatest American band

Seriously? They were neglected? Wow.

As American as Apple Pie! Greatest concert experience one can possibly have...

Uniquely American. They are the 60s, and kept going. The Dead are top 10 no doubt. Hendricks, R.E.M., Nirvanna, Springsteen, the Dead, Allmond Bros., Doors all right there.

48 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Paramore is my number one favorite band in the whole world, and I've been listening to them since their first amazing album All We Know Is Falling. Hayley Williams is so cool and shes got an awesome singing voice and she writes her own songs. She's my hero! Paramore should actually be number one! I don't care what the haters say, Paramore rules the world!

Come on they are WAY better than 28!

59 ZZ Top ZZ Top ZZ 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.

ZZ Top is underrated on this list. Must be in the top 5 of the USA.

60 Chicago

This band after 40 years still creating original music and has sales which puts them much higher, what's the deal?

Their low position is down to lack of knowledge of their early work. This alone should place them in the top 10.

How are they so low.

Why isn't this band in the top ten? they are all tru musicians and are only second to the beach boys in sales of american bands
