Their songs have great and unique depth to them. They're not about sex and drugs and stuff. The songs and music videos are amazing. They should'nt be 31, laugh out loud.

Folk rock. Still rock. - naFrovivuS

71 The Talking Heads

They belong on this list. Top 20 at minimum. The punk leaders of the punk era. The Stop Making Sense your still one of the best shows I have seen out of the 200 I've been to. Maybe not THE best but certainly ground breaking.

Top ten for me. This music sounds just as good today as when it was released. I hear their sound in LOTS of current bands.

Sad to this band are not on th list, they are great.

Blue Oyster Cult are definitely in the top ten. America's most underrated rock band now that Cheap Trick has gotten R&R Hall Of Fame honours.

77 The Neighbourhood

The best of the best, come on people we all know that The Neighbourhood is the best rock band! They topped #1 in Billboard's chart in early June 2013 with their best song "Sweater Weather." The band is also know for their black and white imagery, it is a new rock band that was just formed in 2011. All my respect and love of music for this rock band, their music is open minded and great it should be #1.
