102 Jefferson Starship
103 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

Shinedown is honestly a greater band then some of the other bands, not that it should be number one, but surly it should be higher than 73.

The band consists of bassist and lead vocalist, Tyson Ritter, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Nick Wheeler, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist, Mike Kennerty, and drummer Chris Gaylor.

IF we are talking American... How can the All American Rejects only be 78?
