223 Eagles Eagles The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner.

The best American Rock Band ever! Their best songs were in the 70's. Hotel California one of the Best Albums! Don Henley and Glen Frey had hit songs in the 80's!

This list is invalid with Eagles at 244...who makes this up?

One of the best all round bands of all time.

Really 258?

224 Asia

What the hell? 264?!?!? They are in my top 10!

How can you NOT list Asia, here? Their debut album hit like thunder, and I was infatuated with them! I admit, w/o John Wetton, the band was not the same. Thank god he came back! Long live Asia!

Sal Solo had one of the most unique voices in pop. Is it a Dream still resonates even now...

Ooh I Love em... and I think that I was the only one who did among my friends...

231 Visage
232 Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band
233 The Passions
234 Altered Images
235 Husker Du Husker Du Hüsker Dü was an American rock band formed in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1979. The band's continual members were guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton, and drummer/vocalist Grant Hart.

The best band of the 1980's. Period! The principal influence of...The Pixies, Nirvana and Green Day to mention but a few. One of the Huskers, Bob Mould, one of the world's greatest guitar players, is known as the Godfather of Grunge. Check out Zen Arcade; New Day Rising and Flip Your Wig. All 10/10.

THE BEST! A band that should have gotten more attention.

236 The Lemonheads
237 Dexys Midnight Runners

One of the most influential bands for decades. Should be in the top ten in my opinion...

238 Earth, Wind and Fire Earth, Wind and Fire

Faces was a very good album, Raise was a good album, but after that, they simply did not replicate the brilliance of the Seventies work... Easily one of the best bands EVER! Their horn work is still legendary!

Does no one listen to their music? You must all be crazy!
