Greatest Bands of the 1970s

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Smokie

Great songs - great band

102 Big Star

Best band of the 1970's. End of Discussion. Alternative Rock 10-20 years ahead of its time. An impossibility realized by everyone.

103 Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band

How come ZAPPA doesn't get a mention?

104 The Little River Band

Without a doubt one of the best - incredible harmonies and a unique guitar sound with a wide range of songs from ballads to rock.

A great Australian Band... I put them in the same category as The Eagles.

109 The Hudson Brothers

Oh, come on! Elvis couldn't carry their jockstraps.

110 Jefferson Starship

They were not "Starship" in the 1970's and should be named Jefferson Airplane for this list chronicling the bands of the 70's.

Starship it was, virtually all of the 70's.

111 Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
112 The Charlie Daniels Band

115 Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s They are known for songs like "Free Bird", "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Tuesdays Gone" .

Simply the best out of the whole list of 70's music!

The greatest band ever with the greatest song ever baring none.

Not on the list? Shame on everyone's visited this page lol

No way Skynyrd isn't in top 10. Their music is played more today than any other band. in my opinion their #1, great lyrics, great vocals, great guitar.

117 New Riders of the Purple Sage
118 Tower of Power

120 The Steve Miller Band

They have so many great hits and they are done with such beautiful melodies. They're a legend. They need to be higher on this list, along with many other bands. And Steve Miller has an amazing voice.

Seems awfully low. These guys filled arenas and their ranked below The Hudson Brothers?
