103 The Hudson Brothers

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

104 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.

105 Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
106 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?

Love them in concert, everyone is singing and dancing!

Seemed to me to be the most popular of the rock and roll revivalists of the 1970s. Really easy to listen to and get the feet tapping.

118 Boney M Boney M Boney M. is a vocal group created by German record producer Frank Farian. Originally based in Germany, the four original members of the group's official line-up were Jamaican-born singers Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell from Aruba.

120 The Police The Police The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. They are most known for their songs "Message In A Bottle", "Don't Stand So Close To Me", "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", "Roxanne", more.

Great. That's all to be said.
