I love Marquee Moon! - MusicalPony

103 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.

104 Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band

How come ZAPPA doesn't get a mention?

107 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.

108 The Hollies
109 The Undertones
110 Mott the Hoople Mott the Hoople V 1 Comment
111 New Riders of the Purple Sage
112 Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
113 Tower of Power
114 Spirit
115 The Hudson Brothers

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

116 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?

119 Showaddywaddy

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.

120 Rainbow

Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio and Cozy Powel how muc better than that can you get
