Why is this on the list? It's not even remotely classic. - Gruunge
One of the most underrated band of all time... especially in the USV 1 Comment
With songs like Live Forever, Supersonic, Don't Look back in anger, Morning Glory and Even Wonderwall, it is unbelivieble that Oasis is'nt included on this list.
Liam Gallagher has the best rock'n'roll voice of all time and Noel Gallagher is a genius at songwriting, as well as guitarsolos with such emotion and brilliance. The whole Oasis style is very simple, but with such simpleness, still being able to create such amazing music, is absolutley genius!
I love sonic youth. I watched nirvana interviews and he says they were a good band. I listened to them and loved them
Should be far higher than 141, top 25 at least
"We are Blood Brothers"...How that sounds.
Iron Maiden best one! :>
Every time I hear the Epitaph I get chills. Could never yet enough hearing it once, I used to play it over and over. The music seems to enclose you, its absolutely beautiful.
King Crimson should definitly be in the top because they had the most unique style along with very complex musicV 1 Comment
Everyone has their opinions, but 149 on a list of greatest classic rock bands is a complete and total outrage. In my top 10 and without question are a top 25 band of all time! ( Were they omitted for some reason or by accident and later thrown in? ) Great guitar play / dual leads, great soulful voice, great lyrics, incredible rhythm section. All segments of this band are first class. They invented Southern Rock for God's sake! A true BAND in every sense. Only problem is the untimely deaths. I can only imagine the great stuff we never had the pleasure to hear from Duane Allman...
Agree entirely. Absolutely in the top 5 bands of all time. Listen to "Live at the Fillmore" and every single song is stunningly original in terms of composition, vocals, guitar, drumming, organ, etc. Truly an exceptional band.
How are they not in the top 10? Who is voting? This is the absolute best live band ever. Listen to "
Live at Fillmore East" and then tell us what you think.

Another underrated band that should be higher on the list. I love these guys. One of my top bands.
Their 1970-1975 stuff is as good as it gets!
Why they down here what
These guys should be remembered for more than just "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks." Their earlier stuff, such as "Musta Got Lost" "Give it To Me" and "Whammer Jammer" ranks among some of the greatest rock I've ever heard.
25 or 6 to 4; Beginnings; Colour My World; 'enough said; If listening to one of these doesn't take you back to the 70's you are either too young or too stoned back then to know GOOD music!V 1 Comment
Listen to their self titled album and Brothers in Arms album. Great collections of music and the best work from Dire Straits in my opinion.
Selling in excess of 120 million albums Dire Straits should be very high up on the rankings.
WHAT? Should Be In The Top Ten!
Have you ever listen dire stairts songs money for nothing sultans of swing
If you listen it you can understand what is better
The Moody Blues have been going strong from 1966 to the present day. They have led the pack in musical style and in making their own music. They have taught me much about the world and life and how it works. I've met my best friends because of the link we fans have because of this band. They have a nearly sold out cruise coming up in March, fastest selling boat ever. :) They deserve to be #1!
Criminally under-rated in my opinion. The Core 7 albums from 67-73 were amazing, but Bluejays, Octave, Long Distance Voyager and Strange Times are not so far behind them, and even the weaker albums (The Present, Keys of the Kingdom and December) are far stronger than most could ever manage to produce (the two singles aside, even I wouldn't shout about The Other Side of Life and Sur la Mer).
"Never comes the day" was the beginning and today it is still as beautiful as then. When Justin sings "if only... " the earth stops turning and hold his breath. Only a few days and then... Spirits of the Western sky! My ears are waiting and my heart too. Justin Hayward... What a man!
The Moodies never made me blue. Always sounded great in concert.V 14 Comments
Why are the Beach Boys so low? Their surf songs are great pop tracks, but for those who still aren't convinced, "Pet Sounds" and "SMiLE" are among the greatest albums ever. Heck, when PAUL MCCARTNEY named "God Only Knows" his favorite song, there's got to be something.
Only group to seriously challenge the Beatles at the time
Just sublime harmonys and the sound of young america in the 60's.
With God only know's one of the simplest and greatest love songs ever
I love this guy! He has great music and some of his songs, like Rain on the Scarecrow, are based on his own life. He should be higher on the list.V 1 Comment
First album, one the best ever ever ever, still holds up today.
