No Little Feat The Allman Bros. at 10 ? Far as i'm concerned, only Bruce Aerosmith and the Byrds could even be allowed on the same stage.

   I can see why The Jimi Hendrix Experience is not included because Noel and Mitch were on 3 of the four albums released in his short lifetime ,and they were British. Only "Band Of Gypsies" has Billy Cox and Buddy Miles as his backing band
 I am glad the Velvet Underground Made it because they almost get no credit. But I think a few should have been left off like Yo La Tengo and the Strokes. And I agree that The Stooges are too high up there and I'm not sure even if they should  be in there at all ( Raw Power is the only LP of theirs I like)
 The one glaring omission in my opinion is Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble. I have seen many concerts ,and he blew everyone else away the 4 times I saw him and his band.
  A few more they missed are : Butterfield Blues Band
                                              Parliament/Funkadelic
                                              Gvt Mule
                                              The Flying Burrito Brothers
      And what about the Band???????    I know Robbie Robertson is from Canada,but Buffalo Springfield is in there ,and Neil Young is from Ontario. Steve Miller is worth considering also. Maybe Foghat too !

Love the Burrito Bros but not sure if they make the cut. What about the Airplane and what followed?

I know this to be true, on any given day the Dead could have blown ANY of the bands ahead of them off the stage. Jus saying Bob Dylan a no show. cmon

Let me re-phraze that. The Dead could take you on a journey like no other  when they were on.

 Music might get boring after a while because it's heard so much............it gets played so much because it's good....made by good bands.................the list wasn't called "shitty bands I listen to because I'm tired of the best ones"..

Some serious omissions on that list but that's the way they always are. Lists in themselves are almost an insult to great musicians/bands period -

I just want to say I am proud to be part of a D-Town thread

The Ramones belong in the top 10 great American bands. They started a new genre punk rock.

I need to look up Yo La Tengo at number 48 Better than Zappa?

o.k.  looked up Yo La Tengo and found this funny article about where their name came from.

 

The name came from a baseball anecdote. During the 1962 season, New York Mets center fielder Richie Ashburn and Venezuelan shortstop Elio Chacón found themselves colliding in the outfield. When Ashburn went for a catch, he would scream, "I got it! I got it!" only to run into Chacón, who spoke only Spanish. Ashburn learned to yell, "¡Yo la tengo! ¡Yo la tengo!" instead. In a later game, Ashburn happily saw Chacón backing off. He relaxed, positioned himself to catch the ball, and was instead run over by left fielder Frank Thomas, who understood no Spanish and had missed a team meeting that proposed using the words "¡Yo la tengo!" as a way to avoid outfield collisions.[2] After getting up, Thomas asked Ashburn, "What the heck is a Yellow Tango?".[

 

What the heck is a yellow tango?

We all know these lists are a joke,Janes Addiction,Faith No More and Korn made a far larger impact in their era than X and the friggin Pixies,even though I'm not a fan Bon Jovi was and is still friggin huge,at least they gave the mighty Van Halen props.Wilco and guy?Those people didn't sell or influence garbage.Not to mention 70's icons the Doobie Brothers and Bob Segar and the silver bullet band

Agree that Janes Addiction should be on the list.  I missed them in my post above. 

Faith No More.....you could make a case they should be there.......just barely if they make it at all. 

Korn blows. 

Just cause Bon Jovi is / was popular doesn't mean they belong on this list.  They would be right near the top of my list for most over-rated bands ever. 

And why would anyone want to add unbelievably boring artists like Bob Segar and the Doobie Brothers to a "greatest" list. 

And sorry.......if you don't understand the importance of X and The Pixies on music then you aren't qualified to make posts like the one you did.  Just my opinion........
