I love CCR. Their greatest hit in my opinion is Heard it throught th grapevine and the rest are good songs too. This should be in the top ten. CCR FOREVER!

Their music is absolutley timeless and their music is more unique than any other that I can think of. Not too mention they had arguably the greatest frontman in music history.
The perfect band. Intelligent, talented, poetic, and creative. With all four member having each of those qualities. Best damn rock band ever in my opinion.Listen to samples
A great influence for all scenarios, been in their show REALLY good!
With the permission of Black Sabbath, the most influential metal band ever existed.
They are the Metalgods. Don't need explain nothing.More comments about Judas PriestListen to samples
Everyone should love Heart if you don't you have no taste in good music
Heart rocks! Ann's voice and Nancy's guitar was a killer combination!Listen to samples
Jimi Hendrix had the potential to rule the rock scene for decades, but his unfortunate young death put an early end to his career.
Jimi hendrix greatest guitar player ever, nuff saidListen to samples
van halen is great!
eddie is the best guitarist!
Eddie is the best guitarist, David is the yes vocalist, Mike is the best bassist, and Alex isn't the best, but he's got some skills-Van Halen is an unbeatable band.
I totally agree! Eddie is the greatest guitarist whose ever lived! And yes, with David, they were the best! Too bad egos got in the way.

One of the highest album selling bands in history, The Eagles showed the world what a real band should be.Listen to samples
Should be top 10! Jon's voice, Richie's solos, all of them are nice!
Biggest live audiences, most live shows, most dedicated fans.

Cheap Trick is amazing, but they are so underrated. Surrender should be rated one of the top songs ever!
At one time they were the best in the world. They still are great.
Somewhere, somehow, there is always a Cheap Trick song playing.More comments about Cheap Trick
Just listen to Sharp dressed man, trust me it might even be the greatest Song ever put to paper, let alone the greatest rock song. Add to that Billy Gibbons was Jimi Hendrix's favorite guitarist, his sound is utterly epic and his vocal range immense! Dusty Hill is a great bassist and Frank Beard's drumwork is masterful. Add to that the sheer longevity and range of their music, they formed in 1969 and are still going! Every album is an evolution and a masterpiece! Enough said...
Though I was never a fan of Jeff Lynne's voice all is songs are instant legends and the rest of the band are incredible, particularly bassist Kelly Groucutt, who is now the vocalist.
King Crimson should definitly be in the top because they had the most unique style along with very complex musicListen to samples
Bachman Turner Overdrive also known as B.T.O. is such a great band! Just listen to there greatest hits. "You Aint Seen Nothing Yet" One of there most popular songs. Also hit the soundtrack for Joe Dirt along with quite a few other great classic rock bands. But be wise, Vote for B.T.O. They are the best!
Can't believe you guys forgot poison WTH! ONE OF THE BEST.
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
Only group to seriously challenge the Beatles at the time
Most underrated band of the 80s I would say. If they had the same fate as lynyrd skynyrd they would be remembered just as well as them. 38 special was unlike any other southern rock band they are actually one of the best bands to see in concert in my opinion
25 or 6 to 4; Beginnings; Colour My World; 'nuf 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!
I love alice cooper he is my god in my opinion he should be number one he is the god of rock without him there wouldn't be a lot of bands we have today.
the hollies have been around longer than must of these bands and have more songs out there then any other group they are still playing after all these years and they finally did make it to the hall of fame they have been under rated.
One of the best rock artists of all time. I'm really surprised that he is not higher in the list. You can't compare to most of his songs like "Stroke" and "My kinda lover". The are all just timeless classics!
Spirit's music encompassed several genres including psychedelia, blues rock, folk blues singer songwriter, hard rock, progressive, jazz fusion, mastering most of them without peers while at other times uniquely incorporated different styles into a single theme.
