Pistols.

They influenced more bands today than anyone since Chuck Berry and The Beatles.

The Pistols influenced N'sync. That's about it.

Led Zeppelin. 70's Who was pretty tight too. I always put "Wont Get Fooled Again" on if it's on a jukebox, as you get your moneys worth!

I wonder how many votes BOC will garner

Can.

I'm listening to a live recording of Kraftwerk with a lineup of Michael Rother, Klaus Dinger, Ralf and Florian right now, and it makes a convincing argument for them as well. Neu! and Kraftwerk melded.

the velvet underground.

i like songs from the sex pistols, rolling stones, fleetwood mac, and the ramones the best from the list. but im not and never was too familiar with any of them.

VU only released 2 albums in the 70s that were not nearly as good as the ones done in the late 60's

TomAz
03-02-2007, 12:48 PM
actually Loaded is my favorite VU album.

kreutz2112
03-02-2007, 12:49 PM
Really? I am more partial toward their S/T album.

and i will plead ignorance on this one. i thought the lou reed albums were from the 70's. could be wrong. not the first time.

TomAz

Loaded came out in 1970. "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" is the most overlooked VU song. IMO.

I will go home and listen.

Oh! Sweet Nothin' is an amazing song. One of the best ever written. But most of the VU stuff was in the 60s. and, Kreutz, don't count Squeeze as a VU album. Please, just don't.

Zeppelin does sound like a good choice until you remember... oh, wait. I was thinking III came out in '69 too. I guess I can understand picking them even though you're missing their best album

Queen have one more album and... yeah, I'm gonna say their best album is from the 70s.

Was Neil Young disqualified because he's not a band? He put out nine studio records and the six of them I've heard are all stunning.

I think touring grosses are a better indicator of what decade a band belongs to than date of album releases. Zeppeling was big in the 60's but epic (as far as popularity) by the 70's.

I have been treating these as dealing only with output from the stated decade.

Though, honestly, I think Queen would gain more than LZ by including their entire catalog because they'd be adding more albums. And while the first LZ album may be better than any 80s or 90s Queen album almost all of those Queen albums are good.

I saw the Ramones in the 80's when they were all still alive. I saw Blue Oyster Cult in the '00's at a NASCAR race. My favorite was the Doors - but you didn't list them, so I had to choose Led Zeppelin. I must say my best concert in the 70's was Genesis, on their first American tour. I saw them in the same 600 seat auditorium that I saw the Ramones.
