Dude I was a big PJ fan back in the day and I still enjoy me some selected tunes but com'on... no chance. I am a serious Aerosmith fan so I guess I am a little biased but the have been around as long as the Stones and have more hits and sold more US records than any of the other bands discussed. They have sold out more shows than the others. Until someone else lasts for 32 years and still generates the fandom they do no one can put anyone above them.

I'm liking Aerosmith and Lynyrd Skynyrd is high on my list too.

I didn't look at the article before I voted, but damn Metallica sure rocked back in the day as well as Guns 'N' Roses. Welcome to the Jungle is one of my pre-game songs.

Re: The Greatest American Rock Band is...
 
Van Halen is #1 and Aerosmith, Metallica, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, REM, and Nirvana are also leaps and bounds better rock bands than Pearl Jam and I like Pearl Jam.

and am I the only one who think the Grateful Dead and Kiss are 2 of the most overrated bands? I like some of their stuff but they should never be in the talks when ranking "great" bands.

Metallica - 'nuff said

Queensryche? I have to say I really dig some of their old stuff (haven't heard any of the new), but I didn't think anyone else listened to them. Apparently I was wrong, but putting them ahead of Metallica, The Doors, Allmans, Springsteen, and Skynyrd? I don't think so.

to me, Pearl Jam is a niche band, just as KISS, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett...there are certain people who love them, some that tolerate, and some that don't care for them.

Rockers like Aerosmith, the Stones, Van Halen, et al. are rock bands that stand the test of time, and relate to more than one generation. depending on the flow of music, my kids may find other interests besides Pearl Jam.

the funny thing about polls like this is it's not really that they think Pearl Jam is #1, but that they can defend it easiest (generation), and allows people to talk about it and debate.

bon jovi should really be higher than 20 too... and no ozzie/black sabbath? come on...

of course i'm still more partial to soilwork/dark tranquility/darkest hour/at the gates/etc though, but i know that's just me...

Guys, the key word here is "AMERICAN", that's why no Ozzy, Black Sabbath, etc. LOL

I'm a huge PJ fan so I can't argue with the results.

I'm not sure I would call PJ a niche band, any PJ show I've been to you see quite an extensive age range of people there.

They're just a rock band in my book, perhaps our generation's Stones or Aerosmith... a band that will stand the test of time.

To me Guns and Roses is better than Pearl Jam. Event hough GnR hasnt been around for a long time that is part of what makes me like them more. Its kind of like they leave you wanting more of their music......

How about Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band, Jethrotall, and if the Eagles are considered a rock band than how about Chicago. How many number one albums and songs did they have? I saw them about three years ago and I did not realize how many hits they had. They were playing one hit after another for about 21/2 hours.I think Joe Coker could make the list.
