Anyone can edit Wikipedia.  Its a nice reference but some of the info isn't that accurate. Also, it was a poll and not everyone takes the polls. So that is as accurate as you want it to be.. 

Little Feat Alice in chains  lynrd Sknryd Montrose Aerosmith Allman brothersMothers Of invention 7  what the hell its my lucky number lol

Allman Bros. Chicago Transit Authority, Grand Funk, Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR, James Gang, Steppenwolf, Black Crowes

Will be a different list tomorrow - changes everyday!

agree some great choices here. so I can add them to my list also ;)

Wow, so tough. The Eagles, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd,The Allman Brothers Band, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

yeah it is tough.. i think when we get done posting here we will have our own top 10 list here on CRN. 

If this includes all of North America, I would throw in Rush & Triumph.
If it is United States only it is:

1. Aerosmith

2. Boston

3. ZZ Top (Zed Zed Top in Canada and Europe)

4. Van Halen

5. Bob Seger (and the silver bullet band)

Interesting poll! Here would be my top 5:

1: The Doors

2: Jimi Hendrix

3: Tom Petty

4: Bruce Springsteen

5: Pearl Jam

Ramones and Metallica certainly don't qualify for top 5 in my opinion...

Where is Led Zep, Skynyrd, 

AC DC, Eagles of course?

I had the Eagles on mine Bear, but AC/DC doesn't qualify as Aussies.

zeppelin doesnt either uk. I had a hard time answering this because my favorites are from uk.. :) maybe we need  a favorite bands from uk thread ;) 

Oh yeah, I read right over the Zep fellas, lol
