BEST AMERICAN BAND?

A simple question, with no simple answer..."who is the greatest American rock band?" It all depends on what matters to you - musical chops, groundbreaking, influence, popularity, longevity?

Its what they want to give me

Arturo Vega, creative director, was with the band from the very beginning talks about the band logo he designed and the band as the ultimate American band:
"I saw them as the ultimate all-American band. To me, they reflected the American character in general – an almost childish innocent aggression," Vega told the writer Jim Bessman, discussing how he dreamed up the sign. "I thought the great seal of the president of the United States would be perfect for the Ramones, with the eagle holding arrows – to symbolise strength and the aggression that would be used against whoever dares to attack us – and an olive branch, offered to those who want to be friendly. But we decided to change it a little bit. Instead of the olive branch, we had an apple tree branch, since the Ramones were American as apple pie. And since Johnny was such a baseball fanatic, we had the eagle hold a baseball bat instead of the arrows."
