BEST AMERICAN BAND?

4 Posts

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?

Pixies - Here Comes Your Man
Pamela Talese

Pixies

I nominate Pixies for Best American Band and selected this strange 1989 clip because we see youthful Pixies already making a hot mess, and also because there's a bridge, slight though it may be, to Drew Baird's selection of the Beach Boys. I'd think a Mash-up of Here Comes My Man and God Only Knows could work quite nicely. And, as with The Beach Boys, sonically Pixies influenced waves of bands that followed in their rich, reverby, dark-light/stop-start/quiet-loud wake. Pixies, I say.
