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?

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Drew Baird

Since I asked...

...I better answer. Beach boys were popular, had phenomenal musical ability, massively influenced those who came after them, and had incredible longevity ( even though we probably want to forget KoKoMo)...but what seals it for me is the way they bridged from pure pop/surf to more thoughtful music (much like the Beatles) and Pet Sounds is the culmination of that transition to me. Still holds up today as one of the greatest of all time.
