    I got even money that all you guys sing along whenever Desperado or Hotel California comes on the radio.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Well many times in my life I've been ruunin down the road in a flatbed Ford with 7 women on my mind

    I read that part of the Eagles breakup was that they peaked at Hotel California and couldn't top it

    Much like Fleetwood Mac and Rumours

    All ya Lefties--here ya go

    And if the radio tuner got stuck I would immediately accelerate and aim towards the closest bridge piling.

    The Smashing Pumpkins are the greatest rock band of all time.

    Okay, define "rock band" and distinguish them from other similar genres.
    And then, name the best rock band name. My fave: Denver's own "the 4Nicators", although it prevented them from going big time. Sad.

    When I lived in London there was an all girl band that played in local pubs and had a few appearances on BBC called "Cunning Stunts". They weren't all that good, but, er, perhaps best band name ever?

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    The Who
    Led Zeppelin
    Queen
    The E Street Band
    Dead Kennedys

    The Eagles became a rock band once Joe Walsh joined. Hotel California is one of the five greatest rock songs ever written (Baba O'Riley, Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hotel California, Born to Run).

    "It's a girl my lord in a flat bed Ford, slowing down to take a look at me," is the greatest lyric ever written. It combines girls, religion, and trucks.

    I notice Bon Jovi has not been brought up as a contender.

    This is good.

    You're all wrong. Buddy Holly and the Crickets.

    How about a band with members that actually studied music?
    Chicago

    "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    It should be based on something besides opinion. What band has beat the Stones in longevity, popularity, ticket sales, album sales? They're still selling out arenas!

  • tim_stim_s Senior Member Posts: 1,859 Senior Member

    well **** U2 and Aerosmith also pump out songs and can sell out arenas......doesn't mean any of them have put out anything decent since the 80's (earlier for the stones & aerosmith)

    longevity? don't know when to quit

    sales? have you seen the #1 selling artists and top TV shows these days?

    popularity? have you seen our President
