The Best American Band: The Hits List

I’m still thinking about the best American band, but while I am considering that weighty question I thought it might be interesting to note what the “hits” to our little blog indicates. Our blogging service tells us that the post about Steely Dan is by far the most popular of the 18 band-specific “best American band” postings. Whether this means that Steely Dan has more loyal fans, or just more fans who would read unremarkable blog postings, is unclear. In any case, the list of hits to Webnerhouse band postings, from most to least, is as follows:

Steely Dan

Eagles

The Beach Boys

The Doors

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Rage Against The Machine

The Allman Brothers

The Velvet Underground

The Cars

R.E.M.

The White Stripes

The Talking Heads

Pearl Jam

Aerosmith

ZZ Top

Nirvana

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Van Halen

  1. I don’t see how you can seriously contend Aerosmith is the best American band. The Beach Boys had by far a greater effect on the development of Rock; Creedence and the Eagles had more hits, the Doors were simply much better and I know that Bob’s secret personal favorite is Lynyrd Skynyrd (“The Ballad of Curtis Lowe” was always a song he could not stop humming to himself).
