The 10 best rock bands ever

A provocative article on MSNBC by Blogcritic's Eric Olsen on "The 10 best rock bands ever". Actually, not really that provocative since most of the selections are pretty obvious. But there are a few surprises with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Sly and the Family Stone, The Ramones and The Velvet Underground.

And just as interesting is the accompanying poll asking "Which one of these bands should be dropped from the Top 10 list?"

Based on 71,449 responses here's a tabulation of who folks think should be dropped:

Sly and the Family Stone - 29%
Velvet Underground - 25%
Ramones - 13%
U2 - 10%
Bob Marley and the Wailers - 9%
The Grateful Dead - 7%
The Beatles - 2%
The Rolling Stones - 2%
Pink Floyd - 2%
Led Zeppelin - 1%

Interesting that Led Zeppelin comes ahead of Beatles & The Rolling Stones on being dropped from the listing. More commentary on the selections on The Rock and Roll Report.
