Best American Rock and Roll Band -- Dead surging; Allmans still # 1

The bands gaining ground include the E Street Band, Doors, Replacements, Ramones, and Beach Boys. New entries incude The Eagles, REM, and Sonic Youth.

What did one Dead Head say to the other Dead Head when the drugs ran out? "This music sucks!"

We had two rules: 1) You can't choose an individual, so that eliminates Dylan, Elvis, and arguably Jimi, and Bruce. 2) We tolerated a smattering of Canadians, so that keeps The Band and Crazy Horse in the running.
