Who’s the Best Rock Band?
Who’s the best rock band
That ever strode the land?
Some say it’s the Beatles that hold that crown,
Others say it was the Stones who brought them down.
But if you don’t mention Hendrix or the Floyd
There’s a bunch of people who’d get annoyed.
Then of course, there’s the Doors
Who’d win great applause?
Or Dylan or the Byrds who’d have a cause?
Or maybe it’s Zappa
Who was looking so dapper?
But don’t forget Cream
When they were at full steam.
Then the Sex Pistols and Clash both had a bash,
Along with Crosby, Stills and Nash.
The Who deserve a mention
Or Oasis full of pretention
And Neil Young and Crazy Horse
Have run that course.
Black Sabbath and Deep Purple have that Heavy Metal
And Led Zep and AC/DC kept them on their mettle
Then there’s Pete Green’s Fleetwood Mac
And the Airplane, Dead and Metallica, had a crack.
Then there’s a Kink
To make you think.
Some worshipped Nirvana and some even Queen
The days of Rock were loud and mean.
Roy Harper is my cup of tea
But not too many agree with me.
With a lot of the new bands I wouldn’t know where to start,
But for my money the best Rock Band is
I know exactly what the best Rock Band is – it’s the one you like best!
