Poetry – Who’s the Best Rock Band?

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

Captain Beefheart!
