Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were the GOAT American rock band
 
And that shouldn't even be a hot take. Sorry Eagles/Bruce. Overall their hits were better, their albums were better.

From an iconic song standpoint I'm not sure who beats out Lynyrd Skynyrd at least where ive spent most of my life(the south). Who has 2 more iconic songs than Freebird and Simple Man? I'm not saying the answer is nobody...im saying it isn't a long list. They just didn't last long with the plane crash. Id say their best matches Pettys best but he has a longer track record of course.

It's a good point, although I guess iconic song wise the Eagles come somewhat close to this with Hotel California and Take It Easy.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Allman Brothers Band and Funkadelic just off the top of my head. Tom Petty is nowhere near.

How crazy is it that you can argue that Britain has the top 5 GOAT bands with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd :eek:

The gap is so glaring, it's unbelievable. Even when you go deeper into it, they stay outpacing us even if you look at maybe the top 30 or so. Crazy.

Yeah, you can also add Queen, David Bowie, U2 (they formed in Ireland but a couple of the members were English born), Radiohead, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple...

I think The Byrds deserve mention here.

Also, wtf about no mention of Simon & Garfunkle? I guess they were more folk than rock, but that line often blurs.

Those groups were so short-lived it's hard to give them GOAT status.

I love CCR, but they suffer the same fate.

I'm surprised Metallica hasn't been mentioned. They only have one bad studio album on their resume (St. Anger) and they're still going strong +35 years after they formed.
