  • Creedence Clearwater Revival is the best American rock band ever.

    Well perhaps not, but I would find it very difficult to argue against that given the number of fantastic songs they put out.

    All that stuff is evil: Ozzy, Judas Priest. There's backwards messages in that stuff that leads you to the Beast.

      I love those CCR songs. Just read a book about CCR. Too bad Fogerty is so bitter about his ex-bandmates. The stunt he pulled at the RnR Hall of Fame induction ceremonies was shameful.

        Fantastic- radio friendly- songs.

        As far as American rock band, I nominate The Ramones.

          CCR = gool old 3 chord rock and roll. No gimmicks or antics. This is the kind of stuff people will still dance to 50 years from now.

            I've never heard about this one. What did he do?
            Anyone seen Dano?

              John Fogerty doesn't know it - but he taught me how to play guitar. This guy was my hero for years.

              Anyone remember "Ramble Tamble"? Or "Long As I Can See The Light"? Or "Pagan Baby"?

              Too bad it seems that he's a bit of an a-hole.

                I can't think of any American bands I like more than CCR. I don't care how big an **************************** Fogerty is, the man is one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists I've ever heard.

                  Ramones would be my second choice.

                    Although CCR was inducted as a band, Fogerty refused to play with his former bandmates (I think his brother had already died by then, but couldn't swear to that), although they were led to believe that they would be onstage for the festivities. They came to soundcheck early that day and were told they were not allowed to play that night.



                    Instead Fogerty got up and played CCR songs with a bunch of other rock stars.

                        I wouldn't say the best, but pretty good for sure.

                          Great songs. I still play a few of them.

                          Brutally awful live band. Fogerty's solo shows now are FAR better. I'm not complaining that they played simple music and don't shred or something, I'm a fan of punk (and of CCR's albums). CCR played very simple music very badly indeed.

                          As said, a whole bunch of classic songs, but there were hundreds of American bands I'd rather watch onstage, which matters to me. Ashlee Simpson could probably sound OK in a studio given enough doctoring.

                            For me, Guns n Roses is really close (let's not turn this into a GnR v.s. CCR debate, Slash is my guitar hero). But i still think CCR takes the crown. Just too many excellent albums and excellent songs to ignore.
