    Greenday is definetly in my top ten for a few reasons.

    One, their song writer, Billy Joe Armstrong, has an uncanny ability to write songs that go to the heart of todays more volatile issues.

    Two, other than Niel Peart from Rush, Tre Cool the drummer for Greenday is one of the best I've ever heard.

    I enjoy the Eagles very much. I like their music, melodies, etc.

    The Guess Who. They were huge and have accomplished a lot over the years. Some of their songs (like American Woman and to a lesser extent, These Eyes) are still well known to this day.

    No, no, no, no! The title of the thread is "Classic Rock" as in 'good' and 'classic' and 'rock,' none of which is matching trait of Green Day. They are NOT classic, let alone rock. They're punk/pop and new compared to bands like the Eagles, AC/DC, Aerosmith, or any of the other usual classic rock bands.

    Whew, well now that that's been said . . . I'd have to go with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers or AC/DC as my favorite of the classical rock genre. They're tunes are just catchy and energetic.

    F'in-A! There are some rockers here! I'm surprised though that no one mentioned Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Sabbath, Foghat, Rush, or Triumph.
