How has this thread made it to six pages with no mention of Sha Na Na? Come on, I mean...Bowzer!
If we include Paul Revere and the Raiders, we have to include The Kingsmen. Their version of Louie Louie is still being played all over the world.
Bit of trivia: Springsteen opened for them in 1972.
I don’t fully understand the rules.
lol, cant believe you said sha na na. thats who i was thinking of reading thru the post never forget bowzer! in the begining there was nothing but rock, then someone invented the wheel, and things began to roll.
I agree 100%. I saw them live and the word "tight" is an understatement.
I never said anything about him that you seem to assume. I just said that he really was more of a country singer. That's all. Not sure where the rest came from. BTW I was born in 1969.
When you said "Elvis shouldn't be considered anyhow. Elvis was a hyped up country singer" I took that as an insult. He was much more than that to millions of people and I assumed you missed that whole thing because of your age. After all he scored his last number one record the year you were born.... But no worries man I don't get mad about those things just responding.
well of course The Easybeats
He shouldn't be considered because of the rules the OP set in the very first post. When I listen to early Elvis, he sang country music. I'm not belittling that at all. I completely understand his influence. My folks played Elvis all of the time when they weren't playing Rodger Whittaker. I like Elvis, he just doesn't fit the rules which is a shame. No worries here either.
Guess I should vote as I remember those years. The Beatles. Many other greats but mostly frontmen (i.e. Chuck Berry, Gerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, etc.).
Not my favorite personally, but.....The Rolling Stones
Well, I thought of mentioning them, back around the second page. But I already answered the Beatles, and had made several posts relating to the movie "That Thing You Do", so I waited for someone else to bring them up. Way cool group though!
It occurred to me that sha na na were contenders too.

Cap'n Geech And The Shrimp Shack Shooters
No, it's Capn' Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters.
Damn, you beat my by 10 minutes!!
BEATLES.........hands down best Band of all time. Not sure if this qualifies within the guidelines but best Rock and Roll Band, Led Zepplin...followed closely by the Rolling Stones and AC/DC
It's a stretch, but there certainly is some '50s influence. Mostly blues, but also R'n'R. The most obvious example being..."Rock and Roll," with the almost beat-for-beat imitation of the drum into from Little Richard's "Keep A-Knockin'."
I'm going with Louis Jordan and his Tympani Five. He may even be patient zero.
