Top 20 American Bands

USA Today's readers pick the Top 20 American rock bands.

Taken with a grain of salt because it is USA Today.

1. Pearl Jam
2. Aerosmith
3. Van Halen
4. The Eagles
5. Journey
6. Guns N' Roses
7. The Grateful Dead
8. Queensryche
9. The Doors
10. R.E.M.
11. The Allman Brothers/Fleetwood Mac (tie)
12. Metallica
13. KISS
14. The Ramones
15. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band/Creedence Clearwater Revival (tie)
16. Dave Matthews Band/Lynyrd Skynard (tie)
17. The Beach Boys
18. Nirvana
19. The Replacements
20. Bon Jovi

Nirvana is 18th and Pearl Jam is 1st. Huh? Queensryche is 8th? I don't know the name of even one of their songs. And that Dave Matthews and Bon Jovi are even on the list at all is just plain goofy. Where's Heart? (On the writer's list but still.) And where are The B-52s? (A personal favorite.)

**Edit** And no Red Hot Chili Peppers?!? What's up with that?
