The 7 greatest "The" bands in Rock

A few nights back on "The List"  I played 7 of the all time best "The" bands.  You know, groups with the word the in the band name.  Do you get the idea?  So, in case you missed it, here is "The List" of the 7 greatest "The" bands.

The Byrds-Pioneers in folk and country rock.  With Roger McGuinn's mastery of the 12 string and those rich harmonies, the Byrds set the stage for for a folk rock explosion.  And nobody covered a Bob Dylan song better!

The Clash-The Clash took the raw anger of British punk and worked it into a political and aesthetic agenda. Outstripping all of their peers in terms of length and depth of career, the Clash were rebels with a cause...(an excerpt from Rolling Stone Magazine) 

The Doors-Jim Morrison's flailing rage against seemingly everything fueled one of the truly unforgettable bands of our lifetime.

The Eagles-They took what The Byrds started and morphed into the "musical score" for all of us who came of age in the 70's. 

and finally the big three "The" bands...

The Rolling Stones

The Who

The Beatles

So, that's it, that's "The List" of rocks greatest "The" bands.   Not included, The Police, The Grateful Dead, The Band and a few others.  How would you modify this list?  Drop me a note and tune in for the next  installment of "The List"...every weeknight at 7 on The Mountain.
