Good Rock Bands

List Criteria: Bands that still play live

List of good, straightahead rock bands, as ranked by you, the public. No hip-hop, metal, hardcore, uber-indie, electronica, dance, pop, singer songwriter etc music - just rock BANDS please (some of us just like to rock!). One other bit of criteria - please only include bands that still play live. I want to use this list as a resource for good rock, let's all add good bands so we can all learn about new music, since you sure can't hear it on the radio anymore, except for the same old classic rock bands. Keep em good - no bands that can't play live!

What are some of the good rock bands? That's up to you to decide, but there are plenty of solid options to choose from: some of these are good young rock bands, some alternative, but all great. All of the iconic and legendary rock bands are on this list and if they aren't, feel free to add them!
