Best Swamp Rock Bands/Artists of All Time

Closely associated with the music of Louisiana (and with good reason), swamp rock combines New Orleans-driven R&B with the traditional Creole and French Louisiana sounds. Though it never quite caught on with the mainstream - at least as a whole - swamp rock maintains a large following in Louisiana. The genre as known was created in the 1950s and early 1960s and many of the best swamp rock bands and artists aren't from Louisiana. Swamp rock, though, with its cult following across the globe, still remains an exciting subgenre of rock.

So, what are the best swamp rock bands? For starters, you'd have to include outsiders like Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty, Doobie Brothers, Bobby Charles and Tony Joe White as some of the best swamp rock artists. Their hits still resonate and thus, swamp rock lives on. Though it's popularity has waned over the years, swamp rock bands still can rock as hard as any of their contemporaries and thus, the spirit of the jungle lives on.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best swamp rock bands. If you notice a swamp rock band isn't on this list, and should be, feel free to add them.  This list answers the questions "who are the best swamp rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest swamp rock musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular swamp rock bands that you might've heard of. (20 items)
