Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.

I know they were from the 60's, but they did some releases in the early 70's....

I picked Queen though...

Would this qualify as a Vs. Thread??

I don't think this belongs in the Pit...

I voteds other because Zeppelin formed in the '60s, and because Boston threw off the curve for everyone.
#15
My favorite 70s band is YES. Steve Howe and Chris Squire are amazing.

Pink Floyd, but on the list I would choose Rush, even though they were better in the 80's.
#20
Except for Van Halen and the Ramones, I like them all.


But I chose Zeppelin.

Zeppelin, Heart, Mountain, Rush, Aerosmith... too many to narrow it down.

...No, dude. The worldwide version of High Voltage was released in '75.

I think the thread is breaking the rules, I do believe that any form of Vs. thread is against the rules...

Frank Mother****ing Zappa.

Also, Van Halen was really more of an 80s band. That's when the majority of their albums and hits came around.

As far as I'm concerned there's no contest, Pink Floyd put out their some of their best and definately most popular albums in the 70's...Meddle, Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. No contest. But like I said I decided to choose from the list and go with Rush who are just a notch below Floyd in greatness. But seriously no contest, how could you not even put Floyd up? Van Halen is more 80's than 70's but whatever. And to the guy who said ACDC didn't come around until the 80's, you are wrong. Back In Black, which was after Bon Scotts death and basically dedicated to him, with their second singer Brian Johnson, came out in 1980 I believe. And we all know Bon Scott and songs like Dirty Deeds and TNT and the Balls song.
