Default The B-List

If you asked someone who a B-List actor/ress was they could probably conjure at least one, but do you think there are B-List bands?

Some bands are decidedly A-list, some bands are extras in movements that get deservedly ignored, but do you think there are good bands that just never come up with the goods enough to get to the next teir of fame?

For this post, list one B-List band and then we'll debate their status and decide together if they were really just poor shlubs who couldn't put it together. (please don't list one-hit wonders or A-listers you just don't like)

My pick: Rainbow. Acclaimed guitarist and singer, and a couple of songs that were pretty solid but in the end, relegated to back burner status.

Decide, debate, and pick your own.

As far as the UK music scene i`d say Supergrass.

They consistantly knock out great albums year after year yet they never seem to end up getting that one big hit.

The Crandberries! They continue to release albums but I never see them make it bigger.

The Alan Parsons Project.After "Eye In The Sky" and "Damned If You Do", just vanished into obscurity.
