Well, I guess it means that they didn't make it into people's top 5's then.

Looking at the list, I am shocked that Queen haven't been mentioned though. They can go on my list. Kick um, Led Zeppelin off and replace them with Queen (that's right). Don't tell any Brummies I said that.

The Band are Canadian and ABBA are from Sweden, so neither belong in this discussion.

Fleetwood Mac are a international band, half of their members are british, and half are american.

Yeah but they turned from a decent blues rock band to a horrible soft rock band when the Americans got involved.

I know I'm just saying... that in these versus threads + greatest <enter what here> threads... some of these bands have just been left off... and most of them don't deserve it... those were just off the top of my head, I tried thinking of both UK and US bands so as not to be one-sided, I just happen to know more US...

I will agree with you on this one. But it really depends on what you like, I guess. I don't think they were HORRIBLE though, but try and tell that to your fellow limey's who kept Rumours on the UK Chart listings for 450 WEEKS and helped it to become the 6th Best Selling Album of ALL TIME. Give credit where it's due, even if you don't like it. Nicks, Fleetwood, Buckingham, and McVie rocked the socks off of the world.

Holy ****, he IS! Oh come on, let us steal him.. you get Nelly Furtado, Celine Dion, Sum 41, Simple Plan, Rush, The Guess Who, The Tragically Hip, the Crash Test Dummies (snicker), Alanis Morisette, Avril Lavigne, and that bitch Anne Murray, too! See, you have some diamonds in the rough. We'll trade you Paul Simon for Neil Young.

I can do lots of things.

I can admit that U2 made 3 great songs
I can admit that I think Michael Jacksons first album was a work of genius
I can admit that I dance drunkenly to Ricky Martin songs in nightclubs with the local totty.
Hell I can even admit that a couple of Pearl Jam songs are listenable

But give Rumours one iota of credit?

Never EVER gonna happen
