According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.

I voted for The Beach Boys, Eagles, CCR, Pearl Jam and the Ramones.


I thought the Beach Boys would have had a lot more votes.  Aren't The Beach Boys massive in the States?

Depends on the demographic - if voting was restricted to those over 60 and under 10, they might stand a chance. Smiley

Myself - I voted for the Beach Boys, Big Star, CCR, Tom Perry & The Heartbreakers, and threw in Van Halen at the last minute for no particular reason. Smiley

Voted for The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, The Velvet Underground and CCR.... would hate to see The Eagles win. Also disappointing to see how poorly The Byrds are doing. Fantastic stuff

I don't think Ultimate Rock's voters constitute a correct demographic picture. This magazine is more about and for those who listen to rock, which is why bands like Aerosmith and Van Halen coming up higher than they probably would in a poll for more people.

More young people today would yawn at those groups. The Beach Boys have an enduring quality that has overcome the general decline of rock as a popular genre. Far fewer young people today listen to "classic rock", but I still hear a lot of Beach Boys tunes on the radio and at parties/events, and I'm 26.

Done.

I voted for TP & the Heartbreakers, CCR, The Doors, Talking Heads and our Boys.

Talking Heads deserve love!

Voted twice for

The Beach Boys
CCR
The Doors
Van Halen
Aerosmith (had Blue Oyster Cult not been carelessly omitted, they'd have taken my 5th vote)

Any opinions posted by me regarding the music of The Beach Boys, and their members, is in no way a show of disrespect towards any member of The Beach Boys, past or present.
