Lynyrd Skynyrd

Lynyrd Skynyrd was the definitive Southern rock band, making a name for themselves by fusing the overdriven power of blues-rock with a rebellious, Southern image and a hard rock swagger. Their distinctive triple-lead guitar sound made their songs "Freebird", and "Sweet Home Alabama" American anthems and staples of FM radio. A chartered airplane carrying the band crashed near a forest in McComb, Mississippi. The plane literally ran out of gas. The crash killed singer/songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist/vocalist Steve Gaines, vocalist Cassie Gaines, and other band members were injured, some very seriously. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.

Journey

Journey is an Arena rock band formed in 1973. The band's greatest commercial success came in the early 1980s with a series of power ballads and soaring classics such as "Don't Stop Believin'", "Any Way You Want It," "Open Arms", "Separate Ways", "Wheel in the Sky" and "Faithfully". Journey have released over 15 studio albums with moderate success, but while the band may not be as commercially successful as others, every one of us knows their work. Many credit the group's success to Steve Perry's powerful vocals and Neal Schon's complex guitar work.

Journey is fine to listen to when you are in the car with your mom and you don't want her to be annoyed by the music you really like. :-b

I'll fess up - I voted for Journey.

I like Lynard Skynard a lot but other than "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Freebird" not much else made the radio waves. Journey, an arena rock band - yes, but they were cranking out the radio hits.

And who didn't sing "Open Arms" to their Junior High or High School girfriend back in the day? HUH?

Tuesday's Gone, Mr. Saturday Night Special, Gimme Back My Bullets (to mention a few of the many more lesser classics by Skynard)?
Probably one of the more influental bands in this competition (minus the Beatles and The Beach Boys).
But, Journey...
Puh-lease...
A gimme here. :-?
