AC/DC

AC/DC is a hard rock band formed in Sydney, Australia in November, 1973 by rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young and his brother, lead guitarist Angus Young. The band has sold over 150 million albums worldwide, making them one of the most successful hard rock acts ever. Their 1980 album Back in Black has sold 42 million copies worldwide (21 million in the US alone) and is the second highest selling album of all time. The band has had two distinctive lead singers, and its fans tend to divide its history into the "Bon Scott era" (1974-80), and the "Brian Johnson era" (1980-present). Hit songs include "Back in Black", "Highway to Hell", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" and "You Shook Me All Night Long".

Steve Miller Band

In 1968, Steve Miller formed the Steve Miller Band, with Boz Scaggs handling vocals, and released an album, Children of the Future, the first in a series of discs rooted solidly in the psychedelic blues style that dominated the San Francisco music scene at the time. 1973's The Joker marked the start of the second phase of Miller's career: more pop-oriented and simplistic. Miller followed up The Joker with Fly Like an Eagle in 1976 and Book of Dreams in 1977. This pair of albums represented the peak of Miller's commercial career, both reaching the top echelons of the album charts and spawning a seemingly-endless series of hit singles, including "Rockin' Me", "Take the Money and Run", "Jet Airliner", and "Jungle Love".

AC/DC...not even close. I like the SMB but AC/DC is one of my all-time favs. I would've voted for the SMB over A LOT of the bands that actually made the cut, but AC/DC isn't 1 of them.

I couldn't begin to count the # of times I have listened to the Miller Greatest Hits album. Always have loved it. That said, no way I can vote them over AC/DC who got seeded way low at 20 imho.

I'm sort of on the same page here. I'm pretty sure no matter where you are there's some cheesey local classic rock station playing some AC/DC. And yes I realize SMB gets played by those same stations, but they don't annoy me, and SMB did "Living in the USA" which is one of the greatest songs ever.
