I call those girl bands guilty pleasures. :)  I had the first Bangles LP 
long before they became MTV darlings.  Some American bands I love Allman 
Bros, Aerosmith (70s only!), Byrds, Beach Boys (to about 1970), CSN 
sometimes Y, Jimi, ZZ Top (up to about '83), Ramones, Romantics, CCR, most 
everything Stax Volt, Motown, Stooges, MC5, SRV, Little Feat, Black Crowes, 
Van Halen (Roth era), Dylan, Steppenwolf, Gov't Mule (Woody era), Santana, 
Drive By Truckers, North MS Allstars, Rose Hill Drive, on and on.


PS  - Mike, Fleetwood Mac is an English band. :)
