I don't much like Wilco, but they've won two Grammys and have been nominated for five. They've had several albums on the Billboard charts and they are constantly in the music press. If you haven't heard of Wilco, that's a reflection on you, not the band. They aren't ubiquitous, but they are a soldily mainstream band that many, many people know about.

I've never heard of anyone talk about that band, or even see any form of media mention of them...except on TD. Not hating, btw.

What if we've heard of Wilco and seen them live and still think they blow?

Then that would be your opinion and you would obviously be in disagreement with that pick... id leave it at that..

To the other guy, I would have said the OP said greatest, not most popular... but Baloo probably expressed it better...

Definitely gets more attention here than anywhere else I associate. Just not much of a fan personally.

That's pretty much my opinion of 'em. I like 'em as Billy Bragg's backing band doing Woody Guthrie covers and that's about it.

The "Great American Rock Band" can't be a band that hardly anyone knows about..

re: The Great American Rock Band
Great American Rock Band w/caveat of Modern Era.

There are really only two choices.

Black Crows or Government Mule.

WSP, Allmans, The Dead --- not current "Rock" bands.

wilco uncle tupelo was better. Wilco is alt-country or pop at best.
