Of those mentioned, Steely Dan is my favorite, although it's hard to call them a "band"

This is factual. It's interesting how British artists tried to jump on the bandwagon
I don't really see it as "jumping on the bandwagon" personally. I heard
Eric Clapton doing an interview very early in his Post Cream career (I think it was
Derek and the Dominos era), and he was asked about his Blues connections
with John Mayhall, and Cream. Clapton said that all the young kids who were
in Club bands in the 50s were listening to, and playing music by American
Blues artists like Muddy Waters, Sunhouse, Robert Johnson etc... and they
thought the American kids were doing the same over here. It wasn't until
The Beatles cracked the door open for the wave of British bands to get noticed
in the US, that they realized the majority of American Teens were unaware of
the music that made them Supergroups of the 60s and 70s. Clapton went on to
say that most of the British bands that got recording contracts and toured
in the US had no idea they were going to be as popular as they were when they
started out. He said it wasn't until after they were in the U.S. for a while that
they learned just how deep our prejudices ran in regards to Black people prior
to the mid 60s. I see it (as Clapton said), as them just paying tribute to some
great artists of the Blues era)

I remember when bands like They Yardbirds, Cream, Led Zeppelin, The Stones
etc... first came to the U.S, and how kids in school just went Ape shit over
them, thinking it was "Cutting Edge" stuff. We didn't realize they were
emulating their American Idols of Blues, and we had no idea of it.

We thought when Led Zeppelin was doing Traveling Riverside Blues, Sugar
Mama, When the Levee Breaks, Hangman etc.. OR
when The Stones were going Love in Vain, or Little Red Rooster, or Cream
doing Crossroads, that it was a whole new type of music we'd been introduced
to.......then found out a short time later it had been in our own backyard
since the 30s and 40s and we didn't appreciate it because of our Blind prejudices

I don't know what you're looking for exactly. What are they the "best" at? I could interpret this as which one do we think sounds the best, which one had the most purpose and originality for their time, or even which one was the most revolutionary in shaping American society. "Best American rock band" is a generic question that's been asked its fair share of times across an abundance of message boards.

Steely Dan is a good one as well. I hate these greatest of list because there are just too many great bands to list just one.

Well here it is on this message board so thanks for caring enough to respond

Nothing like a generic answer to a perceived generic question

By the way, NIN blows, unless you're a 17-year old suspended from school sitting at home in mom's basement playing wow and shaving your eyebrows

The Allman Brothers Band- words can't describe why. it is something you feel. Duane allman slide guitar and Gregg's voice then throw the rest of the band is gravy
Creedence Clearwater Revival- Fogerty was a great lyricist and the band was fantastic
Nirvana- they made grunge alternative mainstream pop for 5 year or so period
REM- redefined what alternative rock was
Aerosmith- not my favorite but how long they were on top is hard to argue with
The Eagles- Their harmonies are works of magic. Radio has ruined what people think of them. Listen to the entire catalog
Lynyrd Skynyrd- like the Eagles radio has pigeonholed their reputation. Listen to the entire catalog
Sonic Youth- arguably the most artistic band ever. their influence is immense
The Pixies -like sonic youth their influence is still felt
The Red Hot Chili Peppers -keeping the funk alive
