  • You bet, Riverboat. I'm always amazed at the arrangements and the complexity of the Moody Blues. The wrote some beautiful pieces. And a heads up, they will likely appear once more on one of my lists.

  • Thanks BSpotter. Man, I love Iggy and the Stooges. There are so many great bands that I had to leave out that it hurts. When I started this list, I had no idea just how hard it would be. You can often forget how many great acts and songs there are out there until you start pulling together a list like this.

  • Nick, great article. It's hard to have a conversation about the heaviness of the early 1970s without mentioning (Iggy Pop &) The Stooges, who're considered by some as the Godfathers of Punk.

    A few tracks from my favorite Stooges album, Raw Power:
