ZZ Top would probably get the sympathy vote this week

They would however be fairly high up the list on any random week

/kind of leaning towards Aerosmith for my vote at the moment

*oops, my bad on the Stones... they stole it from America, still...

The Band was actually an American band since they were all based in NY while they were recording. Might be the ,most iconic American band ever really.

Many to choose from, but ultimately, tough to beat this band in many of its incarnations and maybe especially this one:

I'd vote for The Band or the Hendrix Experience but they were heavily infiltrated by foreigners and the Allman Brothers have already been nominated so I'm going with Jerry's kids.
