Re: The Byrds versus Steppenwolf!

I won't even try with this one. It's a tie for me. I'd only hurt my brain trying to choose one over the other.

And why isn't Steppenwolf in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame???

Re: The Byrds versus Steppenwolf!

Byrds....their influence and body of work far outweighs Steppenwolf..though the first 2 Steppenwolf are pretty good.

Exclamation Re: The Byrds versus Steppenwolf!

I like both these bands. Each has released several tracks I really like. Ranking my favourites by these two bands though yields this list:

1. Turn! Turn! Turn! - Byrds
2. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
3. Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
4. My Back Pages - Byrds
5. Sookie Sookie - Steppenwolf
6. Mr. Tambourine Man - Byrds
7. Monster - Steppenwolf
8. It's Never Too Late - Steppenwolf
9. For Ladies Only - Steppenwolf

Steppenwolf therefore gets my vote in this one.

Re: The Byrds versus Steppenwolf!

If you are a Star Trek (TNG) fan you must know the movie ‘First Contact’ (1996). In the movie during the Phoenix launch seen, Zefram Cochrane plays the Steppenwolf song ‘Magic Carpet Ride’. The issue was that it was a version than no one knew where it came from. Many tried but could not find it. Low and behold an intrepid Youtube fan found the version (listed below).
