Adam Brutto says:

ya lol cant believe ccr isnt up there.. but franciswei did say its their
first list…

insurancemanharold says:

@gmcbigrig79 I agree, he has some good songs in the list but WHERE IS MOLLY
HATCHET? WHERE IS .38 SPECIAL? Most of the true Southern Rock genre bands
were from Jacksonville, Tampa or Orlando Florida!!! I grew up idolizing
these guys as Danny Joe Brown (Hatchet’s lead singer) was my cousin.

ricecrispiesman32 says:

ilive in texas half of this is pretty good but its kinda country just a tad
bit but i love the songs still

Gail Arthur says:

are great southern rock bands what happend to the good old days and they
are a two new vary good southern rock bands fifth on the foor and the
sheepdogs and zac bown band

bisp25 says:

@bisp25 no it’s from ronnie van zant. ronnie always said ARS was the best
southern band ever, and ronnie hammond was the best voice in southern rock.

epicjizz69 says:

where is have you ever seen the rain by creedence???????

Luis Henrique Avila says:

of course there are only great songs on this video, but… the greatest
classic of Southern Rock is “FREE BIRD” (Lynyrd Skynyrd

lllfxguy says:

words too long for you? ask your mother what “guzzling” is, I’m sure she’d
love to show you.

elamite66 says:

@jczother being from NY I can tell you that as for myself I can pick out
Southern music Rock or Country in a NY second I like a lot of different
kinds of music myself but maybe you do too I don’t know I guess maybe the
Civil War is not over but on the other hand I’ve had people get resentful
hearing my accent and it don’t have to be from the South either upstate NY,
California, the West even Boston what’s so special about NY that you get
insults and resentment just from being from there?

andy cole says:

bob seger is from detroit.

Lucas Wirti says:

yeaahhh… where is Free Bird??

franciswei says:

@gmcbigrig79 I appreciate it dude !

Nirvana4554 says:

If you’re referring to bands literally from the South well that’s another
thing (I don’t know if they are or not). Some of these bands aren’t the
southern rock sound. Look up Drive by Truckers, Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, and
Drivin’ n’ Cryin’. Great, great bands.

IncorpMusic says:

please help, i cant find the song ”South of heaven” does some1 know where
can i find it?

nazzare79 says:

mountain is a souther rock band? and Creedence? I don’t think so…anyway
the marshall tucker band is my favourite…’this ol cowboy’ is fantastic…

ReverendRawk says:

All great bands and songs! Check out PREACHER STONE out of NC!!! They wear
their southern influences proudly!!!

elamite66 says:

@jczother I don’t know if he’s from NY or not but it’s his first try give
the kid a break and by the way you don’t have to be from the South to know
or appreciate Southern Rock Also people like me from NY aren’t as
uneducated and backward as we used to be in fact we think we just as good
as anybody else despite the fact that you all look down us like I said we
ain’t as backward as we used to be PEACE

editing error?
