Pixies and X Make Top 50 American Rock Bands of All Time List

Gibson continues their countdown of the Top 50 American Rock Bands of All Time. Today they disclose their picks for No 31-40. Here are a couple highlights:

34. Pixies: If all the Pixies had done was make great music that was well-received by audiences, they'd already deserve a place on this list. Songs like "Here Comes Your Man," "Monkey Gone to Heaven," "Where is My Mind?," "Cactus" and "Debaser" will forever hold a place in the rock Pantheon. But they deserve further kudos for influencing the quiet verse/loud chorus dynamic of later bands such as Nirvana, who were unashamed of their direct referencing of Pixies song structures. Peter Hodgson

33. X: X formed in 1977 during the first wave of punk, and later diversified their sound in more rock-based directions. The band is known for their powerful live shows, and was officially recognized by the City of Los Angeles for their contributions to L.A. music and culture. Despite a number of break-ups and reunions, the band is still going strong, although talk of songwriting sessions by vocalist Exene Cervenka and vocalist/bassist John Doe in 2008 has not yet translated into a new album.
