Quoted from system11:
I'm saying that their music isn't nearly as well identified by the wider crowd as Elvis and the Stones
The thing about that though...Elvis and the Stones tend to be backround music. You know it, but it generally doesn't do anything to you when it comes on. I own Stones stuff and I like it better than AC/DC, of which I own none. But I have to admit that when AC/DC does come on there is an emotional response, I guess I would almost call it anthem music. And I would guess that I am in the majority on that.
