The bands gaining ground include the E Street Band, Doors, Replacements, Ramones, and Beach Boys. New entries incude The Eagles, REM, and Sonic Youth.
My put-down in the original post has rallied the Dead supporters — they are trying to move the Jerrys past the Brothers. Which reminds me of a most excellent rock and roll joke:

Here’s the latest ranking.
E Street Band
Guns N’ Roses
Tom Petty and Heartbreakers
Crazy Horse (Neil Young)
