    Ok guys, I am a future southerner who wants to like more the things about the south. I am wondering if you have any suggestions for Southern Rock music. I like Southern Country and wanted to give Rock as shot. I like ZZ Top as I think they're southern.

    Please give me some suggestions.

    Thanks :D

    Well, there are a lot of classic southern rock bands but if your looking for something more contemporary, I'd say that you could probably start with Kid Rock. I would say he's Southern Rock.

    ZZ Top isn't from the South they are from Texas :laugh2:

    Southern Rock begins and ends with Lynyrd Skynyrd

    It begins with the Allman Brothers pretty much. Skynyrd is the prototypical Southern Rock band from the '70's though.

    Skynard is the gold standard for Southern Rock. The all time greatest southern Rock anthem was Sweet Home Alabama.

    But there were/are other great bands. As mentioned .38 Special and the Allman Brothers.

    Check out Dickey Betts for a great guitarist.

    Canned Heat and Credence Clearwater Revival were also fantastic.

    The Early Charlie Daniels Band was also great. Long Haired Country Boy was one of my favorite songs.

    Skynard, Allman Bros, Molly Hatchet, Marshall Tucker Band, Blackfoot, The Outlaws and .38 Special should round out the standards.

    I'd throw in some early Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Not your typical "Southern Rock" band, but from the FLA area.

    If that is the case...Southern rock sucks.

    Thankfully it is not the case.

    Allman Brothers band
    Some Charlie Daniels band...always thought they were more SoFr than country.
    38 special
    Blackfoot
    Black Oak Arkansas


    Uggh...LS is so over played and just not as good as so many think they are.

    Allman brothers band is much better...heck Duane by himself was ten times better IMO.

    If I leave here tomorrow...I will say thank you. :laugh2: Man that song grates on my ever loving nerves.

    Give Me Whipping Post, Statesboro Blues By the allman brothers
    Train Train by blackfoot
    Jim Dandy BOA
    Ghost Riders in the sky by the Outlaws
    Hold on Loosely and Caught up in you by 38 Special
    Legend of Wooley Swamp, Still in Saigon and In America - Charlie Daniels band
    Can't you See - Marshall Tucker band (some don't know but Charlie Daniels played fiddle early in the marshal tucker band)
