Gibson's countdown of the Top 50 American Rock Bands of All Time is getting down to the nitty gritty with today's picks for No 21 to No 30. Here are a couple highlights:

30. ZZ Top: Known affectionately for years now as that "Little ol' Band from Texas," Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard and Dusty Hill have proved themselves one of the greatest American bands of all time. From their bar-room blues beginnings to arenas, stadiums and conquering the MTV world with slick and witty videos, ZZ Top have never stopped rocking. They're America's answer to The Rolling Stones, but with better beards. – Andrew Vaughan

26. KISS: "You wanted the best, you got the best! The hottest band in the world… KISS!" And for a while there, they actually were the hottest band in the world – if not through record sales but sheer touring spectacle. KISS' remarkable, bombastic – outrageous – live shows forever upped the ante, and to this day, they have yet to meet their equal. America's Fab Four – Paul, Gene, Ace and Peter – created a new paradigm for live concert theatrics, and they changed the game forever. – Sean Patrick Dooley See today's full list here
