The original incarnation of the Band lasted only eight years, but during that time they released seven albums, toured relentlessly and wrote a stunning amount of incredible songs. Most bands that lasted five times that long can only dream of a legacy like the Band’s.
Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite song by the Band? Feel free to select a big hit like “The Weight” or “Up On Cripple Creek,” a fan favorite like “Chest Fever” of a super deep cut like “Street Walker.” Pick any song you want as long as it appears on an album by the Band. We’re not going to count Bob Dylan songs they play on like “Forever Young,” but Dylan-penned tunes like “I Shall Be Released” they recorded obviously will qualify.
