Well I think you need to realize that it's completely subjective whether an individual considers a particular band to be 'great'. While you may consider Aerosmith to be crap there are millions of other people who would disagree.
Subjectivity aside, Aerosmith have sold many millions of albums and have clearly influenced many other musicians. That alone is objective evidence they did something right.
While I agree with you that Pink Floyd and King Crimsom did some fantastic work and generally wrote lyrics that were more sophisticated than, say, Van Halen, they are both British bands and you did specify American in your post. Otherwise I would have mentioned The Jimi Hendrix Experience who I think are one of the best bands ever (Jimi being American but Noel and Mitch British).
However you did seem to miss the fact I said there were far too many great American bands to list. I simply named a couple of those who I really consider great.
