Post your top 5 rock bands of all time

I'm interested in seeing what era most people's favorites come from and if there are more US bands or UK bands (or Scandinavian if you're Reaper16)

Clean sweep for the Brits for me.

1. The Beatles
2. Rolling Stones
3. Led Zep
4. Pink Floyd
5. The Who

Define band however you want. If you want to throw Elvis on your list, do it.

No particular order here, although... I tend to always claim VH as my all-time favorite and specifically, the Roth era. I enjoyed the Hagar era, but it honestly can't touch VH prior to 1984 in my opinion.

Aerosmith
Led Zeppelin
Van Halen
The Doors
Guns-N-Roses

I was torn on GnR... there's a handful there that could fit, but went with what bands are likely more heavily favored in my music rotation.

I just don't get it and find them highly overrated. I feel like it's the default answer as to greatest band ever and that title could never be challenged. Basically they get the Michael Jordan treatment.
Yes.

First off, Paul McCartney wrote the book on playing rock and roll bass guitar.

Second off...the sphere of the Beatle's influence cannot be overstated. Every single musician who plays any kind of music except classical, jazz, and opera has been influenced, either directly or indirectly, by the Beatles.

Take, for instance, any and every metal band from Metallica to Cradle Of Filth. Well, 'heavy metal' was basically inverted by Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, yes?? Well...both Ozzy Osbourne and Ian Paice were absolute Beatles nuts. Ozzy had Beatles pictures all over the wall and dreamed of his sister marrying a Beatle. It's why he got into a band. It's why EVERYONE got into a band back then.

Like, seriously - the American gov't stamped out rock n' roll by the early 60's; Elvis was in the Army, Little Richard was preaching, Chuck Berry was in jail, Eddie Cochran died in the same crash that paralyzed Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee was in purgatory for marrying his 13year old cousin, Buddy Holly and Richie Valens were dead, et al.

There was NO rock and roll - the music had died, and then the 3 French Corsicans were hired to off President Kennedy in Nov '63.

The Beatles touched ground in Feb '64 - and the world hasn't been the same since.

They influenced Bob Dylan to go electric; he influenced them by turning them on to grass and expanding their lyrical parameters.

The sounds they attained in the recording studio (by using equipment that was obsolete even by 1960's standards - a 4-track recorder) are still nothing short of astounding, and people still try to recreate the amazing sounds they did with Producer George Martin TODAY with digital equipment...sometimes they get real close.

They literally changed the world, changed the way music was recorded, changed the was it was presented, changed the actual SOUND of it. They ****ing changed it all.

THAT'S why they're held in such high regard. Because they EARNED it. They did it ALL and they did it all FIRST.

So you may not like the Beatles or you may not 'get' it, but the artists you listen to love them, and were extremely influenced by them. So, no matter what you listen to, you owe a debt of gratitude to the Beatles.

What are we doing here: Our personal favorites? Or are we taking a historical perspective?

Because those are two totally different things.

My five favorite bands are:

1a. Yes
1b. Genesis
2. The Who
3. King Crimson
4. Pink Floyd
5. Porcupine Tree

(Yes, I cheated)

word. couldn't imagine if I was just a little older then how many of those bands I'd have seen live in their prime or while Brad Nowell was still alive. Would've made for great memories. I've seen KoRn, NIN, Sublime with Rome, Tool. All past their prime, but Tool I seen them when they released Lateralus. Ahhh good times.

What'd you think of the new album, Different Kind of Truth??

I liked it a lot, and thought the show from the Sprint Center was awesome.

Here's a recording I made if you want :

He said he didn't 'get it', so I offered a context in which he could maybe 'get it' from.

Yeah no doubt they were the first and changed history. No argument there. I just hate their sound.

I know it's a me thing. I've come to accept that.
