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.

Understandable.

But to me, 'the Beatles' went through 5 extremely different phases, and as a result can almost sound like 5 different bands :

1. early days - fast swinging 'beat' rock and roll w/huge soul/Motown influence on ballads...lots of 'boy-meets-girl' lyrics. (1962-64)

2. middle period - marked by more lyrical and instrumental experimentation; transitional period, but progressive (1965)

3. Psychedelia - complete sonic and aesthetic overhaul; music was in black and white before; the Beatles made it in technicolor with Revolver and Sgt. Pepper. Orchestral, hall, jazzy flairs, eastern influence - a complete and total synthesis of every existing type of music on earth.

4. The soloists - (1968) - for the White Album, they worked on each song almost as a 'solo performer' with a backing band. Stripped of psychedelic trappings, earnest and raw, again reaching heights no one before had attained. Hey Jude and Revolution date from this period, as do Lady Madonna and Old Brown Shoe. The first (and superior) Across the Universe dates from this period.

5. The End - where they finally coalessed into a complete whole one last time to make the grand definitive statement in Abbey Road. They had never sounded better, before or since, either together or apart.

So, to me...'their sound' is a bit of a misnomer; they were very broad.

Here's a recording I made if you want :

I really liked it... wish they had released something other than Tatoo as their first song. Stay Frosty grew on me.

Outta Space, Blood and Fire - those are my two favorites from the album.

Exactly.

You could throw 'Bon Jovi' on there as well, but I refuse to consider them an actual band at this point...they're just an aberration that I will not acknowledge.

Like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man...if you don't think about it, it doesn't exist.

5. Queen


I mean, males over the age of 40 get a pass on listening to such schlocky drivel, but goddamn, I have to change the channel. Those 5 bands are the reason why I can't listen to the 'classic rock radio' format. It's such whiny girlie CRAP. Just my opinion...but the music from all 5 of those bands is, like, salt-peter limp.
Yeah dude, I agree... Great Call....

Tattoo grew on me - Blood & Fire is AWESOME. I dug Bullethead, Beats Working...She's the Woman.

It's just too long; drop a couple of the 'filler' somgs and you'd have the classic 39-42 min DLR-fronted VH album.

Which is good enough for me.

Except every band you listed is actually great.

see, if you just don't listen to classic rock radio and listen to the ALBUMS by Sabbath, Zep, Floyd, the Who, Skynyrd, et al, you get past the BS songs that the radio format shoves down a person's throat, and you get the whole picture and can truly appreciate their greatness.

On the flip side, as a kid I was exposed to repeated spins of Journey Escape and Captured and Departure, REO's Can't Tune A Piano,Cheap Trick's Dream Police & Budokan, foreinger's 4 (**** Mutt Lange, btw), Styx Kilroy and Grand Illusion, etc.

I've heard ALL that shit. Styx SUCKS. Dennis DeYoung is ****ing ANNOYING. His voice is nails on a chalkboard, personafied. Plus, all the Foreigners, REOs, Journeys, Bostons, etc sonically SOUND the same - cut from the same 70s AOR cookie-cutter cloth. Not only can you really not tell the difference from album to album, even band to band.

Conversely, Pink Floyd's Animals sounds NOTHING like Meddle. At all. Led Zeppelin III and Presence sound like different ****ing BANDS. The Who Sell Out and Who's Next both sound radically different from Who Are You or It's Hard. Sabbath's Never Say Die is a far cry from their first record...and the raw, rocking Queen II is a far cry from the productions of Jazz or News Of the World.

Turn the radio to a station other than 101.1 The Fox.
