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.

Fair enough. I guess I always thought of Prog rock has a misuse of talent. Not wasted, just misused.

I could pretty much 'shuffle' my ipod with only Led Zep, VH, and ACDC and be good to go for quite a while.

I hate those low-bitrate mo3 streams.

Satellite radio is the devil.

I hate around 3000 vinyl records, around 40,000 CDs and abot 5TBs of everything you can name : classical, jazz, rock, pop, punk, soul, blues, etc. Everything in analog or FLAC format. Mp3s are for little girls to listen to dance music on their ipods.

Shit-tons of live recordings and studio outtakes, etc. Bootlegs are my shit. I've taken it to such an extreme that anything commercially available is considered pedestrian. I laugh at Satellite radio, because it sounds like dogshit.

But I put them in my honorable mention because of their technical ability (Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Bill Bruford, Alan White and Rick Wakeman are/were gifted musicians), their long-term success and their influence.

For good or bad, their virtuoso musicianship combined with vocal harmonies influenced many 70s and 80s bands (Boston, Styx, Kansas, Foreigner, etc.)

when it's good, it's great.

When it's bad, it's unbearable.

And to be fair, everything that was bad. Very Spinal Tap-ish in some instances.

Try 1974 -- Tales From Topographic Oceans, especially the stage setup for the tour.

I love that shit. But I absolutely get why people hated it, and rebelled against it.

Sure, there are black rock bands, though I doubt anyone would put them top 5, because none of them happen to be as good as a lot of others.

TV on the Radio comes to mind.

You COULD argue for Otis Redding.

My top five, to allow for ridicule:

1. Led Zeppelin
2. Rolling Stones
3. Pearl Jam
4. Alice in Chains
5. Radiohead


You forget The Experience.

I've been trying to get into newer music, mostly because if I never hear "Hotel California" again for as long as I live, it won't be soon enough.

I've discovered a band called Alt-J (the Mac shortcut for typing the Greek letter Delta).

Just one album so far, and most of the songs aren't like this, but the tool crowd might enjoy hearing the (light) influence:
