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.

Just a personal thing. I still think he was a great singer.
Shame on him for setting the bar so ridiculously HIGH.

Go figure.
Then Dio put out Rainbow in the Dark and We Rock...

Early Whitesnake is very bluesy. The original version of "Here I Go Again" is borderline Gospel music. The last two records have been very cool, mainly due to Doug Aldrich.

Listen to "Sailaway" on the Deep Purple album, Burn, and you'll hear Chris Cornell's biggest influence.
I probably would have been a Coverdale fan had I discovered Deep Purple BEFORE Whitesnake. Or even if I had been exposed to earlier Whitesnake more heavily.

As it is, my first taste of Whitesnake was "Still of the Night" and all that Led Zeppelin rip-off shit.

EDIT: I should note that I WAS exposed to Deep Purple before Whitesnake but not the Coverdale version. My Dad used to listen to "Machine Head" all the time. "Highway Star" is still one of my favorite songs of all time.

Burn may just be my favorite DP studio record, start to finish.

I'm the biggest Dio fan but to me, his stuff with Black Sabbath is untouchable. It's on a level far above even "Holy Diver".

Go on Spotify and check out early Whitesnake or the latest records (I like Good to Be Bad better than Forevermore but both are very good).

Whitesnake of the 70's and 2000's is completely different than the John Kalodner money grab album of 1987.

Well, he's wrong.

And Killing The Dragon, IMO, is Dio's best solo album. Great songs, great playing and great production from start to finish.

I wish he had done more records with Doug.

Oh, I've listened to it. I just don't like it. Pre-conditioned. Just one of those things.
