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.

I've looked at it. Unfortunately, I could buy a Micro Terror for that kind of coin.

I've got to go a cheaper route right now but thanks for the suggestion all the same.

I'd go for a POD HD. You can record both guitar and bass plus it comes with a USB editor, which is amazingly helpful.

No offense to DW but I think the Orange Tiny Terror is garbage. I'd purchase a high quality active direct box, like a Radial JV48, record all your guitars and basses directly into your Daw, then insert the POD Pro on the group busses in your DAW.

That way, you can edit the guitar and bass tones during mixing, instead of being locked into something that doesn't work. Good luck!

That's certainly fair enough. If you have the intimate details I don't really want to know them anyway, the specifics aren't important. It's too bad though. Seems to happen way too much.

no offense taken; I know jackshit about little amps.

This is the first time I've had any lengthy experience with any, and we've been using like 5-watt Matchless, Badkat, Egnator, and Fuchs heads that they have at the studio. The Egnator or whatever sounds like poo to me...

Edit : I like the sound of big Oranges though, and he wanted 'small quiet and cheap so that was my suggestion, based on his criteria, not any experience I've ever had with a TT.

Double Edit : with the budget it sounds like you're working with, I'll second the POD suggestion. Plethora of workable tones in all kinds of configurations you can set yourself at a decent price.

He built the power soak so that he could record non-Master volume Marshall 1959 amps with the volume knobs cranked, which made for his "unique" sound. He played all the instruments on every track save for one, in which his friend Jim Messina played drums.

He was a keyboardist by nature but B. Goudreau taught him to play guitar. And not ironically, he sounded like Fece (although Fece didn't play on the first record).

He double tracked Brad Delp's vocals on every song but the second take, he'd speed up the tape machine by 5%, then play it back in normal speed. This made for the "wider", "chorused", signature vocal sound.

Tom was really an innovator and the production on that first record, unlike many albums from the 70's and 80's, really stands the test of time as one of the best produced rock albums ever.
Thank you.

Small 5 watt and 15 watt amps that are "designed" to sound like 100 watt amps suck ass.

First off the designs don't allow for a large output transformer or large tubes. Outside of an AC30 (Matchless, Bruno - all AC30 clones), EL84 based amps sound like shit. It's just impossible to make a 5 watt transformer sound like a 100 watt transformer.

Personally, I think they're a waste of money. There are far more elegant solutions to miking up a cab, including sound proofing and treating a closet, isolation cabinets like those offered by James Demeter, Randall, Silent Sister, etc., THD hotplate or just running a 100 watt head straight to a cabinet for a load with the master volume set to zero, then sending the effects loop signal directly to a DAW for use with cabinet sims in Guitar Rig, ReCabinet, Red Wirez.

They're a marketing gimmick.

But honestly:

1st and foremost: Tool
Mudvayne
Shinedown
Metallica
Rage Against the Machine

Rock is hard to generalize because of the massive amounts of sub genres. I'd throw Trivium around, along with Red Hot Chili Peppers, and even though I would've put Dream Theater in there for every amazingly epic song they have they make a terrible slow song. Panic Attack is one of the best songs ever made though.

I've played some of the Orange lunchbox amps at the shop and while they may not be ideal, they sure as hell sound better than my Crate on 3 volume. My problem is that I've got a 110-pound monster that I originally got 20 years ago for gigging. It's worthless for recording.

I'm only going to list the ones I've seen live because there are a lot of folks that make great music in the studio, but can't perform on stage. In no particular order:
The Who
The Rolling Stones
The Doobie Brothers
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band
Alternate: Fleetwood Mac

As a side note, I did see the Beatles (who knows, couldn't hear a thing over the screams), The Doors (Morrison was so stoned you couldn't understand him), and a host of others that were really solo acts (Joplin, Hendrix).
