Greatest Rock Band Ever
 
Excluding the Beatles of course because I already know people's thoughts on them, who is the greatest rock band to ever exist period? :confused2:

Discuss. :guitar:

The Monkees, for their influence on the Beatles.

Acie 08-07-2008 01:54 PM

Impossible IMO to pick one outside of The Beatles.

However - The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd all tie for second.

If were talking rock gotta be Zeplin

I won't tell my wife that or she'll be all over you. Outside of REM, her favourite band are the Monkees. :)

Hence why I've excluded them already. So maybe I should edit the title to "2nd Greatest Band Ever". ;)

Out of curiosity, what makes Pink Floyd so good? They're another one of those bands I can't stand and I've never figured out the fascination with them. :confused2:
