Question 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?

Discuss.

Impossible IMO to pick one outside of The Beatles.

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

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.
