Top 10 Rock bands

My opinion on the top 10 best (not necessarily most talented) rock bands ever. Up for a debate?
1

Pink Floyd

Buy 'The Wall' album & 'Dark Side Of The Moon'
Sit down.
Listen.
Appreciate.
I really don't get how a rock fan could not like Pink Floyd, they are simply amazing. David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright.
These guys are seriously talented and one of the most influential rock bands after The Beatles of course. Just listen to have a cigar (Roy Harper on vocals I know) And Hey You, I could sit here and name a girthy list of songs but i'd be here for quite some time. The combination of Waters concepts and lyrics and Gilmours guitar/vocals (as well as the fine musicianship of Rick Wright and Nick Mason)produced a force that generates Pink Floyd addicts to this very day. Few quick notes about pink floyd:
They are their own categoy
Their last tour was the most espenxive one in music history
The above concerts were being played at STADIUMS full of people, inside and outside
The cops there couldn't even arrest people with drugs (marajuana, LSD). I can't even remember how many times someone passed a joint to me
2

The Beatles

Not really much I can say, John Lennon and the guys from Liverpool captured the world emotionally. I don't think anyone that knows music properly could slag the beatles of with rage. Although I think John Lennon was a bit of a c*ck lol, but a good man, everyone seems to love him but ive done some research.
But they aren't being judged on personality.

Led Zep

Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and the late John Bonham... Led Zeppelin; four individuals from differing backgrounds with diverse personalities and creativity came together composing, producing, and performing music without limits.

They are legendary and formed the backbone of what "hard rock" is defined as today. Jimmy Page was and still is the heart and soul of Led Zeppelin

The Who

5

The Doors

6

The Rolling Stones

7

Nirvana

I agree with those, who added Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix.

My additions:
The Doors
Emerson Lake and Palmer
The Small Faces
Santana
The Flying Lizards (Punk, not rock)
Bay City Rollers
Spice Girls
Cream/Blind Faith/Derek and the Dominoes
Little Richard

To a lesser degree:
Colosseum
Rory Gallagher
Al Steward
Police
Genesis
Peter Gabriel
Nancy Sinatra (not a joke)
Chuck Berry
Eric Burdon / Animals
Uriah Heap
Prince Jones
Alexandre Vasilievich Ulyanov and his Banjo and Harmonium Ensemble

P.s. I was only joking re: the BCR and SG.

I wouldn't call Nirvana rock. A lot of their stuff was just drug fuelled noise. Metallica would have to make this list. I know most of their stuff is heavy but when you listen to it from a pure musicians point of view and actually play some of their stuff its clear that a lot of it is rock. Just played faster and a bit louder. But its origin is rock none the less.

thepooka
I would include Deep Purple in there..!
