Definitely a subjective conclusion. But my ten favorite rock bands in no particular order and titles that no music lover should be without include:

The Beatles

The Rolling Stones

The Allman Bros.

Lynryd Skynryd


Pink Floyd

The Eagles

Led Zeppelin

Creedence Clearwater Revival


I consider these bands the giants of rock-n-roll. It's hard to put the best bands in a category of ten and not leave out ones equally as good. But these are the first ten bands that came to my mind.

No two lists would be identical. Mine would read:



The Ramones

Talking Heads


Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

The Sex Pistols



Jimmy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band.

I'd be surprised if anyone's top 10 mirrored that, but beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. I don't put a lot of stock in top 10 lists, because, as previously stated, it is all subjective. However.... If you view AC/DC's "Stiff Upper Lip- LIVE" DVD, there are a squillion (don't ask for a numerical quantification, there was a lot of people there) folks in the audience. They have made SOMEONE's top 10 list.

Take Care,

I agree with most of what was listed

Mine would be in alphabetical order (most of them, that I think are the best / most significant to R&R, not necessarily my 10 favorites. I know I'm missing a few)

The Beatles

Black Sabbath

The Doors

The Eagles

Jimi Hendrix

Led Zeppelin

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Pink Floyd

Rolling Stones

The Who

Who are the best 10 ever? My, that's quite a question. How to answer and get it right?? How to answer and not let my tatste dictate my choice?

I'll give it a go! ::

1: The Beatles.

2: The Rolling stones.

3: The Band.

4: The Who.

5: Yes.

6: The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

7: Santana.

8: Black Sabbath.

9: Frank Zappa and the mother's of invention.

10: Led Zeppelin.

That is not easy. I had to leave out a great many. People I would like to have included would include, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The Velvet underground. Allman brother's. Fleetwood Mac. The Doors. Genesis. U2. Deep Purple. Metallica. Emerson Lake and Palmer. Joy Division. The Ramones. King Crimson. Heart. Pearl Jam. Judas Priest. Jane's Addiction. The Average White Band. The Cure. And so many more.
