Default Who is the BEST band ever?

We seem to have a wide spectrum of tastes here when it comes to music. Who would you consider to be the best band of all times? Notice I didn't say Rock band........

I say the Beatles. I say the Beatles because they kept re-inventing them selves with each new album release.........and I do enjoy their music.

For me it depends on my mood and what I am doing at the time. Overall I would have to say it would be the Eagles. But not too far behind would be: Zepplin, Skynyrd, Aerosmith(their earlier stuff), BTO,GNR,Pink Floyd,Van Halen,Boston,Steely Dan,AC/DC,Bad Co,ZZ Top,Heart and Elton John (just kidding)

Best band ever? Sorta like arguing over who is/was the prettiest girl in the world.

I don't have just one favorite band despite my very narrow choice of music, rock both hard and Southern. You can look at my forum name and pretty well figure me for a Skynyrd fan, which I am.

If I were given the opportunity to see any band live in concert at any particular point in their carreer, I'd have to pick ZZ Top. Top bands of all time Aerosmith, AD/DC, Deep Purple / Rainbow, Van Halen, Skynyrd, and yes ZZ Top.

Nobody has mentioned Twisted Sister yet?



Frank Zappa is a close second.

Stan Kenton was the best.

Jack Teagarden was best, way back when, but I’m kinda prejudiced on that choice of my relative.

Wow! sorta gives away my age.

The first time I saw those guys back in the late 70'/ early 80's they were kicked off the stage by the fans in the middle of their second song! The second time I saw them was 2.5 yrs ago at another concert festival, they were no better......actually I went to the beer tent and sat and had a few beers with the lead singer of Cheap Trick!


Abbey Road IS a KILLER album!!!!!!!!!!

I still have to agree with those in The Beatles camp.

As far as the Eagles are concerned, they were the very first vinyl I ever bought (their 1972 self titled album). I taught myself to play guitar to that band. Whenever I hear Train Leaves Here This Mornin', everyone around me has to shaddup. And my dream vacation is still a classic pickup ride across the west listning to the Eagles. My band does Tequila Sunrise and Desperado in our set now too.
