    best band EVER

    Who do you think is the best rock band to ever record a song. only 10 choices, so i'm sure i left off some people's favorites. i tried to go for a little variety, and many are not bands that i consider worthy of the poll, but i figure they are popular enough to give people the option. if you have read any of the other music threads lately, you know my vote is led zeppelin.

    I've actually heard the music of all these bands. Therefore, it must be a list of "old folks" bands. I voted for the Beatles but the Who was my favorite at the time.

    if there's a band that's come out since 1990 that's better than any of these, please name them.

    Re: best band EVER

    Being a child of the '60's, I can identify with most of these. I voted for the Beatles and they were undoubtedly the best rock group of all time but the best rock band is no doubt the Rolling Stones. If you have ever been to one of their concerts, you would know what I mean. There could be a strong argument, however, for Led Zeplin and Arrowsmith as the best rock band.

    The Eagles would be second to the Beatles as the best rock group.

    i guess i don't understand your distinction between band and group. i guess my definition of "band" is "small group of musicians."

    If I were voting in this thread, I'd probably vote for Zepplin, but I personally enjoy listening to Skynard more than several of the bands on the list...even more than LZ sometimes. I think they're hurt by what Johnny VanZandt has done since the plane crash. That and they don't have the longevity of some of the groups on the list.

    Also, if best "Behind the Music" carries any weight, LS is definitely top 10.

    if i were to include them in the poll, it would definitely have a parenthetical "before the crash."

    Kind of like U2...U2 in the 80's easily deserves to be there...since then, I'd put Puddle of Mudd on the list sooner (not really, but you get the point).

    Well, BAND means I can't select Mr. Dylan.

    I like my rock SOUTHERN FRIED -

    (1) Allman Bros. Band
    (2) CCR
    (3) Skynard

    Out of the ones on Bob's list, I'll take the Beatles.

    Speaking of CCR, I stumbled upon an upsetting discovery the other day. More and more college students are bastardizing the letters CCR to refer to some crappy country band named "Cross Canadian Ragweed".
