ABC ePrep is reporting that METALLICA, AC/DC, GUNS N' ROSES, DEF LEPPARD, AEROSMITH and VAN HALEN are among the bands featured on Q magazine's new list of the Top 50 Bands Of All Time. The British magazine used a formula to come up with the results for the list. Each band was rated with a point system that measured the sale of their biggest album, the scale of their largest headlining show and the total number of weeks spent on the U.K. album chart.

Q magazine's complete Top 50 Bands Of All Time list is as follows:

01. PINK FLOYD
02. LED ZEPPELIN
03. ROLLING STONES
04. U2
05. QUEEN

08. THE BEATLES
09. BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS
10. FLEETWOOD MAC
11. THE EAGLES
12. THE BEACH BOYS
13. OASIS
14. BON JOVI
15. GUNS N' ROSES
16. NIRVANA
17. GENESIS
18. BEE GEES
19. METALLICA
20. BOSTON
21. R.E.M.
22. BACKSTREET BOYS
23. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
24. AC/DC
25. THE POLICE
26. STEVE MILLER BAND
27. ABBA
28. SANTANA
29. SIMPLY RED
30. SUPERTRAMP
31. THE CARPENTERS
32. JOURNEY
33. SPICE GIRLS
34. DEF LEPPARD
35. DEEP PURPLE
36. UB40
37. AEROSMITH
38. WHAM!

Much of that list is shit, but I see nothing wrong with Metallica being on a list of 50 greatest bands.

Lots of crap on there. I think Dire Straights is a very good band. However, I don't think they rank in the top 50 at all....To put them 6th boggles my mind.

METALLICA, AC/DC, GUNS N' ROSES, AEROSMITH, and VAN HALEN I can see being in top 50 bands of all time. They are legends or very influential. I'm iffy on Def Leppard though... You can bash the list but these bands defintely deserve the praise.

This list is exceptionally awful ... notice its top 50 BANDS of all time .... n sync, spice girls, and others are manufactured products of the music entertainment industry....

Pink Floyd is NOT number one - not even close.... and the Beatles got pushed down kind of far... other greats are not even represented here.... yuck.
