ooohhhh there are so many, the obvious choices would be of course,

the beatles, if only for the prolific Lennon/McCartney writing partnership

the beach boys, for the breakthrough of 'pet sounds'

the rolling stones, for surving

David Bowie, after seeing him live just recently, I was certainly able to hear how his musical style has influenced so, so, soooooooo many other artists and the fact that he looked and sounded first class for a man nearing 60, just adds to his living legend status!

U2, well cause they are U2

the clash, whilst the Sex Pistols might of been the punk band to grab all of the attention the clash had the longevity and talent

and now some that I dont think have been mentioned,

Robert Johnson, the father of the delta blues style and probably the most influential blues musician, nearly all blues musicians and 60s rockers have been inspired by this man

Brian Eno, for making ambient and progressive rock interesting and beautiful

Paul Simon, for the lyrics, harmonies and highlighting the struggles of apartheid

The Smiths, The Beatles, Pre-Elvis "black music", Elvis, The Beastie Boys, Boards of Canada, Radiohead. I suppose U2 could be mentioned too, but I'm hesitant because I can't really think of too many bands who've come all that close to having a sound similiar to theirs.
