Their early music in particular was pretty poppish. Great pop songs, yes, but pop songs nonetheless. They'd definitely be in my top 3 anyway.

Two other excellent bands.

I do think U2 definitely belong up there, too, though.

Rolling Stones
Led Zeppelin
The Who

I think all rock bands, in one way or another, owe a lot to these guys.

The Beatles just aren't a pop band. Ok, they made popular music, but it's rock'n'roll, especially the late years.

I say:

U2 - Solely because of Achtung Baby.
Beatles - Revolutionary ideas, John Lennon is a member.
The Doors - There's Doors music and hen there's normal music. They just made really incredible music.

Ok...well my 3 favorite bands are not the 3 greatest rock bands of all time.
my 3 would be:
Pearl Jam
The Who

But I am fully aware that if you consider everything from influence to musicianship and so forth, there is no question that the top 3 rock bands of all time should be:
Led Zeppelin
The Rolling Stones
The Beatles

If you want to argue the Beatles are not rock (which may have some validity), then substitute The Who.

The Beatles
The Who
Led Zeppelin

As for the Beatles argument, substitute Black Sabbath (Ozzy years only) in their place if you dont consider the Beatles rock. Too many people forget about Sabbath.

I really hope people are taking the piss by including Nickelback and Puddle of Vomit in this discussion. Any bands that have songs like "Feeling Way Too Damn Good" dont deserve to have access to recording studios.

As for favorites, they would go...

1. The Beatles
2. U2

the rest is ever changing
