Putting Nickelback in the company of U2, REM, Queen, and RHCP is akin to putting Pauly Shore in the company Marlon Brando, Tom Hanks, Sean Penn, Al Pacino, Etc, imo.

I like too many bands of different genres. In terms of explaination I will just provide one for all. Musically, they have impressed me and continue to do so and it's fresh. I don't follow corporate stands of what the best bands are, it is all about personal taste. I'm going to break and provide 5 instead of 3.

1. NIN
2. Bowie
3. U2
4. Depeche Mode
5. The Cure

I'd definitely say the following are the best in my opinion......... Led Zeppelin...Rush...U2...Pink Floyd...The Cure...Puddle Of Mudd.. The Police...UFO...Yes...and The Smashing Pumpkins. These are the "GREAT" rock-n-rollers to me.

"Who's playing now?"

"The Shitty Beatles"

"The Shitty Beatles, how are they?"

"They SUCK!"

"So it's not just a clever name!"

1. Pink Floyd - Because, well, they're quite simply better than U2.
2. U2 - Because, well, they're not quite Pink Floyd.
3. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - The band that had the most influence on guitar rock EVER.
