I think most of our answers to this poll will inevitably be our 3 favorite bands, with the stipulation that they are at least somewhat famous (I would not try to claim that Transatlantic is one of the top 3 bands of all-time even though I am a big fan).
With that in mind my top 3 are:

1. Beatles
2. Pink Floyd
3. U2

while I enjoy pink floyd, they are not anywhere near as diverse, accomplished, imitated, and influential as led zeppelin.
zeppelin had better tunes to boot.

okay, let the childish arguing begin.

1. U2 - brilliance counts for more than influence
2. Beatles - gave us rock music as we know it
3. Jethro Tull - forgotten legends

Apologies: Nirvana, Radiohead, Stone Roses, REM, Led Zeppelin, Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd

Jethro Tull?

I will never have the same respect after they won Best Heavy Metal in the Grammys. :rolleyes:

1. The Rollingstones
Aside from licensing too many of their songs for advertisements, still rock legends.

2. The Clash

They also included reggae influences, politically charged lyrics, whose torch U2 obviously relayed and ran with. Too bad they didn't stick it out longer.

3. U2
Actually my favourite rock band ever, but even in a U2 forum, putting them too high should be done with caution.

I'm sure I don't have to explain U2 too much here, but they've stuck it out longer together as a rock band, than those that came before, and their peers (bands that started in late 70's/early 80's)

Never released a "self-titled" album other bands do that, and it's a little annoying, have to refer to an album by it's colour. White album, black album, green album, sheesh, why not just name it after a colour, if you couldn't come up with anything better than naming it after yourself.

The Beatles earlier work was a bit poppy, be honest, even Edge said something like that at the induction of the Clash.

"Top 3 rock bands of all time", not top 3 bands of all time.

The Beatles are no rock band... they are a pop band. U2's no rock band... they are a loud folk band.

U2 are a rock band, because of their rhythm section, and whenever Edge decides to get edgy, i.e. ZooTV sydney version of "Bullet."

Listen to the bass and drums on early U2 albums, that's no pop or folk band.

"Like a Song" for example.
