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.

Lancemc 02-19-2005 09:50 AM

:lmao: Nickelback makes me laugh.

gareth brown 02-19-2005 10:11 AM

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

MsMofoGone 02-19-2005 11:39 AM

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.

zooperson 02-19-2005 04:17 PM

U2
the Clash
Velvet Underground

"Who's playing now?"

"The Shitty Beatles"

"The Shitty Beatles, how are they?"

"They SUCK!"

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

DaveC 02-19-2005 07:29 PM

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.

2Hearts 02-19-2005 07:44 PM

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

JOFO 02-19-2005 07:52 PM

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.

intedomine 02-19-2005 08:09 PM

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

DaveC 02-19-2005 09:20 PM

Jethro Tull?

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

shaun vox 02-19-2005 09:32 PM

led zeppelin!

Guns n' Roses!

1. Feedback

2. The Hype

3. U2

thrillme 02-22-2005 08:54 PM

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.

RademR 02-22-2005 09:17 PM

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.

Aardvark747 02-24-2005 01:11 AM

JOFO 02-24-2005 08:33 AM

what is with the facisnation with Queen??:huh:

not in the top 10, lest the top 3 ROCK bands of all time.:|

JOFO 02-24-2005 08:34 AM

btw, with regards to pink floyd: you've gotta have more than 3 albums that are huge to make the list.

LeafsNation 02-24-2005 08:40 AM

1. U2
2. Zeppelin
3. The Stones

The most infludential rock band in history were the Beatles.

!!!!! BTW the Beatles were not a pop band. However, they were a ROCK band that had a heavy influence on many forms of music, including pop.

In terms of the most influential band on ROCK itself, Zep and the Stones were second to none....

Piper at the gates of dawn considered the best debut ever done
The wall
wish You Were Here
Dark Side Of The Moon
Animals
even the final cut was high in british charts
Division swell and Momentary lapse of puke sold pretty well too

vocals of robert plant are not the best

Queen rocks for sure , Zepplin overrated

tennispunk 02-24-2005 02:23 PM

taking a very loose definition of "rock"

U2
ok do I really need to explain?

Sham69
oi! oi! oi! This band really makes me want to shout and get my fist in the air.

The Tossers
They can do it all. Raucous songs that you can mosh to (Lucky, Mad Riot), sweet, beautiful ballads to make you cry (Everything's Bad, Wedding, A Night On Earth), political statements (The Ballad of the UN and NATO), and everything in between. "Caoin" is just stunning.

Sorry, but everyone knows that Zep was severely underrated when they were around.

As far as Plants vocals, that's a first! Are you mad? His vocals are a signature sound often imitated, never duplicated. Yes his vocals went down hill after Physical Grafiti, but only because Peter Grant trying to make every cent he could, overbooked Zep in the 72-73 period, esssentially damaging his voice.

mysticchild 02-24-2005 04:49 PM

My 3 favorite rock bands of all time are: 1.U2 2..Journey 3.Zeppelin. Now vocal wise it goes for me: 1. Journey 2.Queen and then 3. Led Zeppelin . I just love Steve Perry's voice. He has such a wide range and man can he hit those high notes. He also has a very bluesy voice too. Now u2 is my favorite band of all time. I was a teenager when their first album was released. But it was the first time I saw them in concert in 85 that just blew me away. Namckur, In Through the Out Door came out in 79 before Coda. John was alive when that album came out and Coda had the rest of the left over recordings that came out in 80, after he died.

discothequeLP 02-24-2005 05:00 PM

1 - The Beatles
2 - Led Zeppelin
3 - U2 (/ Pink Floyd)

ILuvLarryMullen 02-24-2005 10:54 PM

I'm just going to go with my three favorite bands, not who is best/most influential blah blah blah :wink:

1, U2
2. The Police
3. either David Bowie or REM

Pero 02-25-2005 10:57 AM

1.U2
2.Ac/Dc
3.The Rolling Stones

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.

U2girl 02-27-2005 03:58 AM

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.
