Black Sabbath is one of the heaviest bands ever and invented a whole new genre of music.

U2 is the foremost of these exceptions - they are possibly the greatest rock band of all time and definitely the biggest. A lot of people don't like them because of this massive success, but they achieved it on the back of genuinely original, transformative music.
Best Rock Bands of All Time Rock and roll is a genre of music that emerged as a defined musical style in the American South in the 1950s, and quickly spread to the rest of the country, and the world. It later evolved into the various different sub-genres of what is now called simply "rock".
Since its debut, the band has sold over 25 million records in the United States alone, and over 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, in its first year of eligibility.
Radiohead can do all of these things in a moment, and it drives me fucking crazy. My reaction to Radiohead isn't as simple as jealousy. Jealousy just burns; Radiohead infuriate me. But if it were only that, I wouldn't go back and listen to those records again and again. Listening to Radiohead makes me feel like I'm a Salieri to their Mozart.
My top bands go like this: Led Zeppelin Red hot chili peppers Rolling Stones Jimi Hendrix Experience Nirvana The Beatles I'm obviously biased, but I haven't fallen in love with any bands entire catalogue except for zeppelin and RHCP. RHCP is my favorite band, but I can accept that zeppelin did more for music.
Pearl Jam is much better than it is listed as. Eddie Vedder's lyrics are just beautiful poetry and the music is nothing short of amazing. It's awful that this band usually gets overlooked when people talk about the greatest bands of all time. Pearl Jam is the greatest bands of 90's and is celebrating 25 years of active playing next week.
The tour saw the band perform classic Fleetwood Mac songs from the initial 1967–1974 era. In 1995, at a concert in Tokyo, the band was greeted by former member Jeremy Spencer, who performed a few songs with them. On 10 October 1995, Fleetwood Mac released the unsuccessful Time album.
The Clash began as a traditional punk band with their debut single "White Riot," but they soon embraced everything from rockabilly to reggae to hip-hop. Their 1980 LP London Calling is often called one of the greatest LPs of all-time, but all five of their albums are near-perfect.
The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971.The Eagles are one of the world's best-selling bands in history, having sold more than 150 million records and 100 million in the U.S. alone—including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California.They are the fifth-highest-selling music act and the highest-selling American band in U.S. history.
This is all my opinion. Most people think Coldplay only writes sad love songs. As a Coldplay fan who has listened to many of their songs I can tell you that that is not true. Yes some of their songs are not that good but all bands hove songs like that. But Coldplay also has some of the best music out there.
Beginning their career as the most popular surf band in the nation, the Beach Boys finally emerged by 1966 as America's preeminent pop group, the only act able to challenge (for a brief time) the overarching success of the Beatles with both mainstream listeners and the critical community.
Rush are simply the greatest band of all time. Neil Peart, one of (if not the most) technically gifted drummers of all time, as well as one of the most intelligent lyricists of all time. Geddy Lee, how he performs those insane bass lines whilst singing and playing the keyboards (whilst simultaneously uses synth pedals) all at the same time is beyond me.
Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's ...read more.
Creedence Clearwater Revival By Stephen Malkamus My parents had basically nine vinyl albums, all greatest hits: the Beatles' red/blue albums, Carpenters, Neil Diamond, Elton John, the Beach Boys' Endless Summer, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot ... and Creedence Gold.
The Sex Pistols By Billie Joe Armstrong The Sex Pistols released just one album — Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols — but it punched a huge hole in everything that was bullshit about rock music, and everything that was going wrong with the world, too.
It will be very difficult to decide the number one American rock band of all times as it is nearly impossible to compare bands like Pearl Jam, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Green Day, Guns 'n Roses, The Ramones, The Doors, Aerosmith, Kiss, Nirvana, The Eagles, Boston, Van Halen and ofcourse, The Grateful Dead. All of them being the best American rock bands of all time, IMO.
The rich harmonies, memorable lyrics and distinctive sound of the Bee Gees helped the Australian Gibb brothers become one of the greatest bands of all time. From their earliest charting days with “New York Mining Disaster 1941” in 1967 to a string of iconic hits spanning the ‘70s and ‘80s, the Bee Gees made a huge contribution to the musical landscape.
Even if the band’s earliest and most lauded material doesn’t conform to the modern definitions of metal, the band’s later output most certainly does, and anyway, who cares, let’s dance. More importantly, Motörhead may not have topped this list, but they are certainly the Most Metal Metal Band of All Time.
The Arctic Monkeys are an amazing group. Listen to Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured, Fluorescent Adolescent, and Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But... To see what I'm talking about. The Arctic Monkeys crush all the other bands, including the Beatles. Nothing beats these guys not even the view from the afternoon.
The Kinks are the only major band from the Sixties I can think of that didn't go psychedelic, didn't do any of that crap that all of the other big bands did at the time. When everyone was writing song cycles about Eastern mysticism, Ray Davies was writing about a two-up/two-down flat in some English suburb.
