of what you have there:

 

1) Led Zeppelin

2) Black Sabbath

 

@ creep: I agree, the Beatles were a "boy band" and a gimmick band, although very good at what they did.

 

but I am going to have to disagree about AC/DC....cheap gimmick band...a cool riff does not a song make.

Actually they made many songs with the same riff, by their own admition.

 

After 33 years they still have record ticket sales all over the world. They're the kind of band you go see in concert for the big nostalgia factor.

 

And the naked women. :D

 

Most of their albums are iffy with only 1 or 2 songs really worth a listen but they 're used to promote concert tickets sales and Live is where this band is at.

You haven't seen a rock concert until you've seen AC/DC.

Also there has been good spoof material that others have donebased on their songs. For example Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep. When I heard that song I could have swear that the singing of AC/DC was actually singing it.

WTF? Where's Queen?


People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

dont' get me wrong, I actually like some AC/DC tracks just as I like some KISS tracks or Motley Crue tracks...but I know a good band from a gimmick band.

 

of theirs, my favorites would have to be:

 

TNT

Hell's Bells (love that opening riff)

She Shook She (love the intro)

AC/DC's best song is Money Talks, no doubt. I could never hit the notes well enough to do a decent cover though, without really damaging my throat.

Tool is a solid band, no question. They approach albums the way bands like Led Zepplin and Blue Oyster Cult do--an album is a complete thought, a musical novela.

 

not just a couple of would-be hits and a bunch of filler.

KISS > Ac/Dc

 

 

 

(and 'A Perfect Circle' is rubbish. MJK alone does not a Tool make )

It's silly to have bands like Beatles (or Rolling Stones) on these kind of polls, since their influence on music and the whole rock-culture to this day. My choice would be between Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath.

 

But ofcourse, nothing beats Pink Floyd.

Voted Iron Butterfly accidentally, misread to be Iron Maiden.

 

My favourite band is nowhere to be seen but that is understandable as you can't exactly type them all out.

 

So if there was the option: RUSH :p:)

I could hear the birds speaking to one another in trees over the horizon, I could hear the rustlings as the clouds rubbed against each other in the sky. I could hear the sound a rainbow makes as it arches it's back over the world. Then a dog barked behind me and I burst my left eardrum."

Yep.

 

There are:

 

Dirty Deeds

Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution

Fly on the Wall

Back in Black

Money Talks

Thunderstruck

 

Just to name a few...

 

 

4 Albums AC/DC fans need :

1- Back in Black

2- Highway to Hell

3- Powerage

4- AC/DC Live(Any)

I would add "For those About to Rock". I think it's a good album, just not anywhere near "Back in Black" level.

Yeah, but they are only useful if I find myself at a dance party back in the 1920's.  :huh:

 

I voted for Led Zepplin.  Dark Side of the Moon is the best ever.

>_<

 

Dark Side of the Moon was done by Pink Floyd.

Hades was the life of the party. RIP You'll be missed.

And thats one of those overrated albums. The real masterpieces are "Wish you were here" and "Animals"
