Personal favorite is probably U2, but I've got to credit 50 years of rock and roll from the Rolling Stones.

U2. But also maybe Radiohead and Muse. We'll have to see how much longevity they have though.

It's hard not to list The Beatles as number 1 considering the impact they had on music. And during my youth The Eagles had a similar influence. Lots of really good bands out there that deserve mention, but as far as being the greatest of all time, it would have to be The Beatles.

Big difference between rock & pop.
Led Zeppelin, second would be The Who.

I can't name a single "greatest" rock group/musician, however among my top favorites in no particular order would be The Doors, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Cream, and The Kinks.

Gotta go with Pink Floyd and The Who.

It is hard to list considering the variables involved, but going the route of music that holds up and stands the test of time; Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones. Yes the Beatles were awesome and had more of an impact, but their overall catalog of music has some weird stuff that just hold me back a little from saying "best band ever".

The clear answer is Spın̈al Tap!

I agree about pop vs R&R, while the Beatles could arguably be the #1 pop band I'd have to go with Led Zeppelin with the current nod going to AC/DC!
Of course I wouldn't argue with The Doors, Rolling Stones, The Who, Cream, etc.

Hard Rock / Metal - Metallica
Mainstream Rock - Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band

It depends. Rock & Roll Band-wise, including longevity, no question it's The Rolling Stones. Now if you are looking for the greatest Pop Rock, "Boy-Band sensation" nobody is in the same universe as The Beatles.

Rush. Their musicianship is incredible and they continue to innovate even on their most recent album.

Would anyone disagree with me if I said Queen?

vote-for3vote-against

Another vote here for Led Zeppelin.

@captainsuperdawg: I was about to come back and add Queen to my list. RIP Freddie!

You guys all had a brain fart when you neglected to mention the all time greatest rock and roll band of all time. The Grateful Dead.

@chezteladog: Sorry, but when I hear "Grateful Dead" I don't think "Greatest rock band ever." I tend to think "Oh yeah, that band that stoner rockers never shut up about."

vote-for2vote-against

I would go for Dire Straits.

all of the above and THE ANIMALS with Eric Burdon!!!
