Your Top 10 Bands Of All Time!

TheRollingBonesTheRollingBones Headliner
edited March 2013 in History of Rock
I was just thinking about this and was surprised that nobody posted anything like this. I guess just do what the title says, and post your top 10 bands/artists. They don't have to be from any particular genre, decade, or whatever. Just your top 10.
I had a really tough time narrowing it down to 10, and this will probably be revised soon. Anyways, here it is.

My Top 10:

1. The Beatles
2. Led Zeppelin
3. The Who
4. Queen
5. The Rolling Stones
6. Pink Floyd
7. Jimi Hendrix
8. The Eagles
9. Rush
10. Aerosmith

*Honorable Mention*
Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, U2, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, The Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Metallica, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, and many more.

    Wow, definitely some very, very different opinions on this thread. But one list I'm down with for sure is LtPepper's. You have good taste in music for the most part my friend. Along with other good lists like harveyglobetrot, schmeankman, and clashcityrocker. Those are all pretty good lists in my opinion. :D

    Versailles
    Muse
    Bjork
    Radiohead
    Malice Mizer

    Good place to start is their score for either Suspiria or Profondo Rosso. Their music for Dawn of the Dead '78 is amazing and as diverse as nothing I've ever heard before.
