Greatest Rock Band Of All Time

The Rolling Stones
The Stones #38? Are you kidding me? Proof positive why they shouldn't let 'tweeners vote on the all-time greatest anything except episodes of Sponge Bob. Twenty years from now, if this question is asked, the Rolling Stones will still be in the discussion. And bands like 30 seconds to Mars, Linkin Park, and their ilk will be just cutout records in the dump bin.
Kept scrolling down thinking 'well surely the stones are next... ' Number 37? Are you kidding me? I think I've lost fate in humanity! I wouldn't mind as much, but 30 Seconds To Mars are at number 6 for gods sake! The Beatles should be number 1 and The Rolling Stones should be number two! Any song by The Rolling Stones would have been a hit for 30 Seconds To Mars, but for The Rolling Stones it was just another song on another album!
They are a great classic rock band and they made lots of influences. Some people know them as The Beatles Rivals!
Here is a fact. They can't ALL be in the top ten. Admittedly some shouldn't be in the top ten or are too high up in this list. Only ones that should be there are Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. Metallica at number one? The only good albums they've made are "Kill 'Em All", "Ride The Lightening". That is IT. The Rolling Stones have made like forty which are all decent and most of them are brilliant.
Rush should be here also. And they are. Maybe they should be higher, but you can't have EVERYBODY in the top ten.
About twenty of the top thirty should be t
Where on earth are Black Sabbath? Although they started off as a twelve bar blues band, they INVENTED heavy metal and Tony Iommi is a metal god. Without them there would be no Metallica! 47th Black Sabbath are.
The Who at 38? Tool at 43? Porcupine Tree not even here at all? Dream Theater not here? Cream so low down?
WHAT IS THE BLOODY POINT, EVERYBODY just SAYS OOH THIS BAND IS THE BEST, OH MY GOD WHY AREN'T THIS BAND HERE, BLAH BLAH BLAH, IT doesn't WORK WHEN EVERYONE DOES THAT AND TOO BE HONEST ITS UNDERSTANDABLE AS EVERYONE HAS A PREFERRED BAND, BUT COME ON, BEST ROCK BANDS? ROLLING STONES SHOULD BE IN THE TOP TEN, they're NOT THE BEST ON THIS LIST BUT THEY ARE ONE OF THE WORST REPRESENTED, NO MUSE ARE NOT WORTHY OF TOP 20, THEY ARE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BANDS BUT at least I CAN ADMIT THAT, AEROSMITH, BEATLES, LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD, GUNS N ROSES, BLACK SABBATH, RUSH, ACDC, QUEEN SHOULD ALL BE AMONG THE TOP, RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS PROBABLY MY FAVOURITE BAND SHOULD NOT BE TOP 20, THEY ARE AMAZING TO ME BUT I'm SORRY I'm NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO PUT THEM THIS HIGH, THIS LIST IS A DISGRACE, ROLLING STONES 34? IDIOTS DO YOUR RESEARCH THEY SHOULD BE TOP 5 AND I don't EVEN LIKE THEM THAT MUCH
The Rolling Stones At #15? Man Are you ' Kidding Me here? I mean they were the top five of both mid 60s and 70s! Their Farewell Concert was the biggest ever! And they still remain the best! I know The Beatles and led Zep should be there in the top 5... There are less stones fans nowadays but I think that they should at least be in top 10. Bands like this basically shaped the rock n roll genre...
Ridiculous. The Stones are the best. Even though they have successfully made soft songs (wild horses, lady jane, as tears go by, ruby tuesday, angie) they always maintain this hard rock badboy attitude. This is what makes them better than the beatles. Their incredible diversity makes them better than all the hardrock bands (AC/DC, Zeppelin, Metallica, G&R) and better than Pink Floyd (Though PF is number 2 in my opinion).
the stones should be 1 they are the best rock abnd ever the blues the country the excitement the instrumentation everything they were amazing and simple on a grander scale with the suttle slide licks or the blues licks it was all around decadent sleazy bluesy and most important rock n roll
this is B.S the Rolling Stones are the best band ever...came from the 60's..and we loved them then..threw to the 90's and rocked like never before..AND even still today there out on tour and rocking like gods..THEY ARE GODS(Keith,Mick,Charlie,Ronny,Brian(R.I.P)
The rolling stones are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, complete lyrical geniuses, amazing guitarists, the rolling stones are iconic, they represent rock and roll, I am shocked that they're they only #36?
A band that has been making for about 45 years. They have stood the test of time. They are an amazing band. And 30 secons to mars is at number 3. This list is a discrace. A band that had the ability to make an album like Exile On Maint ST and many others deserve to be at number 1.
R you kidding me the stones should be number 1 at least above pink Floyd they perfected rock the Beatles invented it the stones had a type of music that just got you excited and made you want to listen to it the Beatles were more soothing the stones lead the way for newer rock bands today without them we'd still think hey Jude was rock
The Rolling Stones should be at least in the top 5. There's no other band with longer history than the Rolling Stones. Please people, let's make this ranking a little bit more seriuos
are my eyes which are playing games to me!!!The Stones the greatest rock bands of all times in that position!!!number 1 now...crazy people
50 years in the business, countless rock radio staples, can sell out the largest venues in the world, and they are voted lower than linkin park? Not to mention two bands I have never even heard of who the hell is 30 seconds to mars or tokio hotel?
They are lengendary they should at least be in the top! They're emotions are LEGENDARY! And everyone in it are always evolved unlike most other bands so that is why I think they should be in the top then!
HAHAHAHA, like if this band could be compared to any of the others? You kidding me? The Rolling STones sucked like the Beatles, they just mattered very much in music history, you can't give them credit for that, laugh out loud. Their songs are pretty much qualifying to #60 or somethin, this is not the Rock and Roll hall of fame, noobs!
I don't want to know why Rolling Stones are 14th behind Linkin Park, Nirvana, Tokio Hotel, Green Day, A7F and Guns n' Roses, while they are one of the best FIVE rock bands of all time.
Is this a joke? The Rolling Stones on #33?... Well luckily we can't take this list seriously, like AT ALL. Because ANY list regarding good music that doesn't put The Rolling Stones and The Beatles on numbers 1 and 2, AND has Tokio Hotel in the top 10 is NOT to be taken seriously.
The Rolling Stones is the greatest rock band on earth with the best live acts and the band with most albums from 1962 to 2012 and they stand at the top and earn a spot in the top 5.
2. The Stones
3. The Who
4. Led Zeppelin
That's how it should go. Linkin park and 30 seconds to mars are just mainstream bands that are truly the reason why today's music is as awful as it is.
I mean come on the stones should be in everyone's top 3 (beatles, led zep) even if you don't like them you have to admit they accomplished more than anyone. They were the face of a generation. Will always be #1 in these eyes
When you think of rock bands these are the guys who must come first... I still get the most SATISFACTION and the most SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL from the greatest rock band in the world
ARE YOU KIDDING ME THE ROLLINGSTONES ARE THE BEST ROCK BAND EVER they paved the way for bands today invented the type of rock we here today and started an age of rebellion this is what led to stuff like nirvana and other rebellious bands
The stones are simply the greatest (and will for ever be) rock n' roll band ever. There is no argument there and there never should be, the Beatles are good (amazing actually) but I think we can all say they aren't a "rock n' roll" band m
