    It won't take very long to get them home but it won't be overnight either but Iraq says they can't stay and they are coming home just like Trump said.

    "Best" can be defined a lot of different ways. My favorite is Roth-era Van Halen.

    The most enduring and relevant band of the last sixty years has to be the Rolling Stones.

    Hands down.

    I'm not even all that crazy about them.

    Who is the greatest rock band of all time?

    9/11 Thermate experiments

    Winston Churchhill on why the U.S. should have stayed OUT of World War I

    "I am so %^&*^ sick of this cult of Ron Paul. The Paulites. What is with these %^&*^ people? Why are there so many of them?" YouTube rant by "TheAmazingAtheist"

    Led Zeppelin beyond any shadow of a doubt.

    The musicianship of all four combined exceed the sum of the individuals.

    Electric Light Orchestra

    99% of their songs are really good. Not many bands have multiple albums where every song on the album is good. ELO has at least 6 such albums

    Here's a good example of that: I agree with AF that Led Zeppelin is the best on the basis of the criteria he mentioned, while I said AC/DC is the best on the basis that they are closest to the "Platonic ideal" of a rock band - they are the distilled essence of the look, the sound, and the feel of what I think of when someone asks "what is a rock band?". (I like AC/DC a lot, but there are others I like better - such as ZZ Top and, of course, Led Zeppelin.)

    How do you define "rock"? The same way as the "Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame"?

    Does Metallica qualify? Snoop Dogg? Abba? The Pointer Sisters?

    Ian Anderson wrote the anthem of our age. Not the age will still cling to--Don McLean wrote that anthem. I mean this millennium.



    Anybody who can play heavy metal on a flute is the greatest something ever. Not sure what. But definitely the greatest.

    I'm also noting that you said "greatest" instead of "best" -- if the question is greatest, by many measurements I'd go with Zeppelin.

    Oooh...interesting distinction.

    "Best"... maybe Rush, maybe Tool, maybe Smashing Pumpkins???

    Zep and AC/DC are pretty much the definition of blues based rock. And maybe that is what we mean by the term "rock". (Although one might say that Zep is the master, and AC/DC the student.)

    But when we start evolving away from pure blues based rock, then Black Sabbath was the master. They influenced everything that would be considered metal.

    Maybe one way to judge bands would be their influence. How many bands were influenced by, or clones of some other band? Once again, Zep may have spawned more than any other rock band.

    An excellent choice. And as far as influence, EVH inspired as many guitarists as Jimi Hendrix. Speaking of which, no mentions of Jimi?!
