    While there is always controversy, theres gotta be a Poll for this, expecially since we're opening a new section for Music....

    I can always alter the Poll, so vote or chime in on whats missing...

    Its a toss up between Metallica, Soudgarden and Van Halen, so I went with what made me what I am today, Metallica.... Gods for sure, with a resume that transcends most others...

    For me it is Metallica! The greatest band in the world and the band that influenced me the most. I have seen them 9 times since 1989 and they are the greatest band in the world.

    I went with AC/DC. Again it just edged out metallica but not by much! AC/DC was the band that introduced me to hard rock/heavy metal

    Long Live Bon!

    No groaning from me. Zep established my love for rock. But I'm gonna have to think about "world's greatest" and "rock". That's gonna require some more thought.

    Beatles - as mentioned in the greatest singer poll - they set the benchmark and their influence is unsurpassed....

    Sorry if I seem double-posting, but you're missing The Experience, Jimi Hendrix's original band.

    Ok... I've taken the best band from each decade starting with the sixties then divided that with the genre that they perfected added the best from each country and interspersed that with the difference between girl bands, boy bands and hair bands, mixed in best singer, best guitar and best roadie then compared them to Sinatra and combined album cover art with tonal quality and mayonaise and I get......

    Beatles: they are the Bible of rock, even Dylan admitted it...
    Although being a generation too young I discovered them late: my memories start with Genesis, Pink Floyd, CSN&Y, The Band, Jefferson Airplane (and related Starship, Hot tuna etc.) , Allmann Brothers, Nitty Gritty (yes, I also like country rock!), Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Frank Zappa Mother of Inventions, before I steered in the English-Gaelic-Irish folk.

    And Jacques Brel, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Fabrizio de Andre' as chansonniers.
