Who is the Best Rock Band Ever?

Yes, this one is for fun, or maybe to sharpen debate skills on something not so serious.

Include all sub-genres.

Try to be somewhat objective, and support your points.  Video/audio could be quite useful!

My candidate is Led Zeppelin. Their technical skill was incredible, the impact they made on music was only matched by a handful, and they brought hard rock into the mainstream. Their top song was (and perhaps still is) the most requested of all time:

Stairway to Heaven

Phew this is difficult. I think one of my all time favorite songs is No Leaf Clover by Metallica.

I do like more of Queen's songs though, Freddie Mercury was a presence on stage that few can rival.

If we are going for metal I'd say Kamelot, Within Temptation, My Chemical Romance.....I'm not sure they would be under that though.

Queen and Freddie Mercury were in my top contenders. I do like metal too, though.

Metal definitely qualifies, and is one of my favorite subgenres. Metallica is a real contender, in my opinion, as was Queen. Freddie Mercury was astounding.

Not that I'd call them the best, but currently I'm heavy into Gojira.

I was just listening to Hardwired to Self-Destruct.

I guess it depends which era you're from. Overall I'd say The Rolling Stones. For me it was either Guns and Roses, Nirvana or Alice in Chains.

I’m going U2.

U2 are a rock band like Connor McGregor is a boxer. Maybe pop rock, if that's even a genre.

Early U2 is amazing, but I'm not a fan of anything after The Joshua Tree. That's when it seems like they just went for commercial success, and the incredible heart on their first albums was gone.

They just want to make music, and entertain our ears. Why the hate?

Queen, U2, Nirvana, The Eagles, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple.....

It is them, and you, who is hating the truth. All of the performers you name put on displays of wickedness. You, promoting them, show your own wickedness. If you feel hated by these statements, it's only because you are too proud to confess your wickedness.

You have declared yourself an enemy of me, a hostile, and that is personal. It is you who is being hateful towards me. I am simply stating the truth regarding the wickedness of expressions of evil and the wickedness of those who promote them.

Is not your music your idol? I won't bow to your idol.

No contest. The Eagles. I mean, there is just no comparison. They are number one in my book. Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, since music is a personal experience. In my personal experience, they are numero uno.

Not my number one, but a very good choice. What do you think their best song is? Hotel California remains my favourite.

They have so many great songs. My favorite keeps changing. Right now, it's this one.
