Greatest Bands With Four Members

Greatest bands with four members in their classic line-ups.

The Top TenXW

1The Beatles

The greatest band ever!
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were legends in music; The Beatles is one of the few bands in which all the members sang. - rock2metal

The Beatles are the greatest band to grace this planet. They set the foundation for almost everything, musically. With the most versatility of any band, and truly great music, they are just greatly awesome.

Can't be beat! Because they start make their album during they are teenager! - 09ShamsulBahriel

The Beatles are the best ever.

James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and Cliff Burton made Metallica the best metal band ever! Although there were 4 different bassists in the band, Cliff was the best. - rock2metal

I like Metallica as much as the next guy, but they do not belong at #2, WAY too high. I wouldn't consider them the best Metal band with 4 members. This is why I think Metallica is overrated - ryanrimmel

Metallica is the Best Band FROM the 80's... lol I think... too bad the Jackson 5 isn't a four member band... if they were they would of been #1 - alexanderalbert

Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor. Other great that has never changed its line-up. - rock2metal

I agree more than a hundred percent. No one can beat them. And poor John Deacon is SO underrated! Love ya Deacy!

The Greatest ever I can't believe Freddie mucury was 4th on the greatest singers! - bysonman

4Led Zeppelin

Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham formed a legendary band in hard rock and heavy metal history. Led Zeppelin is one of the few bands that have never chaged their line-up. - rock2metal

Everything about this band is great. Great lead singer, Legendary Guitar Riffs, and Bonzo on the drums was raw power. They invented Stadium Rock. - VADERtheIMPALER

ABBA has sold about 1/2 BILLION record units (only The Beatles, Elvis, and Michael Jackson have sold more than ABBA making the four of them the four highest record unit selling bands in the history of music. ABBA performed two sold out concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1977 (as part of a multiple country tour in early 1977). The tickets for these two concerts were only available by mail application and the reported number of requests amounted to 3.5 million applications, that would have filled Albert Hall 580 times. - ekos

Just a note about my comment above, if all 3.5 MILLION tickest would have been sold for ABBA's two concerts, that would have been equal to roughly TEN TIMES the size of WOODSTOCK!

Thank-you ekos. "Now we know how many folks it takes to fill the Albert Hall." - beatles

6Breaking Benjamin
7Black Sabbath
8System of a Down

The line-up of the alternative metal band is Serj Tankian, Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan. This isn't the first line-up, Andy Khachaturian was before John. - rock2metal

9Pink Floyd

There haunting music was great but the wall really showed them off

On saucer full of secrets there were 5 members. But also they guys are way better than Metallica

Pink Floyd is the 3rd best band ever, they should be in top 3 of THIS list.

The Newcomers

?Billy Talent

The Contenders

11Three Days Grace
12Rage Against the Machine

I don't know how I forgot this band, they are great in thrash! - rock2metal

16Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi has four and a "half" members, because the bassist Hugh McDonald.

Bon Jovi has the most record's that people will like the song's that they made in the past and the middle age's and that is how much I know of them sorry if you liked it xx

17The Who

Still going now. Daltrey at Manchester singing Quadrophenia in 2013, what a night.

19The Ramones

The greatest punk band, no other beats them. Their classic line-up (and their first to release an album) was Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone and Tommy Ramone. - rock2metal
