Top Ten Most Legendary Bands of All TimeElvisjackson
The Top Ten
From the first time I heard Queen back in 1975 the Queen II album I fell in love with them. Their is no singer that had the range of Freddie Mercury. Very few lead guitar players can play with the versatility of Brian May. Rodger Taylor's unique high voice along with John Deacon's great bass playing are the icing on the cake. As a hard core Queen fan Queen II is the epitome of quality vocals and instrumental genius. However in my opinion some of their most beautiful songs came on their last albums Innuendo and Made in Heaven ( These are the days of our lives and Mother Love). I grew up with the Beatles in the 60's but matured with Queen in the 70's 80's and early 90's. Close call between the two but I give the edge to Queen based on raw talent alone. God only knows what could have been had not been for the death of Freddie Mercury.
ABBA above Queen? I have to disagree. Did ABBA write a song even close to the popularity of Bohemian Rhapsody? I don't think so. Queen is the greatest to me and always will be. Together by fate and they are immortal. They are Queen.
Greatest singer of all time, Freddie Mercury. Many of the greatest songs of all time. Greatest basslines of all time. Hands down the greatest rock band of all time.
Where is Deep Purple should be on number 1V 10 Comments
I believe they should be number one, they were ahead of their time and changed the music in just ten years. They were famous all around the world. We still listen to them even after 50 years. They sell the most albums still and they began the British invasion of the 60's. Had their own company. Influence almost every bands in the world. Every famous artist does a cover of them especially MJ. They've made the best album covers of all time (Abbey road which is copied everywhere. ) All songs are a ten out of ten not one is terrible. Beatlemania man. They had to stop world touring cause they couldn't hear the music because of all the screaming fans. The Beatles did especially excellent even with old technology of the 60's. Even after they broke up, by themselves they were good. They made movies. Movies were made about them or about their music. The Beatles are THE legendary band. They couldn't go out of their hotels because of the crowds waiting for them at the bottom. They began mop top ...more
Won't say much who started it all but it all comes down to them the Beatles, their songs, music and performance everyone will know if they listened to it that's how they do it number 1 fan of them

If you ask the "younger" generation who ABBA is, they wouldn't know what the hell you were talking about! If you ask them who Led Zeppelin is, they would know.
Please Don't Call Them as The Beatles They R THE Led Zeppelin

We don't need a reason to have Floyd at the top of the list. (the only psychedelic-rock band in the list, would have loved to see porcupine tree here though.. )

Their contribution to metal genre and making it a mainstream phenomenon is unparalled.
Combined that with their story telling lyrics and progressive compositions, they have become iconic.
ABBA are the best! ABBA should be number one, because the voices of ABBA are genial.
NOBODY CAN BEAT ABBA and I can say else ABBA FOREVER!
There music is timeless! It will never die! They have a clean cut image with the greatest songs never! Number 1! - ivylee
ABBA is the best band ever! Queen, The Beatles are good, but they're better separately.
Not near the others..at least in 40V 5 Comments
Guns n' Roses wrote such songs that can never die... Such thoughts which are true forever... Such melodies which come directly from the core of heart that will surely give one "rock on". So, that's why they are immortal... They are legendary.

This band make all people rock forever.. Immortal band
