2Pink Floyd
Everyone who speaks English has heard of the Floyd

3Iron Maiden
They're the kings of metal, baby! The only ones left of their kind!

This band is sick, I listen to this almost all the time

4AC/DC
Pure power and energy...rocking for 40 years already, who else could take their place? I mean... If AC/DC isn't the best...no one would be.
Even if you have set metallica on the first place, but you all know that AC/DC is the most popular band ever. Over 50 millions Back in Black albums sold. Is not that enough?
Should be top spot no problem!

5The Rolling Stones
They are an epic band of rock and should be number 3
They are one of the best
They are the best

6KISS

7Nirvana
Band of the generation X. All time greats!

8Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin brought the revolution in hard rock and heavy metal praise the lords!
Should be number 1 without a shadow.

9Black Sabbath

10The Beatles
This list is stupid. I don't think any band could ever surpass the image of the Beatles. It just can't be done. They are just too prevalent and influential to ever really NOT be the most popular band. Regardless of musical quality, the Beatles win hands down.
It's kinda nauseating; the Beatles being so dominant in the popular music scene but they do deserve it. Easy winners here.
No band could outmatch the Beetles

The Contenders

11The Who
This list is outrageous. Only maniacs & the truly ignorant to music would have forgotten the Who. The Who should be in the Top 5, I should not have had to add them on this list of ignorance.
They are great... Wont get fooled again. But come on guys where are u2

12Guns N Roses
Awesome, awesome band should be number one.
Guns N' Roses is awesome! They're the best

Linkin park is the greatest band I've ever seen. Its really amazing.
Black eyed peas above linkin park this list seriously need to be altered
I think most people who voted don't even know much songs of linkin park

14Queen
I think Queen is most popular band. They music is perfect. And after Freddie Mercury died AIDS stayed very important theme.
I don't know why the hell Metallica and nirvana is on the top of the list. Even axl, Kurt cobain, and many vocalist admired freddie. Queen is the best band of all time with the genius Freddie mercury on vocals.. I think Metallica deserves 1st place.. My list is
Queen
Led zeppelin
The Beatles
Iron maiden
Pink Floyd
The rolling stones
Guns n roses
Ac/Dc
Nirvana

Great sounds, great music which brings out surreal and deep thinking at times. They may have been a band from the 80's but they match the sound of any modern day indie/alternative band, definitely worthy of a spot on the top 50 and definitely worth listening to!
Probably the best band of the 80s.
