Top 10 Most Popular BandsOzzyVanHalen Which band is known by just about all adults, teens, kids and all age groups?
The Top TenXW
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.
The Beatles is undeniable the most popular band ever, but yet not the best. I agree that Beatles is very, VERY influential band, and music won't be the same without them. But for the best band, I can't say because there are countless bands spread over this world even after the Beatles, and each person has different opinion about their best.
This list is about the most POPULAR bands, not the BEST bands. The Beatles have sold around half a billion albums while Metallica has only sold 110 million albums.
Seriously. I have not heard a Metallica song in forever. Beatles I own 15 albums! Why number two? People! Come on! - KissmycrannyV14 Comments

Led Zeppelin brought the revolution in hard rock and heavy metal praise the lords!

I think Queen is most popular band. They music is perfect. And after Freddie Mercury died AIDS stayed very important theme.
Right now Linkin Park is the most popular band m/ despite that I'm a LP fan I admit that the other bands here are much more better but my musical taste is linkin park and I love em m/
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
Linkin Park should be on number 1V17 Comments
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?
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.
Should be top spot no problem!
