Blue Cheer should be first just like how people would say Jimi Hendrix is the best Guitarist and the best artist is The Beatles. Blue Cheer have what a band would want and what a fan of Rock would want. Blue Cheer really rock it out like The Rolling Stones, The Who, Cream, and Jimi Hendrix. Blue Cheer is on the classic rock side. Blue Cheer was straight rock and is not influence by Punk, Punk like, Metal, Roots rock. Experimental rock, and Progressive rock at first. Not that really matters. Rock is just better than those types of Rock music. Blue Cheer is very Fuzzy. Even those now Blue Cheer is influence by Metal Blue Cheer is still great and Blue Cheer is that good to change their music to that. Metal is still great. Rush have nothing on Blue Cheer. Rush is more like Aerosmith, AC/DC, Kiss, Van Halen, and Guns N Roses, than The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, The Who, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin. - BlueFuse
Dude rush is the greatest band of all time. Yeah how about of all time! When you listen rush you are changing your air instrument constantly.. Easily number 1!
There is no doubt Rush is the best band of all time. But having only 3 people? Well, that's something else.
Best band and nicest guys in the business!
They deserve every accolade they get!
Blah blah blah!

Cream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.
All due respect to the other trios in this list who are, indeed, very good, I believe Cream, for being one of the first (if not truly the first) power trios and for the influence they had on modern music and on blues rock, should be first.
Cream was the ultimate power trio! The first true super group. And number one power trio.
Sorry there are no other groups that had the best drummer better than Moon.
The best bassist Bruce and Clapton on lead. Creams live recordings are better than most other trios studio work.
