Top Ten Most Legendary Bands of All Time
The Top Ten
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
Queen... Unbelievable. Abba... Phenomenal.
They are the best simply because without them, Queen, Abba etc. Wouldn't exist.
They were Queen's inspiration.
They were pioneers... In flight, are the inventers of the Boeing legends or the Wright Brothers? The Wright Brothers... Because they were the pioneers.
The Beatles don't belong on the 7th place they always belong on the first place when it comes to music #period the other music artists can battle for the second place like led zeppelin, the rolling stones, queen etc. But the 1st absolutely belong to the Beatles only
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
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.
Queen is the best band that ever was or will be on our planet, and Freddie Mercury is the best vocalist who ever was or will be on the planet! This is the best of all rock'n'roll legends!
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
R you kidding me? Led Zeppelin only at number 11?
Jimmy Page: Greatest Guitarist EVER!
Robert Plant: Best Rock Vocalist EVER!
John Bonham: Best Drummer EVER!
John Paul Jones: One of the best Bassists EVER! (Sorry Jonesy :P)
Queen has been embellished with time, and whilst I love the Beatles and Zeppelin, there's nothing quite like listening to there 4 best albums, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here (My favorite), Animals, and the Wall. Their early work is great to listen to one off, though the difference in listening to an album vs a song is huge, each side of Dark Side plays like a single song, and Wish You Were Here has some of the best songs of their's, including Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Wish You Were Here, and Welcome to the Machine. I didn't think I was going to list nearly the entire album, but I did (Have A Cigar is a good random listen too). I'll admit animals felt long though once you hear it a few times it grows on you, especially Dogs and Pigs (The Three different ones). The wall tells a great story, and much like Dark Side, each side can feel like a single song, particularly on the first disc/record. Back to Dark Side and it's allegory for life on the A Side, and problems in life on ...more
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.. )
I hate the beegees! Inns it's surprisig to see he'd pe up here! Sure they're good but nowhere near the talent of bands Ike the Beatles, led zeppelin and pink floyd
Definitely should be number 1 It doesn't need a reason it just speaks for itself
No one has the song resume like the Stones. Easily the best band of all time.
Under one direction what the hell
As big as beatles but still kickin
Just the best
Metallica is a legendary rock band! Its music is timeless, inspiring and has the best sound. Metallica is the best heavy metal band of all time!
Metallica will be here long after we are all dead and headbanging in hell, they will probably be playing the music there too.
Its Metallica don't need to say anything else
Master of puppets should be at top 5!
Nirvana should be top 4! Super great lyrics and great song meanings
Best Grunge band ever, I loved Kurt's voice. Long live Kurt Cobain!
I just love how their voices blend together, they are amazing
This band defined a generation, they NEED to be in the top 5
An incredibly underrated band in my opinion. Some people dismiss them because of their Scandinavian origin, weird clothes and cheesy lyrics. But aside from that, ABBA is pure perfection! They've got two of the best voices I've ever heard in music, some incredible and complex harmonies and very relatable lyrics! They are not even a disco band, most of their songs are unique in style. Dancing queen, fernando, knowing me knowing you, take a chance on me, sos, eagle, the day before you came are some of the best songs I've ever heard from any band! And these are just my favourites, there are tens of others just as nice
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!
Talk about four Swedish Vikings who invaded the Anglo-Saxon and American Pop charts.
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.
Guns and Roses is the best band ever all of the member were legendary too!
This band make all people rock forever.. Immortal band
Yes I agree those members were legendary rock on
What? Is AC/DC is doing here. Suppose to be at the top 5
Are we forgetting that they have the best selling album of all times and they have the majestic THUNDERSTRUCK
For me! This is the most Rock&Roll Band in the World! Roll Off! And Rock!
Catchiest of all bands
Brilliant singers and great gituarists
There are very few people calling it overrated compared to its overall fame (the same is true for Pink Floyd)
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.
IRON MAIDEN ROCKS AND IT'S COOL!
Way better then AC/DC
To me this is the best band. And I also think that this band is much more better than The Beatles
Their first 3 Albums will go down as the prime of that generation's music, absolutely legendary!
Love 'em or hate 'em. Their massive legacy is conspicuous. A spot on the list is well deserved,
They were, they are and they will be at our hearts. They are legendary.
Green Day should be much farther up the list
Green Day Should Be At least over Linkin Park
Come on top ten they are the best band EVER!
Linkin Park above green day...good joke
They are so good better the queen
Excuse me!, in this list? , aré you kidding?
Father of punk genre...no body can beat their legacy...sheena is a punk rocker..and Ramones is punks who rocked world once upon a time and also now rocks
I love the Ramones there songs are amazing there voices are amazing there guitar is amazing they're amazing
How is it that the band that has arguably STARTED the punk rock movement ended up below one direction?
Van Halen has both amazing music and a larger than life thing going on. Legendary.
Love their lucrative style. their songs relaxes the mind...
Linkin Park above Motorhead? Clearly some kids don't know without Motorhead there would be no Linkin Park!
The bee gees are in the top ten and Iron Maiden aren't even on the list? I have officially lost all hope.
Their music is beautiful and so well known
Barry gib has the highest voice ever
The godfathers of Nu Metal.
