Most of the people who say this can't even name 5 AC/DC songs which sound similar.
This Is True. If it isn't broken don't fix it. While it is true, that doesn't mean it's bad

This one is correct.
3 Led Zeppelin - "They ripped off so many songs"
Led Zeppelin was an English hard rock band formed in London in 1968 as the New Yardbirds. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums) and was very much the child of Jimmy Page who even financed their first tour. He had tasted some previous success with The [original] Yardbirds and was friendly with some big names in rock. Page states it was Keith Moon of The Who that claimed the band could only go down, like a lead balloon -- thus prompting the iconic name of Led Zeppelin. The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors ...read more.

If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'. - John Lennon
To us, he was a magician making music that was exotic, yet normal, at the same time. We learnt so many things from him which led us into a dream world of rock 'n' roll music, about chuck Berry - Paul McCartney
No. But they were instrumental (no pun intended) in it's development. As to Chuck Berry, rock is NOT interchangeable with rock 'n' roll, which is an offshoot of blues. And Chuck invented neither.
I like the Beatles but they didn't create it. The people who say this should tell Chuck Berry
5 Bob Dylan - "His singing is crap. But his song writing is amazing"
Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, author, and artist who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.
Yah...I hold my hands up and admit that I have said this. I DO like Dylan; his songwriting IS amazing BUT his voice...he sounds like an inebriated something slurring to a dog peeing against a tree. It's like having a fantastically written novel being read out loud by someone who is illiterate; it dilutes the genius.
Not in his early career, but in the 80's his voice was terrible. Especially on Empire Burlesque.
He sounds like Lou Reed but a bit older and trying harder.
6 The Rolling Stones - "They were only good in the 60's and early 70's"
The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums).
Their best works include songs like Paint it Black, Sympathy for the Devil, Satisfication (Which ranked no. 2 in The Rolling Stones Magazine’s best songs of all time list).
The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. In 2012, the band celebrated its 50th anniversary.
Still around and still making great music. Their current song Living in a Ghost Town has the ability to sound both current and yesteryear. How many bands are able to do that.
I agree with this one. But their last album was amazing.
7 Tame Impala - "They're like a mixture of Beatles and Pink Floyd"
Tame Impala is an Australian psychedelic rock band founded by Kevin Parker in 2007. The group began as a home recording project for Parker, who writes, records, performs, and produces the music.
8 Freddie Mercury - "The greatest singer of all time"
Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been in 3 other bands (Ibex, Sour Milk Sea, and The Hectics). He died on November 24, 1991 from bronchopneumonia as a result from HIV/AIDS
Except for Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Frank Sinatra, and at least a dozen classical singers, from Pavarotti to Bocelli.
He's one of them. But what I love about Queen the most is Brian May.
"Greatest singer of all time"? Who said that, Freddie Mercury?
9 Chuck Berry - "The real king of Rock n Roll"
Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. He died on 18 March 2017.
This is really arguable. He and a few other mentionables were largely responsible for the popularization of rock 'n' roll, but the "king" title is wholly symbolic, and representative neither of talent nor uniqueness nor of true pioneer status.
I agree with this one.
10 Steppenwolf - "They made the first heavy metal song"
Steppenwolf is a Canadian-American rock group that was prominent from 1968 to 1972. The group was formed in late 1961 in Toronto by vocalist John Kay, keyboardist Goldy McJohn, and drummer Jerry Edmonton.

A former member, Andy Nicholson (also a bassist and backing vocalist) left the band shortly after the release of the band's debut album and before Nick took his position to patch the line-up. ...read more.
No one seems to care about their music or other band members. Everyone is in love with their lead singer Alex Turner and if you go to their YouTube comment section you will most likely see a bunch of comments about Alex, it's like other band members don't even exist. AM is not Alex Music, believe it or not it actually stands for Arctic Monkeys (plural).
12 Metallica - "They sold out"
13 Megadeth - "Megadeth is better than Metallica"
14 Radiohead - "Great music, but a pretentious fanbase"
