The 10 Best Rock Bands of All Time

Led Zeppelin IEvery music-lover has his own opinion of who the best bands ever are, and every one of these lists pisses people off. And, yes, there have been countless numbers of these lists made already, and there will be a million more. Regardless, here is my own personal, subjective opinion of the 10 best rock bands ever:


  1. Led Zeppelin
  2. The Beatles
  3. The Who
  4. The Rolling Stones
  5. Queen
  6. AC/DC
  7. Jimi Hendrix
  8. Black Sabbath
  9. Radiohead
  10. Guns n’ Roses

I’m not going to explain and defend each one of these choices, because if you know anything about rock, you should understand why I made these choices, even if you disagree. I will, however briefly explain why I have Zeppelin in the numberThe Beatles Sgt Pepper one slot. Subjectvely: because they are my favorite band, pure and simple. More objectively: because I believe that their infusing of blues and folk into some of the first real hard rock represents the pinnacle of musical innovation in the modern age. Whether they are rocking your face off with “Whole Lotta Love” or softly singing you a tale of being lost with “Going to California,” no one does it better than Zeppelin.

There were obviously a ton of runners-up who didn’t make the list, who many of you are probably outraged about, but I’m not going to list them. Tell me who should be on here if you think you know better.
