Doug: Wow. So many great ones to choose from here. I think we should consider the entire gamut of a band's personna -- music, lyrics, personalities, longevity, influence, and as perhaps a tie-breaker you can go with where a particular band scores on your personal love-o-meter.
Doug: How about the obvious choices? The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. But what of Led Zeppelin? The Jimi Hendrix Experience? Black Sabbath? Van Halen? The Doors? Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young? The Beach Boys? Journey? Rush? AC/DC? The Bee Gees? Chicago? The Who? U2?
