First, I am now 04EscaladeAWD! We ordered a black 04 AWD with no nav. This time, we ordered a new E&G Classics mesh grill which can be found here (http://www.egclassic.com/cadgrille26.htm) . We got the molded mudguards and different exhaust tips too. Anyways...

Who are your top 10 bands of all time? My favorites gotta be Led Zeppelin.

I have to give my nod to NIN. I believe that someday history will look back and recognize Trent Reznor for what he was doing with the technology of today in terms of creating vast layers of sound and sculpting them into emotional masterpieces.

Other artists/groups on my personal top 10 would be:

Mozart. He completely changed how music was orchestrated and is undoubtedly the most influential composer ever. Much of the music today exists for what he accomplished hundreds of years ago.

The Beatles. Easy choice here. Their tracks are diverse and well performed. Ranging from pop to deep psychedelic musings, their music has something that anyone can identify with. Influential to the point that I really didn't need to write any kind of description for them.

Those are the ones that immediately spring to mind in the 'of all time' category. Maybe I'll list my other choices after I've had time to think on it a bit more...

ZZTOP is my fav. band. They are car guys just like me. Their music is not groundbreaking or something new and unheard of, but it's the perfect blend of Jazz, Blues, and Rock that helped them be succesful for over 30 yrs. Oh and it don't hurt they being from Texas and it's pretty easy to catch one of their shows down here. IMHO they are one of the best live bands around...the kind of band that fits playing in a bar or before a large crowd.

The Clash, The Beach Boys and the Velvet Underground.

NIN definatly. Trent reznor is a genious and has created almost a new genre of music. They classify it in Industrial, but it's unlike all the other industrial. He does all the work himself and is genious.

Manson also, but I don't think he will ever get the recognition for what he does and what he tries to do. He will probably always maintain the status of "freak, antichrist, bad guy" to most of the public eye.

Yup, that's the one. He's still kickin' it in Ontario I believe? I understand he is/was pretty popular down there?

I should have added ACDC, had 'em all in HS except for "74 Jailbreak." I'm not into many of the new bands myself.

I think Manson IS THE ANTICHRIST, or he wishes he was? :lildevil: I can't say I agree with you, or respect him. Don't you think from his album covers, that he wishes he was a woman? Don't take this the wrong way, I understand what artists try to portray, and we all have differing opinions.

Thought he did, I think Bryan Adems was a canuk to.
I rock to almost everything, I went to OZZFEST and Summer Sanitarium Tour. Then took my wife to a Mainhaim Steamroller concert.
I like everything from The Byrds to Manson, It's all good.
And lets not forget 'The man in black' Johnny Cash.

Now if I could get Britney Spears to dance without singing...

That's exactly what she would be doing right now if her mama hadn't gotten her that job with the mousketeers.

She'd be hanging on to a brass pole, an exotic "disco ball" overhead, and lots of $1 bills to show for it!

Ralph had me until he added George Michael. :Poke:

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the toxic twins--Aerosmith.

And this thread is about BANDS, not individual acts. Otherwise, I'd agree that Elvis and Sinatra top the list.

And since we're talking about BANDS, nobody mentioned Basie or Ellington.

How about the Eagles?

IMHO the top ten BANDS in no particular order:

3. Pink Floyd
4. The Beatles
5. Prince and the Revolution
6. Parliament Funkadelic
7. Earth Wind and Fire
8. The Rolling Stones
9. Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
10. The Cure

...with honorable nods to Fleetwood Mac, Portishead, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Rage Against the Machine, Guns and Roses, Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, Alice in Chains, and Metallica. Again in no particular order. If I could take it further to include solo artists and singing groups: The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra, The Bee Gees, Tori Amos, The Beastie Boys, Shuggie Otis, Whitney Houston... I'm just gonna stop because I could be here all night with this.

LOL!! Well, I'm not talking about that "Wake me up before you go go" CRAP, I mean George's later stuff. Besides Elvis, he has probably slept with more famous supermodels than you and I dare dream about! INCLUDING your favorite Cindy Crawford, and my beloved Natasha Henstridge!!! :worship: :worship:

I guess if we are going to credit Sinatra, who had a great voice right up until the end, we had better credit Dino, and Sammy also. :yup: :elvis2:

I'd have to say my favorite (mainstream) band WAS Metallica - when they were a metal band. Next up would be King Diamond, Anthrax and Death (yes, Death). Good stuff. I guess I'm very unique around here. :D

motorhead would be one of the greats , just based on how they influcend so many other heavy metal groups

journey was OK , i mean they came up with the whole pre packaged pop idea so that counts , have the greatest hits 2cd set at home

Hey, since we all started talking about music, i have another question:

Who was the most influential figure in music in 50s? 60s? 70s? 80s? 90s? 2000+?

Let me answer that first:

Elvis Presley
The Beatles
Difficult for me to tell
Michael Jackson awww!! :) eee-heee :D
Curt Cobaine
Britney Spears.

Now don't you laugh and snicker when I say Britne y Spears. Regardless of what you think of her, she is the one who started the trend of teen eye-candy girls dancing to synthsized beats and predictable lyrics.

I wouldn't leave Madonna out of the 80's. She was a force IMO, and still going strong. Her songs today totally seem to depend on her mood, they can be fast or very mello.

For the 1970's I would say Bob Segar (sp?) and again The Rolling Stones. I think the Stones were even more popular in the 1970's because by this time, they were known worldwide. No one could sing as good as Elvis P. He still has the best voice I can think of. I liked Britney at first, thought she was a little cutie, but now, I don't even like her music! Plus I am getting too old to even consider listening to her. :bonkers:

I bet no one knows about a band called "Piledriver?" I have an old record of theirs from about 1971, and they did an early version of "Roadhouse." I don't know if the Doors got it from them, or vise versa.

I'd put Led Zepplin as the most influential band of the 70's. I'd disagree on Britney 'Spheres' being the influence of the new millennium, but everything else I think is on the dot (although, I'd tie Rage Against The Machine & Nirvana as the most influential of the 90's).
