    Default Best Band of all time

    Title says it all. What is the best band of all time(yes I know this is a repeat thread)?

    I would say Pink Floyd, maybe Nightwish depending on the mood I'm in.

    Iron Maiden.

    Simple as that, they are THE greatest. Set the tone, style and inspiration for so much of todays rock and metal music and they are still going strong and producing amazing music. The blend of guitar melodies, riffs and solos are just the best there evil will be.

    Notable bands which are close though are; Black Sabbath and Metallica.

    INEZ: Prove it. Prove it was no dream. It's what one does, and nothing else, that shows the stuff one's made of.
    GARCIN: I died too soon. I wasn't allowed time to - to do my deeds.
    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    I don't have one favourite, but to name a few: pink floyd, motorhead, normaal, iron maiden, sonata arctica, guns 'n roses, pearl jam, tokyo dragons and the chieftains.

    There is no best. It's not like you can put a meter next to Pink Floyd and know that it's higher then some other band.

    Ser i right. My favorite is Nine Inch Nails, because his lyrics rock, and I love the disturbing beats.
