Which band inspired you to rock?

Which band inspired you to rock scociety and work your little fingers to the bone?!
The first band that really got me into rock was Van Halen. First song I heard was "Unchained" and it blew me away. I was then obssesed with VH for like 2 years. Now I listen to diff. things like classic rock, shred, and progressive mainly.

well, it was a combination of bands. first there was in flames, then came pink floyd, led zeppelin, and disturbed. i remember listening to down with the sickness thinking, "wow, i want a guitar." then i heard the quiet place by in flames a bit later and im like "ok, im going to start to play guitar." led and pink floyd just helped it along the way.

i used to play piano but never really liked it and even then wanted to play guitar, my mom was always saying if you learn piano guitar will be easier but i think she just wanted me to keep playing piano but eventually i asked her seriously if i could have one she said she'd look into it and a couple of weeks later after going to the movies i came my and my dad had bought me an acoustic
