"Perfect" Bands

Are there any bands where you can take out 50 songs and just listen to each one of them without ever feeling the need to change the song?

For me it's Bright Eyes.
I downloaded (don't kill me) around 20 songs from them before I ever got into them just to see what their music sounded like, and every song I find myself listening to without any need to change the song.

The Beatles have the deepest list of any band. None of their songs are that jaw-dropping, but each of their top 100 or so are fantastic, so in terms of sheer quality of output, they are the standard. That said, depth of catalog is not the only determinant. I only like 15 or so of most band's songs, but if they're good songs, then 15 is enough. Some of the best musicians ever (Hendrix, for example) only recorded a very small number of songs.

bright eyes is great, led zeppeling would definitely fall under your specs, i dont think ive ever heard a bad sublime song, so thats prolly a good route, AC/DC, i guess you don't want classics though, Panic! at the disco, theyre one of my personal favorites, probably don't have 50 songs though, Foo Fighters, would probably fit your criteria, theres probablymore, but that's what jumps out to me

For me its P.O.D, they're one of the few bands that I can listen to all their songs without needing to skip a track.

Led Zeppelin. Even though some of their song are pretty long, they're so good that you feel you have to listen to the whole thing. Most of their stuff is amazing, and I could listen to it all day. Even the Beatles, which that guy a couple spaces above me already said, are amazing and I could sit with them for a whole day too.

Yes. Excluding St. Anger and probably Garage Inc. Cause those albums suck in comparison with the rest of their albums
