Since it's hard for me decide I just looked on last.fm to see who I listened to most and the first one is the only one I'm absolutley sure of It's place.

1. The Stones - Keith and Ron's playing is phenomenal no one else can do the stuff they do, Mick is just a great singer, Charlie is a great drummer, Bobby is the single greatest rock sax player ever, live is freaking incredible, and the greatest run of albums ever is England's Newest Hitmakers to A Bigger Bang, yes I liked Satanic Majesties and everything post-Exile.

2. AC/DC - Love the energy, and Angus is good, not great but he's a good guitarist.

3. Led Zeppelin - So diverse, and every album was just great. Jimmy was my first inspiration. Rock and Roll is the greatest 12-bar of all time.

4. Beatles - Great band. John is my favorite, then Paul, then George, then Ringo. The White Album is amazing and they're all great musicians. They were hit and miss for me up until Eleanor Rigby at which point they became a really great band.

5. The Who - The greatest tanlent pool of any band ever. Roger is an great singer up until Tommy then he became incredible. Pete is a pretty freaking great guitarist and a good singer. John was an incredible bassist and wasn't half bad at singing. And finally Keith. Keith is the single greatest drummer in the history of the world. Only John Bonham and Ginger Baker come close.

Honorable Mentions
Robert Johnson - The greatest acoustic guitarist ever, and he had so much soul.
Jimi Hendrix - The greatest electric guitarist ever and tied with Robert for best guitarist.
Bob Dylan - He's the greatest poet of the 20th century.
SRV - Inspirational guitar work.
Clapton - One of the coolest guitarists ever it's hard to pin down my favorite band of his, but I would have to say Cream.
The Ramones - I mostly play blues, but when I'm pissed there's nothing better to play than a little Ramones. It's hard decide who I like best though Ramones, Sex Pistols or The Stooges. Finally Rock & Roll Radio was the first full song I learned, even though I still can't get that mini guitar solo right before the chorus at full speed. You know that Chuck Berry lick five times.

Edit: I'm proud to be the first person here with The Stones as their favorite band

In the 22nd century, how many guitarists is needed to replace a light source?

Five. One to actually do it, and four to reminisce about how much better the old tubes were.

I totally respect you for your love for AC/DC, they do hard rock so good because they're focused on it.
Back in Black, IMO, is one of the greatest songs ever.

I find it amusing that you bashed Nickelback earlier, than proceeded to fellate AC/DC in this post.

AC/DC is pretty much Nickelback for old people and teens who want to be "anti-mainstream".

...no, no they're totally different.

AC/DC is pure Hard Rock with huge influences from early Rock and Roll and Blues Rock, like Chuck Berry or Little Richard.

Nickelback is more Alternative and Pop than Hard Rock.
I think they're the younger Bon Jovi.

And I think AC/DC re caught the mainstream with their new album selling like stock.

I was basing my point more on the fact that they both rely on formulaic songs which they continue to rehash with each new album.
#151
1. Radiohead (actually as good as people say they are)
2. The Drones (raw and for lack of a better word "epic" Australian swamp rock) nothing like ACDC so get that idea out of your head
3. Neil Young (my favourite classic rock artist by a long shot the man is a genius)
4. Ween (extremely versatile band can do many genres and half the time you are left guessing if they are serious or just taking the piss)
5. Bruce Springsteen (anything that comes out of this mans mouth sounds convincing)

Radiohead was amazing at the grammys, I was shocked

The good ones don't.

An argument could be made along the lines of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", that bands don't necessarily need to change their sound to be considered good; the problem being that like Nickelback, AC/DC never made anything that wasn't "broke" in the first place.

That's true, I love diverse bands.
IMO, I think the best musicians tackle different types of music, different sounds, and different genres and creates their own interpretation of it.
They "explore" as musicologists, and fine examples are Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, and Miles Davis of course.

But I don't think it's always true that it never works.
AC/DC made tons of albums that sound almost exactly the same, but they nail at what they do.
I don't think they're stuff is "broke" at all, it's good ol' solid hard rocking blues.
They never explore, but that's good because their original form is so attractive, musically.

If Angus Young had my personality, I'd be playing something that's not aggressive because I get bored with stuff pretty easily, but he's a patient Aussie.
