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.


Back in Black is among my favorites, but my personal favorite is Hell's Bells. Dunno, just like it a lot.

AC/DC pretty much made me love how the guitar sounds!

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.


True, but they still sound good. I've really tried to appreciate guitarists with more variety, such as Hendrix or Page, but I still find it hard to enjoy such experimental music... at least for me. They're awesome technically and creatively, no doubt, but I still prefer the simplistic Angus Young's guitar playing over Hendrix or Page.

The first albums of vintage music I ever heard were from AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. To date, I still hear way more AC/DC.
THANX IN ADVANCE!!!

Hmm...Tough One

1. Guns N' Roses-Old and New...i don't care if they have a different sound or different members, bands change. Axl has always been GnR to me, and while it's obviously different without Slash, Duff, and Izzy (**** Matt Sorum) but it's about how the music sounds...and i thought the new album sounded good. Sweet Child O' Mine, Breakdown, November Rain, Rocket Queen...they all still get me

2. Ozzy Osbourne-Only from Blizzard to No More Tears, everything after was kinda blah...Randy obviously created some of the most memorable sounds of...well...forever. And when Jake E. Lee came in, he carried the torch in an amazing way. Bark At The Moon was dope man...But Zakk's stuff...eh...Should have kept Jake in my opinion.

3. Megadeth-while not as sucsessful as Metallica, I think Dave's writing and playing far surpassed his former band. Hanger 18, Symphony, A Tout Le Monde, Peace Sells...so many great songs it's hard to even know where to start. Marty Freidman was an awesome guitarist, and him and Mustaine kicked SOOO much ass...and I don't care what anyone say, Youthanasia is up there with Peace Sells... and Killing is my Business

4. Savatage-Yeah, you've probably only heard of them as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but "Streets: A Rock Opera" is probably one of the greatest albums ever. While the early stuff may not have been so amazing, their "concept album stage" produced three of the best ever. Gutter ballet, When The Crowds are Gone, If I Go Away, Hall Of The Mountain King, Believe, Edge Of Thorns, All That I Bleed...just so man amazing songs! R.I.P. Criss Oliva

5. Van Halen-NOT VAN HAGAR! "Van Halen 1" was a monster of an album, but with classics like Women And Children First, Van Halen II, Diver Down...basically anything with Roth on Vox was amazing. Eruption cemented Van Halen as a guitar god, Jump made rock even more mainstream, Mean Streets set a lurking mood...Just so amazing!

There are only a few bands i know that come close to that...Dream Theater, Rush, W.A.S.P., AC/DC, Aerosmith and Pink Floyd are up there...but those are the definite top 5

I love Ac/Dc and Back in black, but my favorite song by AC/DC would be For Those About to Rock (We Saute you).

1. Ac/Dc-They are the reason I love rock.
2. Disturbed-Reason I like Metal and Nu Metal
3. Offsrping- I love almost all of their song.
4. Spin Doctors- They have meaning and some of their songs are funny.
5. The Who- Greatest Band ever british rock xD

Eh, I'll bite.

1. Agalloch - No one can create an atmosphere quite like Agalloch. Indescribably amazing.

2. Opeth - Not much to say about Opeth that hasn't already been said. They just do a lot of things extraordinarily well.

3. Blind Guardian - One of metal's greatest vocalists (if not i]the greatest).

4. Nile - I have a weird thing for anything Egyptology related, and Nile is nothing but ancient Egyptian themes and death metal, so Nile's always been a no-brainer for me.

5. White Stripes - Kind of out of place amongst my other 4, but Jack White has a way of taking something very simple and making it wonderful.
#175
1. Opeth - Need I say more
2. Pink Floyd - See above
3. Porcupine Tree - Love Steven Wilson's production and arrangments
4. Bloodbath - One of the few DM bands I've heard that you can actually understand the lyrics, great musicianship, legendary band members
5. John Williams - not a band, I know, but the man has made some of the greatest movie scores of all time

LOL. You seem to say that as if I've never heard of those bands. For the record Soundgarden is up there in my top but not top 5. I'm a huge alternative fan which includes grunge if you don't know.
