Watching some badass classic concerts on youtube, I wondered who most of us consider the greatest band ever.

The most nominations will be thrown in the poll later this week.

What I was looking for here, obviously well rounded musicianship, chemistry between the members, epic jams... most entertaining shows all around.

Everyone gets two nominations, feel free to post videos to back your claim.

Mine are going to be cheesy,

I'll include any band I feel is an honorable mention, wether I like the music or not.

That's not how it works, twat.

Led Zeppelin
Good musicians with great chemistry. They experimented a lot and always had something new to offer all while maintaining their drive.

The Beatles
They changed the music industry, they playing was very tight and well arranged. Never really settled into a pattern and were amazing songwriters.

They're a badass band.


I made your choice for you. Picked Phish and Dire straits over Kansas, figured they're more likely to get votes.

I love the way you're arranging this poll TS. 'Greatest band ever (that I like) in the eyes of UG'.
