What do you think is the best band ever (past 60 years)(NOT favorite)?

I know, I know this has been done, but in every thread I checked people were throwing in their FAVORITE band, not who they believe is the BEST.

When I say 'best', what I mean is... the impact they had on the world, how well each member works with the others, songwriting and technique...

I'm sure that obviously The Beatles is pretty high up, as would be possibly The Jimi Hendrix Experience? Oh, And definitely U2.

I mean... My favorite band is the Foo Fighters, but they definitely are not the best band. So... Try to keep favorites out of this.

The beatles... to write so many number ones, they are also one of my favourites as well
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

my favourite band are manic street preachers. their lyrical themes are strong. based mostly on love or political. they have a few recognisable songs, 'design for life', 'if you tolerate this' and 'motorcycle emptiness'.

i'd vote them for the 90s.

Queen by so far its not funny... Led Zeppelin is a distant distant second.
I play bass

Pink Floyd. Obviously not the best with band members working with each other, but I think that tension produced some of the greatest records ever made.

i think the band for having the biggest impact on music would have to be Metallica.
but my favorite (and i think best) band is As I Lay Dying.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Hang on. Why is it best band EVER and also best band in the last 60 years? Ever means forever doesn't it?
#34
Rubbish thread.

Why would I say the Beatles or Oasis when I don't like their music? They can't be the best in my eyes.

There is no such thing.

I don't care what anyone says. There is not one singular band that is better than the next. It's all subjective.

The only reason they would be influential to tons of people is because they are favored by many people, and more out in the open because of their fame.

You don't see TONS of people citing My Bloody Valentine as a major influence often because they weren't popular, same goes for the Melvins, and the MC5.

So any discussion as to "best" is just irrelevant, IMO.
