OPINION: The Top 5 Rock and Roll Bands of All Time

By Felicia Cranston

I know this is a daunting task, and I am fully prepared to have people disagree with me. I tried to take any bias out of this, so without any more wasting of time, here it is.

1. The Beatles - Really about the only number most should be able to agree on. They inspired countless bands in the future and were pioneers when they became big. After they broke up, they all went on to have solid solo careers as well.

2. The Rolling Stones - This band has stayed together forever, and have also put out a bluesy taste of Rock and Roll. The past few years have been a little shaky, but they are sill solid. Songs like "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" have lived on as classics.

3. The Who - Part of being a great band is presentation, and no-one did it better at the time than The Who. Also, their 9/11 appearance easily stole the show and gave people some idea that The Who still had it.

4. Led Zeppelin - Ushered in the post-Beatles era by dominating headlines with a great collection of songs. They played a ton of advanced songs during that time, and even took themed music to a new level.

5. U2 - Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the band. That should not keep them from being this high on the list though. The group personified the 1980s, led by Bono. They ushered in the post-punk era.

There are the first five. Look for 6-10 to come.

There's nothing like some good music blasting in your car. You'd be surprised to see the deals out there on dvd car audio these days. Head over to to learn more.
