I'd take off U2 and Radiohead before them.
Great bands, but not straight rock & roll. The Clash, Deep Purple, and Nirvana have no business here.
More that he's American I would say.
Highly subjective of course, but personally I wouldn't even call them great bands.
Sabbath & Metallica are great. But they belong in a discussion of Heavy Metal. Not greatest Rock band.
I guess heavy metal could be considered a sub-genre of rock. I actually thought you were referring to U2 and Radiohead and not Black Sabbath and Metallica. I'd rate the latter higher than the former.
Yeah, that's why I clarified. Sure, there's a ton of sub-genres. At this point though Metal has sort of staked its own claim. It's not atrocious to have Sabbath up there, but they have practically nothing in common with most of that list. Just my opinion.
It's because psychologically, people know that he needs all the leeway and praise he can possibly get so awfully badly. If you talk him up you are allowed to deduct it from your yearly taxes
I said Rush, but "Greatest Rock Band" belongs to no one.
So many bands offer greatness.
Pretty much, it's so damn subjective.
Based on taste, I'd take the Doors or Jimi Hendrix Experience out of all of them.... hell, Pearl Jam has been my favorite band for 15 years, so I'd be inclined to take them over anyone else.
