    alright...i'm tired of all the pussyfooting...this band vs that band

    no poll on this one...who is the greatest band of all time....period

    and by that, of course, i mean rock band...obviously with jazz, bluegrass, flamenco etc, we get far afield...so this will just be limited to rock...

    i'm going to give you the answer, although i welcome all thoughts...even those who disagree with me

    my choice, well, the Beatles....never be another like 'em

    honorable mention...King Crimson, the Who, Deep Purple (tie for second)

    any thoughts?

    To paraphrase The Dude, this is just, like, your opinion, man - "all time" is an absurd way to categorize music. You don't know what is going to be created in fifty years, let alone tomorrow. Or right now, in some basement in Iowa, Ireland, South Africa, whatever. A more accurate statement might be the best thus far but, again, this is just, like, your opinion, man. There's really no point to this but to stroke our egos for liking similar musics which are really just drops in the bucket of an enormous, ever changing landscape of sounds and aesthetics.

    Times of grace (Jesse leach, and Adam dutkeiwicz from killswitch engage) the vocals and music is incredible, although as far as bass goes it doesn't really stand out. If you haven't heard that band check them out.

    I'll be waiting for the #1 rock band of all time to pop up.

    When it does, I'll give it the compulsory +1.

    :D

    I'm sure no one is going to agree with me... But I'm gonna have to say The Clash. And then Skinny Puppy. ;)

    this question, of course, assumes that ANY group which you list as number 1 must have had at least 23 albums, since that is what the Beatles had

    You had it in your first post but got the numbering wrong.
    Deep Purple are #1.

    18 studio albums
    34+ live albums
    27 compilation albums.

    and the best Hard Rock you will hear in your life.

    The Zombies, viz. the band with Blunstone on vox, Argent on keys, Flint on Drums, Atkinson on gtr and Chris White on Bass. Seriously.
