    This list is too obvious in some places, and too retarded in others...

    Nirvana the fifth best band ever???
    KI$$ in at 32...

    Guess where VH rates...Or The Police...Or Bruce and E Street...THEY AIN'T THERE because Spin thinks so highly of the Ramones, Radiohead, and NWA...

    WTF???

    I reckon the researchers stand outside high street record shops & collar the kiddies comin' out with their "Hear'say" CDs....Bollocks to 'em!!

    Their was a top 100 recently published in the Guardian newspaper, VH were'nt in that either, no suprise there ..but at least Floyd made it in.

    But i suppose you only have to look at the state of the charts to see that you're not gonna get any quality in any "ultimate" top 51 or whatever.

    I guess it sums it up for me when I went to buy a new guitar amp & a third of a music shop was taken up with record decks....Fuck 'em [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] tired now.... [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    Anyone with half a brain knows Van Halen are one of the greatest rock bands the planet has ever known. You don't have to be a Van Halen fan to appreciate their musical contribution over the past 25 years. These polls are so fuckin stupid it's not worth wasting your breath. I'd love to know what the criteria is for being include on the list. I guess a bullet to the brain is a good start. Nirvana is the most overated pile of the dog crap ever.

    Hey now, Nirvana isn't a pile of dog crap. While I agree that they are overrated, and aren't one of the 'top 10 bands of all time', they did play a big role in the history of rock music, and they made some catchy/popular music. I enjoy some of their music, and appreciate their place in music history, but VH is 10 times better than them.

    That list is pure shit. My list (top 10):

    1. Beatles
    2. Led Zeppelin
    3. Van Halen
    4. Rolling Stones
    5. Pink Floyd
    6. Aerosmith
    7. Black Sabbath
    8. The Who
    9. Jimi Hendrix
    10. Eric Clapton/Cream

    What kind of list do you expect from a bunch of 3rd rate Rolling Stone wannabes? NO VH? SPIN magazine isn't worth using as toilet paper.

    Even with the lack of news of late, and public disinterest in VH in recent history, I was still a little surprised that VH didn't manage to make it SOMEWHERE on this list.

    What a crock!

    Seems like only a year ago they were making all these lists (even the ones that didn't have a poll attached for us to "rock the vote" as they say!)
