Is The Rolling Stones the greatest rock band of all time?
Classic Rock, yes in my opinion. All rock? No.
Not at all
They are definitely up there.
No, not in my totally objective opinion 😝
Impossible question, but I'd agree it's the Stones.
What's impossible about it? Ranking stuff is human nature.
Impossible only in the sense of being objective rather than picking my personal favorites. My three favorite bands would be Social Distortion, The Cars, and The Cure. I wouldn't say any of them would be the greatest of all time.
You see...it is possible. You didn't pick your favorites. Mine is The Moody Blues, but I don't put them up there with Zeppelin and The Stones either.
The Rolling Stones are a close second behind the Beatles. But as for longevity, and still kicking ass as well as turning out good music, hands down none better than the Stones.
Without a doubt!
I defer to my husband in all things music. His opinion is that they are in 3rd place after Zeppelin and KISS.
I understand Zeppelin, but Kiss??
I know. I don't get it either, but he is a huge KISS fan. Loves their music. I'm not a big fan of music in general so I've got no overall opinion of best bands. 🤷♀️
Your husband is a good man. Although I wouldn’t call Kiss one of the greatest bands, they are one of my favorites next to Rush, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. Nobody can deny the impact Kiss has had being one of the most influential bands in history.
He says the same about being influential.
I'm curious to see if The Stones pull more votes than Zeppelin. I'd say they're probably the strongest contenders...excellent at all positions and with a better front man.
