Post your top 5 rock bands of all time

I'm interested in seeing what era most people's favorites come from and if there are more US bands or UK bands (or Scandinavian if you're Reaper16)

Clean sweep for the Brits for me.

1. The Beatles
2. Rolling Stones
3. Led Zep
4. Pink Floyd
5. The Who

Define band however you want. If you want to throw Elvis on your list, do it.

I hate to bump an old thread but I wanted to update my situation and let people know what I did.

I got a Harman Lexicon Alpha DAW for Christmas. It was a gift but I found them on Amazon for about $50, so I'm sure that's where she got it. It came with Steinberg CuBase LE 5 (mixing and recording software).

I downloaded some free amp sims and cabinet impulses and I'm SUPER impressed so far.

In fact, I'm using CuBase with an Orange amp head and Celstion 4x12 cabinet as my PRACTICE AMP to just sit here and play.

First off the designs don't allow for a large output transformer or large tubes. Outside of an AC30 (Matchless, Bruno - all AC30 clones), EL84 based amps sound like shit. It's just impossible to make a 5 watt transformer sound like a 100 watt transformer.

Personally, I think they're a waste of money. There are far more elegant solutions to miking up a cab, including sound proofing and treating a closet, isolation cabinets like those offered by James Demeter, Randall, Silent Sister, etc., THD hotplate or just running a 100 watt head straight to a cabinet for a load with the master volume set to zero, then sending the effects loop signal directly to a DAW for use with cabinet sims in Guitar Rig, ReCabinet, Red Wirez.

They're a marketing gimmick.

one of these things is not like the others!

Healy was simply BAD ASS! RIP

See The Light would be on my "stuck on an island list of songs", possibly my favorite song EVER. it just tears it up.

Necro bump again.

I traded some of my gear that I never use anymore for a Zoom C5.1t ASIO unit.

It's basically the same as the Lexicon Alpha but also includes 5 programmable foot switches and a programmable expression pedal.

So now I not only have the ability to sim amps and cabinets, I can sim stomp boxes and pedal effects too.

So awesome.

Music connects with the listener on a very deep level, something that goes beyond description. If Ratt or MC5's or Eric B. & Rakim is what makes you happy, that's great! It's not for me to judge anyone's musical taste and interest.
I think i may have a new found level of respect for Mr. DaneMcCloud. Never thought i would say that.

Glad you like em. Bands like TBR and the Lillingtons are true pop punk because they stick to the ramones formula of making simple catchy songs.
