    Ah awesome question. It's subjective because I don't know about EVERY band, and I definitely know more about some bands than others. But off the top of my head:

    1 The Beatles

    2 The Jimi Hendrix Experience

    3 The Beach Boys

    4 Led Zeppelin

    5 The Velvet Underground

    6 Black Sabbath

    7 Pink Floyd

    8 The Rolling Stones

    9 Radiohead


    Really curious to see what other people write. Dylan would be very high on the list but you said bands.
