    I believe you are asking for rock bands, so I can't say the Beatles because they were not a rock band but a pop/rock band. So now I'll give you my ten.

    The Rolling Stones

    The Who

    The Kinks

    Jimi Hendrix Experience

    Black Sabbath

    Led Zeppelin

    Pink Floyd

    Creedence Cleawater Revival

    Deep Purple

    Cream

    BQ: Rolling Stones

    BQ2: not bad

    BQ3: ok

    BQ4. ok

    BQ5 don't have one.

    take care
