My first vote is Whitesnake because they have a lot of great songs like Is This Love Fool Fof Your Loving and of course Here I Go Again.Second I have U2 will be shocked if they dont move on they have With or Without You and Sunday Bloody Sunday and much more.

Ok, these aren't some of my favorite bands, so...

1: Def Leppard
Like I said, these aren't the bands i'm most familiar with. I vote for them because they have the best songs from what I know of these groups, and the have a FRICKING ONE ARMED DRUMMER (who could probably do more than I can on drums with ONE LESS ARM). Amazing.

2. Between Bad Company and Whitesnake, I have to go with Bad Company. They aren't exactly my favorite band on record (save "Shining Star"), but they write GREAT songs that have proven to cover quite nicely (5FDP "Bad Company" FTW!).

3. U2 IS OVERRATED!!!!! not terrible, but FRICKING OVERRATED!!!!!

im going to have to disagree with you MAJORILY on this one. please give me your reasoning. you dont seem to understand the level that they were on. have you SEEEN  a U2 show? U2 has not only influenced rock and music, but the WORLD.

I always hear the name U2, but seriously their songs aren't the best I've heard. There are many better bands then them, and I don't see why they get to tour the world in expensive tours and not others. And no, they surely haven't influenced me ;)

I'm not saying they're bad, please don't get me wrong. They surely must be very good to be so successful. But you all sound like they are music gods, and sorry to say, but they are not.

@ nemo12 : imamnotironman is right, you have another vote to give, worth 1 point, so if you could state it, I can count it for the score roundup! =)

@ chitown : I'll count your votes, but your reasoning is borderline accepted... it's really thin to only pick bands because they make great songs... even though it's understandable, it's very thinly reasoned. Please elaborate the second time around when voting for another group, ok? Thanx! ;)

@ imamnotironman : I update the scores every now and then, but not every day or after every vote stated... I've been in trouble with the mods over this before, but -on the bright side of it- it did get the thread stickied back then! Thanx to Asherlee! =)

Allright, here we go!

well thats your personal opinion of them, but to call them overrated is much. cause there is a difference. the stuff that they did in the 80's solidified them in history, like playing the roof of that store in Vegas. which is epic if you watch it. the preach for world peace and truly have used EVERY BIT of there power to try and make it happen.
