Okay, to elaborate my first vote: The beatles reinvented the music industry, they were the most popular band in the sixties, and without this rap garbage, they would still be pretty high on the mountain. Women wanted them, men wanted to be them... They made music today possible.

QUEEN!!! Dont like anyone else on there......I would vote for Bon Jovi, but as you can see it ain't on there (unfortunatly) Bon Jovi is AWESOME his 80's Glam Metal rocks!  Don't think I like him just cus I played Livin' On A Prayer In Guitar Hero I listen to almost all his songs.  Someday I'll Be Saturday Night, You Give Love A Bad Name, Keep The Faith(BEST EVER), and all sorts of others.  I know Most of this post is about Bon Jovi Even though Its supposed to be about Queen HAHA!!!

Still no votes for Golden Earring?! Do any of you guys know the band, or am I mistaken in thinking they had a world wide fame in the late 70's and the 80's?! Can't seem to figure that out somehow... anyone want to proove me right that they were known somewhere else than the Netherlands? =P

Yeah, I've heard of them. Radar Love and twilight Zone are both pretty good songs. The issue is that they aren't even in the same league of popularity as the other four bands.

1st vote: Queen
2nd vote: The Beatles

Queen. Literally. Influenced. Everyone. If you check through a list of all of your favorite bands of every genre, at least half list queen as an influence. Songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions" have endured the test of time, and always will.

The Beatles for basically the same reason. Without them, Guitar is history. What is Rock without guitar? What is drums without guitar? What is Bass without guitar? What is... MUSIC... WITHOUT GUITAR? Scary thought...

I'm not the biggest fan of the Beatles MUSIC though, it's still good by the way. I've always found The 'Stones overrated (FLAME SHIELD ACTIVATED), and have never been familiar with CCR, The Doors, or Golden Earring.

I know and respect Jimi's legacy AND Guitar Mastery (I talk too much about guitar for a drummer^.^), but I could never really get in to his music though. Foxey lady is good though, and it being in one of the funniest scenes in Wayne's World doesn't hurt eather.

Overall, Queen wins this round.

@ Bonjovimen : I love your enthusiasm! Thanx for voting and... I'll give you a small hint... keep checking in, because Bon Jovi will be featuring in this year's edition further on! And so will Rush and Journey! ;)

@ delossantosj : always the drummer that gets aroused in you whenever a discussion starts, hey? LOL Always nice to see your drive opposing the 'guitar lovers'! ;)

The competition is still on between two bands! Who will make it on top?! Will it be Queen, or wll it be the Beatles in the end? =O

Another roundup of votes show Queen taking over again! =D

Mrdaycee I was trying to get the point across that, even Though I'm a Drummer and LOVE drums (TRAVIS BARKER IS ********* OVERRATED!!!11!!.... sorry...) Where would music be without guitar? none of our favorite bands would be here. Just Clearin' things up.
