1st Pick - Queen I have to choose Queen because of their songs 'We Will Rock You!', 'We Are the Champions'.

2nd Pick - The Beatles The Beatles are second because I don't like how they sing, but the songs are the best ever and I listen to them once in a while

I go for Beatles as my first pick. They're the most popular . . . so what? They're the most influential and the most varied (even moreso than Queen) and one of the main driving forces behind originality and the establishment of ALL of rock - it started in the 50s and then it blew up.

Second pick . . . Doors. They had a really neat, off-the-wall style with Morrison's fantastic voice and all of the keyboard layers and everything - definitely an oddball.

My first pick is Queen, I really like their songs and they have inspired so many other musicians as well.

For second I would have to go for the Doors. I like their style and a lot of their songs.

Alright, a new battle!

My first vote goes to Aerosmith. Steven Tyler is one of my favorite rock singers, and Joe Perry a very good guitarist. I love their songs like "Eat the Rich", "Draw the Line", and "Toys in the Attic". Overall, a great band.
My second vote is a bit harder to decide, but I'm going with Guns N' Roses. The sound of this groups songs I like better than those of the other bands left to choose from in this pool. Slash is an amazing guitarist, and Axl has a very distinct voice from really any other Rock singer (though he is a headcase).
