1st pick is GNR, They have some of the most memorable songs ever (Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child of Mine) and songs you can just plain ol' bang your head to (Paradise City is pretty much an anthem of THIS generation for some reason :D)

Slash & Duff McCagen (probably spelled his last name wrong... srry Duff) Were some of the best in their game, while Axl was a great rock vocalist (Although he's a ... you get the point.).
My favorite classic rock band.

Second is Ozzy. I really don't understand what made Black Sabbath so great, but Ozzy's music is just better in every way. From fast paced classics like Crazy Train and Bark at the Moon, or any of his other various hits I can't think of right now, he's a legend. Also, unlike GNR, he's still relevent today. Scream Like You Mean It is an EPIC song.

There was so many good ones in this category; it was hard to choose. Aerosmith and AC/DC are my runners up.

BTW Mrdaycee, can you give them some credit and have Foreigner SOMEWHERE in this competition? It's too early to beg, but I just wanna make sure you don't forget how awesome these guys are.

Haha, yeah sorry but Rose Tattoo doesn't deserve to share a box with the musicians, even The Kool-Aid Man.

Another classic band that has a great rocker(forgot his name)

Perhaps you mean Bon Scott, their long-late lead singer? Or maybe their guitarist, Angus Young. Or maybe their current lead singer, Brian Johnson? They were a good band, but not who I have picked to go past the round.

My First vote Goes to Ozzy. Simply put: he is the prince of bloody F@$kin darkness! He exemplifies the metal culture and is an absolute icon to the metal world, also, he was one of the founders of Heavy Metal. Ozzy is the man.

Second goes to AC/DC. They are an all around good band who are very popular and good at what they do. They have that very unique sound that separates them from all of the other bands in that group. A ton of AC/DC's songs are used in stadiums and what not, which is a mark of their popularity

MrDayCee is bringing out some great bands! He makes it so difficult to choose.

Well then. My first vote will go to MotorHead since I generally love all their music and how their lead singer sings and how they all play their instruments so very nicely. Motorhead - The Game.
That's my favorite song from them.

The second vote is tough. I wish I could vote for AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Guns 'n Roses and Aerosmith, but sadly; I cannot.
So I must choose Ozzy Osbourne for basically influencing music and many things he has made with Black Sabbath. Just a wonderful singer.
