For the impact that they had in the time that they did it, I don't think that anyone will ever be able to knock The Beatles off the top. Perhaps The Doors would be a distant second, but the real qualification is does said band stand the test of time where they are widely remembered twenty/thirty years after they break up. I can't say that I see any of today's current 'hip' bands being remembered as anything other then an obscure footnote in music history. IMHO, nothing truely original has been done in quite sometime.

In terms of influence, I know metal isn't "hip" or whatever, but;

- What about early Slayer, Mayhem, Venom, Celtic Frost, and Bathory? Many of these bands formed in the late 70's/early 80's and have helped pave the way for Death Metal, Black Metal, Grind, Thrash etc;

And in terms of originality; have you heard bands like Agaloch, ...And Oceans, Axis of Perdition, Aborym? You probably think most metal sounds the same, but it's the most evolving (and arguably, devolving) genres of music around today.

And what about Classical music? There are myriads of contemporary composers who are creating new soundscapes that the well-known mainstream composers of the past never dreamt of! (And with that change so do the musicians, for example the violoist Yuri Bashmet and his work with Schnittke)

If you look at hip/trendy/MTV music it's never going to change, it's watered down dribble of genres that are defined and purposeful - that's easy to swallow and quick to buy

The title of the thread mentions bands and so as I did not consider solo artists or composers to be 'bands'.

Many of the metal bands that you mentioned, I do lump into the description that you mentioned above. Bands like Metalica have gained some esteem as a major band, but the way has been paved for them by other more more influencial bands like Black Sabbath. This is what I mean when I say that originality has hit a wall in any sort of popular acceptance. Sure there are original bands out there, but very few gain any sort of significant following thus allowing them to be seen as major bands in music history.

I am viewing the question posed not as what is everyone's favorite band, but rather as what is the most significant band that will be remembered in music history. To be fair, 95% of the bands I believe are worth while will not be remembered as anything other then a foot note 20/30 years from now.

Sorry, but the "mainstream" is never going to really remember bands named "slayer", "mayhem", or "venom"....not that that really means anything though, because the current state of our mainstream is...just really shallow and glossed over #...the reason I think that the music from the 60's era is better than any other music (jmo) is because

1. All of the young people of that time were united and had a cause...just loving everyone, and not supporting the war. When musicians are in this type of environment, and have political messages in the music and all around them, the music is going to be a lot more passionate I think...when the people join together for a purpose in mind, the work that they will turn out has a much larger potential.

Reason number two would probably be psychedelic drugs...the widespread use again helped unite the people of the time...and I don't want to bring up an issue on drugs, but psychedelic drugs do help creativity, regardless of whatever else you may think...look at any band/musician in the 60s, and then research them and find out the time when they really started using lots of acid, and meditating, exploring higher states of consciousness...usually this is the time period where the creativity and quality of music peaked for these groups. Some of the improvisations played by Hendrix while under the influence and playing live are just amazing...no matter what your stance on the subject is, drugs play a huge part in music, and during the 60's, helped fortify a bond between musicians, and those who listened to their music...I'm not really sure if they do right now though or what, I guess depends on the type of music.

Pink Floyd!
In particular, every album from the Roger Waters period. Dark Side of the Moon -> The Final Cut. Some stuff from before that is good as well, but not much at all is good in the David Gilmour period. He's a fantastic guitarist and not a particularly good writer.

I also love Roger Waters' solo work.

The rest (not in any particular order):

Mojave 3
Red House Painters
Neutral Milk Hotel
The Beatles
The Who
Eric Clapton
Nina Persson
Tom Lehrer
Bob Dylan
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Belle & Sebastian

And probably more.
