    Mega Rock Bands

    OK....going to put a poll up of some MEGA rock bands. Multiple choices allowed. Pick your FAVES and ONLY your faves.

    Nothing but the BIG names up here. If I didn't put your favorite mega rock band, sorry, only 10 allowed (I said that so Michigander doesn't get mad when I don't include AC/DC).

    Just curious who the best of the MEGA big rock bands are according to Foo.

    Not my taste either...but they are one of the BIGGEST rock bands, so I felt compelled to include them.

    Tell me a woman/female band in that category?

    The only band I can think to come close would be Heart (who's one of my all-time favorite bands by the way). As much as I love Heart, they aren't in the category of these bands.

    Oh wait...you meant thaaaaat kind of "the eye".

    How YOU doin'?

    I know, after I wrote that thought about who. I don't know if Heart or Pat Benetaur would be a mega band.

    Metallica's the only one that's not 'classic hits standard fare' so by that criterion Heart and Pat Benatar should be eligible.

    It's sad to see Aerosmith in the same category as the Stones when they are such wannabes. I guess they wannabe'd StonesXZep, and now there they are immortalized at the same status according to BF... it must be true, I read it on the interwebs!

    I disagree....they may not be old enough to be in 'classic rock', but they have a following and icon status FAR superior to Heart and Pat Benetar. I never claimed it was a 'classic rock' band list, just a 'mega rock' band list.

    Thought about them, but didn't really think they were a 'rock' band.

    FIne by me...I think they suck anyway. I only put them in there because I hear them still referenced a LOT to this day as big bands, still popular with many, listed as influence (yuck!), etc...

    But they should have been the band I cut and put U2 in there instead.

    Queen should definitely be on the list.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Plus 1. Besides, what is "Mega." Actually, i like many lesser known bands. Such as Cowboy Junkies, Collective Soul, Train, Bare Naked Lady, etc.Why does mega always have to be mega important . Lots of aspiring talent needs to be given a chance over what's big on the charts.
