The 25 Greatest Rock Bands Of All-Time, Ranked

What are the greatest rock n roll bands of all-time? Some pop into your head right away, but making a list of 25 and not leaving out some of your favorites is near impossible. Some of these bands and their songs are near religious experiences, the impacts they have had on the world and the quality of our lives is at times immeasurable. My favorite classic rock album is Beggars Banquet by the Stones. It’s one of those albums you can take to any house party and put it on, letting it play from start to finish and nobody is going to complain. To me, a band considered to be one of the top 25 better have that in their quiver, and each of these bands featured here has it in spades.

25.Creedence Clearwater Revival


Americana is what I think of when I hear this iconic band of the 1960’s-70’s. Hits like “Down On the Corner,” and “Proud Mary” are some of their biggest hits, but “Fortunate Son” and “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” made this band iconic. Southern twangs, lazy riffs and feelings fueled by the Vietnam war make CCR one of the greatest bands to ever play a show.
