      Following are the top ten influential rock bands of all time:

    1. The Beatles

    Essential Album: Revolver

    With record sales estimated at more than a billion worldwide, no other band had a greater influence on the course of rock music.

    2. Pink Floyd

    Essential Album: Wish You Were Here

    At the vanguard of the Progressive Rock movement, they have sold more than 200-million albums since 1967. One of the first bands to use light shows and fireworks in their live performances.

    3. The Who

    Essential Album: Who's Next

    One of the first, most successful, and longest lasting power trios, The Who were innovative both musically and technically.

    4. Rolling Stones

    Essential Album: Sticky Fingers

    The original "bad boys" of rock, the Stones are among the most durable bands, recording and touring with few breaks since they began in 1961.

    5. Led Zeppelin

    Essential Album: Led Zeppelin IV

    Their "Stairway To Heaven" is believed to have received more radio airplay than any other song in history, even though it was never released as a single.

    Another of rock's longest-lasting acts, their 1976 greatest hits album is the biggest selling album of all time.

    7. Grateful Dead

    One of San Francisco's first "flower power" bands, their fan following is nearly as strong today as it was when the group disbanded in 1995.

    8. Jefferson Airplane

    Essential Album: After Bathing At Baxter's

    Pioneers of the Psychedelic Rock genre, they were in the vanguard of the counter-culture of the '60s and '70s.

    9. The Doors

    In spite of a short life and limited discography, they became one of rock's most popular and influential groups.

    10. Moody Blues

    Essential Album: Days Of Future Passed

    With the exception of a few years in the mid-70s, this Progressive/Psychedelic group has toured and recorded since 1964.
