PINK FLOYD #1 in Poll

PINK FLOYD - PINK FLOYD TOP GREATEST ROCK ACT POLL

PINK FLOYD have beaten out competition from LED ZEPPELIN and THE ROLLING STONES to be named the world's greatest rock act of all time.

The WISH YOU WERE HERE band were one of four British groups in the top five, voted for in a poll carried out by UK digital radio station Planet Rock.

Led Zeppelin came second, while The Rolling Stones came third.

Rounding out the top five were THE WHO and Australian veterans AC/DC.

The Top 10 Greatest Rock Acts Of All Time are:

1. PINK FLOYD

2. LED ZEPPELIN

3. THE ROLLING STONES

4. THE WHO

5. AC/DC

6. U2

7. GUNS N' ROSES

8. NIRVANA

9. BON JOVI

10. JIMI HENDRIX.


The Floyd interest grows...hmm could it be that because they performed recently there is more interest than in Led Zeppelin, who have not done anything together since very long ago (due to Bonham's death and they not wanting to perform without the original line up). To me Floyd and Zeppelin are tied in popularity, though I tend to believe there is more Zep love out there at least I see that at my store Mystic Rock.

It's hard to argue with the list! Though,I would think that Black Sabbath, with either Ozzy or Ronnie James Dio, should have made the top ten. I also think Aerosmith is a glaring omition from the top ten.

I whole heartedly agree with you that there seems like a whole lotta love out there for Zep. Though, the media, as usual, always takes a "what have you done for me lately" attitude. And Floyd, being the "hot" act at the moment, gets the nod.

Zep love will never die!

Right you are! Sabbath should have made the top 10, they created a genre and lots of acts base their heavy metal, death metal after Sabbath. Ozzy is much loved. I think The Doors should also have made the top 10. Aerosmith being the bad boys from Boston also have made enough good music to be there as well.
