    lmao

    they don't qualify as a "band"

    a "band" normally consists of a number of musicians, at least one talented vocalist, and maybe someone capable of writing songs

    also, a "band" needs to be able to perform and sound good without miming or having to have the record company touch up their songs

    Not to mention their stunning live perfomances (the live @ wembley dvd rocks!!!)

    One of the best, if not THE best, bands ever.

    Queen is definitely the best - Under Pressure is my favourite song. I love how The Darkness are in a way bringing back their sound too

    Greatest band ever? Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons rates pretty highly on my list. Though I do love Queen, and of course Metallica is right up there too. Tough question that one mate.

    I am going to be odd here and suggest two of my favourite bands. Joy Divsion and The Bee Gee's.

    A lot of people just think of the Bee Gee's as saturday night fever but they wrote much much more songs like that. A lot of their early stuff has influenced bands like Oasis. Here are some songs the Bee Gee's wrote which you may not have realised. It is very hard to list them though as the Bee Gee's are the most sucessful record producers in the world after the Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

    Words
    Too Love Somebody
    I've Gotta Get A Message To You
    Macashusetts(sp)
    Jive Talkin'
    You Should Be Dancing
    Night Fever
    How Deep Is Your Love
    Too Much Heaven
    Emotion (Desteny's Child recently did a cover)
    Tragedy
    Islands In The Stream (Pras Micheal did a cover of this called Gheto superstar and Dolly Parton made it the second biggest selling country single in the world)
    Chain Reaction
    You Win Again

    There are much much more than this but I can't think at the top of my head.

    Joy Division are one of the most underated bands ever in my opinion. They were one of the first true indie bands. When you listen to their stuff now it dosn't seem 25 years old. New Dawn Fades and Love Will Tear Us Apart are simply classics. Joy Division made realy music and the fact it is still played in night clubs shows how good it is.
