    Default Greatest band ever?

    I believe that Rage against the Machine is the greatest and most influential band of the past 17 years (they came out in 1990 with their self-titled album) At the same time, i think Air sucks....comments?

    You obviously haven't been to your local open-mic lately. Everyone knows that this is the "Greatest Band of all Time". RATM can't shake a stick at the D.

    As popular as they were/are, they're certainly still unique.

    I don't think their "sound" has since been recreated by another band.

    The only thing RATM has bragging rights for is being the most successful band to combine rock and rap. Period.

    Their music is great, but they are certainly not the most influential band of all time.

    Even in just the past 17 years there's quite a few bands better than Rage.

    Yeah, pretty much (but I guess it wouldn't be much of a thread)----you want serious, introspective music done right? Listen to the first three cuts on Beatles For Sale : "No Reply", "I'm A Loser" and "Baby's In Black". They cornered the market on pop, psychedelia and, with just those three songs above, were decades in front of "emo".....

    I'm 21, so the beatles and james brown and shit aren't in my era. The only group that may be more influential is Radiohead, and perhaps Nine Inch Nails, but Rage is the greatest.

    Your age has nothing to do with their level of influence.
