First of all, the greatest bands are those that transcend the decades and Nirvans had three releases, not exactly Hall Of Fame crdentials.
So, knowing that all have variables in choice, after 30 years of being around this genre, here is a better list with explanantion of those deleted.
1.The beatles...obvious, 100 years from now, if only three musical connetations from the past century could be used, they would be, The beatles, Dylan and presley, no exceptions.
2.ramones-not.....Jefferson Airplane/Starship
3.-Led Zeppelin-a given
4.Marley-a given
5.nirvana - not a chance - Everly brothers
6. Parlisments -not.Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, put Motown on the map, first million sller (Got A Job0
7 The Clash-okay,
8.public enemy- a joke.........Elvis
9.Rolling Stones
10.
beastie Boys, not a chance.......Dylan
11.Velvet Underground
12.

18.AcDC. never had one single in top ten........ELP
19.The Stooges, no, but Iggy Pop, yes
20.Metallica-proved that heavy Metal warrents given consideration of skill
21.The Smiths...not........Dinasours...........with Cippolina
22.Patti Smith..........no way.......Marianne faithfull
23.NWA...a bad joke.............Neil Young
24.Kraftwerk....Moody Blues
25.Sex Pistols
26.Pearl jam
27.Grateful Dead
28.REM
29.Black Sabbeth-no, the original band only played together in 1970 but ozzy, probably
30.Pavement.....Dave Matthews
31.Fugazi-.........Pretty Things.....who actually had the first "rock' opera with S.F. Sorrow and it wasn't The Who doing Tommy
32.Kiss......you're kidding, they will go into the Hall Of fame due to introduction of make-up and pyrotechnics into maistream "rock" but the music sucks........Heart
33.Pretenders...i like them but........The eagles
34.Rage Against...........CSN
35.Fela Kuti......The Band
36.Bowie
37.Blondie???????????.Buffalo Springfield
38.Bad brains.(No kidding)......Mama's and Papa's
39.The Who
40.Flash.........James taylor
41.New order...........Joni Mitchell
42.Husker du..this guy is on crack.......Bob Seger
43.
Guns and Roses.........Carol king

46.Massive attack.........Santana
47.lynyrd skynyrd
48. Korn..........Humble Pie
49.Pink Floyd
50.Red hot Chili Peppers...........Staus Quo
and this seems to be excluding The Corrs, Michael Stanley, after 19 releases and being a great singer, songwriter, has languished in virtual obscurity and the best band on the planet right now, Phil and friends, due to the inclusion of Warren haynes who with Allen Woody and Matt Abpts would have made Govt' mule the next Creram, which i also omitted for some rerason......
Peace
