Pink Floyd Possibly the World's Greatest Rock Act

Digital classic rock radio station Planet Rock asked people via a website form: "Which decade had the best Rock?" and to name "three tracks that best represent that decade in your eyes". About 58,000 responses later the results are clear: Pink Floyd Fans are the most dedicated to repeatedly submitting online forms. Rock! I mean, Pink Floyd is "the world's greatest rock act" and the 70s had the best rock. Of course most of these surveys aren't scientific, but for what they're worth, those are the headline results. However, if you read the story from an Irish source, you're likely to see a headline like "U2 in world's greatest rock act list". As long as they're going to use headlines to brag, how about "U2 Better Than Bon Jovi"?

The "Greatest" to "Worst" Rock Decades:

1. 70s
2. 60s
3. 80s
4. 90s

(these were the only decades people could choose)

The "Greatest" Rock Acts:

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

Pink Floyd - Goodbye Blue Sky (from The Wall, etc.)

The Rolling Stones - She's So Cold (from Emotional Rescue, etc.)

U2 - Trash, Trampoline And The Party Girl (from The Best Of 1980-1990, B-side to "A Celebration" single)

Nirvana - Sliver (from Incesticide, etc.)

Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing (from Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix, etc.)

Jimi Hendrix - Night Bird Flying (from Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix, etc.)

Woot! :) I can't work up much enthusiasm for Led Zep (hence the lack of a song by them), but (obviously) they have a lot of fans...
