A cult is often a relatively small and recently founded religious movement.

The best band as a whole unit is Rush of course.

Dream Theatre is too mechanical, and too
Led Zep sucks because they had to many problems and broke up.
Mettallica is really great, but they stopped writing songs like Orian, Katulu, and they don't have any great leads on there last album.

Solo Artists like Vai and Satriani are mainly lead guitar bands where the bass and the drums are not the center of attention.

I figure that best Band as a whole is Rush then because of good bass playing, singing, guitar playing, dumming, lyrics, and sounds and album concepts all together.

Plus they will stay together for a while with a focus on the music. Unlike the non-musical focus of bands that have members with anitsocial habits, drug choices, personality hype sort of bands where, image is more important then music all for the sake of added marketing hype and "entertainment." In other words, Axl Rose really makes me angry.

So I guess Rush wins in my book then.

Cock your guns men and start trying to find out where I live because:

I think Pink Floyd sucks

Anyway I expect some outrage to this but I think it just plain sucks, I'd have to be stoned to enjoy it, but I'm against drugs so I never will enjoy it. Yea some of their big songs are good, I.E. Money, Brick in the Wall Pt.II, etc. but the rest is just mellow bleh ish stuff, it's depressing if you ask me.

But on the original note of the Greatest Band Ever:

Not including individual guitarists like Vai, or Satch, etc. my favorites would have to be:

Van Halen (Just because they are)
Twisted Sister (Ya I know they suck, but they rock!)
Rush (So much talent! Every member is amazing, and there's only 3!)
Whitesnake (Two words: David Coverdale, oh ya and when Steve played in it it was even better.)
Tesla (Holy Hell, they are good! If you don't know them, do some research and start buying albums!)

Ya that's all my favorites, but there's countless other great bands.
