1. Deep Purple - Deep Purple
What Can I Say?

Alongside Led Zeppelin & Black Sabbath, Deep Purple Is One Of The True Pioneers Of Heavy Metal.... Well, Sometimes Its A Shame To See That (Literally) All Major Giants Of The 60's Are Sleeping In The Hall Of Fame! Why Not Deep Purple? I Would Love The MKII Lineup Over There!

I Mean, Seriously, If There Were No Deep Purple, Then There Seriously Wouldn't Have Had Been Those Amazing Bands From The 70's & The 80's We All Love! Deep Purple Really Gave Meaning To The 60's And Sometimes I Wish I Were Born Somewhere Near The 40's So That I Would See Them Live Back In The 60's & Early 70's...... Ah! Nevermind, We Have YouTube! LOL!

It's VIRTUALLY Impossible To Change The World With Your Very First Album... Actually It's Not! Jimi Hendrix Did That Waaay Back In 1967 With Are You Experienced? Well, All I Can Say Is That History Repeated Itself 20 Years After When Guns 'N Roses Released Appetite For Destruction In 1987!

Apart From Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Megadeth, Cream And Countless Others, We Also Saw One Of The Most Greatest Friendships In History: Slash & Axl Rose!

10. The Best of Red Hot Chili Peppers - Red Hot Chili Peppers
I'm Not Talking About The Wanna-Be Post RHCP Funk-Rock Bands! I'm Talking About THE Funk-Rock Band That Is Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Now, As A Kid Growing Up In The 90's, All I Had To Listen To Was Linkin Park, Slipknot & In Flames (And That Was The Time When I Wasnt Properly Exposed To Metallica And Everyone). So, If I Wanted To Listen Something More Funky And Bearable, What Should I Do?


Notable Hits: Californication
Scar Tissue
Dani California
Hump De Bump
Under The Bridge
Stadium Arcadium

Notable Albums: Stadium Arcadium
Blood, Sex, Sugar, Magik

I agree with Deep Purple. They deserve to be in there. I wasn't born until 1957, but I still got to see them in 1973.
They were formed in 1968, but they really had there biggest impact in the early 70's.

I would also like to see Thin Lizzy there one day. They were formed in 1969. The Allman Brothers first album was already released that year, so I wouldn't say they were copying them. As for Lynyrd Skynyrd, they actually started with 3 lead guitarists instead of 2. Wishbone Ash may have been inspired by them. I agree they were probably the best Irish band out there. The 60's band Them with Van Morrison would probably be second. I hate U2.

I am a fan of Scorpions, Priest, and Nirvana, but I think it is too soon for them to join.
