      Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

          5)Nirvana/Nevermind
          4)Pearl Jam/10
          3)Metallica/Metallica
          2)Emenim/The Marshall Mathers LP
          1)The Eagles/Greatest Hits Volume One and Two

          I have a very broad taste in music. I do recognize other bands greatness but these are the artists that spoke to me. Greatness in music is very subjective, one man's shit is another man's masterpiece. So here's my 2 cents.

              Didn't see the no greatest hits rule the first time through so I'll slide Desperado into the number one slot. What can I say, The Eagles are my favorite band of all time.

                            Gee, no one liked "Stars on 45"?

                            I can't limit myself to 5 either, it's almost impossible, so...

                            Led Zeppelin, "Led Zeppelin (IV)"

                            Alabama, "Mountain Music"

                            and many more, but I can't think right now...

                              R.E.M.- 'Automatic' or 'Murmur'
                              Radiohead- 'The Bends'

                              Belle and Sebastian- 'Tigermilk' or 'The Boy With The Arab Strap'
